Anyone interested in having a beer and watching a Sunday game at starlight dinner in Allentown. It's off of rt 100 right by 78/22. Would like to meet local TSPers and kill two birds with one stone and catch some football.

My wife and I have been prepping for a few years now.  We're at the stage where we're looking to form or join a group with others with the same mindset.

We live outside of Jonestown PA (about 20 minutes from Lebanon, PA) in Lebanon County.

Hope to hear from some of you soon.

I'm just north of Easton in Northampton county. I'd love to get together with some like minded people to talk about prepping, guns, hunting, gardening, home brewing, etc.. After New Year's is probably good since the holidays are pretty hectic. Meetups anywhere in the Lehigh Valley or at Cabela's are cool.

Whoa you are only like 20 minutes from me! (Near Barto) Cool.
I believe, maybe, I have seen your Craigslist ads...

Hi PAPrepper,

I am about 10 mins from the PA border near Easton.  I go to PA quite a bit as my brother lives in Topton, and I go to the range over in Easton.

I'm down for a get together anywhere in/near the Lehigh Valley or at Cabelas. Lunch would be great or even a meetup at one of the public ranges. Lets pick a date.

No not much chatter.  I'm in the Bethlehem / Easton area.  Been listening to Jack for over 5 years now - wow.  Long time.  As long as I'm back on and posting, I'll ask the question I'd been meaning to post for the last couple weeks.

Anyone doing any sort of backyard permaculture in our area?  I'm looking to start a food forest / permaculture garden in my suburban type yard and  I'm looking for advice / recomendations on how to interview / hire a permaculture designer.  Post here or PM me if you prefer.

Thanks!!!

Jesse

Welcome Taters.  I'm in Philadelphia

I don't know if I would call it permaculture, but I've been planting perennial crop producers for about 5 years now.  We have various fruit trees, grapes, kiwis, asparagus and whatever else I can't think of at the moment.  I don't think you need a consultant, just get out there and start planting stuff, you can always plant more or cut stuff down as you get more experience.

On another note, I would like to go turkey hunting this spring.  I would love to hear from anyone that wouldn't mind having a novice tagging along, especially bow hunters.

Jack interviewed a permaculture consultant a while back (heck, it was probably 2 years ago) that was from PA. I can't for the life of my remember his name.

Ah, found it:

Website

Podcast

His name is Phil Williams and he is near Harrisburg if I remember correctly. He does charge fees. But maybe just call and talking with him you can get some free info.

I'll be closing on some property in the Hatfield/Doylestown area in two weeks if all goes well.
Would love to have a meetup some time.

I did actually close on that house. Been in Hatfield for a year now. Not much going on prep-wise, though.

The whole forum is a little slow anymore. But not much going on in PA either.
But funny, I can't be too far from ya.

I drove through Williamsport on what turned out to be Little League Championship weekend.  I was shocked that it wasn't nearly as much traffic as I would have thought.

I'm from PA/MD line area.

If you are just driving through, you probably took Rt 180. The LLWS is away from there a bit and most of the congestion isn't right on the highway. If you were traveling on Rt15 through Williamsport, you surely saw the chaos.

But considering they have been having the LLWS for 50+ years, they have it pretty well figured out. It nearly triples the size of the town though.

We drove straight up route 15.  Fans were going into the stadium as we drove by it.  Houses up and down the street were selling parking space for $10.  I'm not sure I'd call Williamsport, Smalltown, USA.  But it seemed like a nice place.  We drove through the old downtown part (I missed a turn) and enjoyed seeing the older building and baseball statues of kids playing.

Yeah, that intersection is a little wonky. I lived in Williamsport when I was a kid. Grew up two blocks from the founder of Little League. We would stop by his place and he would sit and tell us stories about starting LL. And take us into his shed behind his house that he had setup like a little museum. Pretty cool stuff, especially looking back on it now. Williamsport is definitely not small town. But the small communities around it are pretty decent.

Glad to see someone else in the neighborhood. I used to work for Susquehanna Health. Left there about 10 years ago.

Williamsport is a nice town, for the most part. Just moved on to working closer to home.
