  • Swap Meet

    April 28th with a rain date of May 5th

    Okay boys and girls. I have a tentative location for our swap meet. As indicated earlier, this location has easy access and "out of the way". It's located in the southeast corner of Fulton County, PA, more locally in Thompson Township. We'll leave it at that. The invitation is for anyone who wants to spend the gas money but particually from the following states/counties:

    PA- Bedford, Fulton and Franklin.
    MD- Allegheny, Washington and Frederick,
    WV- Hampshire, Morgan, Berkeley and Jefferson,
    VA- Frederick and Clarke.

    These locations are in an area known as "the 4 State Region" a slogan used by channel 25 (NBC) in Hagerstown, MD because their signal covers 11 counties in these 4 states. You can literally drive from PA, thru MD, WV and into VA on US 522 in 20 minutes.

    For you guys in Howard Counties down to Baltimore have easy access by taking I-70 west to Hancock, MD. Counties west can take I-68 East from Morgantown, WV to Hancock, MD. For those north and south of the I68/I70 east/west highway can take US522 north/south, or I81 N/S to I70 and head west.

    An alternate location may be selected this week but it will be lwss than 10 minutes from Hancock, MD in WV.

    Now, the meet is not limited to the above counties so if you like to drive you are still welcome. If you would like to have details emailed send me your address to: [email protected]

    The swap meet being held on Saturday April 28 will be located in Fulton County, PA. The coordinates (if you want to Google it) is: 39, 45' 00.20"N - 78, 08' 38.5"W and you should get a aerial picture. That should put you on top of a small brown roof building. It is located between PA Rt. 655 and Timber Ridge Road about 3 miles east of Warfordsburg, PA off I-70 south of Breezwood, PA.

    This meet is open free to preppers, campers, hikers, hunters, fisherman to sell or trade your excess items with other like minded people. You can either tail gate from you vehicle or set up 1 or 2 tables. Also, I would like to encourage those who have a particular area of prepping you did that makes you proud to bring a display for other to see and maybe ask questions on how you accomplished your project. Example: small solar power station using car batteries, etc. or makeshift toilet for your BOL or other skill you an "expert" at.

    Items prohibited are booze, firearms and profanity!. Other items such as firearms accessories and ammo are okay including cross bows and standard bows/arrows. We are working on getting a Boy Scout Troop or other youth organization to provide beverages and snacks/food. Also, a liability waiver will be signed to display.

    Coming from the east take I-70 west to Hancock, MD take the first exit for Hancock (left inside lane) and drive thru town to Penna. Ave. (signal light and bank on the left) Turn right and drive into PA about 5 miles to Johnsons Mill Road and turn right. Go over 2 bridges and the meet is about another .25 mile. From Morgantown, WV and Cumberland, MD take I-68 to Hancock, take the first exit for town and US 522S, exit off 522 into Hancock which takes you under the bridge crossing the Potomac River. There is a Pizza Hut on the left. Turn left into town to the first light (PA Ave.) turn left and going into PA the same way. From the south out of WV and VA take I-81N (Berkeley and Jefferson Counties) to I-70 west at Hagerstown MD or US 522 north from the Winchester VA area through Berkeley Springs and across the Potomac River and take an immediate right. Go straight to a 4-way stop at PA Ave. turn left into PA. Now, Johnsons Mill Road is the 3rd paved road after entering PA and only goes right.

    Those to the north in PA can take I-81S from Harrisburg or Chambersburg to I-70 W or US 522 south from McConnellsburg, from points west like Bedford take US 30E to Breezewood and then I-70S to Warfordsburg and take Rt 484 to 655. And the PA Turnpike intersects at Breezwood. Now for those totally confused you can email me at [email protected] tell me where you are coming from and I'll get you directions.

    Setup time 8AM-9AM
