    Hello everybody, I was inspired and came up with this idea a few days ago by a post that Nick @Blais03 put in the NE BS thread. Nicks post was of a camping trip that he had made this year in which one of his pictures was of a beautiful waterfall. So my idea/plan is to make a exploration trip in which we visit 2 to 3 waterfalls a day for a long weekend when the schools get out for the summer in the end of June 2018.

    Nick's inspirational picture

    I'm still working out the logistics on the exact locations. Like I said before, I want to make this so we can see 2 to 3 waterfalls a day for a 3 day weekend with camping on Fri and Sat night. I figure this is a great way to get together with other local TW'ers who enjoy the outdoors plus the camping together is inspired to me by how people from TW get together from other parts of the country. Lastly I am starting this now so that anyone who is interested can have/make time to join in as well as give input for the planning of this trip


    I will be continuously updating this post as needed and post # 2 will be for the actual details/route of the trip


    EDIT; The date for the trip is June 22nd-24th

    Wow guys I am just blow away with the responses so far of this idea and I only hope this trip lives up to everybody's expectations. I just wanted to say a big thank you to everyone right from the start.



    OK so here are some teaser plans as of right now. The planned times for each location will be finalized and available soon so this post may be changed as needed, please keep checking on it.. I want to give the times we plan to arrive at each spot so the people that want/need to meet up can plan to do so at whatever location we are going to be at, at whatever time is convenient for them.

    On our 1st day I plan to visit 4 waterfalls with most of them having a very easy hike to them. The meeting place for those that want to caravan the trip will be at the Visitors Center at Quechee Gorge, V.T. across the street from the Quality Inn @ 9:30 am. There is nice view of the Gorge from a nearby bridge and it's a short hike to the gorge from the Visitors Center so if you want to hike the trail please plan accordingly and get there early.

    I booked the night before the tour at the Quality Inn in Quechee as the meeting location is right across the street. If anyone else wants to do the same below is the information

    Quality Inn at Quechee Gorge
    5817 Woodstock Rd.,
    Quechee, VT, US, 05059
    +1 (802) 295-7600


    The 1st destination of the day will be the Moss Glen Falls in Granville, VT. From there we will be going to Bartlett Falls in Bristol, VT which has a huge pool at the base of it so anyone that wants to swim in the crisp water bring your bathing suites! 3rd stop will be at the Ben & Jerrys factory for a short tour and treat. The 4th stop will be Moss Glen Falls (yes the same name as the 1st one but a different place) in Stowe VT and lastly to Bingham Falls also in Stowe VT. The end of the day will end up being camping @ Brewster River Campground.

    Because I was not exactly sure on the number of people that will be going the owner of the campground is going to be taking payment the day of. Just so that everyone knows he does not have a CC system on site so please bring $5 cash per person for the amount of people that is saying with you for the night and also for any firewood that you might want to buy

    Lol, when I typed that last night I thought about you too (not creepy, just that I remember you saying you don't camp). We should have an exact route by the time it comes so if anybody wants to book a room they will know what area to look in.
    With that said, the camping part is much more than sleeping in a tent/RTT/whatever. There is cooking (some people really make awesome food!) and campfires with plenty of drinking and hanging around telling stories with friends. I am looking forward to the camping as much as I am looking forward to the waterfalls!!!
    I hadn't thought of ENH for this trip, I'll look into it thanks. There are also a few other websites that I already found that I will be using as resources as well
