    Spring Mahha 2013 Location - April 26,27 & 28th 2013

    I need some feedback about reserving the groupsites at Pine Grove Furnace SP for the 2013 Spring Mahha. Reservations need to be made in plenty of time to assure us getting the group sites.

    For those who have not been to PGFSP for the Mahha, check out past trip reports. The responses have always been positive.

    Some advantages to PGFSP are:
    Parking is close to the group sites
    Plenty of trees for hammocking (last year 3 sites held 75 hangers and could hold more)
    Family campground is close to the group sites
    Pavilion can be reserved for our Sat Breakafast and dinner get together
    Large campfire location within the group site..we resreved three sites last year
    Hiking..AT runs through the park...several blue blazes
    Biking paths, two lakes, AT Museum

    I'm not opposed to looking at other sites but some legwork would need to be done to find suitable locations. If anyone has a suggestion or recommendations for an alternate site, please check it out and post a report with the advantages/disadvantages.

    I would like to make the reservation in July so I can wait/forget about further planning until after the New Year.

    Thanks for any feedback. The Spring Mahha is one of the favorite hangs and let's make 2013 no exception!!

    Just pick my off week so I can attend!

    and I'll drive to where ever it is.
    I think near the AT Museum would be a bonus.

    just one curious question this year I didn't remember camp fires - was it too dry or banned?
    There was an Old Man with a owl,
    Who continued to bother and howl;
    He sat on a rail, And imbibed bitter ale,
    Which refreshed that Old Man and his owl
    .WOO

    No one brought fire wood. There was a fire ban at the time, but we were allowed to burn in the fire pits. There were some small camp fires. ZQ

    I haven't made a MAHHA hang at PGF, but I've heard lots
    of positives and no negatives of concequence, so I
    vote "go for it". I hope to make it this Spring.

    A return to PGF would be fantastic.
    Add to the criteria above the easy accessible central Mid-Atlantic location.
    IF any future sites are considered, these advantages should be used as a criteria list (AT museum notwithstanding). .

    I grew up in PA. and my family used to camp near Laurel lake which I think is one of the lakes you mentioned. I will try to attend if I can work it out. I wanted to go this year, but couldn't manage it.
    Happy Hangin!!!

    ZQ here...I called yesterday, and, like we guessed...they said that the group sites at PGFST reserve quickly. Tim said to go ahead and reserve/pay for group sites A,B,& C...the same for the Pavilion for the whole day on Saturday. So...everything we would need reserved, is.

    Dates...April 26,27 & 28th 2013

    Thanks ZQ and 2Q your efforts are always appreciated. Looking forward to hanging with you all again.
    Sometimes I like to hike and think, And sometimes I just like to hike.

    Hiking is'ent about waiting for the storm to pass its about learning to hike in the rain.
