I'll camp Thursday and Friday nights then head home Saturday. I planned
to go last weekend for the Black Forest Star Party, but Irene changed my plans.
If you ever get a chance to visit Cherry Springs, by all means do it. They have nice
bathroom facilities, but no food or showers. The dark sky is just beautiful.
The daytime motorcycle riding is best part of the trip.
Wow, I missed you by a few days. ( I missed spelled Cherry in my original post. Was using my fancy new phone!)
I was told the main field was packed with astronomers. 75% left by Sun morning due to the rain. The holdovers had great skies Sun night through Tues. The guy sitting in the chair with white shorts in my last post is a well none regional astronomer & photographer/writer. Or so I was told. They all take pictures and analyze the images on laptops. Not like when we were kids.
And I agree, the roads were tons of fun. I road right through Higens on Rt 125 for quite a while. It was smooth enough for a skate board. Most of the roads like new in Central PA, at least the secondary roads.
