GettysburgPAX: Wrapup & Pics on pg. 14

Call it what you want: CentralPAx, a meet-up, a miniPAX, a shindig, or a hootenany.

I understand that there are some fine fellow from around the WV, PA, MD, VA. I think that we should get together and love on some history. I'm going to be in Gettysburg, PA for some touristy stuff in a couple of weeks, so this seems like a good time.

WHERE IS IT?
Gettysburg, PA

We will start the day off with a tour of the park, starting at the new visitor's center. Here is how you get there:
The visitor center is located between the Baltimore Pike (Route 97) and Taneytown Road (State Rt. 134). From North or South, follow US 15 to Gettysburg and watch for signs to direct you to the National Park Service Visitor Center, which are near the exit at Rt. 97. Go north on Route 97 and look for the visitor center entrance, which will be on your left at the stoplight. From East or West, drive into Gettysburg on US Rt. 30, turn South on Baltimore Street (Rt. 97), and follow signs to the entrance of the visitor center, which will be on your right at the stoplight.
Here is a link to a good map of the battlefield and town of Gettysburg. The visitor center is center/bottom/right.

WHEN IS IT?
Saturday, June 21st, 2008


WHAT WOULD WE DO?
We can do some sightseeing around the town and battlefield.

I thought it would also be cool if we go to dinner. There is a cool era style inn that would be neat to go to.
www.dobbinhouse.com
They offer fine and casual dining, i figure we just do casual. Unless of course you guys want to fancy it up for some reason.

It would also be cool to wrap up the day with a ghost tour.
http://www.ghostsofgettysburg.com/
These people reportedly have a very good reputation and have been voted the #1 ghost tour in the country (for whatever that is worth). They offer tours to different areas, so we would have to decide which one to take, if that is something we want to do.


WHO IS GOING?
CrackedLens + wife
DrZiplock + lady friend
cadmunky + wife (d3thmommy for all you xbox live peeps)
NotACrook

If you dudes want to meet up and do some cool history stuff together, you are more than welcome. Everybody come, everybody have fun.

    And she replied with "Since when do you have a British boyfriend?"
