Potter County - West Branch Rd.

If anyone knows the owners of this camp please let them know they have a little work detail. It is located on West Branch Rd at the base of Indian Run. I believe they are from the York area but I don't know for sure.

If you come to the end of a path, do not turn back, continue on and make your own trail.

I always worry about that happening to camp. Boy that would really suck arriving to camp to have to deal with that problem.

Re: Potter County - West Branch Rd.

Judging by what I saw last weekend while up north, there will be many work parties ahead for some camp members?

Washed-out roads, driveways and some flood damages. Expected my driveway to have been washed out a bit, but it held up pretty well. No trees down around the camp itself, but plenty toppled out in the woods.

To be honest, it looks like that old roof (truss system) held up fairly well given the size of the tree and the force it could impose. Impressive, and could be worse. The tree could have went to the floor.

Re: Potter County - West Branch Rd.

Often depends if the tree came down with a quick Thud! Or slowly descended, the fall slowed by other trees and/or a root ball that took its time snapping off and letting the tree down slowly?

Had one of the huge weeping willows drop at camp a few years ago, during a fierce wind storm. Made one heckuva crash, that I could hear over the howling winds that night.

Knew something had come down, so went outside with the Maglite D cell and looked around. The "white" glow that I saw out in the darkness and first thought were broken limb stubs, turned out to be some of the broken roots, now about 8 feet off'n the ground.

Cut that big tree up and oddly enough, the 6' long stump eventually "righted" itself to almost vertical and now the tree is growing again, as willows are wont to do. More of a willow bush, than a tree at the moment.

Re: Potter County - West Branch Rd.

Ya can take the boy outta town, but ya can't take the town outta the boy.



Still have a TV antenna on my camp, but not sure why, now that it can no longer pick up a signal?
