    I was wondering if any fellow Massachusetts members would be interested in meeting up. I live in Western Massachusetts, about 15 minutes away from plenty of state parks, trails, and places to have a sweet cookout or something.

    Obviously, MA can be a little nippy in the winter time, so we could possibly schedule a summer thing, giving us all plenty of time to coordinate plans. I just happened to see that there were quite a few people from Western Mass. and I thought it would fun to have a hangout session with some like minded individuals. :4:

    Wow, awesome! I didn't know it would get a response this quick.

    I figured I'd throw the idea out now, and we can all hash out an idea of what we can do.

    I live in Alaska now but I'm coming to visit family in February if it's around that time I'd come. I'll also be down in the summer.

    Well, I happened to stumble my way upon this great forum again (remembered my password, lol) and figured I'd revive this thread and see if anyone still wanted to possibly meet up?

    Jay, the meet is still on, same place, the Freetown State Forest, but it's been moved to April 30th., as usually all you have to bring is yourself and anything that makes you comfortable in the way of gear, we'll have enough food, there's always someone with a pot of tea or coffee on the fire, Rick is bringing some of his sugar bombs.
    We're really looking forward to catching up.

    See you there,
    Moe

    Go to Forums, scroll down to Locals, click on that and scroll down to New England, you'll find it close to the top of the page. :dblthumb:

    If you're within range, don't miss it, It's a great day with a bunch of really nice and skilled people, and it's family friendly.
