“Lock, stock and barrel” saying from our friends at Fort Necessity... a short drive down Route 40.

#SaturdaySAyings Have you ever wondered why a person says they own an object “lock, stock, and barrel”? The soldier’s musket gave us this saying. A musket has three main parts. The lock contains the firing components that initialize the firing sequence, the wooden stock that supports the weapon, and the barrel, which holds the main charge and delivers the musket ball to its target. If one of these parts is missing, the musket is worthless. Every soldier wanted a musket complete with lock, stock, and barrel before he went into battle.

The Purple Lizard Laurel Highlands/Ohiopyle map is one of the best tools for planning an outdoor adventure to southwestern Pennsylvania!

Our friends at Nittany Mountain Works and Organic Climbing make the perfect hip pack for a Lizard Map and some day hike essentials. Look for a special Lizard edition pack coming this fall!

A new month brings with it a new Wine and Cheese of the Month Selection and January’s picks were paired to make you feel warm and cozy as the weather turns. Try Cahills marbled Irish porter paired with Paris Valley Road’s luscious Zinfandel for the most delicious snow day ever!

As you may have already seen elsewhere... the new trails at DCLSP are OPEN! This includes the creek half of the Cherry Creek Loop and the new Purple trail on the east side of the park + dipping down into the State Forest.

Riding them on MTB? All the downhills are good with some different flavors, especially on Purple. Me? Will probably do both clockwise - like the other parts of Yellow/Green that direction and my legs need to climb back up the west side of Purple!

Hackensaw Boys

December 29th, the Hackensaw Boys (not your average bluegrass) are at the Purple Fiddle! It's an hour and 10 minutes south to Thomas, WV, but worth it! You could make a day of it going down... exploring Deep Creek Lake, Swallow Falls, visit the tiniest church in 48 states, Blackwater Falls in Davis, then to the Purple Fiddle before coming back to Fernwalk. Or, head straight to hike around the gorgeous tundra style landscape of Dolly Sods Wilderness Area, ending your day at the Purple Fiddle. If you go to Dolly Sods, make sure the weather forecast is good.
