Pet shanty sounds pretty cool. Let me google and call them. thanks for the tip Furnfins!

ok, lets focus on Oct 18th and see who else can make it.

I can pickup and drive one person within Queens but would ideally want to either meet up or go with someone with a larger car so we can travel together. Happy to chip in for gas and tolls as well.

Lets make this happen. We should also factor in a break for lunch and chat

I don't think you could do Pet Shanty and Absolutely fish, Pet Shanty is south and the other is north. I think too much time to drive down there. But if you should go, check out Jimmy Buffs for lunch up the road a bit. It was on Diners Drivins and Dives and we liked it, good junk food type lunch Hopefully they're still there I'm planning on going to my gf's in a few weeks.

ok so we are waiting on sonicpath, vivadawolf and sunyang as the other people who said they could possibly make it.

otherwise it will be Kubal, eeng, acityd, & meowkat. I think the other three are all in brooklyn so it may work out nicely.

Though it sounds like you're closer to Stop&Shop with the Petland, right?
I am actually by the BJ's with the Petland. But either way its close enough, I can pick you up wherever ...

I think if we arrange an early start, we can wrap up shortly after lunch. The last time i ran the route with my daughter, it took about 3 hours including travel from manhattan and return back to queens.

Somethings i have in mind to pickup is some aquasoil, dwarf cory or microfishes, tiger shrimp, small stones and manzanita.

Will plot out the path on google maps today. For those that cannot make it, you are welcome to try out the tour separately as the route will be available to all.
