    Has anyone heard of planning a Homesteading weekend up her near the Pa/NY border of north central PA. I would love to attend one. Recently in a very, very old MENS magazine they actually did have one back in the 70's !! Where was I then..on the treadmill in the big city back then !! Anyone hear of anything let me know !!

    Helena, there was some talk of assembling a get-together in NY a while back, but no one took charge so it just fell apart, I guess.

    I know there are several of us in NY who would attend, depending on the dates we chose. (I work every other weekend, as do some others).

    Perhaps the folks who have attended one in a different part of the country could advise us on how to go about organizing this? I would be happy to help set it up. Do we want to rent space at a state park and make it a weekend event, or one day at someone's place?

    I think it would be fun either way. Let's get the discussion started!
