    Michaux is amazing in the Fall time, but no matter where it is I would most likely be able to attend with enough notice.

    Bald eagle state park, maybe? Quite literally smack in the middle of the state.

    I'm interested (but NOT avail Oct 19/20/21).

    The intersection of Route 80 and Route 476 (Hickory Run State Park) could draw a lot of bushcrafters

    Hey, Im sure you know this already, lol, but Tella and I are huge into Halloween, and have a party every year. We just thought of this idea earlier today; A horror halloween party out in the woods. We plan on doing this at group site five at weiser state forest in port clinton this year. Would you guys be up for that? We really hope to have a good turn out!

    ?? in Maryland? Definitely too far for me. Not to mention, I'll be away for training.

    I'd be willing to go a little father if someone in the area were up for a carpool. I'm just west of Philaelphia. Otherwise... I think my max drive time is going to be 2 1/2 hours. Having said that, Michaux is right at that sweet point of 2 hours and 24 minutes drive time.

    I've also been wanting to get out to Michaux for some time.

    Depending what weekend I would be in. If it's during small game season we should do somewhere you could hunt if so inclined. I will drive pretty much anywhere and like to see new territory.

    Watching just to see if this lands on a weekend that I'm free. Between a job, kids and a business, this fall is pretty busy and we ain't even there yet. I would like to meet some folks finally. It's been years since I made it to a proper campout-type meet.

    What dates are we talking about currently? @designtom said he's unavailable Oct 19-21. I should be available Oct 6 or Nov 3, but transportation there/back may be sketchy unless I get a car before then (in the market).

    As long as it is not during Muzzleloader season, I should be available any weekend after October 20th and before Rifle season. I like the idea of possible small game hunt.

    Boy, I would love to get together with some folks. But it may have to wait until a bit later. I'm running a WFA class the weekend of Nov. 3rd., so I'll be busy.

    You're all invited to come to that. ;)

    I was thinking of possibly hosting a meetup up at the one designated camp site in Pinchot State Forest at some point. But I need to try to plan that around the upcoming holidays and hunting seasons during that time of year. It would be kinda cool to be able to hunt during the meetup and cook up some game.

    I should be able to swing November. I'm just waiting to see where we land to see if I'm able to drive it.

    I'm free that weekend (Nov 3). I'll see about getting it on the books.

    @Sandcut let me know when that trip gets set up! That sounds like a lot of fun.

    Well my work schedule now rolls Thursday to Sunday so my weekends are gone for quite sometime. So I'll have to back out of this one. Hope you ladies and gents have a grand old time!

    I'd be interested in attending a meet up if you didn't mind a Marylander sneaking into the group.

    Doable for me, just a mere 3 hours from home. Interesting that none of the trail reports discussed a campsite or spring. My concerns are the AMD (acid mine drainage) in the area (photographs and reported)and because of that fresh potable water might be hard to come by.

    Just realized this was in State Game Lands, campfires are prohibited. Might not be a good location.

    Weekend of Nov 3 should still be good for me. I'm pretty flexible on places.

    Nice! The Hertlein campsite is definitely doable for us! It's less than an hour drive away. I believe and day will be good for us as long as we have a couple weeks notice, so we can schedule it in.

    I think I could do a Saturday overnighter on that first November weekend that most people are leaning towards.

    Hertlein, is a bit out of my travel "reach". I'll have to bow out, but maybe can get a regional meet-up together on the 3rd up north.

    Wow, my 1,000 post

    Hertlein campsite is just 19.6 miles due east of the originally queried St Anthony's wilderness. Hop, skip and a jump. People literally walk to it from the Stone Tower trail (that's a joke).

    Hertlein would be too easy for me to get to to have an excuse not to go!
