Vikki & I are going to be at my family's cottage for the weekend and want you to come too! Its located in southeastern CT near a small lake. We'll be there from Friday evening through Sunday afternoon/evening and everyone is welcome for whatever part you can make it to.
There is a swimming area nearby with a floating dock, we have a canoe and some kayaks. The far side of the lake is a state forest with an abandoned summer camp in it. We have a hammock, badminton/volleyball net & big deck to hang out on. At night I can light up the fire bowl. We'll have the grill going & crepes and/or omelettes for breakfast.
There is crash space inside for 6-8 guests + floor space, and a yard big enough to pitch tents in (I can probably scare up 1-2 tents). Let me know if you'll have need of crash space.
For obvious reasons there is no public transit options there. Though if people want to come down for the whole weekend we might be able to pick you up from the commuter rail and give you a lift. Otherwise the Lebanon CT Amtrak stop is closest but would require advanced notice/planning.
Things to be aware of:
-You're going to need to bring at least some food and/or stop off at the supermarket nearby. We can't afford to feed everyone all weekend. :)
-My friends are not normal, there may be people there with non-standard gender orientations/gender presentations/relationship structures. You have to be able to be polite about that if you are attending.
-The water pressure *sucks* there, plan on the most basic of showers if you stay over. Related the water has a bit of a sulfur smell/taste, doesn't bother me but bothers some. We'll be bringing non-sulfurous drinking water as well.
