Hi gang,

This is slipping up on me faster than I'd like it to :) Still planning on
doing an outing-in-French Creek the weekend of July 29th - 31st. I plan to
arrive on Friday night and set up camp. Actually, I'm hoping that the two
folks coming with me can just knock off on Friday and we get there early to
really scout. I can't promise this though. One of the people coming has a
nose to the grindstone advisor right now.

I haven't heard back from Wally, so we're going to be going by suggestions if
I don't get there to look. I'm open to taking any suggestions... Probably the
classic mussel localities are a good place to start. Matt Ashton, can you
please see if you can get any of that information? I'm going to see if I
can't get some info from Dr. Cavender as well.

I looked into camping. I think our best place to stay will be-in-Pymatuning
State Park:

That will give us a good place to start and within a short drive of our
locations, and a nice general meeting place. It looks like we'll be staying
at the Tuttle Campground, as that is the designated dog area. We could meet
in the Visitor parking lot-in-a time we all agree on.

So I guess what would best now, is for those who are definately going to
contact me off list with when you'd like to arrive, and with any cell phone
info, stuff like that so we can be as organized as possible. Once we have a
good idea of who what when where, I'll reserve a campsite on the phone (and
ask for an open block) and then pass along the campsite number so others can
do the same.

I'd also ask that you buy your liscences on-line if that is even a remote
possibility, or prior to Saturday morning. They can be purchased-in-the PA
Fish and Boat Comission Outdoor Shop:

Okay. Anything else?

Looking forward to it!
