I arrive Friday evening, hopefully not much later than 7pm, staying at Marriott 6 miles south, for Fri and Sat, returning Sunday evening.
Excited.... So much so I figured out how to put my Lee in a Tree picture into APUG.

I apologize. It has been pointed out that I posted more information about you than some people would like to have on the internet. There was still time for the “edit” feature to function so I stripped you of your identity. Sorry.

As in trespassing ...

Is it part of the park now, or still private property?

Analog chimping? :) Looking forward to meeting you and the other new folks, and catching up with the regulars.

I carried all nine of mine (not at the same time)in a Gerry kid pack while I had cameras hanging on my neck and a fly rod in my hand. I think you capable of figuring out haow to pack yours and a camera(tho it may not be a LF)
My parents carried me in a Gerry pack. :) The carriers I have all put him in front. I haven't found one I like that can go on my back. Once I can pick one, then I'll be ok. I'm looking forward to when he's big enough to help carry. :)

I highly recommend the Emmaljunga Duo Combi stroller. It has a large metal basket below, and the top is switchable between a basinette and a seat, good from birth until they don't want it anymore. The basket below will hold a good sized diaper bag and a good sized camera bag at the same time. I'd carry two of the large brown paper grocery bags under the basinette. The whole load is off your feet and you can leave baby sleeping safely in the basinette while you shoot. Ours is now on its 6th or 7th child after our two used it, and we still see it around town in good shape after 19 years of constant duty. The cloth covers come off for washing, and it can fold down remarkably small to fit in a car trunk. Also has good sized (6-8") wheels with soft rubber tires on metal spoked wheels. One tough and versatile buggy, but not cheap. I also had a Kelty backpack child carrier, but would take the Emmaljunga over that 99% of the time.

Oh, just so you're prepared ... by the time he's old enough to carry your cameras, he'll be loaded down with his own cameras and asking you for your film and asking to borrow the lens you're using.

P.S. but it's worth it. :)

From what I can tell the paper mill is part of the park. There is even a plaque showing the original structure and giving some history of the mill. The machine was left in place for "interpretation."
However, there is a fence between the trail and the machine, but there is no lock on the gate.

Part of the park, just off the tow path.

I'm planning on just doing the round trip on Sat, but I may bring stuff with me just in case. I haven't told my neighbor, yet, so I hope he's around this weekend to let my pack out. I probably won't be going out and shooting - just around your pond. I haven't quite figured out the logistics of carrying gear and baby much less shooting while carrying him.
But I'm looking forward to seeing whoever's there and having adult conversations! Or as adult as they get anyway. :)

You are welcome to use my baby jogger while you are here if that would help.

Last time they were only buying, apparently from a want list, 2 guys with laptops. Will you be coming for that camera show? I might come over for a browse if I know which day you'd come. Maybe grab lunch.

I would normally love to, Lee... Alas that weekend is going to be my final opportunity to get things ready for a workshop the following weekend.


I was at this event last year around the same time and while KEH was only buying there were others there selling - I got a hell of a deal on my Toyo 45AII. Never know what you might find!

Yes, I've gotten some great deals there as well, and also had to pass up a number of great deals simply for lack of cash. I'll likely go over again this time. Ownership of the show has transferred to Abraham. He's trying to revitalize it a bit, and I want to support it so that it continues.

You are both welcome to camp out here that weekend if you change your mind Shawn or Lee if you just want to come over and talk. Mean while back to this weekend's event.

Earlier I mentioned that Peter Spangenberg would bring an Adams retouching machine for us to see. That reminded me that I have a much less sophisticated Burke & James retouching stand that we can see to compare with the Adams.

Latest weather has it clearing up by the weekend. It rained a lot today (Tuesday) and is supposed to Thursday. That should mean good water flow at the falls, possibly new trees falling to act as props.

Still wondering when several people will be arriving.

Thanks John. I'll contact you off this thread about the camera show weekend. Too early to make specific plans yet.

Jeff,

A welcome first post to Apug.

Sorry your first visit will be short. At this point (Wed. AM) I think people will be going to Blue Hen and Buttermilk falls from daybreak on. I have suggested we cancel the 10 AM meet at our house. Instead I suggested people go to the Richfield Family Restaurant for brunch. They are located about a mile west of the Blue Hen parking lot across the street from the Hampton Inn on Brecksville Rd., near the OH Turnpike entrance.

If people go to the restaurant when they feel like it eventually all players will get there, either arriving there as there first effort of the day or arriving after their interest in the falls. The time spent eating may absorb the difference in schedules.

Happy to add another name to the attendees list. I just received a PM from Steve S, “Scherbis” on the Midwest Large Format Asylum saying that he will join us. I hope to hear by return email when he will arrive and whether he will be camping or staying at a motel.

As of Thursday morning Weather.com says it is going to be a pretty good weekend in Bath, Ohio.

Friday: Widely scattered showers early. Chance of rain 30%. Partly cloudy, high 70 degrees F, low 50 degrees F.

Saturday: Mostly sun then clouds. Chance of rain 0 %. High 62, low 45.

Sunday: Mostly cloudy. Chance of rain 10 %. High 64, low 54.

I think it will be tolerable.

There has been a lot of rain this week so plan on mud, wet grass and bush in the woods.

John
