In Pennsylvannia ? I will be in Ridgway at the Rendezvous and need some help
In Ridgway PA, Feb 16th to 23rd is the Rendezvous! THE Chainsaw Carvers Rendezvous !!! It is - from all I hear - a huge chainsaw carvers event, where they spend the first few days creating wood master pieces with a chainsaw. On the second to last day the pieces are judged, and on the final day they are judged.
Last summer at the NYS Fair I met, and photographed, Dennis Beach - a world champion carver! He creates some great sculptures; not just bears and eagles - but flamingos, dogs, benches with horses and log cabins, and the list is as long as his imagination!
While I have a tentative CouchSurfer to stay with (haven't heard from lately though) - I NEED a back up plan and travel arrangements.
If it goes as I hope with the surfer I've been in touch with previously, I will only need two rides daily from the St Marys / Kersey area to Ridgway.
If the plan falls apart I'll need a place to crash for the duration of the Rendezvous. I'm not to picky - a floor is fine, just as long as I'm not sleeping in the cold, February isn't a god time of year for camping in PA, lol.
IF you can help or make suggestions (very low budget) PLEASE do so.
I will be photographing the events to make travel money to continue my project (a look at my profile will explain the project).
Thank you in advance for your help.
