  • Glen Gray weekend
    All, we will meet at Mr. Costa's house instead of Echo Lake and will leave NO LATER than 6pm tomorrow.  

    Camp Glen Gray address is:
    200 Midvale Mountain Road, Mahwah, NJ

    We need your permission slips and emergency contact as we need to provide the camp of the roster and contacts.

    I have attached a zip file of a bunch of geocaches at the camp. Download geocaching or c:geo for android users and load that file for offline use.  I think those 2 have apps for geocaching and may let u load the attached file for use.  I will also bring a gps with the caches loaded.

    Weather looks good. 50 degrees in the day. You know what to bring.

  • Glen Gray cabin camping - this weekend
    This weekend we will be cabin camping and doing orienteering and maybe some geocaching. Due to a snafu, there is no meeting tonight and i am unable to talk to the scouts and parents who are going.  Those going please fill out the permission slip that Mrs Fee posted yesterday, take a picture and email or text it to me so that we have a head count for food and transportation, and I can file the required tour plan. I need to get those done tomorrow.

    Those going:
    Pack light !
    Long pants and long sleeve shirt
    Bug/tick spray as we will be wondering in the woods
    Water/nalgenne bottle
    Orienteering compass (see my post from last week)
    Whistle (very important!)

    There will be a short hike to the cabin, so have your flashlight handy, and pack everything well.  It is a heated cabin, you don't need heavy sleepware or sleeping bag.

    Again, please email/txt me if you are going.
