Sunset at Haleakala Crater—January 2005 © David Brotsky
Directions - We will be within Lewis Morris Park in various locations.
270 Mendham Rd Morristown, NJ 07960. We will be at a picnic pavilion in the park and final directions will be supplied to those coming. This is near Morristown, NJ, within 1 hr of Manhattan.
The park is a little more than 3 miles from the train station in Morristown and it's a short uber ride away for those without an easy ride. Happy to coordinate people who need a ride onto the same train so you can uber together to the event.
Please do not use GPS exclusively – it will get you only close to the park and not to the right place within the park, so print and follow along on the directions. Please note that there is a $10 per car entrance fee for the park, which is included in the ride fee when you offer to take 3 passengers or the van fee.
For those coming hiking, you need to meet by 11:30 AM, for those going to swimming and/or on the nature walk you need to meet by 12:00 PM.
Manhattan, Riverdale , Monsey, Queens & Brooklyn—1 Hr and 15 minutes
Teaneck & Passaic - 1 hr
Central NJ – 45 minutes
Long Island – 1hr, 30 minutes
Rides, Van & Train Option
We may try and arrange rides, likely via a google docs spreadsheet we will start to post as of Tuesday for those who register, so the earlier you register the easier it will be to get a ride— from our experience, we usually manage to get most people rides of some sort. The ride fee will be $20 round trip. For drivers who take at least 2 passengers, you will more than cover your driving expenses. Passengers, please pay the driver $20 when you enter the car. They are doing you a favor, so please have the money available in cash.
If we have enough people who need transportation but cant get a ride, we will see about a van or bus option, likely adding $25—$35 per person for transport to and from the event. We may also then send people on the train - see below. Let us know your preferences on the RSVP questionnaire.
