    Well I'm thinking it's likely to be Peters mtn Shelter. Either way it should be fun. Last year I was getting drunk dialed from the Warmer, pics sent to me of various drinking establishments, ect while I was trying to sleep at the Fontana Hilton.

    Default Brew tour

    i'm organizing a brew tour that starts at 11AM on saturday & continues indefinitely.

    it will begin at the doyle hotel bar & will end at the doyle hotel bar, and in between we'll also be visiting the doyle hotel bar.

    samplings will consist of yeungling, with perhaps some palate-cleansing coors lights mixed in.

    please rsvp so we know how many to expect for this event.

    Thanks for the info Andy. Anyone have any other ideas other than donut hockey?????? So far hiking video(s)? in rooms, work trip to AT museum or a day hike on Saturday, art show in Matty's room. Oh yea, forgot to mention there is a new 'strip club' on Route 322 next door to the Riviera bar.

Possible work trip to the AT museum on Saturday of that weekend, we'll need to conact Larry L. as still plenty of work to be done there.
    Not sure if they are doing anything at the museum this spring. Apparently, as hoped,the basement will not be opened this year. As per Larry's updates, only a few changes will be made to the current floor in use. Some if not all museum items are now in storage somewhere else until the museum is climate controlled.
    You can help the museum fund by becoming a 2011 museum society member and/or donating. GO to atmuseum.org

    From the site: "Important! As a fledgling museum, only a portion of our space is being utilized, and of course money is a major need to develope other floors to include exciting exhibits. This year, our Fund Drive focuses on obtaining enough donations to recieve an annonymous $50,000 matching grant which would make it possible to prepare the remainder of the building to become part of the Museum. A report, available thru this link, will (1) help to make you aware of all that we have done so far, culminating in the astonishingly successful Grand Opening in June; (2) to let you know what we are planning for next year and beyond; and (3) to ask for your continued financial support to help us manage the steadily growing costs of the Museum. Please be a part of this endeavor by sending whatever contribution you can to the A.T. Museum at 1120 Pine Grove Road, Gardners, PA 17324. or click on Appalachian Al below to donate online."


    So, anyway, yes that would be great to contact Larry to see if we can help with anything in February.

    the letterhead for billville should be trail angel mary, and bag o tricks, as angels blowing trumpets . with angel clothes and angel halos and cherubic angel bodys. oh, wait... sorry.
    the doyal is sorta like our clubhouse. shouldnt we be wearing colors on leather? and parrelel parking our packs out front?
    if vicky and pat had a bike with a sidecart, who would drive? and would they were goggles?
    if worldwide sealevel rises so that the doyal is riverfront property, would we build a dock to marys? and would the bad hiker poetry contest then be held on a barge moored to the doyal for overflow events?
    is there anything a hiker can do in duncanon to really get in trouble? or is it some sort of intentional hiker comunity based on free love?

    I will be scrimping and saving for this as the winter has been a long a tight budgeted one. I am planning to try and do the hike in to the Doyle. Hell it's cheaper for me to be on the trail then at home if I have the Vacation days. Like a famous Blond singer once sang "One Way or another"

    Hey Roots, hope all is well. Heard everyone had a good time at Soruck. Sly and others helping out always do a great job. As for corrupting Jester.., you're years too late

    I contacted Larry about Billville doing a work trip at the Museum on Saturday of the warmer. Here are the responses so far from Larry and Margy, Museum Manager.
    Mary,
    Iím copying Margy on this. Margy had wanted to have a work trip to do some cleaning at the Old Mill. There may also be some repairs that need to be done or something outdoors. The end of February may be a little early.
    Best,
    Larry
    Hi Mary, Larry,
    What is the date for the Billville event? End of February IS a bit soon for spring cleaning--the dusting and window washing, etc, at least. I think the floor should be treated again, but with the space heaters and signs, etc. scattered around, it might be awkward to tackle it. You would need the heaters there to keep the building warm enough for comfort. There is definitely some other clean-up work needed, principally vacuuming up the millions of lady bug carcasses on the second floor. The basement still holds a lot of junk that could probably be disposed of. Don't think either of those tasks would keep a group busy very long, though.
    I'll think about it and see if I can come up with any other ideas.
    Margy Schmidt
    My response to Margy:
    Hi Margy,
    The Winter Warmer is the last weekend in February. If it pans out we would be coming to do whatever can be done on Saturday morning.
    If there isn't much to do we can sign up a limited appropriate number.
    Can the floor be done in sections moving things around to get it done?
    Let me know if you think of anything else.
    Mary

    Someone was nice enough to suggest that I might want to come to this as I will be starting a thru-hike in March. You will all have the opportunity to give me last minute advice.

    So, being someone who is not familiar with this event, how do I sign up and what do you need me to bring?

    Oh, and will I get to meet matthewski?

    Any room for an old friend ?

    DUH I don't care if there isn't, I'm coming.

    Someone wake up the Geek and tell him.

    Tricks I have a great poem.

    Jester--I have a bag of tricks for you.

    Mary - I'll bring the coffee pot love. And food. Miss you.

    What's my room at the Doyle....can't remember, I know I'm always next to Camo.
