I must say the fair was quite fun and awesome and more than what I expected. NJMike it was terrific seeing you and going to dinner with you and all those other people. Met some really interesting people at the Pine Grill Restaurant when we had dinner and at the fair as well. Rickdun its too bad we missed you. Would’ve loved to meet you. The free food and lodging would be nice too. I must say that Seven Springs and the surrounding area is really beautiful although a bit too rural for my tastes, at least for long term stay, Im more of the urban/suburban type. The resort is awesome though, they’ve got an indoor bowling alley, a golf course and a shotgun range among other things. Very high end although staying there would cost big bucks. You’ve got to be as rich as a king to stay there for any good length of time. Unfortunately I had come down with a cold which had made things a bit miserable for me at the fair but aside from that I had an excellent time. The cold was no doubt the result of me pushing myself too hard, too much weight lifting and training in the martial arts. Really great seminars they had and they sold some really fabulous stuff. Aside from survivalism there was lots of stuff, products and seminars at the fair that were geared towards health and healthy living. I spent more money than I had anticipated at the fair, got a really nice axe and some bee keeping gear and some health products. Hope to go again next year. I highly recommend it.

I still have your # and will text you when it’s a more reasonable hour.

The confusion on where I was going- I was inquiring about the NC event on that topic. Then found out it was opposite this, unfortunately. I was already set on the fair since I’d been wanting to get out here for about 4 years now. I’ll try for NC next year if they’re not opposite each other.

@Rickdun, if you’re also interested in putting faces to names, you can PM here and we can exchange info or agree to meet somewhere at the fair. I’m attending all 3 days.

NJMike, your post was a day late, I left for camp on Thursday and went from there to 7 springs. Wish I had know for sure if you guys were going, you guys could have stayed with me at camp, free of charge, free food, free beer and free BS around the fire. Just got home from there.

IceFire if I remember you’re in AZ. Although this particular event this weekend is in PA they do the same function at different locations throughout the country. Maybe they will have one closer to where you live.

Photon, although I’m in AZ now, I USED to be in PA, just about 20 miles or so from Seven Springs. The closest ones to me now are either in OR, or in KS….WAY to far for me to get to. It’s too bad, because I REALLY enjoyed it, and learned a LOT!

I see. Well I might’ve driven through it but I’ve never spent time at Seven Springs but it looks beautiful from what I’ve seen on the internet. You could maybe travel long distance if you ever want to go to these events. I’ve traveled from PA to NV for certain events and sometimes I’ve flown but in some cases I’ve driven the entire distance. Driving can be more fun, you get to see everything and right now with the threat of an EMP strike from NK I am avoiding airplanes.

Prepare for information overload! Take a notebook and take notes! It’s not just the seminars…there are also the “displays”/demos outside of the seminars–the first year, there was a guy there with a truck that was run off of a wood gassifier system, in addition to a whole bunch of other things. Don’t forget about the exhibitors/merchants in the exhibit hall, either! It’s where I got my “GrainMaker” grain mill.

In Seven Springs PA on 15-17 there is going to be the Mother Earth News Fair. Seven Springs is about an hour southeast of Pittsburgh so if you’re in or around the Pittsburgh area or if you are further and plan to travel as I do, you might want to check this out I hope to be there. They’ve got over 150 workshops that teach all sorts of stuff about homesteading and survival. Everything from bee keeping, gardening of all sorts, soap making, solar power, you name it and its most likely covered in a workshop.

Here is the website. https://www.motherearthnewsfair.com

I have come to believe, that they wish to rewrite history to validate their view of America. No different than Hitler did to German history during his rise and the Jews did to Jewish history after his fall.

A few more years of californication and leftist news and we may be welcoming ISIS as our liberator. Swamp

Armed ‘patriot’ accidentally shoots self in leg at Gettysburg battlefield
http://s.pennlive.com/GdjGcUE

GETTYSBURG–A patriot who brought a revolver to Gettysburg National Military Park Saturday amid rumors of desecration of memorials accidentally shot himself in the leg Saturday.

The man in his 20s accidentally triggered the revolver, which was inside a leg holster, when he temporarily rested the bottom of his flag pole against the holster, according to witnesses.
Park police were nearby when the shooting occurred and officers quickly applied a tourniquet that may have saved the man’s life, said Sgt. Anna Rose, a spokeswoman with the U.S. Park Police.

