Traffic on Rt. 209 might be heavier though depending on what time you hit it.

Rte 80 to 209 N is the way to go.
The Marshalls Creek bypass is now open.
When you travel up 209 you will enter a new traffic circle. Make the first exit on right. ( MOST GPS UNITS WONT RECOGNIZE THIS ROAD AS IT IS BRAND NEW.)
Map quest does recognize the new road. also Seven Bridges is closed for bridge replacement. You will travel up the new 209 to Milford Rd S to 402 to Marshalls Creek Rd.

Steve - goes this cut out a lot of the traffic congestion where BUS 209 and 209 meet? That road was always backed up.

The new bypass should eliminate the congestion at the 2 traffic lights where 209 and seven bridges road meet. Also the flea market is shut down. ( moved more north to the old outlets )This was the cause of most of the weekend traffic.

For those of you that haven't been to Otter Lake...

When you turn onto Marshall's Creek Road from US 209 I think there is a sign "Otter Lake - 7 miles" or something like that...or it is in the CG directions or in Woodalls, etc

It will be the LONGEST 6 or 7 miles that you've ever driven. I know it sounds silly, but trust me on this one. The road is narrow and very twisty.  You'll see what I mean on Friday  :)

So it you need something from the grocery, try and get it before heading up the road to the CG.

Shoving off at 3pm.  Forecast is for no rain Sat or Sun, so that is great! Man it sure rained Thurs overnight, hard and windy at times here in Harrisburg area.

Somebody left a chair at the campfire on Saturday night. I will bring it to the Thanksgiving rally. It was great seeing everybody, too bad I had to leave again for a gig. Dave sorry I missed you.

Thanks for sharing the photos. Abbey definitely was the featured star of CanvasCampers.  Had a great time despite my crazy schedule and some rain.  Thanks again to all that arranged another great rally.
