    Yes! It's that time of year again! We will go to the beach, see the ocean and sunbathe on the sand!
    Crash Space can be arranged, with enough people pitching in it could also be very inexpensive! This way we can all relax, and furs that are traveling from far away can crash and hang out for an extra day with the furs of NJ! Lots of places to go to and things to do before or after the beach, from catching a movie, going to arcades and dining out. For furs traveling from other states by plane, train or bus, if you can get to or arrive via train along the NE:Corridor line in Edison, I can pick you up, just let me know ahead of time.

    Some info about Gunnison: Gunnison Beach is one of several beaches that are part of the Gateway National Recreation Area in northern New Jersey, located on Sandy Hook, a six-mile-long peninsula across from the entrance to New York Harbor. Sandy Hook is known for exceptional beaches, wildlife, and fishing. Gunnison Beach, overlooked by the historic Sandy Hook Lighthouse, has dramatic views of lower Manhattan and the Verrazano Narrows Bridge. Nearly two miles of Gunnison Beach is legally recognized as clothing-optional, with official signs and full lifeguard and police protection; it is the largest clothing-optional beach on the Atlantic coast of the US, and draws more than 5,000 visitors per day on most sunny summer weekends.

    Time: 2:00pm - till we are done (beach duration, 6pm most likely). You can arrive as early as you'd like, but I will not be there until 2pm. (better parking after 2, and free parking after 4:30)

    Where: Gunnison Beach (Area G) and North Beach (follow the signs) at Sandy Hook Park in Sandy Hook/Atlantic Highlands, NJ NJ Garden State Parkway Exit 117, to route 36 South (12miles), to the beach! (Once you past the Beach Entrance, Gunnison is a good 4miles down the road! North is 5!)

    Gunnison: Clothing Optional: Clothing is optional. This is a family beach (kids are around), and while they do serve alcohol, no inappropriate behavior is allowed.

    Meet Spot: Better meet spot directions, demanded! Here you go! When you arrive on the beach, look for the flags! You'll see a Bright Orange one with a black paw on it! (Thank you Lupine Fox, Soma Cat and Shortwave P. Husky!), Thats us! pics can be found in the pictures link up at the top! :) It's really hard to miss! :) I do have my cell phone on me that I try to check every 30minutes. Call me if you still can't find us.

    Necessities: Sandals!! Along the beginning of the beach there may be a lot of shells, once you walk out there it is a nicely combed beach, but before that, the shells can be murder.. bring your sandals! Don't yell at me saying I didn't warn you!! Suntan/Sunblock lotion should also be used :) Sketchbooks...

    Parking: $15 every day. But this is avoidable, by carpooling or waiting till parking is free! When carpooling everyone should pitch in a few dollars. Parking is free before 7am (morning early birds need a parking pass from the ranger station which is the entrance.. so you'll get one.. just have to be sure they give you one...) and after 4:30pm.. So if you want to wait till 4:30pm to come to the beach, no worries, come on after 4:30pm.

    Contact info: 7325087297 = cell... If you call, be sure to call at least a day before the meet as phone signal is low on the beach. You can also send me a text message

    Accommodations Location: Directions will be provided at the meet.

    LifeGaurds: LifeGaurds are on duty from 8am till 6pm.
