1. Due to the amount of SPAM from foreign countries lately, we have made the decision to manually approve all new members. While we regret that this must be done and the added time that it will take for new members to be approved, it is necessary at this time. We hope to have legitimate new members approved in a timely manner, no longer than a couple of hours. If the Administrators are online at the time, it can be as soon as a couple of minutes. Thank you for your patience.

    This is the 9th year for this event. Dates are Fri., Sat. and Sun. Oct. 6, 7, and 8. Cost is $10.00 per person. Camping is available for tents, hammocks or RV's. Bring your own food and water. I provide dinner Sat. nite along with a raffle and giveaways. Bring items for the trade table. Something new this year will be an addition to the traditional beer of Gosstoberfest which has always been Sam Adams Octoberfest. I got a line on a beer I'm been trying to get pictured below. So if you enjoy adult beverages this will be available. Hope to see you there in October. The address is

    Looking forward to this! I haven't been out in the woods much (read at all) but looking forward to some fall woods weather. And cold beer. And delicious pizza. And sharp knives.

    So....work is taking me to Minnesota for a few months, until Nov 1st. I might not make it now, but I should be moving to Harrisburg PA area so that should put me very close for future events.

    Broken back has been giving me issues for years. Got second epidural, hoping it works.

    Harrisburg is nice, got a Bass Pro at the mall. Close to Cabelas and Hawk Mountain. Also close to blinis, pierogies, kielbasa etc...

    Is @Lerxst2112 doing Sunday breakfast for a ridiculously reasonable fee again? That has been on of many highlights for Jake and I the last few years.

    I hope @Lerxst2112 is doing breakfast again. I missed it last year. I also want to pick his brain about cast iron cooking.

    Looks like we're a month out. Looking forward to seeing everyone again.

    Someone will be going home with this old school 1 3/4" wide, 8" blade, A2 steel BBT this year. This is the giveaway knife in the raffle this year.

    It is with a heavy heart and a stuffy head and sore body that I have to inform you all that well will not be attending this year.

    I have flu and it sucks.

    This would have been out 5th consecutive year that Jake and I have been camping on his birthday, which is Sunday.

    We don't take this decision lightly, but I'm really sick, and camping with a 9/10 year old 3 hours from home is not a good way to recover from illness.

    Have a great time and I'll be watching for reports here!

    We're gonna have some unbelievable talent in attendance this weekend. Survival/Bushcraft instructors and experts. Magazine writers, former and current Navy Seals, forging demos, Bladesports competitors and a whole lot of other experience folks.

    It was another successful event. Thanks to all that were able to come. As usual, I'm busy running around, never get a chance to take photos.
