We'd love to go but right now it's hard for us to commit to any particular time.

We'll be taking a 10+ day trip to San Antonio this summer.  At the moment, we're sure we're going but not sure when.

This sounds like another wonderful rally, but the Klass family will not be able to attend. :'( We've got to save our vacation time and $ for Frontiertown,Ocean City MD in August. 8) I'll miss seeing my  Pittsburgh buddies, and of course everyone else going.

This is a worthy consideration. We will do it if our July 4th plans fall through. Right now we are looking for a rental for OCMD as we just got notice our previous rental went to an annual rental.  :'( Anyone know of a decent place, doesn't need to be boardwalk. We were in West OC.

We just booked site #19 - according to the reservation site, it was the last available site in that loop.

Looks like the Ash Loop is full now.  There other sites available but I'm not sure about electric or pets?

Great picture from Rocky Gap SP:

Joe and I stayed in this area a few years ago and discovered the Western Maryland Scenic Railroad, which has trains departing from Cumberland, MD. It is about 20 minutes west of the campground. 

One of the cool things about this trip is that you can take the ride up to the turnaround point (Frostburg, MD) and ride your bike back down through the Great Allegheny Passage to Cumberland.

I contacted the place and was told that we could get a discount if we have more than 25 people going. The standard rates are:
Adult: $30 / child (12 and under): $16,  add $5 per person for you bike.

We haven't decided for sure if we are going to do this, but could definitely be convinced if others in the group were interested...

Another neat family activing in western Maryland is the C&O Canal Bicycling path, this takes the route of the old canal and goes from Washington, DC to Cumberland, MD. There really aren't any big hills, and the surface is hardpacked dirt. It has been rated as one of the most scenic trails in the country.

One of the interesting sites is the 3100 foot long tunnel through the town of Paw Paw Tunnel in WV - definately recommend bringing a flashlight, it gets pretty dark in there when riding a bike. In addition to this pretty cool place, there are also numerous old canal locks in various states of repair along the trail. All-in-all a very interesting place to ride the bikes without worrying about traffic.
