Meet at Rainbow Mt. (Poconos) at lower field large parking lot (bottom left on the map below) at 11:30AM, pick our chairs

Driving directions to the location and spot to meet at:

Directions: Use GPS and or Mapquest to get up to Rte 80. Once on Rte 80 (decide if you need to head East or West. If in NJ head West on 80, if in PA will be heading East on 80) will need to get to exit 309, take ramp to US-209 North toward Marshalls Creek, Pass Dairy Queen in 0.9 mi on right
Minor Congestion in this area in summer at times. Then
go 3.6 mi to roundabout (circle), take 1st exit following Rte 209 North , go 1.5 mi past strip mall on left, past Wendy's on right, turn right at light onto Mt Nebo Rd, go up hill 0.8 mi to BIG parking lot on left (go in there to park & meet our group) Pool is just ahead on the right up on the hill, lodge is just beyog that on the right too. When we are crossing the road be careful as road is steep w/lots curves, and people tend to drive too fast on this rd. (Note: If you reach Naomi Ln or Ace Ln, you've gone too far)
I am new to meet up so just in case weather looks iffy again, I will log on here on Meetup and hit Cancel, and you can log on to check. Let's hope this time it's a sunny day.
