      My cell is 845-417-8292 but I don't answer on road.  My MD put me on the z pak this morning, so I expect it will kick in by Wed. Anyone else going?

      Thank you Diane,
      Yes it is Liberty State Park.
      Winds are predicted to be 5 mph.

      I plan to get there early, so if I have your phone number, I can call about any details at Liberty Park.

      Ellen Kelly’s trip to Vermont:
      Two days of kayaking,
       27 miles of  road riding,
      dancing at an open air concert.
      Lots of food (I still have some left for breakfast this morning). 
      Down-hill biking off the gondola at Killngton,
      Trail riding in Rutland , if I have any energy left.

      I'm reposting with copy/paste Walt's message about Statue of Liberty paddle to avoid it being lost in the "seal" thread. 
      Walt probably intended "Liberty State Park" not "Freedom Park"

      For a recap: Walt and I had considered Vikki's  (HV kayakers and beyond) Lady Liberty meetup but wanted to try for better weather/tide/current conditions.  Paddlers should be comfortable in big boat wake and with assisted rescues, and have a 131/2 ft kayak with bow/stern bulkheads/SOT with deck lines for this paddle.  Bring a marine radio if you have one. Drive is approximately  2 hours from Kingston according to goggle maps so we should be able to easily avoid morning rush hour traffic.  Diane

      "Wednesday looks like the best day of the week.

      Mostly sunny with a high of 83 degrees.

      I don’t have any wind forecasts yet, but I expect them to be fairly calm.

      If we get to Freedom Park by 11:30, we should be fine.

      I haven’t been to Freedom Park for a couple years, so I will get there early to check it out.

      My cell phone is 845-489-3999.
