Paul Bunyan Forestry show (Updated Sep 2005)
« on: August 18, 2003, 11:41:08 AM »
50'th ! Paul Bunyan Forestry Show - Nelsonville, OH.  October 7-9 2005

Here is the Hocking College web site with info on the show.  

PAUL BUNYAN SHOW

But I think it's last year's stuff.  I'll look for a better link.

Here's on the Ohio Forestry website...

Paul Bunyan Show

Here's a link to an earlier tread under Travel Guide about the Paul Bunyon Show of a couple years past

Anyone going to the Paul Bunyan Show?

Mnt. Jack,
             Are you going to need a camping spot again this year?  
    If anybody is also going and are planning to camp I can save you a spot, as some years the camp grounds fill up very quick.  Tom

Tom,

I was thinking about bringing the family (two young kids) and staying in a hotel. Is there nearby decent lodging?

Does it sell out quickly too?

Any specific place/hotels to recommend?

Nelsonville is not very big.  There are no large towns close to it.  If you go to Yahoo and key in "Nelsonville, oh" in the search function it'll come up with a page of hotels in the Nelsonville area.

The one time we went there we staid in some small town west of there.  I cant even remember the name of town.

Greg,
       There is only one motel @ Nelsonville and it usually is filled up the Monday after P. B. for the next year. Try Athens , Ohio,it's about 15 miles east .You need to make up your mind soon as they might fill up too.The town of Logan is to the west I don't know if it has any motels.   Tom

Thanks Tom,

I'll be in Athens on other business, and there looks to be several different lodging options there.

Looks to be only 15 miles away from Nelsonville.

Hillbilly,

Thanks,

 Dugsaws
Yes I'm taking my little ones .They have went every year since they were born. My 2 youngins are 3 and 5 years old. There are alot of things to do for them.There is an old frontier village on campus you can visit. A steam train goes from the show into Nelsonville  and back.There is always someone at just about every chainsaw booth carving pieces of logs into sculptures all day long. There is a Skit type  lumberjack show that is funny  to watch  just don't sit too  close to the pond unless you would like to get wet and cool off. Then there is the real lumberjack contests like you see on TV  . Most of the food vendors have good food too ;D  . If your kids like to watch equipment operate like mine do they won't be dissappointed                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           The selection of forestry related equipment is unbelievable . the equipment ranges from what a workingman can buy to what ever your bank account can afford.My wife only allows me to have a certain amount of money when we go there .That way I usually can't buy anything that won't fit in the bed of my truck.But I wonder if she would notice that on the way back a bandmill mysteriously got tangled up on my trailer hitch ???.


 I almost forgot that there are some booths that sell craft type items also .

Mary and I just talked about it again this morning.  Still not 100% decided to go.  Sure would like to.  We about visited out at the Mid-West show and really behind in our sawing.

We took the long way home instead of the interstate and spotted on hard maple turning orange (our favorite color  ;D) and then noted a bunch more about ready to turn.  Last time we were at the PB show,  about half the trees were turning their fall colors - a few days or week later and they'd been something.

Here is a couple of pictures I got the last time we were there.



We got there early!  I think it was the day we left.

Hey Bibby ,

Dugsaws and I made it back. It was a little muddy but that didn't dampen the want to buy alot of things.I took some pics but haven't had the time to get them posted yet . I will get them on tomorrow.  We got to meet Sawmill John and  Don Cadwell at the Mobile Dimension booth. I talked to the guysat the Wooodmizer booth but can't remember their names. The LT-70 with Cat power was awesome. I wouldn't want to  be    a tailman if the operator got serious about sawin wood.  I got action pics ofthat mill and the Mobile Dimension.

Looks like a great opportunity to set up some kind of meeting place like we did at the Wood-Mizer 20'th anniversary party year before last. (How time flies!)

Could be the one place where all the major Forestry Forum sponsors have an exhibit.  Good time to toast them.  Maybe get them all together for a group picture.

Its a LOOOONG ways from L.A.  Almost clear across the country. You probably can recognize the location of the great lakes on a U.S. map?  Just east of most of the lakes and south.

2004 Show is coming up!

Does anyone have information on camping at or near the show site?  I know there is a state park about 20 miles away but was hoping there might be something closer where some of the forum members stay.

Any information would be appreciated.

When we were there a bunch of years back,  there were bunches and bunches of people camping right there at the show.  You had to park about a mile from the show grounds and walk past the campers to get to the gate.   I don't know how you reserve a place there.  Maybe it tells something on the web site.???

I could not find anything on the web site, maybe I did not know where to look.  I thought maybe someone here had camped there before and could tell us who to contact concerning reservations.

beenthere,  that looks like the same link to the Ohio Forestry info that's posted on the first post of this topic.

Here is a link to some camping info on the Hocking College web site - but I don't think it's the camping I seen when at Paul Bunyon back in 01.

Jeffb,dewood,
     I have camped at the Baul Bunyan Show for the last 15-18 years .I have been saving MNT. Jack a place for the last 3 years.My friends say Jack is my "internet date".  
    I could save some more sites (it's first come first served) if someone wanted me to.We usually go to PB  on wed. or thursday. We can talk more about it as the time gets nearer. PB officals were talking about not having camping this year ,but I think that was because of the shootout that was to be there.  Tom

Mary and I sure are planning to attend this year.  BUT we've said we were going to make it back the last two years also and something has came up.

One thing to consider about attending this show... Pepair for mud in case it rains!

The show is held out in a hay field below the college.  There is very little paved parking and it goes fast in the morning.  The main parking area is in other hay fields about a mile from the show area.  

I think there is another option of parking in town and taking the train over to the show area.  I think it ran about every half-hour.

50'th ! Paul Bunyan Forestry Show - Nelsonville, OH.  October 7-9 2005


The Paul Bunyan show is one of best forestry shows Ive ever attended.  Weve made a lot of post with lots of info on the show. 

I have updated the links to the Nelsonville Hocking College web site and the Ohio Forestry web site the first post on this thread.

Here is another link to a thread of posts from last years Paul Bunyan show.

A lot of Forestry Forum members gather there.  Mary and I hope we can make it again this fall.

I'd sure love to come back to the Paul bunyan show this year but just cant make it.  SAW MILLER , i imagine before the show gets here, one of the sponsors will be designated as this years Forestry Forum meeting spot. Last year the offical spot was logrite tools, but you will find forum members at any of the other sponsors.  Tell that bibbyman to where his forum hat to the show instead of the wood-mizer hat. Everybody at wood-mizer already knows him anyways. :D

Maybe I could be like those race car drivers after they win a race,  I could wear the hats of all the sponsors by switching every few seconds - just for photo ops... :D

The Paul Bunyan show is always on our list but we've only been able to attend two in the past 5-6 years.  We've just got a mountain of logs in this week and expect more.  We are working on a building extension and are planning to attend the Midwest Forest Ind show comeing up in a week or two.  LOTS to do!!

The cost of the tickets are on the small end of the list of costs involved.

There is the 18 hours of driving one way that we'd spread over a night on the way getting there and another getting back.  Then we'd be there for two days so that's 4 days so far. 

Then it takes Mary a day to get ready and take enough "stuff" to homestead in Alaska.  Then anther day when we get back to unload, unwind and get back into work mode again. 

So thatd be 6 days out of work with 4 nights in a motel room and eating in restaurants not to mention $2-300.00 in gas.  Money going out, none coming in. :-\
