    It really was a pretty impressive memorial, and was surprisingly busy. I was very impressed and very moved. It should be a required visit for everyone in this country to see the sacrifice those people made for our greater good. Had that plane made its target it's really hard to say what this country could look like today

    So we made it to French Creek this evening, and all I can say is there must be a better way to get to this park from the pike. That said, so far seems like a very nice park although I guess there never is a shortage of inconsiderate neighbors as they guy next door seems to have no issue with his dog hanging out on our site

    Your site was vacated about an hour ago, and the campers uphill are packing up as I type.

    Had a great trip to the Philly, Lancaster, Gettysburgh, Hershey areas. The truck spent 2 days at a local dealer with DEF issues. Headed back to Laurel Hill for the night to visit with the Old geezer and his family and my daughter coming to visit from WV.

    Speaking as one who had two close friends on Fl. 93, I can tell you for sure that a lot of private money was raised towards completion of the Shanksville Memorial.

    JT, doesn't matter to me honestly how it was raised, that was a Bob issue. I personally was very impressed and moved by it. I thought it was very well done and think everyone should experience it.

    Hey John, yeah we are back at Laurel Hill tonight with John and Lisa, John said you were doing a Dutch oven event today. I was supposed to try to get together with Mike (Shemily) while out at French Creek but was having a lot of issues getting on the Portal out there. We are likely heading out early in the morning but now that I know what this place and Kooser are like and how close they are to Sam in Morgantown I suspect we will be coming back more often, it would be a great place to meet up with her at for the weekends on occasion and could certainly meet up with you and John and Lisa and anyone else that wanted to as well.

    Let's try to get together over here next spring/summer.

    I am not much of an execution person but I am an idea guy. If someone wanted to put together a get together at Laurel Hill we would likely be interested next year

    Thanks for the Grand Design tour. Oh the humanity. Look at all the storage, and the shower, and the storage, and the room, and the storage, and the 12 cu ft double door fridge, and the storage, and the room, and the island, and the storage, and the sink, and the recliners,and the storage....it will fit around the tight turn in our rear alley and go right in our back yard physics/laws of nature non withstanding. I have been hearing that continuously since Saturday evening following the Grand tour. What was also said by someone was "just as long as you realize with this comes that" while pointing to a 3500 SRW Duramax lol. I think everything in our Rockwood and truck might fit in about 1/2 of your basement. Shes now also an authority on towing capacities.....my 2500 would pull it ok lol.

    In the words of the king, "Thank you, thank you very much"!.....

    I assume she thinks we have about 130K laying around Muhahahahahaha.

    5-24 thru 6-3-18 already in books.
    7-12 thru 7-22-18 and 10-10 thru 10-21-18 will be going on books soon. Get reserving, I'll bring tools and have no reservations at all about whacking holes for additional windows and other things in your rig. I'm bored with my Rockwood and have run out of wall space for cutting holes.

    August falls on the calender sort of screwy in 2018 as far as what weekends are 3rd etc. The Laurel Hill Bluegrass Festival is scheduled for the 3rd weekend on 8-18/19-2018. That usually fills (reservations) at least all the hookup and electric sites early and if you wait until Jan/Feb they are usually gone.
