Wish we could come. Russ and I had a friend die and we will be at a memorial service on Saturday. Enjoy and think of us.

Easier than you think, just googled it. Take 95 south to 78 west. Follow 78 west until the Pine Grove exit. (Which is somewhere between exit 13 and 20, I never remember exactly). Off the exit turn right. You'll just follow the road, first farmland, then it turns very wooded and very uphill. Near the top you'll see a parking lot on your right. At the end you come to first there is an AT sign. Park at the other end. There a blue blazed trail that takes you to the shelter. At the shelter turn left and we camp about a hundred feet up the AT.

Two things on your way. I think it's exit 40 there is a smoked meat place, well worth stopping. Exit 29 is Cabela's if you need a last minute item.

Is this more car camping than a hike? How far from parking lot to shelter?

500 - 600 yards. Not far at all, just enough to be a slight PITA.

I hike in my pack first then go back for the cooler o'meat. Yes if Dutch is there it's best to bring extra meat. Or wine. Or both.

If its ok I could make this. Especially since cars are close and I haven't done winter a ping in a looooong time. Hopefully Dutch will. Ring some goodies so I can outfit my new rig.

I'll be up in that neck of the woods that day, But sadly so will the wife and kids. And the wife will want to stay someplace that has a roof,electric, fireplace and a real bed. I wish I could get away.

Have fun.
