    I don't think I will get my bug net finished in time for the trip. I live near enough in the swampy woodlands to know the mosquitos haven't hatched here. How are the black flies? Just wondering if I will get away without a bug net this weekend or should I bring my Hennessy?

    On Line there is a place called Monn's (717) 532-4245, and several others.
    If someone local could handle a transaction, I would also be interested in pitching in for firewood.

    Maybe there is someone local from HF that knows the area and could set up a deal.
    In my area a face cord, 16 inch by 4 ft by 8 ft stack sells for between 35 and 55.
    One face cord or less, per fire would probably do, if it only burned after dark.
    If 10 folks pitched in possibly about $20.00 each.

    Any local volunteers to set up delivery?

    Donna here...You guys have a good idea. Hopefully there is someone with a pickup truck...even out of state...that could stop for wood.

    However.....There really is a ton of downed wood that could be collected and cut up...the only down side is the time involved.

    I think that black flies are more an issue in New England, and later in the year (like late May, June), than eastern PA in late April, but someone correct me if I'm wrong about that.

    I can contribute $ for wood, if someone is picking up.

    I'd love some bamboo to construct my 3rd stand. How much for 6 pieces.

    Donna here....not really. In the parking lot of the group camping area I have been able to send texts...but I don't think there is enough coverage to call. In the family campground last year, I wasn't able to call, but I could text. I have been able to call from the top of the hill at the Appalachian Museum, but that is hit or miss. Down the hill at the bathrooms, I wasn't able to send a text the other week when we were there checking things out. I have Verizon.

    I can add AT&T to the sketchy coverage list. I have friends that have a cabin just up the hill and there are spots where you might be able to make a call, but you better turn off your phone at night if you want to have any battery left in the morning (for those who don't know, searching for a signal really kills the battery).
    Mountains should be climbed with as little effort as possible and without desire. ... To live only for some future goal is shallow. Itís the sides of the mountain that sustain life, not the top. Here's where things grow.
