    Hey folks - I will contact the park and try to set a trip for sometime after Labor Day. I will scout the bunkers and post photos for you to see on the thread. Hope all is well. - Jim

    Hi Jim, Any dates tossed around yet? I'm good for the 10th., 17-18, or Oct 1-2. I sure hope to make it again. This time to spend more than half a day. Some guy from way in South Jersey on another thread was interested. He found out too late for AP. I'll dig through the old posts and contact him when you set a date.

    I don't have a scanner and could not figure out how to post a photo anyway. But I'm real happy with a shot I took in the northern hall looking south. Hope to remember to bring a print to SH.

    Should I bring my pre 1900 RR? It would be neat to see some other soft focus lenses (or just real old) and then the prints from them at a later date.

    Hey Guys - For those interested in a trip to the bunkers at Sandy Hook, Please list dates you AREN'T available. I am only available on Sundays, so I hope that is ok with everyone. I apologize for not being more aggresive with this trip but I have taken on a day job, which keeps me busy about 60 hours a week and add another 20 for darkroom work. If anyone could help coordinate with me, it would be appreciated. Thanks - Jim

    I'm very interested, but there is a distinct possiblilty I'll be sent down to the Gulf Coast sometime in the next couple of weeks for disaster relief duty. If I'm in town, I'll be there!

    Hmmm, dead thread? Getting to be time for "fall colors" (of course w/all this rain we may end up with just a general rotting brown :sad: ) in NJ. What happens if I just toss a date like 10/30 - we get an extra hour sleep night before!

    Not dead for me. Sandy Hook would not have any trees with color anyway. Some bushes yeah, but I'm a B&W dude. I'll go the 30th.

    I have a portrait session scheduled for the 30th (a last minute gig), but if I finish early, I'll try to run out there and find you guys...

    Sandy Hook is great. Spend some time at the Mortar Pits (see attached). Lighthouse is right across the street from them.

    I'd love to go, but I want to go with my new LF system which won't be complete by then. Pending schedule / weather, it may be a fun Holga day. We'll see.

    LOL, well, was it any fun? No, I didn't realize that. Funny that it's at the top of the board. Guess you NY/NJ people don't get together much.... :confused:
