Maybe was him. The fellow carved me a wooden indian as a thank you for providing him the logs to carve during the event. Have it sitting on the front porch to welcome friends.
The only other one I can think of is a stocky blonde haired guy---------Brian Ruth.  I ran into him at the Kutztown Fair a few years ago.  Nice Guy.

Brian does a lot of Indian carvings too.

Well the guy who started this hasn't been back 
  So we need to figure out who's willing to travel a little ways & where this will be held (if anyone is even interested)  As I said before I'm willing to go to the Johnstown area & State College area. I'd also be willing to go to the Harrisburg area or anywhere in that circle. I'll also volunteer to make some sausages to bring...

So what does anyone else think?

I have a farm and work full time.   

If you decide on a time and place I will try to make it.

I'm guessing a weekend would probably work better for most people?

This sounds pretty good, would be great to learn few things first hand or be able to share something I know.

I've been back, but I've been waiting to see how many people responded.

I was going to offer to host at my place if the group was small or suggest a camp ground if the group got too large.

I'm in Mechanicsburg, PA (Just outside Harrisburg). GrangerMan has offered up his property which is an option. The camp ground I was thinking of is Little Round Top Campground in Gettysburg (destination location with sites to see for the spouses / kids). They offer Cabins, tent sites, and full hook up sites.

I was thinking a Saturday get together would probably be best unless we did the camp ground then it would be a weekend thing.

Keep in mind Gettysburg is a zoo around tourist season, but if you were to do it maybe you can fit it into Gettysburg BBQ festival, its called chili brew and BBQ, July 12th

I posted info into the kcbs section of these forums if at all interested

We've been camping down in Gettysburg for the past 3-4 years and we've never had a problem. But then again we always plan to be there when there is nothing big planned like no major battle anniversary, or events planned.
