    Scotty's Chicken for 40 sparked the idea of a Hearth.com get together. A harmonious meet up filled with bucking logs, smoking delicious foods over an open flame and of course your drink of choice. All things we love to talk about here. I decided to create a new thread to enhance visability of this idea and gauge general interest.

    As a starting point, we are looking for a host or for a suggested location where this would be possible. What say you?

    I was part of the "Chicken for 40" and this is my subscription to this thread....

    Im game. I have property (less than 10 acres) but dont have "Woods" to cut in..

    Plus I like the idea of the Host getting a Keyhole pit for Free as Scotty suggested. I will bring supplies and some rocks.. If everyone brings a little, the whole thing wont cost a lot... Im very interested.

    I vote Connecticut. Kind of partway between the PA folks and the ones up north here. Driving distance would not be too bad.


    We have to add lobster and steamers in the mix, no?

    So the question is, who would like a free firepit? And some firewood to go with it? I was thinking, now because you are to be the 'host' of the event, it does not necessarily have to happen right at your house. The most ideal situation would be for us to find someone that has a campground near their place. We could stay at the campground, and go to the GTG so we are not in the hosts 'hair' all day and night. Any ideas or takers, I'm game for a weekend. Don't be shy, if you know someone near you who is needy and could use some firewood, we could even donate the cuttings to them. I think its a great idea, we just gotta find some land.

    Going on those parameters, we're looking at the eastern coast of PA, North NJ, Southern NY and Western coast of Conn. Who lives in these areas?

    I don't really know what to say there. I'm thinking upstate PA, maybe northwestern PA. Not sure. What do you other guys think? I am game for anything, really. Who amongst us has a location?

    Any way a techie can get a map of the PA and New England area up somehow and lets us pin our locations and see what ranges we are talking about. Anyone know of a site that we can plug in zip codes maybe?

    How about this site? Someone can run with it and put approximate locations and see where the chips fall.

    I'm two hours north of Syracuse, NY. What time of the year are you talking? I'm not central for you guys, but may be interested in attending if I have the weekend off.

    Pa is pretty Central. I dont care if its eastern or western. But considering the majority of members that have posted are from Pa (3 right now), 2 from Ohio, 2 from Michigan, 1 from Ma, and 1 from NY. There are several others that roll right off the tongue (Gamma, Hogz, Golfand Wood, Jwoair23, and others) from Pa... But many from the Iowa, Illinois area. Which still puts Pa in the Middle??

    There are campgrounds almost anywhere you go. Even if its a 30-45 minute drive from the Hosts home. I drive an hour to work daily.. 57 miles in a blink. 114 round trip. Daily... Have truck. Will drive :)

    Your not dreaming.... It could be Maryland, Jersey, NY, Connecticut, etc..

    I was just counting out loud of the members that have posted so far.

    Maybe the word should be spread? Just drop a lil bomb in some hot current threads?

    Just post a lil something at the end of a post tonight and then add : Northeast Get-to-gether (Saws, Pit & Food!)

    Man if we could just find a place where someone has a woodlot that needs some cleaning up, and also in need of a fantastic keyhole firepit, we could do this. Maybe shoot for a weekend in September or early October, when it is still warm enough to camp out. C'mon, someone out there has what we are looking for......This would be really cool....

    I'd tell the parents about hosting their 10 acres for a shindig,but the cleanup is about 90% caught up for now,thanks to yours truly ::-) .I'm sure they wouldnt turn down an awesome firepit though. ;) Its easily 1000 miles from y'all in the east I'm guessing.....

    If I had the time, I'd come out there in a heartbeat. Right now, I'm pinned to being close to home.....

    My Wife and Bro-in-law own a Cabin in Pa. But I was instructed NOT to bring my Saws next week when we go up there for vacation. Only his 562XP does the wood work on the property.... And I am also not to Re-Stack his stacks!! (Believe me, I am gonna start about 3-4 threads when I get there/ one on the Cabin/ one on his stacks :)/ one on the firplace/ and one on where ya'll think a woodstove would look best).

    I would love to have it there. But my BIL keeps it in Good shape (he is there every weekend, we go every other yr or so).

    As long as there is a month or so notice, I can take a Vac Day on Fri and I will be there...! Within reason to distance. But I really want to meet some of you. I wish I was closer to Woodstock Stoves. A tour of Englander Stoves is a thought? Further South for some...
