Acadia Trip Notes:

Over the course of this week (Friday NOON at the latest) bring your bicycle to the Wyatt's (next to Wilson School parking lot) - unless you're sure you have made other arrangements to get it to Acadia. We'll load it into a trailer for transport to Acadia.

Also, over the course of this week, contact the person you think you're tenting with, and who you think you're travelling with to confirm plans.

Friday Gear Collection & Distribution, Standard drill:
If you don't have room for it, bring your stuff to the Wyatt's, & put it on the tarp in the garage.
If you have extra room, stop by and load up with what's on the tarp.
