Andrew,

Great. Gary and Bart are on board. I've been hoping for this kind of breakthrough. By rights, CT should have TTs to match those at the same latitude in NY. Other people miss these sites because they are always looking for big trunks. It takes an Ent to spot the slender stuff of exceptional height. Let's hope for good weather.

Will you be able to make it it Cook Forest in April?

I would be super stoked to be there with you at Devils' Den. The 28th sounds good.

Andrew, Bob,

like Ryan I would be excited to go too! I'm pretty sure I can make it on the 28th if you don't mind the growing number of participants.

Doug, Ryan,

The more the merrier. We can work out the details and timing over the next few days. Let's hope for favorable weather.

Proposal for meet up 1/28

Post by AndrewJoslin » Sun Jan 22, 2012 7:22 pm

I'd like to propose we meet here 10AM Saturday morning 1/28:
Redding Roadhouse
406 Redding Road, Redding, CT

There's a large dirt parking lot behind the restaurant, we can consolidate into fewer cars depending on how many attend, 5 minute drive to the Dayton Rd. parking area which is a small pullover. We can probably survey the target trees in an hour or less.

Next we can return to the Roadhouse and everyone drive to the southern end of Devil's Den Preserve and enter at the main entrance. Proposal is to hike in to the second location indicated earlier in the thread.

We could start earlier except it's a 3 hour drive for me so 10am meeting time is a little friendlier to my sleep requirements ;-)

Got room for 2 more? Its been years and years since we were mineral collecting in Redding. Now we can check out the trees and maybe find some geocaches along the way! Sam

Of course Sam, all tree hunters welcome. I'm not promising the moon but the site itself is promising. A worthy start to finding new trees in Connecticut.
