We're Meeting Up In Allentown!

All Corner Members are invited to attend the Corner Meetup for the Allentown/Philadelphia PA area!

When: May 11-15, 2011 (Come for 1, 2, 3, 4, or all 5 days!)

Your Hosts: Me, Mike Dorn (Strutter) and Carl Chalupa (Spicoli)

Plan your arrival time for around 12:00 Noon on Wednesday, May 11th. For those that are flying in, you should book your flight into the Lehigh Valley International (ABE) Airport. (Please email or private message your flight info to me so I can keep track of the arrivals.) Car rentals are available at the airport. Once I have an idea of how many are attending and staying over, I will look into a group rate at the hotels in the Allentown area and post the information ASAP so you can book your rooms.

The Agenda:

Day 1: Wednesday, May 11 – Arrival and get acquainted afternoon, possibly some nighttime/late day cemetery photography. For those who do not wish to do a cemetery walk, local towns of Bethlehem, Allentown, Easton are within a few minutes driving distance for photography, shopping, or lots of eateries/clubs.

Day 2: Thursday, May 12 (Leave Allentown at 8AM) - Centrailia Pennsylvania - the ghost town of PA! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Centralia,_Pennsylvania or http://www.offroaders.com/album/centralia/maps.htm – I will check access to the area again in early April of 2011. If we are unable to visit the area, an alternate destination will be planned and announced. Alternate day trips: New York City, Gettysburg, PA, Jim Thorpe, PA or New Hope, PA if we are unable to visit Centralia. If wanted, some nighttime/late day cemetery photography. For those who do not wish to do a cemetery walk, local towns of Bethlehem, Allentown, Easton are within a few minutes driving distance for photography, shopping, or lots of eateries/clubs.

Thursday night - "Exit 22" show (Strutter's band) at Holiday Inn Breinigsville. Time to be announced.

Day 3: Friday, May 13 - (Leave for Philadelphia at 8AM) – First stop: Eastern State Penitentiary! http://www.easternstate.org/ See where Al Capone spent 8 years of jail time and walk the cell blocks of history. Watch out for the ghost cats!! Then we’re off to Graffiti Alley in Philadelphia, PA. http://www.flickr.com/photos/reverse...th/5084969523/ - Located at the dock area of Philadelphia – great for HDR and portrait photography.

Day 4: Saturday, May 14 – Open for group discussion/planning. Evening – Local pub/show?

Day 5: Sunday, May 15 – Departure for home.

Re: We're Meeting Up In Allentown!

Now this really sounds like a blast! I will have to check my schedule and see what I might arrange. With my part-time contract (I provide technology and software support and training for a local area school board) it may be a last minute decision on my part. I've driven through Pennsylvania a few times in the last couple of years - beautiful country. And the stops you guys have in mind would be awesome.

Re: We're Meeting Up In Allentown!

I should be able to pop in here and there. Maybe spend a full day one day. We'll have to see a little closer to it. But it sounds fun and since I'm right here in the area it's convenient too

Re: We're Meeting Up In Allentown!

I'm in, would be a great getaway.

TJ, do I need to get a taxi to the hotel or would someone be available to pick me up from the airport? I don't see a point of me getting a rental since most of us will be following the agenda. If I can carpool with someone else I'll be more than happy to pitch in for the rental and/or gas.

Scott, when you have your flight info email it to me. Someone will be there to pick you up! Carl's coming in about noon on Wednesday so see if you get a flight in around that time, we can work out a car rental then too since they are right at the airport.

Centrailia? You should be able to find lots from there. Every time I've been up there, people are walking around.

Several cemeteries right in Allentown date back to the 1800's and they are within short driving distance of each other. I'll map out a few with mausoleums and statues. The cemetery with "Mrs. Richards" isn't in Allentown but is not far from here. (Not a big cemetery though.)
