Event Description

ADDED NOTE: There will be a Morristown train station pickup at 8:30 a.m. to get you to the start if you are coming by train. We'll get you back later too.

Somehow this event evolved quickly in the last few days. Its like a surprise FreeWalker raid on an unsuspecting town as might have happened in Revolutionary times.

As many of you know I live in the Morristown NJ area and seems like we're going to do a short (10 to 13 mile) walk through some historic park trails (e.g., Patriot's Path), streets, passed an old village, and through "Motown" - as we modern natives of the area call it. Its a little bit of everything.

This will be a loop walk with lunch in Morristown and a detour to my house on the way back. 

The very informal walk will start at 9:00 a.m. sharp at the Morristown National Historical Park Visitor's Center parking lot. (directions

Here's the planned route for the walk.

As always, everyone is invited! And, its free!

Hope to see you there...

I'm looking forward to joining in on the "Morristown Raid." however my family down to one car I will be coming in by mass transit. Would someone would be willing to pick me up in Morristown?  NJTransit gets me there at 8:28am.
