I booked us in site 241 a while ago but forgot to post it.  It will be our usual trio 🙂
My goal in life is to be the person my dog thinks I am.

On Saturday there is a Chicken BBQ at the RedLandSeniorCenter.  Which is maybe 15 min from the park.  BBQ ready at 11am.  $8 for a half chicken, baked potato, coleslaw, apple sauce, roll and butter.    Address for pick up .  736 Wyndamere Rd, Lewisberry PA 17339.  (Pay with cash only).   (Found near I83 on PA 177.  ---it's in a church many of you will pass when coming off I83)

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?

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/

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).

We have never been to this Campground so I was looking up photos and came across this neat YouTube video of all the campsites

I just extended my trip another day, so I'll be doing Thursday to Monday.  BF has to work so he'll be doing Friday to Sunday or Monday.

Is anyone else doing longer than the weekend?

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 picked up Saint Paula's site. Sorry we'll miss you, hope your mom is doing better.

10 days away!!!  I just printed out that tubing info to read up on and show Lori.  I think it would be fun and enjoyable.
