    Centralia PA June 22nd hunt

    How about meeting in Byrnesville at the cemetary. It's right before you get into Centralia on the left (the large cemetary). Assuming most of us are heading there from the south side.

    Carpooling??

    My wife's from Centralia. When we were dating in the late 70's her father dug an old tombstone in their back yard (a good distance from the cemertaries). Can't remember the details of the stone or what ever happened to it. Nothing else was found.
    She lived on the main street going toward Mt. Carmel on the north side, about two blocks down from the main cross road.
    Just be careful near the exsisting cemetaries. There are a lot of open holes on that side of the hill that are still burning. Also the cemetaries are still being used.

    the Cemeteries are in centralia not Byrnesville
    if comming From ashland, you now need to make the right into
    Byrnesville & follow the road to the Top of Centralia.
    because of Road Subsidence, Melting & High thick Smoke Problems.

    There is a Monument in Byrnesville but not a cemetery.

    When I was last up (Looks like April of '05) I ran into
    the Local Township policeman between the Ball Diamond & the Cemetery.
    He pointed out the ballfield to me & said there was no Problem with detecting
    he was taking License plate Numbers of Unattended Vehicles because the woods
    are Private property & They were 4 Wheeling. Not sure if they receive Fines in the mail,
    Warnings or ? But you wouldn't want to leave your
    Vehicle Completley out of sight up there.
    still a good meeting spot.

    Sight of Former Church, & Possable Convent ? I Believe.

    As far as Legalities ? Technically it was bought out by the fed,
    But unless things have changed, the Police don't care. or at least Didn't.


    I'm still open for the 22,
    But won't say definately till 17 or 19 depending on how soon
    I see a Believable Weather Report.
    My detector don't like rain.

    As far as I know the 22nd would be good for me. Sure would be nice to put a face to the name. I'd be O.K. with 9 a.m. just not certain where we will be meeting. I'll be be coming on RT 61 from the Reading area.

    Talked to my brother in Red Hill and gonna visit him Saturday and swing by to meet yun's on Sunday on my way back to the Burg. I'm not sure where the meet location is either....but ...how can you miss a bunch of folks with detectors?

    Hope to see ya'll.
    Al

    I sure hope it aint this 90+ degrees crap...I'll melt. A pleasant 80 would be great.

    I guess we are meeting (not digging) at the cemetary area aon the way into town on 61. Sounds like we have a decent number of people.
    Chris, did you get people emailing you.
