Rt 501 PA hang Oct 6/7
MacEntyre is going to be in the area Oct 6 (Sat) and (Sun) 7th. He's passing through on business on his way north. Hanging near the pottery shed shelter. Join us! Everyone's welcome.
I think they still deliver pizza to the parking lot from Pine Grove. Sat night possibility! :)
Edit...We will be heading up Friday night
Can we make it a Friday and Saturday night hang, 2Q?
I can arrive at your house about 2pm on Friday.
Post updated...see you on Friday.

Looking forward to seeing you, GLP!
I am new (3 weeks) to the forums. Looking for info and actually seeing some hangers. Can you provide some directions? I can get to Pine Grove but do not know where the pottery shed shelter is.
I've been reading most of the DIY posts and will be getting material for a hammock in October.
Would love to meet all of you, but alas I'll be 300 miles away at a wedding.
Take 78 west, I believe the Pine Grove/route 501 exit is 13. You'll see the midway diner, then a few miles a huge backyard HAM radio antenna, both on your right. The exit is within yards of the HAM stuff.

It's a long strip, the end you'll see first has an AT sign there, you'll want to park near the other end as that's closer to the shelter. I believe the is a very short blue blazed trail that leads right to the shelter itself. Turn left onto the AT (white blazed) walked about 50 feet to the first camp site on the right. I'll be jealous I can't be there.
BTW if you really want to make some friends quickly, stop at this place at about exit 40 on 78.
Get the smoked sausage, as it doesn't need to be kept cold. Heats up great over an open fire. Make sure you have enough for GLP. and if Dutch comes you may want to pick up an extra pound.
BTW, I'm more jealous if you do stop
