Groundhog Day At Punxsutawney, PA (N35)

  • Feb 2, 2013 · 12:00 PM
  • Punxsutawney Municipal Airport

Admittedly, this event is for the more adventurous in our group. Yes, it's on Groundhog Day, the sole reason for conducting this 262nm (from KBDR) pilgrimage. In addition, the majority of the actual festivities in Punxsutawney will have concluded by the time we get there (Phil, the groundhog, gets his wits scared out of him by the TV lights and noisy crowds very early in the morning).

There's a lot to do if you go early though. Check out http://www.groundhog.... and http://www.punxsutawn... for details.

Our goal is to somehow make this happen. Our concerns will be to locate suitable fueling locations, transportation to and from the airport, and a place to get lunch.

But hey, if we pull this off, we can boast that "We were in Punxsutawney on Groundhog Day".

Here's the raw info we have:

The airport should have fuel. The contact numbers are:[masked],[masked], or[masked]-1137.

The Punxsutawney Chamber Of Commerce:[masked]

Possible fuel stops along the way include:

Bloomsburg (N13)[masked]
Danville (8N8)[masked]
Philipsburg (KPSB)[masked]

National Car Rental
DuBois - Jefferson Co. Airport, RD 2, Route 830
Falls Creek, PA 15840
(toll free)[masked]

If all else fails, the alternate airport is Du Bois-Jefferson County Airport.

If the whole thing gets scrapped due to bad weather, you can check out the 1993 movie "Groundhog Day" starring Bill Murray.
