Just out of curiosity, are the people who cook the meal, cleaning that mean as well?  Are the cooks responsible for providing beverages, plates and silverware or will it be a bring your own utensils and drink?

 Everyone will provide their own beverages, plates/silverware, etc. This has seemed to work out easiest this way. I also won't have to drink Diet Coke.                    :P

Please include other items for your meal. If someone is making pancakes, french toast, etc... include syrup.
 

I will bring the 40 cup coffee pot for the mornings, first one up starts it.

Breakfast: Bad Seed (Rusty) and Matt O
Lunch: Guitarman (Steve) and Marc S
Dinner: Joe, Phil and Allamuchy Joe

I haven't been to French Creek since January.  They were working on a bridge and there was a detour the way I normally come in....100 to 401 to 345.  Has that bridge been fixed?  I know there is another way in but I am just not familiar with that way (coming from Downingtown)

I'm not sure if the bridge is finished but if you go to Google Maps and put in Downingtown, PA and French Creek State Park, it will give you three options to get there.  All take 40 minutes

Rt 282
Rt 322 - Rt 82
or 282 to Little Conestoga

I will be leave after work, probably getting there around 6pm at the latest.  I think a few guys have firewood and we will use it all, the low at night will be around 43 degrees.

I have some *thick* stuff that has been aging. We can't start the fire with it, but they are big for keeping it going. We also have a few pieces left over from the Knoebels trip.

Should get there around 7:30 or so.

I'll throw some wood in the truck, the completely dry stuff will go up quickly it's old and ready to go.  I have a little bit that's slightly damp but should work ok.  I'm going to try to be ready to hit the road around 5:00 should pull in around 6ish.

Great time this weekend with the guys.  Rained Saturday night around 10pm, didn't stop the drinks and stories under a canopy.  Park Ranger was awesome.

The campfire was a little crazy, (mental note) don't expect a half dozen guys to have everything under control at the fire when you are sleeping in a chair.

Posting pictures very soon.

I finally got around to editing the video.  I wish I had the camera rolling when the kid faced the turkey with the light saber. :lmao:
