    More location information on the event Site QTH:

    From Interstate 80 in in Pennsylvania, Take exit 64
    Head South on PA route 66 to the Village Limestone PA (about 4 miles)

    Go to Piney Creek Road, also known as Tr-527, and it make come up as Buzzard Road. This is adjacent to the small white Church "Limestone Baptist"
    Turn Right. This is not the same turn as the Penn Wood Campground entrance, but a back way in!
    All of these road names are valid depending upon which data base you employ! (Did I mention this is Appalachia?)

    I'll put up a ton of signs. Hopefully most folks will see them all-

    Go about 1.1 Miles. You will see a large meadow on your left. There will be a well marked break in the curb where you turn in.

    The GPS Coordinates for this entrance is:

    N 41˚ 7.683'
    W 79˚ 20.147'
    You can view the area with Google Earth pretty easily...

    Cheers and 73
