Well that was dumb of me.  Signing up for an event without thinking to see how far it is from me.

This is really local and I havent been on a hike in a while - I'll say maybe.  I had no idea this existed.

Comment by Joshua 'Silby' Silberman on March 19, 2012 at 2:32pm

I'd love to come.  Is there any chance I could catch a ride with someone out of the Hoboken or Jersey city area?  I'd be happy to chip in for gas.  silby654@gmail.com

It really is "cleverly hidden"...I've lived in Old Bridge for the last 10 years and had no idea this was right on the other side of town.  Have to wait and see what my schedule is.  Sunday is usually a work day for me.

I will actually not be going. I signed up then realized its same day as a friends bachelor party.
