Shakey needs no nametag.

BTW, I would like to say a huge THANK YOU to the members and moderators who scouted out locations, negotiated our welcome and who will ultimately have to hide the bodies once it is all said and done.

THANK YOU!!!

Props to Heritage-Angler as well who helped the mod staff tremendously in getting information on Quiet Oaks and some alternatives up north. If things aren't exactly peachy next year, we may end up using his legwork to plan for 2012.

How far is Quite Oaks from 7 Mountains? If the cabins sell/fall through at 7 Mountains . . .

H-A says 50 minute drive between the two. He is planning to commute.

Let it be known that when we were considering 7 Mountains, Jack took the time when near the area, to drive out the the CG, check it out and take photos to assure it was a decent place for all of us to camp.

BTW, just to be clear, the Jam is a group of individuals meeting at the same CG for the weekend. Each campsite or cabin booked is the sole responsibility of the individual. In other words, you're on your own.

I stayed at SM Campground the other year while fishing the region. I planned on staying two nights but ended up only staying one. The highway is only about 75 yards from the tent sites and the trucks go back and forth all night long. If you are going to sleep in a tent, I would suggest earplugs. I thought the location was ideal, with the exception of being so close to the highway.

I would guess that the Elk creek cafe is about 20 to 23 miles from the CG's. The closest bar to the CG's is the other Brownies(The Mountianside brownies), not the one in Millheim, It's just a couple of miles form the CG's

Restaurant guide:

I've never been to that Brownies, willing to try, though. I've gone past it a billion times. But, having lived in the area for years, and eating out most of em :), I got to know the better stops. So, here goes, trying to keep with the "on the way to a stream" theme.

Boasburg. Not far from the CG, on the way to LJR/Spruce, not far of a detour for upper Spring (Benner and above), you'd just take 322 to 220 and skip 144 altogether.

- Kelly's Steak and Seafood - great food, and they also serve some local brews (including Elk Creek Cafe and Otto's), but its a bit on the expensive side and perhaps a little too nice for a group of fishermen fresh off the water. If you do go in a sweaty, dirty condition, stick to the bar half.

- Duffy's Tavern - normal bar with a good atmosphere, place is old timey, everything is wood. Bar food is very good, never had much more than the fried type stuff there, so I can't comment.

For the LJR, I don't know whats down towards Spruce Creek, but along the way, these would be a very minor detour (0-2 miles), without getting you into town:

- Prospectors Allegheny Rib Co. - BBQ themed in a nice restaurant, one of my favorites, the food is great. From 45, turn right on 26, and its just a bit past the Whitehall Rd intersection. Good place for groups, but they aren't all that quick.

- Doan's Bones - BBQ joint. It's in a gas station on the corner of 26 and Whitehall, I believe. Good food, quick, if you don't have time for a sit-down meal. Also a Fox's Pizza in the same gas station.

- The Original Waffle Shop - A classic breakfast stop. VERY GOOD. It's a little farther up, though, on the corner of 26 and Blue Course, maybe a 2 mile detour if your headed to the LJR area along 45. Still keeps you mostly out of town, though there's a couple lights along the way.

Now, if you're heading for lower Spring (Paradise to mouth), there's some other options:

- PA Roadhouse & Tavern (Pleasant Gap) - Great food, good beer. As far as atmopshere, I'd call it a fancy biker bar. Pool tables and such. But its not a total hole in the wall.

- Home Delivery Pizza Pub (Bellefonte) - Don't let the name fool you, it's an eat-in sports bar, and a fairly good one.

Lots of other options in Bellefonte, including another Waffle Shop, though this is not the same chain as the one listed previously. IMO, it's good, but not as good as the State College ones (which put "The Original" in their name to supposedly eliminate confusion with the one downtown or the one in Bellefonte).

As for Penns, well, not much there, still think its the Elk Creek Cafe as a clear #1, and behind that the list is short. There's a Subway in the Snappy's gas station on the corner of 144 and 45. If you're goin to Poe Paddy, though, you'll likely be taking dirt roads through forest the whole way.

I have no idea what restaurants there are to the south, like Milroy, Reedsville, etc.

One other note, I believe commencement is the week prior to the jam, thus most students will be gone, and that means if you want to go into State College, it won't be nuts. That opens up endless possibilities. I'll highlight 1 for the local brew lovers. Otto's. I like their beer better than Elk Creek. Though for eating in, it's an ok place to eat, but doesn't match Elk Creek's food, or overall atmosphere.

Great restaurant guide pcray, thanks.

Not that we will need more firewater at the Jam, but I believe Jack observed a tavern about 1/2 a mile from the CG on 322.

Brownies along the mountain highway road is really not for eating unless you enjoy a frozen pizza cooked in a toaster oven. I mean if I was really hungry or drunk yes, but..
