NEPK is used a lot for the New England'ers. At least that is what I've been told. Connecticut is a difficult place to get Jams going because there are many that in location; spread apart.

I agree guys.  Anyone up for anything before the summer is over?  Any day is fine.  We've got some fantastic woods in Trumbull, actually I was exploring and found some land with a pretty long creek with loads of rocks, a cliff ranging from 30 feet in height to about 10, some mini islands (10ftx10ft?), and a small wooden bridge.

Sounds promising I guess, but I haven't found any time to train there yet. 

EDIT: That spot is extremely close to a pretty big wooden playground with railings, small wooden balance beams, a small sand pit, a few picnic tables, some big trees, soft grass, and a tiny water park with 4 or 5 fountains to cool off in if we get hot.  I have trained there and it's pretty awesome, thousands of oppurtunities.  It's got loads of different playthings that I haven't seen in any other playground.

That sounds amazing. I'm available only on Weekends because of my internship at Sloan-Kettering.

Yes, that does sound quite amazing. I hope I can get a ride there soon.

Mmm...how does sometime next weekend sound guys? (next weekend being the one after this one). I can't make any promises yet but I'm pretty sure I have nothing to do.  We can just get some idea of who'd like to come and what time.

I'll be able to make it, hopefully. I'm not doing anything, but once again transportation might be trouble.

Ok guys!  As of right now we will be meeting at the playground in Indian Ledge Park in Trumbull at 3:00 PM on Sunday the 29th.  Here are the directions, just ignore the part that says "High school parking" on the second page.  The directions can be a bit confusing so feel free to ask questions.  The park is on Whitney Ave.  I'm also going to post this in the jam section in a bit, peace!
