Oooh...itching and stinging just thinking about those anthills...we've got 'em on our lawn and they are such a NUISANCE! :-)

Off road generally isn't my thing unless it's fairly smooth...my bike doesn't handle bumps so well. Did the dirt trail in MI last May for 45 miles though and that went well!

Don if you like biking off road... you'd LOVE oakly corners.. I even know where there's a HUGE blueberry patch! emoticon It's awesome for hiking.. there's also some spectacular views of 4 foot high ant hills.. NO KIDDING on those! :)

I know CVSP like the back of my hand and have been to Greenwood a few times, not familiar with Oakley Corners State Forest...but hey I'm open to any neat place outdoors.

Going to be out of town the weekend of August 6-8 and August 21 but I don't believe other weekends are taken...except...my biking schedule...trying to arrange for major biking most weekends. So don't necessarily plan around me as I need to stay focused on "gearing up" for my big event late September.

Is anyone else bringing kids or family? My husband has to go in to work today so I will be flying solo with my little ones. I'm planning on coming with them, not sure what if anything I'll be able to do besides hang out and meet everyone.

Sunday looks to be much better weather-wise also...I will be doing the Binghamton Bridge ride earlier in the day (c'mon folks, won't ANYONE join me on that..? www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_mes
sa
geboard_thread.asp?board=14307x21611R>x34216669
), but could be free by 1 or so...?

Everyone post and encourage your fellow Team members to join in and post to this thread and RSVP the SparkRally which I'll edit for Sunday @ 1 pm.

I think I'll bring a pasta / veggie / part-skim mozzarella cheese salad. We'll eat first, paddle or walk 2nd. :-)

I would be able to make it on Sunday if we wanted to move it just one day. Unfortunately tomorrow is booked for me, I'll be running my first timed 5K!!

I'll keep an eye out and see what changes and then get back to you all.

So far the only replies are you, me and Don. Next weekend wont work for me but this summer is just a really, really busy one for me.
I'm fine with changing it though, especially if more people can make it.

The weather is looking a lot cooler but the forecast is calling for rain.
Do you think we'll have a rain date?
I'm planning on coming but wont be able to spend a lot of time. I have way too much going on right now including studying for a teacher exam that I feel really unprepared for and it's next week! Yikes!!
Anyways, I'd really like to me whoever can make it, even if I can only stay for about an hour.

Bring your walking shoes and / or swimming suit...your choice!

Also bring a dish / food to share. Bring your own beverage, plates, plasticware. You also may want to bring chairs, frisbees, volleyballs & other fun stuff!

Here are directions to the park:

Be sure to RSVP at the SparkRally link and if possible post what dish you plan to bring here at this thread so we can avoid TOO much duplication.

Looking forward to catching up and having fun with everyone!
