    If all works out, I'm going to do my best to make it there Friday night and Saturday night. Heck, it can't POSSIBLY rain as much as the last one......can it?
    LOL yes almost as sturdy as the Super Tarp... but not quite as large! And now that we have the Grand Gazebo you know that is our insurance that it will not rain a drop this time!

    And if we have a clear sky on Saturday night, we can drive over to the NJAA.ORG observatory at Voorhees State Park for their Open House from 8:30 pm to 10:30 pm Saturday night.

    I have invited a few other friends that will be attending the weekend - some are confirmed and some are still maybes for now.

    Does anyone know if the little tower in the video is open? Be a great place to set up tripods for beamshots for the big throwers.

    Hi Sandy - I went by Spruce Run this weekend to take a look, and it appears that access to the upper level of that tower is restricted to Park Employees. However, FYI... the bottom level contains very clean bathrooms for public use.

    If you are looking for a great area to do long distance beam shots / thrower comparisons, there are an abundance of locations to do so. Right there at the tower there is another structure with a raised front porch area that has unobstructed views clear across the lake with a shoreline of tall trees as a backdrop for the beams to land on. I'm not sure how far it is, but it's pretty far, and should prove to provide a good area for the task.

    Additionally, there are a dozen or more great vantage points around the park with clear views across the lake, (some right within our camping area), and some of the vantage points near the beach area have some water towers and cell towers in the distance that should prove to provide great targets for the super thrower lights!

    I was hoping I could make this trip. But I'm going to have to cancel. Family stuff just pushed into my weekend. Sorry, gents. I really wanted to catch up with you guys. It's been a long time since I ripped the bumper off my truck.
