    Barb - no problem with after dark arrival...we can line up with the lanterns and make a make-shift "runway" for you [:D]

    I would suggest to all attending that you stock-up on all needed supplies on the way to the campground. Once there, it is quite a haul back to find a Wal-Mart.

    There is two local grocery stores and a Sheetz within a few miles so ice and the basics should be available.

    Work will no longer be a problem for this rally. Hoping to be there and set up by dark or finishing up as it gets dark.

    This has always been a great weekend and a very memorable way to close the camping season.

    We attended last year's fall rally and had a great time! We just reserved site #4 for this year and will be arriving on Thursday night and leaving on Sunday.

    The Pop-up Gizmos just arrived that we ordered! Hope they work as good as everyone says they do.

    We had to cancel our reservation for the last two rallies we wanted to attend due to busy work schedules and traveling - so we are really looking forward to seeing everyone again.

    Terry, Susan and Sammie the puppy - aka "Gizmo" as everyone was calling her.... :) [PU] :)

    I love this rally. I can't swing Knoebels, so hopefully I can make this one.

    Thanks Barb for the heads-up on this one. I've been busy and missed it.

    We reserved site 58 for an after dark arrival. We'll be there Friday through Sunday.

    Thanks Steve! Maybe if we time it right, Fri evening the ranger could be at my site with his spotlight illuminating my parking pad for me [LOL]

    At Codorus in May, one came flying up behind us, all lights flashing on his car, in the loop as we arrived at our site. I thought, "Oh, no. What did we do now?" I was already out of the truck, Chris was ready to pull the trailer out of the way, when the ranger told us to sit still. Then he drove his car right up the embankment beside us & zipped off somewhere in the park. Since we had just arrived, I thought no one would have seen it, but, wrong! Apparently some dear friends were peeking through the trees & saw enough to give me a good ribbing again.

    Would love to go. Looking at 3 1/2 hours one way. Over many montains. In the winter. I am debating.
