    I gathered the dates are 18-20th of Feb, and we're planning to do a hike in for this one rather than car camping. Are we definitely meeting at the Quehanna trail? I tried to read the rest of the thread but I couldn't tell if that was the final decision or not.

    I am scouting the trail saturday for campsites the plan is to car camp night 1 then go 6 miles camp nite 2 and 6 miles out on sunday the 20th this will be a level loop for safe easier winter travel. Day 1 will include a group meal . I know what trails we are doing just picking the best campsites and this is the marion brooks natural area it is surrounded by the Quehanna trail hope that explains it better

    Hope you can make it, Jay! How many stoves are you bringing this time......? It's 6+ hours drive for me; so, I plan to drive up on Thursday (02/17) and get a room at the Benezette Hotel - about $30 - if you want to share? I kinda know the area and it's a very short ride Friday over to the P-Lot.

    Get this! I have been to every store in Northern VA and no one has a sled! I've even hit 3 thrift shops - nothing! Need to find/make a pulk and soon!
    Happy Trails,
    J.D.

    I never drink water. I'm afraid it will become habit-forming.

    Just one stove this time, gotta pack it in on foot, remember? Well I guess I could bring a pulk for extra stoves if Knotty's coming

    Thanks for the offer J.D. but I will probably just drive up that day if I do go. Still on the fence a little but I would definitely like to see some of you all again and meet some new faces.

    -Jay

    WHEW!!! Glad you are OK! Sounds way too exciting! And, trucks bearing down on you!

    Jim, if you don't get your wheels back in time for the hike *AND* you still want to do it, I have a house in Saxonburg just south of Butler. I can stay there Thursday night and pick you up in Kittanning on Friday...? No problem for me.
    Happy Trails,
    J.D.
