If it's 3 hours from Harrisburg, then it's more like 6 hours from Pittsburgh, unless there's a shortcut that doesn't use the pike. I'll check the maps, but I might be interested. Don't go by me for dates, but I know I'm already booked for most of June.
edit - checked the maps and it looks like about 5 hours from where I am (out in the country, btw, not quite next to a highway).

I'd be interested, as well.
Any more I seem to have trouble planning more than a few weeks ahead, but it's at least a possibility. I'll keep an eye on this thread.
Are there any old farm buildings to shoot? I might make it down from SE Mass.....
Would you accept an old girl from Maryland, we kind of think of ourselves as Mid-Atlantic. It sounds great, I will keep subscribed to this thread.

Full service cottage at Oquaga Creek State Park
A few years ago we stayed in a very large cottage at Oquaga Creek State Park,
off Route 17 near Deposit NY. As rentals go, this is one deluxe accomodation!
This modern A-frame sleeps 8, is insulated, has electric heat, hot and cold water,
1.5 baths and a fully-equipped kitchen. You need bring only bedding and towels.
The only cottage there, it's quite secluded, set apart from all other campsites.
Located in a pretty part of New York State, we found lots to do and see nearby.
The current rate is $150/night, $650/week; IIRC weekly only in peak season.
For availability and further information: Reserveamerica.

Letchworth state park in central NY near the PA border is studded with cabins for rent, has a four star hotel and restaurant and has some of the most beautiful scenery in the state. See the pictures in my gallery taken there in our visits over the years.
The gorge there is nearly a mile across and up to 500 or more feet deep.
Looks like there might be some interest! The reason I thought the area(NC PA) would be good is that it is central to most of NY & PA. Heck we are only 3hrs from Buffalo & less then 5 hrs form Toronto! The area I'm sugesting is mostly mountains. Not many old farm buildings. Lots of old hunting camps & beautiful scenery. There are a few old towns scattered throughout the area. One is Wellsboro, PA. http://www.wellsboropa.com Also, there is the PA Grand Canyon which Pine Creek runs through.
Now this area is about 45 minutes from the Kettle Creek area I suggested in my 1st post. The Wellsboro area is also loaded with Cabins, B&B's, Motels, & campgrounds.
After thinking about it I think the Wellsboro area is a better choice because there are more options for lodging & food.
So, how do we pick an area to try to hold this event?
Oh, I agree that Letchworth state park is beautiful & would be a great place to hold it. Also over near Watkins Glen area would be another great location. Either of these 2 areas would have more old farms to photograph.
Since you've volunteered to organize, my suggestion is that you choose an area you're familiar with, so you can direct or escort people to nice photographic locations. I know I would appreciate that. I hope this works out, I'm looking forward to getting out in warmer weather, and seeing some new places.
Thanks for giving me the heads up. I'm interested as well, but of course schedule permitting. You know I've been wanting to visit northern PA for a while now. Sounds great.
