I would be interested Don, if it's during the week, but I would think most people would want to meet on a weekend day.

I was figuring on a weekend for most people, but does not have to be.

This Saturday is supposed to be quite cold, and I am tied up Sunday. Next weekend I'm out of town. What if we aimed for either the 18th or 19th, to be determined by what works for the most folks on here, and obviously subject to weather? Maybe aiming for 2 weeks out will give anybody interested time to schedule it, and even if it turns warm the brush is not going to fill in that soon.

Perhaps meet at the parking lot for the park, at the foot of Boxart Street, and walk down across the bridge over the turning basin. Anybody interested in setting something up?


I'm in!

would be either Sat (Flex on hours) or Sunday (in the morning only since I need to hit the road for Long Island) Keep me in loop on date and time

If it fits my wife's schedule I'd be interested.

Sounds good!

CPSmith is wintering in warmer latitudes I believe. But then again he's already seen it, altho with summer foliage hiding a lot of it.

Guess it goes without saying, but I don't think THIS weekend is going to work! :P We'll try again when things melt.

Ken, those weather girls may be better looking than me, but I've got something which sadly seems to be quite rare these days - common sense! It tells me that either there will be so much snow on the ground we won't be able to see much, or it will have all melted and the earth will be a giant mudhole. Either way, I'm out'a there! Image

BR&P, you must be getting soft in your old age, 55 years ago you would have walked down the right away to Charlotte looking for the first belt and it's 3 or 4 RS-1s on a day like today.

You produce the 4 RS-1's at Charlotte, and I'll gladly walk from Barnard's to Charlotte in any weather you care to select! Image

If anyone can string 3 or 4 operating RS-1s together, I'll guarantee you the foam would be deeper than the snow we have now.
