Great Post! Thanks

I was lucky enough to spend a day at Three Mile a few years ago. It's hard to tell what century you are in until you get to the space age toilet facilities.

We used to visit the AMC campers on the island back in the mid seventies. We found that a keg of beer does not float while trying to deliver it via the swim platform. Getting it off the bottom, in the dark, was quite the effort. The results were worth waiting for however.

Thank God for Three Mile Island!

When kayaking the span from Black Cat Island to Bear Island in three-foot waves it sure is nice to have the Three Mile Island safe haven in between.

I'm huffing and puffing just thinking about it.
