Thumbs up Dateline Nittany Mtn. 30june2012

Most of the eggs arrived yesterday afternoon. Casitas long and short, Scamps including a 5er, a new Snoozy, an old Burro, an A-frame pop up. For a short time yesterday afternoon there were two new Parkliner 15s. Due to death in his family, the proud new owner has gone home. The remaining Parkliner is the company demo driven here from N. Carolina by Chandler of Parkliner.

Near record heat for this date has abated today with increasing overcast and a good chance of rain. Potluck supper and trailer visitations upcoming in a couple of hours. Sort of like old George Carlin joke: "A rain dance will be held, weather permitting." That's the news from Nittany PA. To absent friends, Wish You Were Here!

Well Karen and I just said goodbye to Bill and Laurie as they drove by our site in their lil'snoozey so we are alone and will leave tomorow foe a week or so at our daughters about 12 miles from here. Then it will be on to Camden Hills State Park in Maine for another rally. I guess we'll break a record for number of rallies and get togethers this year, we normally just travel to nowhere in particular and everyplace in general. Sue did a fine job as rally host, Bill and Karen, "enjoying our journey" enjoy yours

Wish I could have made it to the rally. Sounds like everyone had a good time. When someone gets the time can they posy some photos?

Home and dry in northern DE. Very good potluck dinner and NO rain Sat. Two really nice Scamp 5ers; the west coast brethren (Steve and Terri) have the smallest "minispare" on theirs that I've ever seen! Laird has done some impressive work modifying the "loft" bed in his from transverse to fore 'n aft. The 5ers give me a case of 2footitus which I can't indulge, but I can admire from afar and, in the present case, close up. Good food; good fellowship!~

Aww thanks guys! It was a great time with an awesome group of eggers! I had great help for the pot luck and we had more than enough food. We had two Park Liners (So sorry Tim and Rita had to leave), three Casitas, a Little Snoozy, a Burro, a 13' Scamp, two 5th wheel Scamps, an Aliner, and a few fiberglass wannabees who joined the fun and the tour. I sincerely thank all of you for your help as I am not so good at this organizing stuff. I have photos that I hope to get on line by tomorrow. Thanks again all, and Jim, I happily hand the director chair back to you!

Looks like everyone had a great time, I'm glad the weather cooperated. How did this CG compare to Delaware Water Gap (last years location) in relation to comfort and cleanliness?
Now we have to plan our fall get together, I have a quaint cg in mind located here Burnt Cabins Grist Mill
I'm thinking early October or November, they are open year round, they are reasonable, they make unbelievable sandwiches with their own bread from their own grist mill, they also offer Passport America and Good Sam discounts, water/electric/cable/internet/dump facilities. Fall colors should be bright this year
I'm planning on picking up the new Escape in 2 weeks in Raleigh, NC, can't wait to try it out.

Big KOA, Jim. 160 seasonal sites; 160 transient. Recently refurbed restroom/showers. Most of the facility bldgs. and rental cabins also looked recently constructed/well-maintained. KOA is never a "Red Mars" experience for the pack in/pack out crew (which none of us are) but this one wasn't a wall to wall Gong Show either (perhaps over the 4th it will develop that aspect).

Burnt Cabins is another one on the "Harrisburg hub". Works for us as an easy weekender distance out and back from northern DE. Can't speak for those from NY, Conn.

Do you have any other suggested sites you have been to? I'm open for suggestions, the only reason I said Burnt Cabins was their delicious sandwiches, other than that it's very remote in the foothills but the Grist Mill does make a nice appearance. I wish there was something like Raystown Lake closer to NY state line, but I'm mostly familiar with the as you say "Harrisburg Hub" locations. Adirondacks are wonderful but I can only vouch for KOA Lake Placid.
I'm planning on taking several weekend trips at some new Passport America cg in Pennsylvania/New York in July and August, maybe one of them will turn out to be a nice place. As you say, KOA is more or less "boiler plate" camping.

It appears that the KsOA have a slight excess of sites which they're willing to discount in advance simply to fill the all the pews. I like the state parks but they're full on a cold April weekend. And any park, public or private, however unappetizing, is a good deal for daytrippers. Wife and I visited Maruska Farms near Danville PA., a husband and wife sheep-raising operation, on Saturday. They were attempting to do some trenching and perf pipe laying to get a spring-riddled hillside dried out. They'd had a hot Friday with a premium on getting full value out of a rented trencher so they were probably about ready for some "wool gathering."

Jim - Nittany Mt. was clean and well kept. Personally, I liked Delaware Water Gap better. The location was better for us, and I think the overall set up was better. We found Nittany Mt. to be a bit too spread out. We weren't really all together, and some of the sites were very small. We were next to Chandler and his son, who were wonderful neighbors, but the two sites were in a space that is usually one site in most campgrounds. Also, Gary and Jean had a site with no shade.

Depending on the date, we'd love to join you in the fall. As for NY, as I've mentioned before, the Watkins Glen KOA is my all time favorite. We've also camped in the Adirondack Camping Village in Lake George which is very nice. The KOA in Old Forge is another good one.
