Enables communication and interaction among members present in New York's Mid-Hudson Valley and adjacent areas. The group's extent is a 50 mile radius from Rosendale NY, which includes the area south of Albany, east of East Branch, north of Suffern, and west of Torrington CT. http://bucksvsbytes.com/csmap shows the 100-mile diameter of the intended area but anyone can join, of course.
Outdoor activities take advantage of the Catskill Forest Preserve (speed bumps by global standards but great recreational mountains), the Hudson River valley (celebrating the 400th anniversary of Henry Hudson's visit and the coining of the Iroquois Indian phrase, "There goes the neighborhood!"), and the Shawangunks (world famous rock climbing and other recreation). We're an easy two hours from New York City, one hour from Albany, by car or bus, so come visit. We also have a giant ancient meteor crater but you only see indirect evidence of the 11 million megaton impact, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Panther_Mountain_%28New_York%29
