If I can find a transatlantic flight for under $100, I'll be there.

Ha ha! I just saw this! I am actually flying in the opposite direction right after this training, and amazingly it was only $420 there and back!

Not quite your $100 limit though :)

Have starting times been decided upon for the two sessions? Hoping the Tarrywile session is later in the morning rather than earlier--not that you should build the schedule around me! I should be there regardless, just a question of how much sleep I will have had! (Gotta go contra dancing with the honey Friday night.)

Why shouldn't a Tarrywile event be scheduled around you? :-)

Niels and I did come up with a schedule, but I can't remember it and I'm on a train! I'll e mail him and try to get an answer :)

10-11am starts Tarrywile (exercise will take less than an hour)

Midday lunch at ??

1.30-2.30pm starts at Mountain Lakes

The place I was thinking of suggesting for lunch looks to have closed down, so if anyone has suggestions of a place in Bethel or similar, it'd be nice to eat together.

More details to come later this week!

In other news, can anyone give me a ride from New Haven? I am getting the train into the city and flying out after the training.

Shopping center in Cross River, junction of NY 35 and 121 which is vaguely on route from Tarrywile to Mt Lakes has Asian, a bagel/sandwich shop, Mexican and Di Ciccios (?) supermarket which has reasonable sandwiches/salads and deli plus craft beer for bribing Head Goat on Sunday.

There's a walk to the leg that we'll be running at Tarrywile in the morning. If you want to save your legs a big, there's a new file marked "logistics" in the drive - there's a drop off point marked there. You'll have to come see us first at the usual parking (north end, below the Mansion) to get your maps.

If you haven't registered are are interested in coming, we'll have a few extra maps!
