    I agree, as I said if it is over by our date we will still use Dingmans. I'd hate to change and pay for a spot and then the shutdown be over.

    Easier said than done. Any dogs coming, to keep the bears away? It might help convince her.

    What bears? Maybe some Jersey Bears will keep those PA bears at bay.

Suggestions for secondary spots are welcome that we can look at, but again if Dingmans is open we plan on meeting there, sorry for the unfortunate news.

    Just a thought of alternative, but only if we need one. Stokes is pretty nice, inexpensive, and lots and and lots of trees. At stokes, I believe Lake Ocquittunk is the best choice because they have the bathrooms with hot water and showers, yet it's still in the woods. I'm sure we will be back on track at Digman's before the trip date, but this is a good "just in case" If this becomes more entertained, I have some site selection thoughts

    Thinking about bringing 2.

    One is a living, breathing alarm system, a rat terrier.
    The other a Shiba Inu, tough little dogs.

    They've barked at bear in Maine and Canada. For some reason, they didn't care about moose.

    I saw on the signup sheet that we are about 22 confirmed and 2 possible. I know we are still about two weeks out, but I'm wondering if this list will be an accurate way to know how many we will be when we get closer to the date? I ask because I want to know how much Pizza I will need to make for sat night's dinner.
    Also, this is my first group hang as well as PIF bucket. Is there a guideline as far as desirable gear? I had some extra, but in perfect shape, cast iron cookware I was considering bringing, but I don't know if there is a lightweight, back-packable-gear-only guideline, or if gear should only be hammock related?
    Thanks all, I'm really looking forward to this
