Alumaslider III 2020

Alumaslider III 2020 Slide Out Society Get Together

When: September 10-13, 2020

Where: Hickory Hollow Campground, 176 Big Hickory Rd. Rockwood PA 15557

Alumasliders and Airstreamers,

Weve enjoyed Stone Mt. S.P. in N.C. for two years but its time for a change.

This camp is in the Laurel Highlands of PA, just south of Somerset and south east of Pittsburgh at Hickory Hollow Campground. Those of you that ski might have heard of nearby Seven Springs but were too early for skiing this trip.

Aside from our get together there are several things happening the weekend after Labor Day in the area and thats part of the reason for selecting this area.

Mountain Craft Days, Somerset Historical Center. September 11-13, 2020. https://www.somersethistoricalcenter...raft-days.html
Founded in 1970 this festival celebrates and has working displays of many unique old-time crafts but I think better to be thought of as skills. Weve seen: Making oak shake shingles, charcoal, blacksmithing, sugar camp, flax scutching, weaving, flint knapping, pit sawing, reenactors, splitting logs into split rail fences, food, and so many more artistic and life skills. In the Historical Center they have had quilt making and many ladies practicing bobbin lace making. Try to follow that one.

Farmers and Threshers Jubilee, New Centerville RVFD. September 9-13, 2020. http://www.ncrvfc.com/jubilee.html
OK guys, like to watch steam engines on parade, a running 800 HP 55 ton Chicago Pneumatic diesel stationary engine, horse pulls, more antique farm equipment and oh yeah food and lots more. Benefits the New Centerville Rural Volunteer Fire Dept.

And saving the IMHO the must visit for last the Flight 93 Memorial in nearby Shanksville. Linda and I visited in 2007 and the memorial was a chain link memory fence, benches and a docent to host and a lone USA Flag off in the field. https://www.nps.gov/flni/index.htm

Reservations, contact Hickory Hollow Campground at 814-926-4636 info@hickoryhollowcampground.com or visit https://hickoryhollowcampground.com/

Hickory Hollow is holding a group of sites for our reservations until June but I suggest checking your calendar and reserving ASAP and consider adding a few extra days, come early or stay later and enjoy the Laurel Highlands. Linda and I have been to Mountain Craft Days and Farmers and Threshers several times while we lived in OH and our last trip was 2007. Mention Alumaslider with your reservation please.

Well make the camp casual plans on the fly, maybe group meals etc. No rally fee, share as you like and enjoy.

Gary n Linda

Reservations are on the books now. Wow...that was easy to coin a phrase. Best part is you don't pay until you check-in.

Gary asked me to share some photo's from a previous visit during the Mountain Craft Fair Days.

Folks these are pics from our visit to Mountain Craft Days in 2007. The gentleman in the bib overalls made split rail fencing. At the time he was training others how to do it. They would bring in logs and he'd eyeball the log, roll it like this or that and a carefully placed ax hit and a few wedges it splits lengthwise and then split into final sizes and that was it. Split rail fencing. The other pic is a trail scene at a booth area with a bit of haze from a cook fire.
