The Brunswick Family Campground was in a great location. We traveled down a mile long dirt road to get to the old air field which had been transformed into a campground situated right on the C & O canal path. This path along with others it connects to can take a rider from Pittsburgh to Washington, DC. Many youth groups and scouts bike on this trail and stop over for a night at the campground. The first night about 50 tenting cyclists were there. On the second night there were only a dozen which was good since around 11 PM there was a bad thunder storm with heavy wind. All of the tent campers and even some of the campers in RVs spent most of the night in their cars or at the rescue center in town. When we got up in the morning there was no power and many trees were down. Cars, trucks and campers were damaged. We spent several hours piling up tree branches and we discovered the lines were hanging too low for us to leave (other shorter campers could fit under the lines.) We spent the next two days with no electric. We had a great time swimming the the Patomac River. We played with sparklers, had a water balloon fight and learned about motors. We built some really cool robots (thanks Miss Lisa.) It was very hot without air conditioning so we spent most of our time outside. We used our generator to watch TV in the evening. Finally we were out of gas for the generator, low on food and anxious to get to our family in Pennsylvania so with no help from the electric company in sight we decided to take matters in to our own hands. Marc tested the wires and there appeared to be no power in the lines so he used the fallen branches to prop up the wires and we were able to barely fit out.
