Thought I'd ask this way publicly from you if someone from New York area would read this.
Me and club mate of mine are going to NYC at the end of Sep, and this time I'd like to test out the famous Blue Mtn. I have that one map you gave me few years back but would be nice to have another one. This time we're with public transport so I could pick that map either next to some train stop or then of course PDF (or similar). That map that you gave me seems to be way over 10 years old but I guess that area doesn't change that much?
So any idea whom should I contact?

moikka !

I guess you have the offset-printed one with the nice map layout and all. It has been updated since, about 5 years ago (I have a copy). It's a ten-minute walk from Peekskill station to the map, so pretty ideal for tourists.

kpop and chinghua should be reading this, they and others may join you for training. There's even half a chance I may be around.

kpop might be a bit busy this week :) It is a great map, and a wonderful terrain... well worth a visit!

no excuses... ;)

Yeah, first things first! ;)

In case either one of them or you can't join, how could we get the map (or even 2 updated ones)? We will be in NYC Sep 24th - 28th. Best days for the training would be 25th - 27th.

I should have pdfs of this somewhere , and of the middles.

Interesting. I might be looking for something to do before the Classic Champs.

Get that?

So anyone else interested to do some training? I have 3 maps printed.

I guess there's some champs this weekend. We could do the training Mon or Tue.

Any tips where to leave a back bag while doing the training?

Check with me tomorrow morning. If I'm healthy, I'm in. Otherwise, Tuesday or later...

If I'm in, I'll have a car. Not so sure where to stash a bag.

Well write here which way it is. We've planned to be there tomorrow before noon. Seems Tue is rainy.

I won't do a long, but I'll happily come out and maybe run a little or have lunch or whatever. There are people going for dinner in Peekskill at 6 if you are interested.

Are you taking the train to Peekskill? What time will you arrive? I'm picking up a car at 10am in NJ, so I could be there a bit after 11. Reply by email :)
