Punderson, although it has a very poorly designed Campground, is a winter wonderland.  It has ample snow and things to do in the snow.  It's the only or at least the only close-to-Cleveland electrical-available winter camp. It is about an hour east of North Olmsted, Ohio


This is our MLK day off school campout.  We met WA8BXN and family with plans for dinner at Belle's and a nice turkey dinner.

January 18

35 degree high with about 2 inches of snow.  The TV antenna broke and we have a big hole in our roof where that used to be.  Mom, I, and the kids ate at Belle's and went home for swimming on 1/19.  Dad is alone.

January 19

Kelly and Dad took a long walk.  Mom and the kids arrived for lunch.  We played Uno, cards, all kinds of stuff, even some Nintendo.  The Iraqian war started a couple days ago so we have been keeping an eye on that.

January 20

A beautiful night -- unfortunately it went up to 45 degrees and everything melted into mud and yuck.  But we had a fantastic shared (with BXN and KA8ZVV) turkey dinner.  Yum!  Great!  Excellent!

Then:  WINTER STORM WARNING!  Danger!  10 inches of snow!

Out we went ... we like the snow but we need to get out to go home.  We go.  Otherwise we would have stayed.
