Woodsmen Carnival Rally..Aug 5-7, 2011

We left August 3rd, for a trip across the USA. We packed up and headed for Austin, Potter County, Pa. for a 5 day Unit Rally. We arrived at Austin Campground and setup and met fellow Airstreamers, Bates, Davis, Landvaters, Olshefski's, Jacobs, Linda Bell(who lives 2 blocks from camp) and Guests too, Fowlers from New York, Loudens from Holtwood, Pa., and Glouners from Naples ,Fl. What a fun bunch.
We had a few campfires, toured the area and went to the Woodsmen Show at Cherry Springs State Park. On sat it drizzled all day and made for a wet time. But we enjoyed the Lumber Jack Show and watched the chain saw carvers in action. Even in the rain the place was full and well attended. The food vendors kept us full too, Pulled Bar-B-Q Pork, curly fries, just to name a few. Some of the pictures I took came out gray due to the dark skies all day. All the carvings were for sale too, great prices too.
We even went out to the Wharton Store for Ice Cream and bought some block cheese cut off the round roll with a big knife. We even went next door to the hotel for the Famous "Bonnie Burgers" They were the best! We watch the Pocono 500 while eating. The hotel had Dollar Bills autographed and stapled everywhere, I was told over 4,000 are on the walls.
We also took a side trip to the Austin Dam to see the destruction caused back in 1911 and 78 lives were lost. We also saw a lot of deer grazing along the wood line. We had a Great Rally and everyone had a Great Time, Thanks to all who came. Click for pictures...
