Let me say that I'm still so MAD that Penn State lost to OSU that I could spit nails and wire and insulators and probably a whole Woodmizer!!!

I can think of 4 active posters here from PA.  For a long time I was the lone east coast guy.  We also have a couple of registered PA guys who don't post much.  

Den, did you go to Penn State, or just a big supporter?  I was there during the glory days of 2 undefeated seasons, and never a #1.  President Nixon awarded Texas as the best in the nation, Penn State as best in the East.  Joe Paterno sent back the award.

Ohio State went about as expected.  Looks like Purdue took some pages from our defensive scheme.

Michigan groundskeepers should take a course at Penn State on turf management.  One of the best in the country.

I'm not sure this statistic is still valid, but 1 out of every 4 meterologists are Penn State grads.

Never under estimate the power of stupid people in large groups.

Ron,
My wife and I both went to Penn State and then stayed in State College for another 10 years. Growth of that area got crazy and we got out.
When we lived there, we hated Penn State football because of the traffic. We passed Beaver Stadium everyday. During home games, we had to adjust work, shopping, visiting friends, everything that involved travel. I like it much better from 50 miles away!

I live in Bellefonte, about ten miles away from Penn State.  Don't venture very far from home during those home football games due to the traffic.  Bowling and brew was out of the question last night because of the game  >:(    I don't know where everyone else gets their logs, but I've been really busy the past week and a half due to the freak snowfall when all of the leaves were still on the trees.  What a pile of red oak logs!  As soon as the part comes in for my engine I'll be making lots of sawdust  8)

Hey, I came from Penn too !  Well-----I went there once and I'm not there now so I must have come from Pennsylvania.

Went to Manor Hill where some of my wife's ancestors (Ewing) are buried.  Ever hear of the Ewing Trail?  Their old family home is still standing near the cemetery.  My wife recently inherited a quilt that came from the house over 100 years ago.

Saw a lot of history on that trip and some beautiful streams and forests and barns.

You guys have a nice state.

Yes, a nice state. I was from there once when I lived in Warren, PA  on the Allegheny National Forest.

The Kinzua Dam and the Allegheny Reservoir provide some excellent water based recreation.

It is a pretty State. I met an old, decrepit, scruffy forester type sawmiller once as I passed through there.  He was a pretty fine fellow and his name was Ron too. :-/ :-)

And you will notice that is a Penn State T-shirt.   ;D

Manor Hill looks to be in the middle of nowhere.  I've been through parts of that area, especially around Huntingdon.

Ron W.

We had a hard time finding Manor Hill,  we knew the general area and finally knew someone who knew where it was.  Found the cemetery just before dark.  We had to go to Huntingdon to get a motel and then back to Manor Hill the next morning.  The distande wasn so great as the crow flies but the little roads wound all over the country.  We really enjoyed it. Never saw a map with Manor Hill on it.  Now I look stuff up on topozone.com.

Ron ,
Yeah I was talking about Spartansburg. Not many towns that I can think of have a sawmill on Main Street.

The little lake in the middle of town was used to float the logs out of land that it covers.

   I drove through PA heading from WV to Rochester NY on a project years several ago and was surprised at how many dead deer I saw along the Interstate and decided they must a lot more deer in PA than we do here in WV then I realized it was probably that the economy was better in PA and they left them where they hit them while we took them home and ate them. :D
