Plastic cutlery, bamboo skewers, a handful of plastic cups, bendy straws and lots of disposable plates of varying sizes.

Liz has:

Nothing. But happy to pick stuff up, especially things that will not later take up too much space in tiny one bedroom apartment.

Chad has:

2 Boogie Boards, one better for shorter folks (5'6" or less, I bought it when I was a kid)

2 "Beachy" chairs (by beachy I meant beach worthy, not a pun...but the ass kicking was coming anyway)

Travel Plans

Beaker, leaving Thursday 8/20 morning from Montclair, NJ (arriving late afternoon), room for 1-3 passengers based on cargo (Prius), amenable to Chad's place as a Wednesday night leg, leaving Sunday 8/23. Maybe we can try the Cape May ferry to save some time.

Liz, leaving Thursday 8/20 morning from Washington DC. Hooking, um, meeting up with Chad to carpool to Assateague.

Chad, leaving Thursday 8/20 to hook up with Liz. I am about a 2 hour 45 minute ride from Ocean City. If anyone wants to stay at my place and head out from here on Thursday let me know. I am taking off the entire week from work to decompress.

Rich H, working my way down the coast all week. Cape Cod Monday - Tuesday. After that, I dunno, but I'll figure it out. I'll coordinate with fellow CT resident Eva. Does Amtrak go to the campsite? How about BoltBus?

Eva - perhaps we can drive to Beakers wednesday night after I collect my thoughts and think about what is needed - or Rich we can take Amtrak to baltimore or DC but i think thats as close as it gets us.


Ocean City boardwalk

Seafood Feast (maybe not Hooper's per warning from Scersk)


Not losing keys in ocean

Chasing ponies from tent

Bicycling? I may bring mine (Liz) I have a folding bike I'll probably bring if driving, and possibly another on a bike rack (Rich H)

Kicking Chad's ass for making that "beachy" pun up there.
