SILVER SANDS=CHARLES ISLAND=MILFORD

Posted on Jan 17 2021 - 1:39pm

Talking along the hike in Poughkeepsie we have decided our next hike will be at  Silver Sands State Park Milford. We will need to make some painted rocks with messages to leave at the Boardwalk of the Kindness Rock Garden. It is a little depleted. At low tide we will hike out to Charles Island. There are remains of a monastery on the Island. Friends of mine still find silverware and remnants from the monastery. Pirate Billy Kid buried treasure on the Island. If there are no geocaching sites on Island we can leave one. A good friend of mine Mike Dooling made a documentary of the Island I will send it out to everyone. I have been trying to get permission for our Troop to Camp on the Island but have not heard back yet from the Town. January 18th is Martin Luther King Day. Maybe that day will work or we will get a weekend to do it. People camp and cook on the beach so I will check with Ranger about cooking on Island or Beach.

5 MILE HIKE SATURDAY JANUARY 2ND

Posted on Jan 8 2021 - 4:33pm

What a great day for a hike. All our five senses were put to work. The weathermen came through for us. The second we entered the walkway a spectacular rainbow appeared and stayed in the sky till we finished the 1.5 mile walkway. Sam Falotico did a great job leading the hike over two bridges,several State Parks,Train yards,historic sites and of course Little Italy.There were plenty of Geocaching sites along the trail. We capped the day off with a nice meal at the famous Eveready Diner. They put our large group into the enormous Banquet Hall. The Troop paid for the Scouts meals. Just a reminder that's where the fundraising money goes. Thanks to Drivers Mrs. Grendzinski, Ms.Concepcion, Mr. Johnstone, and Mr. Rosario.
