Time: Sunday June 24, (weather pending Monday the 25th)

 

Locations: Prospertown Lake, situated Directly Next to 6 Flags Great Adventure. We will be meeting at the Parking Lot to Prospertown Lake between 9:30am and 10:00am. There we'll be exploring the population of Trachymyrmex septentrionalis. Don't be too worried about arriving late as we'll likely be the only people there who are not fishing. There is a slave making Formica in the woods there too we might be lucky enough to find.

 

As a secondary location we'll be heading south to the New Jersey Wild Outdoor Expo. Which we've never been to before also visiting Success Lake looks like it might be promising for another Trachymyrmex population.

 

New Jersey Wild Outdoor Expo

299 E Colliers Mill Rd, New Egypt, NJ 08533

 

At some point we will likely get food somewhere too, but we'll be playing that by ear.

 

If Attending: Ideally you should be a legal adult and able to provide your own transportation to and from the ant together locations. Carpooling if you can. Bug Spray is highly recommended and maybe brush up on the snakes of New Jersey as we usually come across one or two on these trips.

Hi Milta,

 

I think my brother and I may be interested in attending. You've proposed the weekend of July 23 as a viable time—will this be an overnight trip? If so, I'm assuming we'll be taking care of lodging ourselves?

 

I'll be in touch via pm or text regarding any other details.

Well most people attending this I expect will be from the area. 2 hours or less really isn't that far to drive knowing there's a comfy bed at the end. Plenty of places around though I'm sure if needed. I wasn't planning to do black any black lighting, though I recall you have a portable generator so we might throw that out there as an option. Usually we all disperse shortly after dinner though. We might do pizza place for lunch and a dinner for dinner or something.

 

Also that weekend Whitesbog is having a Blueberry Festival, which is awkward for me because friends from different social circles want to attend that. (Also the address on their link is some guy's house. Whites bog is just a bit farther down 70 but still on their map). Sort of juggling with the idea of doing both or combining the two because Whites Bog was another location I was thinking about for an anting trip. Perhaps later in July we'll do that?

Okay so as my schedule becomes more clear I request that this be on Sunday the 24th. The prior Saturday doesn't work for me anymore. So before this officially gets planned lets make it on that Sunday. There can be a rain date of Monday or Tuesday if need be, but I don't know what everyone's work schedule is like. 

 

And yes, it won't be too far. We usually keep it in NJ (central or south). 

 

I'd like to see a bunch of people go this year! Let's make this happen. :)

I have updated our itinerary in the first post above. Hopefully it's a nice day out and I look forward to seeing you all there.
