From Ohiopyle we pushed through to Confluence. "Located at the merging of the Casselman and Youghiogheny Rivers and Laurel Hill Creek, this tidy valley village gets its name from its location. The town motto, “Where mountains touch rivers,” is a fitting description, as Confluence is surrounded by some of the highest mountains in Pennsylvania." While standing on the trail deciding whether to take the bridge into town or keep chugging along, the couple that wrote the guidebook pulled up to chat with us. That was pretty mcuh the hospitality of the entire path. Everyone went out of their way to say hello and were always nice and helpful.
Those folks told us to push on through to Rockwood, and we were pretty glad that we did. " Rockwood’s history is rooted in the lumber and feed industries and railroading. Annual events like the Rockwood River & Rails Festival in June and neighboring New Centerville’s Farmers’ & Threshermen’s Jubilee pay homage to both the area’s heritage and contemporary way of life." We stayed at the Husky Haven campsite, and it was about the best campsite I've ever stayed in. Throughout the trail, there is limited cell coverage, but the owner had installed a satellite for reception, had various activites such as a pool table, internet connection, bike wash station, etc. Then you crossed the river to get to the actual camp pads, which were stocked with wood, were flat and secluded (we were the only ones there...)

  2. yeah, that one is the Butterfly Tri Gel.

    I also have the Butterfly Cromoly Gel and Butterfly Cromoly.

    It's a toss up between the Tri and Cromoly Gel which one I like better, but I've only had the Tri for a month.
