    Just dropped by the camp, took the dogs for a walk. (Yeah, I'm that close)
    Ran into Blackfoot and Tinkr, scoped the group camp ground.
    A balmy 27 degrees with a nice breeze.
    Plenty of trees and a lone latrine. Lol

    For those coming from the North.
    NJTPK to Exit 7
    South on Rt 206
    You will pass the Vincentown Diner at 206&38 (530)' nice big Wawa on your left w/ gas
    On South past Vincentown to the Red Lion Circle 206&70 (Red Lion Diner, good food)
    3/4 of the way around the circle staying on 206 South
    Past the State Trooper Barracks and another 1/2mi to left on Carranza Road (just b4 Speed Shop)
    Straight on Carranza just over 8 miles
    You will pass by Seneca HS, on thru downtown Tabernacle, home of Nixons General Store for good eats...
    Slow down at Schulties farm to 25mph, on into the woods, past "Costello Prep"
    Look for the Carranza Memorial on Right, make a left at tree with Blue Blaze

    A glimpse of what awaits you...




    A little Batona Trail Magic, on the sunlit part of the tree, one of the better blazes and still easy to miss

    There were two latrines last time I checked. Did somebody steal one of the crappers?

    Don't worry - I'll make sure to save you a spot next to one ... just so you can keep an eye on it.

    water

    i'm wondering about water. i know there is a water pump at the camp - do you think it will be working? i'm guessing it will be fffffrozen... i remember there is a stream at the camp. can anyone chime in from the hang two years ago when the temps were low?

    There was no issue with the pump freezing in either of the last two years - at least not that I recall.

    its never froze that i know of. wouldn't use the stream water. its mostly bog run off. i'm bringing a case of bottled water, mostly because i'm lazy
    It's not procrastinating, its proactively delaying the implementation of the energy-intensive phase of the project until the enthusiasm factor is at its maximum effectiveness.
