l) Camp America (Chris Romaine, Lars H, and others) are almost always down past the basketball court, on the loop road, on the left. When the road divides by custom everybody turns R. . . go about another 200 feet and look to your left.
2) Keep going on the ring road, as it turns around and starts leading back to the main area, just before you get to the bathrooms, there is Hobo Pie on the left. Hobo Pie is both a very good band AND a source of food-- the very wonderful people who make them put a bunch of fillings inbetween two slices of white bread and heat till gooey. It can be nourishing (better than any hamburger!) or sweet (ask the kids) . . . FREE because they can't charge (but have been known to accept donations under the table)and it's a labor of love. I'm avoiding mentioning names of the people involved deliberately.
The meals in the main lodge are edible; that's about the most that can be said for them, and served cafeteria style; price around $5 for a breakfast and maybe $8 for a dinner. It's a much better deal to get a cooler and ice and a camp stove and make your own. Better yet, camp near us and be part of our communal meals.
Gosh, this is wonderful to think about. . . it's 20 F out and tomorrow's forecast is for freezing rain gradually changing to snow, with 6-8 inches expected. But NEFFA and mt. Airy and Clifftop are coming!