A tourniquet type device covered the wound on the man’s left thigh as he was loaded into an ambulance. He talked with paramedics and seemed in good spirits.

The gun then went off a second time about 1 p.m. when police were trying to unload the weapon. The gun was pointed at the ground in a field north of Meade’s Headquarters along the west side of Taneytown Road. A PennLive reporter witnessed the second shot, which occurred as visitors to the park milled nearby.

Officers said the gun was “bad” and they had a hard time getting the rounds out of the chamber. After they forced all of the rounds out of the revolver, they secured the gun.

Other patriots nearby said they had just talked to the man who was injured and that he came by himself to the park. He was not part of any specific group, but was just there as a patriot, they said.

Dozens of self-described Patriots came to the park about noon Saturday after hearing rumors that Antifa protesters might crash the park’s events and try to desecrate memorials. Members of Antifa caused a ruckus in Harrisburg recently at an Anti-Sharia rally and one member was arrested for swinging a wooden pole with a nail attached at a police horse.

The rumors on Saturday appeared to be just that: rumors, as no Antifa members were seen at Gettysburg park Saturday.

Instead, there were dozens of men in camouflage outfits, some carrying long rifles or handguns or both, milling about the park holding large American flags. They walked outside of the perimeter of the fenced-in “official” demonstration areas, which were nearly empty all day.

A handful of members from the Real 3 % Risen group sat in one fenced area wearing Confederate flag hats and t-shirts while a lone man with a sign aligning the Confederate flag with slavery and racism sat alone in another fenced area.

The man in his 20s accidentally triggered the revolver, which was inside a leg holster, when he temporarily rested the bottom of his flag pole against the holster, according to witnesses.
Park police were nearby when the shooting occurred and officers quickly applied a tourniquet that may have saved the man’s life, said Sgt. Anna Rose, a spokeswoman with the U.S. Park Police.

A tourniquet type device covered the wound on the man’s left thigh as he was loaded into an ambulance. He talked with paramedics and seemed in good spirits.

The gun then went off a second time about 1 p.m. when police were trying to unload the weapon. The gun was pointed at the ground in a field north of Meade’s Headquarters along the west side of Taneytown Road. A PennLive reporter witnessed the second shot, which occurred as visitors to the park milled nearby.

Officers said the gun was “bad” and they had a hard time getting the rounds out of the chamber. After they forced all of the rounds out of the revolver, they secured the gun.

Other patriots nearby said they had just talked to the man who was injured and that he came by himself to the park. He was not part of any specific group, but was just there as a patriot, they said.

Dozens of self-described Patriots came to the park about noon Saturday after hearing rumors that Antifa protesters might crash the park’s events and try to desecrate memorials. Members of Antifa caused a ruckus in Harrisburg recently at an Anti-Sharia rally and one member was arrested for swinging a wooden pole with a nail attached at a police horse.

The rumors on Saturday appeared to be just that: rumors, as no Antifa members were seen at Gettysburg park Saturday.

Instead, there were dozens of men in camouflage outfits, some carrying long rifles or handguns or both, milling about the park holding large American flags. They walked outside of the perimeter of the fenced-in “official” demonstration areas, which were nearly empty all day.

A handful of members from the Real 3 % Risen group sat in one fenced area wearing Confederate flag hats and t-shirts while a lone man with a sign aligning the Confederate flag with slavery and racism sat alone in another fenced area.

The only way to kill this beast – is to starve it to death. Stop all charitable giving (this includes useless family that should be doing for themselves), pay as little in taxes as you can, vote against increased benefits or taxes – no matter how deserving, and don’t spend or keep a dime in the system that you don’t have to.

‘Use it up, wear it out, make it do, or do without.’ Put any savings in tangibles that cannot be traced! Your are either part of the solution or you are part of the problem. Self Reliance and Barter should be your highest priorities and is their greatest fear! When the system collapses and it will, their priorities will change in a hurry! Will you be ready? Swamp

Develop a personal scorched earth policy to avoid aiding the enemies!

A military strategy of burning or destroying buildings, crops, or other resources that might be of use to an invading enemy force.

I figured it was just a matter of time before it was going to be an issue for Gettysburg, with all the Confederate monuments there This is crazy! Makes my stomach churn to see this crap happening across the country. History is history. It’s what birthed this nation. I need an island or a hillside somewhere away from humanity. -k
