    I have to be completely honest, I have a bit of land (22 acres), 1/2 woods and 1/2 open. I'm not the laid back type of guy, the thought of possibly 100+ people who I only know from their posts is kinda scary. I thought is was just a get together with food and drink, adding guys with chainsaws also causes some concerns. It sure would be nice to piss off my one neighbor after all the bs we've put up with them! Maybe you can find someone who is used to having huge parties! I hope I didn't insult anyone, I am just trying to explain some of the concerns a landowner may have.

    There's no coast on the west of CT. :p I think that CT is a good central location

    PA is not in the Northeast. Anything south of CT is The South, putting NYC deep in the heart of Dixie.

    The way the temperature and humidity are here anymore, I almost believe that statement!

    We'll get it figured out. We have all winter to plan that one. This one for the fall is short notice though.

    I'd be game for that. My wife's family owns a campground so we'd have that covered. Just need to find some land where a bunch of chainsaw wielding hooligans can have some fun. Hmmm....

    We could hold our own Olympics. The biathalon would be drinking and axe throwing.

    Gang, I fully understand the liability issue we all have concerning a bunch of people running chainsaws and building fires and dropping trees and stacking wood and rocks and.......lol. You all get the point. I guess what it all boils down to is we all need to be very trustworthy AND very responsible people to do a gig like this. I feel I've known some of you guys all of my life, and would love to have this thing at my place but I just don't have the property to do it. Even our camp isn't quite big enough for it, and the fact.that this would be taking place in the fall, the other guys will be up there prepping for hunting season anyway. Furthermore, we would have to get a definitive list of who EXACTLY is going to come and who they are bringing with them. We cant be expecting 20 people and have 200 show up unexpectedly. So lets continue to hash out the details and see of we can pull this off for the fall. If it works out, we may be able to make this a semi-annual or annual thing. It'd be nice to meet each other.

    I certainly agree it would be nice to meet each other. However, it does seem that most of us do enough work getting our wood supplies together, working on our homes, etc.,etc. And most of you guys do more tree work, c/s/s than I do. I personally do not want to be working if I have the opportunity to meet up with some of you guys. Jack Straw's idea of food and drink sounds like it a good idea. Maybe there is somewhere we could meet that all of us would be interested in seeing as well. A large saw mill we could get a tour of, a lumberjack type museum, a wood burning appliance place. I don't know. Just throwing those out there. A chance to relax, talk with each other, enjoy one or two nights and days not having to do any work. I know I have to actually leave my home and go away sometimes so that I will really take some time off when I have time off. If I stay home I find that I usually work harder when I am off from work. Weather it be c/s/s wood, working on the house/yard, helping out a family member on a project they have going on there house, etc. etc. Not trying to change your idea Stax. Just adding my two cents in. I live close to the border, sometimes that is with Canadian pennies.

    I hear ya on the trust and responsibility. We are all Adults here (;)) and should be able to meet up, have fun, and Not get Sued over a broken nail......

    And to add to Gasifier's comment on a place to go... I mentioned Englander Stoves above. We could meet Mike Holton :) and see there new stoves (new pellet stove and pellet grill this year to release). Or Harman is in Pa? Not sure if they do tours or have an Open house like Woodstock.....

    As for the Northeast thing.. Ohio and Pa are both Northeastern states. Cut the U.S. into quarters and there you have it :)

    I am not sure how many from the real "northeast" are going. I will bow out if it makes logistics easier for you to get more members to go down closer to PA. I'm sure I'll be at Woodstock this fall, so I'll meet some of you up there. I don't know how many up this way are considering going in the first place. I don't want to skew the location if moving it more south and west would benefit more members. I'll take the bullet.

    Yup. Same here. The more I think of it, the chance of me going this year will probably not be very good anyway. Although I would really like to, the two new puppies at home have to be considered. And I also need to buy four new tires for my truck soon. Ouch$! :mad: Doesn't take long to go through some dough at the garage. Glad I have about 44 face cord all c/s/s. At least I won't have any fuel bills to think about. ::-)

    Give me a couple of hours with a brush hog, and I have room for a comfortable 20 or so campers. The only problem would be a substantial amount of rain would have it looking like Woodstock, and I'm not talking about soapstone.

    Y'all would have to bring your fishingpol, though. I want an oven, not a firepit. And if it's cold enough for a fire, you could watch me load my stove on Friday, then maybe again on Sunday [​IMG]
