We did a spur-of-moment camping trip to Loft Mtn. on the Skyline Drive.......a whopping 35 mile trip each way. I went up Thursday to get a non-reservable site.....there were plenty to be had......but that was a different situation on Friday afternoon. The weather was cool, and down into the 40s at nite. Great hiking weather.

Saturday nite, some of the locals from the valley had a Blue Grass jam behind 1 of the host campers.....they had a canopy setup and a table spread for major piggn' out. Since I am originally from the valley, I knew several people there, including 1 of the band members. The missus and I sat around our campfire several sites away from the activities, and listened to the music until quiet time arrived.

Seems like a good time was had by all.

grhodes, thanks for taking an interest, i do have some pic that were taken this week end but the work was not complete. Next week end I am pulling my camper off of the site that I have had for two seasons and I am going to take some pic of what we are leaving behined.
Another member of the campground had noticed that our stuff was slowly disappearing so they jumped on the band wagon and contacted the manager before anyone else could and they now will be occupying what will be our old site.
We can look across the lake and see our old site just as we can look from our old site and see the cabin.

mtnguy; Sounded like a great time. You could have traveled 1,000 miles and not enjoyed it as much. Distance doesn't matter, getting out there does.

rockwood06; Look forward to seeing some pics. I bet you won't be missing that old spot for very long.
