Sunday still a go? If we want to switch it to Saturday to accomodate Chris thats cool with me, but I wouldnt be able to make it till 3 or 4ish. Which is still cool with me. Just let me know.

If its Sunday...I will probably be making it down there before 9 and doing Tannery at sunrise.

Go ahead with Sunday then. No need to go out of the way to accomodate me on this. Like I said, Julie & I make it out to Naples 2 or 3 times a summer anyway. :up:

That reminds me, I've heard there's a lean-to a little ways above Angel Falls at Conklin Gully, but haven't sought it out yet. Any truth to this?



Ive never seen it but its possible...I think the Bristol spur of the FLT runs through there.


There is a lean-to along the angel falls tributary. Heres a map of all the trails and lean-to's in the area:
Trail Map

Also, if interested there is a small gully on this map just south of Conklin that can be accessed from the FLX Trail. My hiking friend and I call this Hatch Hill Falls. Its dry come summer but has some nice falls this time of year. I will post some photos in the falls section sometime soon.

I'm still on the fence. I have to get out of trailering horses to a show on Sunday. If I do come, I'll camp at Keuka Lake Saturday night, and can make Conklin at 9.

It's looking like the weather may squash us again. Now they're saying daytime rain clearing overnight. :angry:

Snow???? :shock: Unless it changes to 100% rain I'm still down to go. 70s and a chance of rain wont deter me.

I'm confirmed for and commited to Sunday, as is Ben. You said you were gonna get there super early and do Tannery, right? What time are you planning on arriving for Tannery? We _may_ be able to get there for that, depending on how early you were thinking. If we can't make that, we'll plan on meeting you at Conklin around 9ish. We'll be in a very red Monte Carlo with Ohio plates.... Probably parked right about here, and perhaps a little like this:

:)

Weather.com is saying occasional showers, highs in the 70's, with an overall 30% chance of rain. Of course this is New York, so........................................

I think i will take a drive down after the race, regardless of the weather... at the very least i can pick up a grape pie for the lost finale (I have a feeling I'm going to need it).
