2016 Paul Bunyon Show in Ohio. Who's going ?
« on: September 06, 2016, 10:22:07 am »
 Well it's almost that time of the year for the Paul Bunyon Forestry Show in Ohio on Oct 7-9 2016.

 I was just wondering who is planning on attending this year ? It's a good time to meet up with fellow FF members and vendors  . I'm fortunate that its only 35 min to the west of me,  so just about in my back yard . I'm planning on being there on Saturday

We'll be going on Saturday as well. We're putting in a wood stove this year and I hope there'll be some vendors with some of the odds and ends we haven't bought yet like the hearth tools.

For those who are interested in any thing concerning forestry this the place .Everything to can imagine from giant tub grinders to cross cut saws .Chippers that can swallow a 3 feet diameter tree in short order. Band saw mills,circle saw mills  chainsaw mills .Firewood processors   that can spit out bundled wood in one fell swoop .

I can't make it this year, too busy .Perhaps some day I can run in the Ohio championship hot saws once again. You just never know about these things . :)

I am planning to be there Friday and Saturday. I really enjoyed it last year and learned a lot from Brian Bond in the classes he offered. I plan to take a couple of the classes this year as well. We will also be able to visit with our daughter since she is working on her PhD at Ohio State. I hope to meet some FF members while I am there.

Take the time and go!!! I have never been to the one in OH,  ;D but go to the one in Maine. I try to go both days. One to look at the logging equipment and one to look at the sawmills.
The 1000hp chipper is there each year. Really anything to do with wood is there and moving too.

  My wife and I will be there Friday. I've always wanted to go to this show but the school year calender kept my wife from getting time off. Now she's retired we have a little more freedom that way. Got a motel room reserved in Cambridge for Thursday night. We'll see the show on Friday and then go on to our daughter's in Grove City to visit them for a few days.        Depending on what the girls are planning on doing Saturday, I might get back for some of that day, too. Son-in-Law grew up in Cambridge, and his Mom still lives there. He might want to check up on her and then see the show in the afternoon??? Give my grandson something to talk about in school Monday, too.

Well, life has got in the way for me. I had my stuff in the truck already last night. I laid down about 9:00 and within 10 minutes was in severe pain in my lower left abdomen. Within an hour I was throwing up and in really bad pain. Had no idea what it was. Tried to walk tried to so what ever. 4 this morning I woke up Tammy and asked if my insurance was still in effect, she said yes, so I said I need to have you take me to the hospital. I have to think I am dieing before saying that so she knew I was serious.   Turns out to be a kidney stone and an infection among other things. My blood pressure was 235 over 105 when I got there from the pain. 

I'm home now, blood pressure at 130 over 75, heavily medicated waiting for the stone to pass. Sure was looking forward to seeing old friends and meeting new, but I thank heavens that this happened a few hours before I was to leave, and not on the road.

Jeff, I sure hope you get feeling better real soon. I've missed the show for past 4 years being on the mend from my bout with colorectal cancer. I feel your pain buddy. Just get better and shoot for next year.
I've only ever met one FF member so I'm really looking forward to meeting some but not sure how I'll know one. I'll be wearing a green DblTree Belgians T-shirt so if any members spot me please speak up.
It's gonna be a good time with good weather Friday.

Not lucky you got them,but as you said lucky you was not at the show. That is too bad you are going to miss the show.

We went today and it was both more and less than I hoped. Overall, it wasn't as helpful to us as we thought because it's so heavily geared towards production/commercial-scale wood processing and we're anything but. There were nearly no products that had any applicability to what we do. On the other hand, there was lots of safety equipment on hand so it enabled us to try a bunch of things on. My wife got full-wrap chaps that fit better than the ones we could get locally and I found a pair of gloves that actually fit (which is a miracle, I have HUGE hands). Sadly, the chainsaw cut-resistant boots couldn't fit my orthotic insoles, so I wasn't able to go home with a set. However, being able to try them all there saved me a heck of lot of money in shipping back and forth.

I'm honestly not sure if we'll go again. Without much equipment for the homestead-scale logger, there's not much to justify the trip out there. I guess maybe if we end up looking for PPE again we might go back.
