Ginger and I would like to invite everyone for a lunch out on Saturday April 19th. We have made tentative reservations at Plain & Fancy Farms. http://www.plainandfancyfarm.com/ The cost is going to be $14.95/person. If interested, please let me know. We can confirm the reservations.

Along with a wonderfull restaurant, this location has it all for the Amish experience.

Spend the DayThe 9 pristine acres that make up Plain & Fancy are surrounded by Amish farmlands and located midway between Bird-in-Hand and Intercourse on Route 340, an AAA cultural scenic byway. In Lancaster County, Plain & Fancy Farm is the only place where visitors can find it all, including Aaron & Jessica's Buggy Rides, The Amish Experience Theater, Country Homestead and Farmland Tours, Country Store, gardens and farm animals.

When I get confirmation on the group pricing for the tours and theaters, I will post here and the second post of this thread.

************************************************** *******************************************
Optional activities at Plain and Fancy:

Amish Experience Theater (takes 40 minutes, shows on the hour, $10.95 per person)
Amish Country Homestead Tour (takes 45 minutes, starts quarter-to the hour, $10.95 per person)
Amish Farmland Bus Tour (takes 90 minutes, starts at 10, 12, 2, and 4 daily, $29.95 per person)

Each activity can be done on its own, but we include all three in a package called the “super saver.” It’s a discounted price ($39.95) to do all three. More details can be found online at AmishExperience.com.

Hi everyone. Jamie and I made a trip to Lancaster last weekend. The campground is making some improvements to the sites we are scheduled to be on. From what they are telling us, the site numbers will not change, but each site will now be a single back in and not the buddy sites shown on the campground map. These improvements are scheduled to be done before our visit. They said that a new map will be available online when the sites are done.

We also did some "research" for our restaurant meal the Saturday of the rally. We have it narrowed down to 2 or 3 places. If anyone has any ideas on a great place to eat, feel free to mention it.
We look forward to seeing all of you in the SPRING!

dbylinski
01-06-2014, 05:41 AM
That is great news! Those sites looked like they could be a bit tricky but we knew our guys could handle the task. Now, there will be no worries!

Touch base with Jim and Terry Ginn about the restaurant choices. They visit Lancaster often. Maybe they will have a suggestion or two.

Hi all.
I wanted to let you know what is on the menu for our lunch on April 19 at Plain and Fancy Farms. 2 pieces of fried chicken, mashed potatoes and gravy, homemade coleslaw, rolls with apple butter, vegetable medley, "sweet treat", like a brownie, cookie, or whoopie pie, iced tea, lemonade, coffee, hot tea, and ice water. Jamie and I visited this restaurant back in December and he gave the fried chicken 2 thumbs up. I didn't have the chicken, but I did have the mashed potatoes, gravy, coleslaw, and rolls with apple butter. Everything I tried was really yummy. Hope all of you will join us!

Jamie & Ginger,

Do you have any idea when the campground will begin returning messages for reservations. I spoke with a few members this week who were concerned their calls would not be returned until April 1st when they reopen. We also have Chapter Leaders who are unable to make reservations for the Summit. Is there some other means of getting in touch with them as in making online reservations?

Deb, the only numbers that I have are the ones that are on the website and the number that was on the original packet you mailed me when you first booked this Campground. Ginger did leave them a message this morning. I also emailed them a message concerning the reservations for April. info@oldmillstreamcampground.com. If we hear back from them, I will forward the information to everybody ASAP.

Thanks Jamie! I am not worried because you are on the case. I talked with Greg D. and Mike W. who both had trouble getting a call back. I also know of 2 members who are trying to make reservations and are not getting called back. They are probably busy trying to get those new sites put in before the next round of snow! Thanks again!

Sorry for the delayed responses. Two weeks ago our company did a major restructure. Monday, I was relocated to a different area. It's like learning a job all over again. It's going to take several weeks to get acclimated to my new territory which is now twice the size that it was before. Thank goodness for Internet on our phones and GPS systems.

At this point, judging from the quick response we received. I would suggest that anyone trying to make reservations, email the campground at mailto:info@oldmillstreamcampground.com (info@oldmillstreamcampground.com). You might receive a quicker response when their system comes online.

I believe Deb had initially reserved 20-25 sites, so there should be no problem getting in. That being said, If we decide to make this early season "Camp Out" into a Heartland rally for next year. Everyone will need to remember that the winter schedule for these PA campgrounds is very uncertain.

Greetings from North Carolina.

We have included the Lancaster Rally in our plans and have left a message on the voicemail a few days ago at Old Mill for them to call back so we can make a reservation. I have just read the above thread and will also send an email if they are responding to that method quicker than the phone messages.

Our plan is to arrive on 4/17 and stay until 4/21. The morning of the 18th we will be driving to Allentown to pick up our 6 yr. old great-neice who will spend the weekend camping with us.

Looking forward to meeting new Heartland friends.

OK, so I have a question. I just looked at the campground map, and we are in site 318, which looks like half a "T". How do you get in there? The website has no pics to see it at all, so I thought maybe some of you could explain how that will work. We have a 40' 5th wheel.

Thanks!

According to the campground they were going to upgrade those sites and the website says a new map is coming maybe Jamie could get a copy from them & post it here

JWalker
03-28-2014, 06:43 PM
The site map is not correct. Over the winter, they remodeled a lot of the sites that we are on. I have no idea how someone would have backed into the old sites. They are now a more traditional site configuration. If not, we will just move the rally to the parking lot.

I'll see if I can get a map

I took care of the snow piles with the front end loader a few weeks ago. They did say we had over 100" of snow this year. Madi missed like 15 days of school. If we can get it from going down below freezing at night, I might get to dewinterize soon.

We're still in the "too cold" mode as well, although I don't think at this point it's freezing long enough to do any damage. My plan is to tow out there and flush the systems when we land.

Looking at the 10 day forecast (for what that is worth), looking a bit cool for the weekend. I will bring what little firewood that I have. Anyone have some to spare and would like to bring, that would be great!!

We're done Ed! I asked the weatherman and he assured me no more freezing! It will take a prolonged freezing period to do any harm and that ain't gonna happen! At least I hope not. We are de-winterized and flushed.

Well, looking at the forecast for next week, looks like a little chilly, but dry and sunny. Perfect in my book. I think with everyone's firewood donation, we should be good. We were thinking of flushing our system this weekend but next Tuesday and Wednesday wants lows in the mid 20s, so I think we might hold off till we get to Lancaster. Can't wait.

Special thanks to Jamie, Ginger and Madison for a great season opener! Your idea of the rally signs was perfect! You guys are always thinking and we appreciate your attention to detail! The lunch at Plain & Fancy Farm was the best Fried Chicken I have had in a long time. Thank you for arranging that and taking care of the details!
