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 an amateur radio campout!  We are meeting many other families!

October 14

Gosh, what a neat weekend!

We ended up getting the remains of Hurricane Marco and did we get RAIN, RAIN, RAIN.  We went out Friday morning (Saint NEOTA day, a day off school).  We had a great day although it rained continuously.  Until Saturday morning, when it only misted during the day.
