What Ignatius is saying about Staggers Inn and most anywhere out in that neck of the woods is true!!!
There are rattlesnakes & copperheads out at Staggers on the dam during the mating season. But you need to wear boots all the time out there.
If you get bit by a snake & you know for sure it was poisonous, St Mary's Hospital is the only local hospital that has the (my mind is blank right now, so will be using the wrong word) anti-venum.
If your dog gets bit by a rattle or copper, keep the dog calm and give it some benadryl if you have some on you. If you have an eppi pen, use it on the dog. You need to get the dog to the nearest 24 hr animal hospital. You have a choice, State College of Altoona. None of the vets in the area can help you, they don't have the anti-dote.
Remember - there are a lot of places that don't have cell service around our neck of the woods. If you go out hiking, biking, fishing, or whatever, please do as they ask during hunting season. Put your name(s), where you are going, what time you left, time expected back, color of vehicle used to go or using. Tack this into your camp door where your camp mates, family, DCNR, or Game Commission can check it.
“It’s like Christmas,” says freshman football player Connor Cox. “Six hours away, I can’t really go home and go to the grocery store because I don’t have a car up here, so it’s a really good feeling.”
======================================================================================= New Willmington has all kinds of little stores around the area, the regular ones, and the Amish ones. Westminster College is just down the road a bit, and not that far of a walk. Mr Connor Cox could have all kinds of fresh homemade snacks if he would learn to put one foot in front of the other!!!
