I'm going to talk with Lori to confirm our dates before we book (Maybe make it a long weekend  ;)  There are only 2 sites booked in the pet loop as of 11/7/16.  They have full hook ups so that's what I'm going to aim for when I book.

Post by: thingette1 on November 18, 2016, 10:54:31 AM
The row of full hookups from 241-247 are all reserved. The full hookups that are left are mostly sunny sites directly across from bathhouse (who thought that through?), they are sites 266-268. They are landscaped nicely with paver/block walls. The line of electric only from 227-235 are open. Most of these sites are quite deep. Also, the two electric sites beside the campground host are open too, sites 191-192. And all of the sites mentioned by number ARE pet friendly.

This park is very strict on where pets are allowed. You may only walk your pet in the pet friendly B Loop. You may not walk it anywhere else.

If pet friendly and close to the group are not important, there are lots of other sites available. If you are looking for water access, those sites (at least most) are non electric.

Looks like we're going to have a nice group in July.  Any thoughts on a summertime food theme we can dream about on this cold windy morning? 

Summertime food I always think of the Low Country Boil.  We could do Burgers and Dogs.  Or maybe seafood.....crab is a summertime food right?

There are still a few electric sites available and this is a great location for canoeing, kayaking, swimming, etc and they have boat rentals.

Boat Rental: The boating concession, located in the Quaker Race Day Use Area, offers rentals by the hour, day, overnight, or for the week. Types of boats include canoes, one and two-person kayaks, paddleboats, and row boats. Electric motors are available for rent. Weather permitting, the concession is open daily from Memorial Day to Labor Day and weekends beginning mid-May and after Labor Day to mid-October.

If the weather and water level play nice, would anyone like to tube (maybe kayak too) on the Yellow Breaches Creek? You need to bring your own tubes. We would need to park some vehicles at the pick up point and some at the drop off point (Messiah College) and shuttle the rest. Would be a fun and free (except cost of tubes, unless you can borrow one/some).

Kayaking on the river sounds interesting.  How far and for how long? 
Title: Re: Gifford Pinchot SP - July 28-30 2017
Post by: thingette1 on June 30, 2017, 11:50:13 AM
1.5 miles, 3.0 miles, and farther. See the facebook page for more details from people that float and kayak it all the time. https://www.facebook.com/FloatYellowBreeches/ (https://www.facebook.com/FloatYellowBreeches/)

I'm thinking 1.5 to start for me. I've never floated this area before. But I know lots of people that do. Important to carry out all trash, don't drive after drinking (PD and DCNR police the lots at the ends), and don't drink while on Messiah College property (or be obnoxious/disrespectful while on their property, which is start point parking lot).

I received the unfortunate news last night that my mom is in the hospital with heart and diabetes complications.  I am very limited to getting time off at work to go back to Pittsburgh to see her. Unfortunately, the only long weekend that I have is the end of July, camping trip weekend.  I have made a decision to cancel our camping reservation and go back to Pittsburgh to see her instead.  We will miss all of you and looking forward to seeing you in October at Spring Gulch.

I don't think we will have the prep and cook time available since we are tubing on Saturday. I think we are doing meatballs so I can use the crock pot and not have to worry about timing so much.

Sorry, guys, we can't commit to any activities yet. Trailer goes in the shop Monday & hoping to get it back by the wknd. I know it's bad timing, but we have a 6 day trip to Ives Run coming up the following Thursday. The condenser isn't working on AC. Chris & I can live without it, but the dogs can not. If I want to leave the furkids in the trailer while we are biking or kayaking, it has to be cool so they don't die of heatstroke.

I have a table and for the pot luck I think I will bring soft serve ice cream.  I have had an ice cream maker that I got for Christmas....I think it is about time I figure out how it works and if I commit to it here it will force me to read the instructions and buy the ingredients.  I'll bring cones, chocolate syrup, and either sprinkles or jimmies.

Post by: thingette1 on July 24, 2017, 12:34:58 PM
Certainly! WalMart may be closer (and cheaper, it's $12 for a bucket with two kinds of chicken and a side). Walmart only has rotisserie chicken (it's a small walmart). The grocery store right near it or KFC (in front of grocery) will have it. On Rt 83 at Yocumtown Exit. 10-15 minutes from camp ground.

I can put 3 kayaks on my roof and 2 in the bed  for 5 easily.  I will have only 2 kayaks for Nathan and I and Lori's inflatable which we can blow up at the launch.  Maybe we can bring it to 7 if we stack 2 more in the bed. 

I'd say we need water to drink and other basic beach stuff, sunglasses, hat, sun tan lotion, etc. 
Title: Re: Gifford Pinchot SP - July 28-30 2017
Post by: thingette 1s sister on July 24, 2017, 04:12:41 PM
For tubing, a tube or kayak, or raft. It is a little rocky so pool inflatables may not make it all the way. But then again, sometimes they do.  A hat, sunscreen, water shoes or old sneakers. NO barefeet or flip flops please.  You could fish as you go, it is stocked trout stream, but doubtful on catching with a group in the water.

We will bring some flank steak and maybe some fruits or veggies. 

So when exactly is the tubing?  Also, is the waterway going to be low and rocky?  Trying to determine if we will be joining.
Title: Re: Gifford Pinchot SP - July 28-30 2017
Post by: chiefbowes on July 25, 2017, 07:59:13 AM
it is definitely not going to be low. We are going to check it Thursday for level to make sure its not to high and fast. tubing is as simple as sitting the tube and floating down stream. with maybe some extra curricular water splashing.

Well, I just got the call from the dealer. A new AC unit is on order, but won't arrive until the end of the wk. So, I will be releasing my site tonight. If anyone is interested in a FHU pet site, pass the word.
 
Sorry to miss this trip, as we haven't been to Pinchot in years, but right now it's more important to get the trailer fixed with our 6 day vacation coming up at the end of next wk. We plan on biking & kayaking, but can't leave the dogs in a hot trailer while we do that.

My friend and I bought tubes a few years ago.  It turned out the nearby river was a terrible idea, and our butts kept hitting rocks and we had to walk through a few places.  BUT we were both happy with these rafts.  It has a plastic mesh bottom, so you're still cooled by the water but we felt like it protected our bottoms when we went over rocks. 
If you get this raft make sure you put your name on it.  I call dibs on all unmarked ones :-P

Tristan and I will be floating down the river on tubes, but may also bring a kayak or two for the lake.

Thanks. Lisa & Bill Thomas   :chef:

I was reading the instructions on my ice cream maker....it only makes 1 quart and the container must be frozen before I start to make it.....If the container fits in my camper freezer I will be able to make enough for 2 spoonfulls each  :-\ My sister has another ice cream maker that makes a larger quantity that I will look into.  Otherwise I may have to change my pot luck contribution from ice cream to something else. 

Nathan has discovered the game clue so I can assure you we will have the game at our site and he will be willing to play with anyone at anytime if anyone would like to join.  I think professor Plumb did it in the observatory with the rope  ;D

It was an enjoyable weekend and Saturday turned out beautiful.  Thank you Barb and Gary for loaning me a 20# propane tank when I ran out on Friday and couldn't cook and thank you Winter for going for a ride on Saturday and showing me where I could fill up my propane tanks.

Another fun rally!! Tubing the Yellow Breeches, fighting off hungry, DEET-resistant mosquitos (and losing miserably), playing in the lake, and of course the wonderful food at potluck. Thanks to everyone that attended!
