    Have the whole campground to myself. Got all setup before sundown and can enjoy my campfire.

    What a Great spot, I’m jealous. I checked out a couple campgrounds near me and all showed full. Although I didn’t attempt to look until Yesterday and they are operating on limited site basis due to off season and limited personal. Deserves me right, besides I couldn’t take Friday off so I would have pulled in after 7 which wouldn’t be fun to back in without a spotter. Have an awesome time.

    NOPE you can keep it. Snow in December is one thing, snow in November is a big fat NOPE for me. ;)[sf]

    Looks awesome. Watch out for bears, you are their only attraction. Looks like it would of been nice to bring a leaf blower.

    @J Starsky I did one of those a few years back and was asked not to repeat. I guess the photos turned a lot of people off. [LOL]

    You’ll hate me more when I tell you I’m here again this weekend. [:D]

    Slept for over 12 hours last night. Didn’t want to get out from underneath the sleeping bag since the temps were about 29 degrees. Went to bed about 10pm and turned off the heater. Woke up at about 3am and turned it on for about 30 minutes to take the edge off, then back to sleep with it off until 11am. Have a +20 sleeping bag which I have open like a quilt. Have my CPAP on and a wool cap on over that. Completely under the sleeping bag so the CPAP acts like a snorkel. [LOL]

    Nice and warm under the covers. Oh, and only one other campsite occupied as of last night.

    Got one more trip to the same campground next weekend and I'll have my Thanksgiving dinner in the woods. The Campground closes for the season after that so that will be it for my camping this year, unless I decide to do Christmas weekend at French Creek SP. Depends on the forecast.

    Well, last trip of 2021 is in the books. Was cold, it snowed, and no one else was in the campground. In short, it was great. [:D]
