Spring time 2014 gathering North Jersey?

Hey folks, Im seeing we have a fair amount of members in NJ, Pa, NY... how about a get together in the spring near the Delaware water gap? Preferably a Park vs a more expensive camp ground.

Oooo... and you all could go rock collecting up in Ogdensburg and Franklin! I might even see if I can convince The Dot that we should travel out east!

Gary, could you post a link about this rock collecting? Im planning a trip with some friends in the spring to herkimer ny for diamond mining but always up for a little work to collect things that I can possible craft with lol.

Besides, there are alot of hiking options in the DelawareGap area, as well as canoeing, rafting etc. And sit round and drink and eat(well nibble for me lol)

My pleasure...

New Jersey Museum & Landmark, Sterling Hill Mining Museum
(Click the above to go there!)

The Franklin Mineral Museum
(Click the above to go there!)

And just to show what you can collect... here's one I got a number of years ago (Under Shortwave UV, of course!). This beauty weighs over 20 pounds!

The Herkimer "diamond" (actually doubly-terminated quartz) is a great spot to collect. A lot of the mines have camping right at the mine!

Cool! Yeah this could be a nice fun simple weekend fiberglass trailer get together!

A little activity and then lotsa relaxation time!

I think Promised Land SP as well as French Creek and Rickets Glenn SP, here in Pa are open year round and therefore available before open season later in the springtime. These are in the eastern part of the state close to Jersey, Delaware, New York.

There is a KOA directly across the street from the Herkimer mines. It's a lovely CG along the West Canada Creek. We've camped there many times!

Heh yeah I try to avoid higher priced parks that offer facilities Im not really interested in using, sadly I live on a strict budget...state parks are more my speed and budget. The Herkimer weekend I was planning with another set of friends that is gonna be a working weekend since we want to come home with a bunch of shinies lol

For a local fiberglass trailer get together I was thinking of the Delaware Gap area because its sort of in the middle of a bunch of us in the NY/NJ/Pa area.

Good ol' Cape May Diamonds. Let's hear it for glaciation! I remember collecting those cute little quartz pebbles when I was a kid on the beach opposite the concrete ship.

It's pretty much fallen apart. Back in the 50's <gasp!> it was still there with a big insurance advertisement painted on the side. And, by golly, I found a picture from the 50's in my "digitized" folder:
