In Pennsylvannia ? I will be in Ridgway at the Rendezvous and need some help
Posted February 6th, 2013 - 8:51 pm by from Syracuse, United States (Permalink)
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.

Smile,
Sue
