    I am on the fence, I should be doing so much else. I may change my mind. When is every one else going out? Where are you staying? I would camp, go out just for a day… thanks

      I know how you feel, Bob, but I'm going anyway :o) I'll be staying at Laurel Hill State Park, which is conveniently right down the road from 7 Springs. Hope you get all your stuff done!
