(l to r) Larry, Oliver, Thomas, HenryThomas, Henry, and I went to stay at a cabin in PA’s Michaux State Forest this past weekend. Really nice cabin with no electricity or running water about a mile from the nearest road (dirt).

The trip included five of my friends and their children. We rode in on bikes, pulling trailers full of supplies. Found the cabin well-provisioned and in great condition. Split a ton of red oak, filling all the wood boxes, the tinder box, and overflowed a couple of nice stacks out front.
Saturday, we hiked to Lewis Rocks so the kids could do some bouldering and returned early enough to cook a fantastic steak dinner complete with asparagus, broccoli, rice, bread and a Super-Tuscan.
The kids played non-stop: building forts, catching toads, burning sticks, making maps, sneaking up on us.
Sunday morning we awoke to another sunny day and a warm breakfast of french toast, pancakes, oranges, strawberries, and coffee.
After breaking camp we went to Long Pine Reservoir to wade in the stream, take a hike, relax, etc. Thomas, Henry, and I got a quick out and back mt bike ride in on Breast Trail.
