2007 Eastern M&G Site Schedule

Hi Everyone from sunny humid central PA,

I went up to the office this evening and got a list of everyone whose coming and their site numbers. This way, you can go to the Buttonwood website and get an idea of where you'll be. The list is as follows:

- Sunline Fan.................Site 54
- Quetse........................Site 65
- Purplesuebug...............Site 66
- Nasa42a......................Site 80
- Poor Man Campin'........Site 81
- PTHutch.......................Site 84
- Makers Mark................Site 85
- 264SRinPA...................Site 86
- Tinybluetj....................Site 87
- Hiller 64......................Site 97
- Richard.......................Site 98 (Already here)
- Emam.........................Site 99

Don't get freaked out when you look up your site on the map and it looks small (Hutch in particular). The lady at the office said the map isn't to scale of the actual sites, so 84 is a lot bigger than it looks.

Pam, is Joseph Yake the friend of yours with the 1950, or is this someone else that I'm just not seeing?

Also, it is VERY sunny here, so come prepared. Our site seems quite unlevel too, so you may want to bring extra blocks or levelers. Other than that, there is no TV reception, but free WiFi that seems pretty good. I've had it go out a couple times, but it comes back right away. We are in a valley here, so everything echos, including the train. I cannot see tracks, but I sure hear it. Also, there seems to be a race track nearby because I heard cars racing this evening.

We didn't get going as early as we'd hoped so we didn't get here early enough to take a pic before the sun went down, but here's a pic of our MH. You should be able to recognize it as you pull into this loop. It's partly behind a big pile of dirt :


See you all tomorrow!
Jon

P.S. As for the potluck, I told the lady at the office about it and she said we're welcome to use the big "group camping area" for that. There is a big party tent set up there with tables and chairs. She said there's another group or two here this weekend (not as big though), so she thought we'd only use half of the tent. From the size of the tent, I think we would have no problems.

Hey Jon, it's around Midnight here in Michigan, and Cindy and I are going to be leaving way Early so we can try and make it on time. We had to stay a day late because of a funeral.

I'm wondering how long it took you to drive there since we basically are coming from the same place?

See ya soon. Cindy will be checking emails while we're driving, so hopefully we can find out in the AM.

Pat

Hey Pat,

BTW, it's about Midnight here too. We left about 10 A.M. and got here about 8 P.M. I don't know how much actual drive time was involved because my dad's work kept calling so we'd pull over and he'd deal with that while my mom drove. Plus we made a fuel/lunch stop at a Flying J just before PA, so that took some time.

Since you want to get here quickly, I assume you aren't taking backroads. If that's the case, we went M14 to 275, 275 to 75, 75 to 80/90, 80/90 to the 80 split, 80 to rt. 220 (exit 161) and down rt. 322 to PA 75 and to the camp.

We found that rt. 322 has a 5 mile long 8% grade hill. We were very careful with our air brakes, but I'd be careful with a trailer. There is a lane at the top of the hill urging anyone with a GCWR of 16000 lbs or more to pull off and stop before attempting down the hill. My dad decided to follow a semi down who didn't stop. That was a mistake. Once you get moving, it's pretty hard to stop. We had no problems because we have an exhaust brake (like your Tow/Haul mode) that we used the whole time so we could keep our brakes on reserve. The truck on the other hand started smoking toward the bottom. If nothing less, this'll be a good trial run for those hills you'll encounter out west! I have to say that the whole ride along 322 was one of the prettiest drives I've been on in a while. There's one area where they have you down to one lane for construction, but the views are so spectacular you almost forget there's concrete barriers on either side of you! I remember one area that they cut out the mountain and you can see all the rock layers and colors. Very beautiful. If you see it in time, you may want to have Cindy snap a pic of it.

If we could do one thing different, we would have stayed on "Old Route 22" longer and picked up River Road farther down. We followed Mapquests directions by turning onto McBurney road and it's a small residential street that our CB antennas hit almost every branch. I think we might have touched a few power lines too. (we're 12'5" to the top of the AC's) Besides the low branches and power lines, a few individual's vehicles were hanging out in the road and made it especially hard to get through. I don't think height will be an issue for you (we cleared the path for everyone ), but the road can be hard to get through depending on the traffic.

Have a safe trip,
Jon

Thanks Jon, We will be there hopefully between 4 and 6. It is 5am and we are sleepily yet anxiously headed your way. I can't wait to see everyone.

Drive safe all,
Cindy

Jon - Our friends' name is Richard, so no it's not Joseph Yake. See you all soon

Jon - thanks for the info, we'll be on the road soon, see you this afternoon.

FYI - Frank & Sharon Yake's forum name is nasa42a. They just returned from a 36 day trip in their Que, just in time to join us.

Thanks, It was a long day yesterday and I didn't think to put Yake with Yake. Anyway, the change has been made.

Jon
