Please plan on a light up each night at the pavilion (the one where we eat) around 8:00 pm. Please bring a lantern or ten!
We will also do a group photo at that pavilion on Thursday night around 7:00.

Put us in for baked ziti on Thursday, baked macaroni and cheese on Friday and Saturday, we will probably fend for ourselves on Wednesday not knowing how early we will arrive. We are staying about 6 hours away on Tuesday.

How about Gen. Pickett's Battlefield horse meat loaf as an entree? Watch out for the minie balls.

I certainly will miss Chef John's smoked meat delicacies.

For those who aren’t on any other social media, my son and myself will be attending the gathering for the first time this year.
We’ve paid up and hopefully we’re there before dark on the 7th.

Looking forward to seeing everyone there and being near a historical site that we’ve not had the opportunity to honor before.

Just a bit clearer though 😆😆

Same here John!
I started here on the forum back in 2018 and it still feels like home when I come back to visit.
That being said, it’ll be fantastic to put some faces to the fantastic people here.
Safe travels John and we’ll see you soon 👍🏻

As always, this gathering is the same weekend as the big telephone collector's show in nearby Lancaster, PA and as that is my main vice (see related thread in Just Bull) I will be over in Lancaster for the duration. But, the phone show is open to the public Saturday from 9 AM to 2 PM and is free entry so anyone looking for something different to do is welcome to drop by. More information here: https://www.telephonecollectors.org/sho ... /index.htm
DougA  ... fettler and keeper of a family collection of nickel: a 249, a pair of 237s, and a 1938 228B, along with a late 1979 red 200a.  Then two more turned up, a 1941 243A and a 1944 242C, and now there's a b-day 200A lantern, too!.

Bring plenty of $$$. You will be suprised at what you will see for sale. Could be anything for the discriminating Coleman Collector.

Great ice cream shop in Gettysburg - homemade real ice cream and soft serve. Mr. G's

3 supermarkets - Kennie's, Giant, and Weiss; plus, a regular Walmart.

Devil's Den and Little Round top are closed for rehab by NPS.

Horse rides to battlefield available from campground. Biking trails through the military park. Be aware, ticks can be encountered in the campground as there is pasture and horses. Bring repellent and consider long pants.

Bus tours of the battlefield can be scheduled at campground and the bus can pick you up at the camp office.

You can actually take a short walk from the campground and be on the battlefield. The campground was actually where the Union Artillery Reserves were stationed.

Check out Sweney's Tavern at The Farnsworth House - you can see bullet holes in brick wall.

>>Devil's Den and Little Round top are closed for rehab by NPS.

Rehab of those locations? What's involved in the rehab of the 100 ton boulders at Devil's Den? I was there last year and can't imagine what they could be doing that they need to shut those locations down to tourists. Not denying what you stated, I just can't imagine why.

Hopefully they're leaving the covered bridge alone as it provides good entertainment by the ghost hunters. I'm not suggesting that there aren't lost souls that haven't crossed over, but to think that lost souls are going to show up because you're running a class with hundreds, if not thousands worth of equipment, well, I do find that silly.
