    I was out there 2 weeks ago. The cones were out, but it had something to do with lighthouse tours. I can swing by and take a peek again this weekend and get an update.

    Some people are like Slinkies. They're really good for nothing, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.

    Hi guys - did not get a chance to call the park service today...I will tomorrow or monday. I was thinking if we started early, we could hit AP in the morning, then other locations after. The fort is possible and also local parks, downtown Long Branch, etc. I can get a van and I believe Bob said he could get one. I will take some pictures of locations in Asbury and post them, so everyone gets an idea of what's here. With all the redevelopment going on, they won't last long! - Jim

    Wow! That's very generous. One warning though, I have no clue how to use the thing! I have a nice sturdy tripod.

    What's the recommended 8x10 sheet film to bring?

    I've only got one 8x10" camera so the spare will most likely be the 4x5" Gowland. I'm sure a few of us can show you how to use it. It's only got front movements and is kind of minimalist, but it's enough to start with. I lent this camera to a friend not long ago who used it for an architectural project for several weeks while his two Deardorffs were in the shop.

    It's ultralight, so whatever tripod you use for your Hassy should be fine. It's probably easiest if I preload some film, so why don't you just reimburse me for film afterward. I've got B&W, color slide (Astia), and color neg (some outdated VPS III, untested, but should still be good) on hand--let me know what interests you. Alternately, if you want to shoot Polaroid, let me know, and I'll bring a Polaroid back, and you can pick up whatever Polaroid film you like. You can see what comes in 4x5" sheets at www.polaroid.com.

    OK, no prob.

    Astia please. Tentatively, can you bring the B&W, as well? Read below...

    I have a Polaroid 545i back for my Daylab 120. Will this fit? Plus I've wanted to try the Polaroid 55 film/print combo.

    I may even bring some Type 59, my transfer kit and do some Polaroid transfers right there!

    Bring the 545i back. It fits. Type 55 can be messy if you intend to process it in the field, but people do it (and if you can do transfers in the field, dealing with Type 55 should be a cinch!). You can remove unprocessed packets and pull them later, when you're in a clean environment for coating prints and have your tray of sulfite solution handy. B&H and Calumet sell a bucket with a rack and a cover for soaking the 55 negs in the field as well. Some people just keep a Tupperware container with the sulfite solution.

    I've always got some Grafmatics loaded with B&W, so that's no trouble either.

    I'm bringing my 5x7 Sinar P2, anybody want to carry it for me? Carrying it will be a better introduction to large format photography than actually looking through the ground glass.

    I hope it doesn't rain after all this planning...

    Hi Guys- I spoke with the superintendent of Sandy Hook today. She is sending me the permit info in the mail. If we do this, we must be accompanied by a park ranger and the fee is $45.00 per hour. I am going to go scout the area next week, take pictures and post them, so you can get an idea of what it looks like. From what I remember, it is a lot of of concrete bunkers, rusting staircases, etc.
