  1. Lonnise: Do you know whether there are a number of guest rooms here at Oak Crest?
  2. Lonnise: This idea has just been getting going since this morning, so we'd eventually find what dates and days of week would be best for everyone if it turns out there is enough interest That might mean a weekend, so if you found it one that would be available for you and Rob, maybe you could come... FYI, everyone else: Lonnise's mom lives a couple of floors down from me! Small world!
  3. It looks like Shepherd's Spring is very close to Martinsburg, which I hear has some interesting places. Both are in a beautiful area.
  4. Hi, swamper. Thanks very much for your suggestion. I will surely look it up.
  5. Hey, there, Lonnise! I was trying to find one of your prior-mails to me to find your e-mail address, but it took me a number of tries before I could remember how to spell your name. I had wanted to make sure you were aware of our planning to get together. And yes, Pappas Restaurant has wonderful food, and I had never noticed it has a fireplace. Probably because the restaurant is always so crowded. Btw, they are known for their crab cakes, but I wouldn't recommend them unless our blue crabs are in season.
  6. I'll do a search for a lodge or someplace else not too far away from me that has wood-burning fireplaces. A retreat center may be a good possibility.. In fact that may be the best place to have our get-together
  7. Shrewsbury is 20 minutes from Hunt Valley. .
  8. Re: the fireplace. Perhaps there is a restaurant somewhere that has a real one that we could sit in front of.
  9. Nice, Dianne!!!!!!!!! How very nice it would be to meet you in person.
  10. Bummer that the fireplaces are gas instead of wood. I love wood-burning ones. The smell and the crackling and watching the wood burn down are all so nice
  11. I forgot to mention, too, that a little "park" area on the campus is in construction that has bocce ball courts, a putting green, walking paths with benches along the way...and maybe a few other things. And there are pool tables in the buildings near the fireplaces.
  12. I wonder if we could arrange for others to come for an early fall visit. I live in a large retirement community in independent living. It is very near a nice park, and even just walking around the loop road of the community is pleasant, and there are places to sit near ponds--a small one with a lot of of turtles and a larger one with geese. We have a little--I mean little!--walking trail through a wooded area that takes about 20 minutes or so to walk. Halfway is a bench and bridge over a stream where it's so nice to just sit. Perfect for Parkies (and probably hiking poles or ski poles would help, as the first part gently slopes down, and the second part is a little steeper). There are (gas) fireplaces in three of our buildings around the campus. Meeting rooms are abundant. Meals are very reasonably priced and good. Am about 30-45 minutes from BWI airport. I have a very small apartment, but have two sofa beds I could offer, and there are numerous motels nearby. If we do manage to pull off some sort of group get-together, I would need to approach Administration and also the dining room to ensure they would be okay with our group being here. I think it will be, as long as it is coordinated with them.
  13. Lad, please see the second question in the first sentence of my post....
  14. So let's see... Do you mean coming down 83 South from York? If so, can you remind me where (what town/route) you cross the line into Maryland? I can estimate from there. There are good roads (Interstate all the way when you come 83 South). I would say the best time to travel 83 South and then 695 East is between 10:00 and 2;00 because of extremely heavy rush-hour traffic at the other times. Also, after 6:30pm or so is good. From Hunt Valley it takes about 1/2 hour or so to get to my place. It would be interesting to hear if there are others within a reasonable distance from where I live.
  15. I'm impressed. You did really well,
