Well when we decided on this location gas wasn't $4 a gallon. Plus its pretty close to where the mine tour is and Steamtown. If you really wanted to push it you could probably get from the mine tour to the campground in under 40 minutes. Be sure to follow the directions I gave to get there, Not sure what the maps are giving but the ones I provided will be the absolute fastest from I-81.
The thought is nice but I'm assuming you mean truck load? In any event when I say a few logs thats just what I mean especially if you're coming that far considering the gas prices, probably be cheaper buying a cord...
For those of you that don't have access to wood don't worry about it. ...and on the other hand if you have a lot and want to bring it that's great too.
Superior would on your way to the campground if you're coming from Maryland. Coal Berner mentioned a spot you can park a trailer down that way if that is what you want to do.
As I mentioned in the first post in this thread if anyone is interested I'll stay overnight Sunday night so you can pick your coal up Monday morning on the way back if you're coming from that direction. For those coming from the south on I-81 or the west on I-80 you may want to consider this.
There's also Hudson which is much closer. My original thought was to get everyone together to get their coal from there Saturday morning because its only a 10 minute drive from the mine tour but everyone wants to get it from Superior. They won't open on Saturday without 50 ton commitment.
