New Paltz Redux
posted June 6, 2015 8:49 PM   RSS

I'll be in New Paltz on Sunday the 21st and wanted to see if we could turn it into a meetup. [I set the location to New York proper because New Paltz may be too far away for some people to get the meetup notification in their e-mail.]
Note this day is Father's Day, but I'm there to run a half in the morning, so the date is not negotiable. I'm driving up the evening before and grabbing an Airbnb or a hotel room or something, so I won't be available to shuttle people the morning of, but if anyone wants to get in on the coming up the night before action, I'm cool with passengers and splitting a room. I can take people back, but note I will likely be on a specific timeline because of the car reservation.

unannihilated likes to drink beer and eat food and relax after her long runs, so last year's itinerary seemed mostly good, minus the hike. Though I could maybe handle a hike if I can manage to sneak a nap in.

I'm in. As per last year, my minivan is available again for any pick ups/drop offs at either/both of the Poughkeepsie or Beacon Metro-North stops.

Unfortunately, I have to work, so we will have to take a pass. Have fun!

Well, shit, sad I missed last year's, right here in my place. Not sure about this year's, since I'm married to a dad now, and all, but I could pop by Bacchus if we end up staying in town for the holiday.

Wish I could but I will be busy that day. I really enjoyed last year's meetup!

What's the best time for everyone?

I was actually going to suggest that we should probably just cancel this since only two people are coming.

Upstate gatherings are often low-key affairs. PhoBWanKenobi and Eideteker may still be in, though some proposed timetable would be helpful for them to plan their day, given committments (Eideteker particularly has his birthday that day, and was interested in making his way over as part of a quick run before meeting up with other MeFites.)

With a good part of the week still remaining, it might be best to ask what everyone else's best time would be, as there's no word on weither this was to be a late morning, midday or late afternoon/evening turnout.

Yeah, there's been a change in my schedule and I'm not sure I'll be able to make this anymore, depending on what time this thing winds up being.
