    2017 Blackwater Falls State Park,WV campout

    I moved the dates into October for this one as I want to see much more colour this year! And yes again we will come via car but that won't stop me and the hairy kids! HAHA!! I really loved the area and hope to see Seneca Rocks this time and Lost River. My friend Gary Riggs owns a saloon in Thomas if we decide to eat out maybe we can try there..he made some great spaghetti last year! We can also have our own eats at the CG.Might be a tad cooler than last year but hey I am game! If too much there is always the lodge there to stay at or a hotel in Thomas/Davis..I am sure there will be more colour for that weekend that we will see! Also if anyone would rather use cars no biggie but we can all talk BIKE etc.....

    So hold October 20-22 for this one!

    This has been a hard one for me to make. Rained out, wrecked the bike. Always something....

    Would love to come, that location is on my way to winter camp easily. But will be in Big Bend TX October 19-21/22 and can't make that much mileage in time. So I'll just go into Florida on US 10 instead.

    I would have thought everyone would be tired of sitting in the house, looking at all the snow and ready to jump on this camp-out. I guess the guys down South are already camping but for some of us, there is still SNOW on the ground.

    I figure we will see colour this time,..more of it! Dry season last year contributed to lack of colour,I was told..doing some kayaking too,same order,kayaking 1st,then Blackwater falls.

    Seems like the word WE may be involving only me and the kids aka dogs for this campout.. I guess there r less adventurous peeps out there than I thought, but then we will be using a car so I cant really say much.. If others decide to come to this just add yourselves to the RSVP please...we will likely have the run of the campground as there are not as many campers near the end of the season...I will have my tarp to hold more heat in the tent,it has served me well before when camping in 32 degree night cold! AND I am getting a cot....
