If anyone wants to meet up the night before, I'll be staying at the Hampton Inn in Flemington, NJ. I should be there by 3 or 4pm on Saturday.

Regards, Art.

I have a photo shoot in South Jersey on Saturday, but could be back by 7 or 8 p.m., possibly earlier if I get an early starty in the morning. I can then meet with anyone who is interested. We could hang out in my studio in Frenchtown and get some good Italian food one short block away.

BTW, some good shots to be had in Frenchtown.

What is the best route to take from MA ? I plan to leave around noon on sat. I did a yahoo map of the route and it takes me though a lot of confusing routes, can I take I90 - I84 straight to NJ ?Since you mentioned I-84, I would suggest the following:

I-84
to
I-684
to
I-287 (W)
to
Garden State Parkway (enter NJ)
to
I-80 (E, towards NYC)
to
I-95 (S), aka, NJ Turnpike (S)
to
I-195 (W) --- exit 7A on NJ Turnpike (S)
to
NJ-129
to
NJ-29 (N)

Alternatively, you could take I-95 from I-87 after I-684, but this route goes through the city and I would avoid it. Also, please note that the Garden State Parkway (GSP) and the NJ Turnpike are toll roads. NJ EZPass works in MA, so I guess the reverse is true as well.

The Prallsville Mills is in the town of Stockton, and is located on NJ-29 (N) a little way beyond Lambertville. You should watch out for a tall red building (see attachment).

Note: NJ-29 turns left into downtown Lambertville. Make sure you do not miss this turn (not easy to miss), or else you will end up on NJ-179.

Hope you have a safe trip.

This is really the long way. Great if one would want to see a not-so-nice part of NJ. It's about 30 miles longer than the directions I had given earlier. Not very direct...

Great! I am still planning to join on Sunday morning from Westchester, NY with my Hassy. Will bring some polaroid films and holder if you can kindly to show me how LF works. Keeping my fingers crossed for the weather. Looking forward to meeting you all in person.

30% chance of rain with possibly a "few showers" should be OK. We will keep an eye on the weather though.

Thanks, Manjo, for sending me the link.

Great to have you on board. I will have an extra 4x5 camera along for you to use your Polaroid film.

See you Sunday.

Not very direct...That may be so, but I gave the route that I am familiar with. Nobody had posted an answer to the question, so I ventured a reply. Maybe you can post better directions instead of merely saying so - I didn't see any in the thread.

Gentlemen (and ladies, in case I missed you) -
A few last minute considerations -
I gave out some directions through PM's and phone calls to those who needed them, but there is a change, I-78 Clinton Exit 15 is closed for repairs. Get off at Exit 16, NJ31 South. Take NJ31 to its intersection with US202. Continue on US202 South to NJ29. Go North one mile to mill complex on left. The entrance is at the far end of the complex; the first driveway is the exit.
I reconfirmed with the Mill Society yesterday (Thurs.) and yes, we can photograph inside. There will be a docent giving historical tours, so we will have to limit photographers to one or two at a time inside when the docent is actually giving a tour. You definitely want to photograph in the basement, but will need Tungsten film if shooting color.
My photo shoot for tomorrow has not been confirmed. If I do not have a shoot, I will be working in the studio all day and will be available to get together with anyone who is in the area for dinner and chit-chat. My studio is at 108 Harrison Street, 2nd Floor in Frenchtown, 12 miles north of Stockton on NJ29. It is also accessible from Flemington by going west on NJ12 to the end. Studio phone is 908-996-2484 and my cell is 732-735-2597.
Robert Triffen is going to Calumet today and can pick up any supplies if anyone needs them. Call him 610-449-7853 and arrange for what you need.
I will be at the Mill about 8 a.m. if anyone wants to come early. Let me know.
Little chance for rain tomorrow. Awesome!!!!
I will update later today or tomorrow as necessary.

And also Calumet has some just expired Kodak tungsten 4X5 sheet film for half the price. I think is around 50 bucks for a 50 sheet box.

I will see you guys there. Have a safe trip.

If anyone has an extra piece of 4x5 ground glass that they can lend me for tomorrow, I would appreciate it. Mine is broken. Thanks - Jim
