I have fond memories of staying there in a tent for a couple weeks with two guys I grew up with when I was a teenager 40-some years ago. I never went back until my wife and I returned there with our grandson a couple summers ago. Probably not much had changed there during the interim, but somehow it just didn't seem the same.

There's also several nice forest service campgrounds near the Kinzua Dam on the Allegheny River not far from there. I did the initial surveys for them when I had a job with the Forest Service when I was in college during the 1960's.

Dream trip for me.

Every since elementary school when I saw my first pictures of cars driving through the Redwood Forests...I've wanted to go there. Hubby says, "Make it so!" I'm hoping we'll make it out there. That would be like the big grandaddy of all trips for us.

Sarasota rally in February.

Leaving May 15th heading west. Black hills, Teton, Yellowstone, Montana, Idaho to the intl rally in Salem. Then the reverse mapleleaf caravan from Salem thru Washingston state, Vancouver island, British Col, Alberta, back to Montana around August 25th.

We will leave the mountains when the snow flies.

Normally go to the Rio Grande Valley but, wife says 5 months is enough.

I hope to do a short trip in early March just to get away after having my brakes inspected and wheelbearing repacked. I then hunt turkey for several weekends + a few extra days before going to the Georgia Mountain Spring Fling in Chattsworth. Who knows after that but I plan on burning up some annual time during the middle of a number of weeks.

A week in Bangkok.

A visit to Rocky Mountain National Park plus a few days in Yellowstone and maybe a stop in Badlands on our way home.

just starting

We're committed to a trial run in June. It will be our first trailer overnight in the '63 GT.

If all goes well, we're thinking about the Region 1 rally and a few other weekends. If all goes well, we'll start a more serious restoration.

If everything goes according to plan, we'll do a couple months out west in '07.

We're headed to the Tucson area Monday or Tuesday then down to Organ Pipe Nat Monument for a few days then Quartzsite for another week. We just return from Tucson yesterday with our new 30' classic. To say we're happy is an understatement! Will make comments about the purchase, quality, wait and delivery on another thread.----Pieman

Congrats on your new Classic!

I would be interested to hear your comments about Quartzsite after you have been there.

Smile Trying some new (to us) campgrounds

We're going to try Twin Knobs Campground (Ky), Hungry Mother State Park (Va), Buckhorn Campground (Ky), and Sterling State Park (Mi) on our trip back and forth from NC this summer. Looking forward to seeing the Daniel Boone/Hal Rogers Parkway instead of driving past it. Gotta get out the checklists and maps!

I used to work on the lake summers, albeit 20 years ago.... Anyway LBL is no longer administered by the Army Corps but by the National Forest Service as a national recreation area. A couple highlights you dont want to miss are the Old home place (some images from my gallery http://www.pbase.com/professor_chaos..._bw_historical ) which is an 1860s living history set up and the bison and elk prarie which you drive through ( the place is just what its name implies). There is also Ft Donaldson on the south end of the park http://www.nps.gov/fodo/
I hope you have a great trip, let me know if you need more specific information.

We'll be de-winterizing and heading down to the Big Bend National Park just before Easter to see the wildflower explosion just before the rest of Texas arrives! A few weeks back at home then over to Savannah, up to Charleston and over to Virginia and some of their great state parks like Claytor Lake and Hungry Mother to name a couple of our favorites. CIAO.
