At Chapel Ridge It Starts at a Young Age In the gentle rolling hills of southern Adams County Pa you can find Chapel Ridge Farms. Chapel Ridge Farms is home to 100% naturally grown beef, what do we mean by 100% naturally grown.

gettysburg pa: Gettysburg Through the Eyes of Gettysburg Gerry - 08/26/11 02:46 PM
Gettysburg Through the Eyes of Gettysburg Gerry I have been coming to Gettysburg for as long as I can remember, from when I was a young boy working on a dairy farm on through to today. I have built my Gettysburg world around the quaint historic town of Gettysburg Pa. One thing that I have never taken for granted is the sacrifice that took place here, the complete and ultimate dedication to a cause from both sides.
One thing that I love is that Gettysburg is in a state of change, while most everybody who lives and works here in … (3 comments)

Take a Walk w/Gettysburg Gerry-Gen.G.G. Meade  HQ During 3 days in July in the summer of 1863 Gen. George Meade choose the little farmhouse of Lydia Leister to call home. Little did he know it would within those walls that the future of our country would be determined. The Leister farmhouse is a small two room home on the Tanyetown Rd just south of Gettysburg Pa. The choice was a contrast to the HQ's of Gen R.E. Lee on the Chambersburg Rd, west of Gettysburg Pa.
   The small home was positioned just inside the curve of the famous fishook … (4 comments)

Ragged Edge in Gettysburg Pa Has Got the Talent On my constant journey to introduce the rest of America to Gettysburg Pa I have been frequenting some of the local coffee shops, and drinking establishments to highlight what Gettysburg after dark has to offer. While we are relatively small little burg, we do have a pretty cool night life that has some hidden gems.  One of those gems that sparkles brightly in the summer sun is the Ragged Edge Coffee shop in downtown Gettysburg.  It started as a way to highlight the hidden yet accomplished talent the lurks here, but turned … (6 comments)

gettysburg pa: July 4th Weekend at the Cashtown Inn - 07/04/11 07:04 AM
July 4th Weekend at the Cashtown Inn Every year at this time the quiet hills of Cashtown Pa just outside of Gettysburg are engulfed in the cadence of Fife & Drum. It has become tradition for  Confederate reenactors to inhabit the Inn during the anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg and fill the night air with the sounds of 1863. The historic Cashtown Inn built in 1797 was originally built as a stage stop and began serving the southern Pa area as an Inn and Tavern in 1815. The Inn got it's name from the requirement of first Innkeeper Peter Mack … (0 comments)

gettysburg pa: Gettysburg is Worthy, Gettysburg is Worthy of ActiveRain - 06/30/11 04:09 PM
Gettysburg is Worthy, Gettysburg is Worthy I actually think this particular challenge is interesting.  What building, place, would be worthy of hosting the 5th anniversary of Active Rain. To start things off with no slight intended to the people of Gettysburg, I think a company such as Activerain might be a bit confusing to Gettysburg Pa. Activerain builds, thrives,and exists on the principal of Internet technology, and while Gettysburg is alot of things, technology forward is not a label one could apply. So lets put Gettysburg where it is most comfortable, in the realm of history. I mean really, when one … (5 comments)

gettysburg pa: Does the Weather Affect Your Showing Schedule? - 05/20/11 06:50 AM
Does the Weather Affect Your Showing Schedule? Yesterday I was out enjoying a rare day of somewhat sunlight here in Gettysburg Pa. You see we here in Gettysburg have been experiencing a major amount of rain, so this rare brief  time slot when there was some sunshine I headed out to the Gettysburg Battlefield. There are many reasons why someone would want to move to Gettysburg, Pa, but I don't believe any are as compelling as being able to take some time, pretty much whenever you want, to go spend some time on Gettysburg Battlefield. So as you can see, I … (6 comments)

gettysburg pa: Sometimes I am Such an Idiot - 05/07/11 02:52 PM
Sometimes I am Such an Idiot Gotta admit that sometimes the things that I do simply amaze me. I work pretty diligently on my Internet presence and know that I have had direct success from my blogging here on AR in closing a transaction. Most times when I enter a contest it gives me a kick in the ass, one that is usually needed. Some time back when Bob introduced me to the concept of Localism I made it a point to "adopt" a few neighborhoods in my area and have been diligently posting on them long after the contest ended. … (8 comments)

Gettysburg Pa takes a Hike This morning I set out at a brisk 6:00am to help co-ordinate an annual event for the Rick & Sally Myers Animal Shelter of Gettysburg Adams County Pa.

Are You a Big Fish in a Little Pond, or a Little Fish in a Big Pond

I was having a conversation about the Gettysburg Pa real estate market the other day. We were discussing the difference in markets in a small geographic area such as southern central Pa. Gettysburg, which a small rural community, including it's surrounding area, is however only a 1 1/2 hours from the Pa state capitol Harrisburg.

It dawned on me that Gettysburg is somewhat of a anomaly, from the center of the borough within 1 1/2 hours south is Baltimore, 1 1/2 … (8 comments)

Building a Bamboo Bike Yeah Really Tucked away in a quiet little studio in the Red Hook section of Brooklyn NY is the Bamboo bike studio. Yeah you heard correct, that is Bamboo bike. The studio boasts a mellow, friendly atmosphere where creating a green, cheap, durable bike from renewable bamboo material is the order of the weekend. You see over the course of a weekend bike builders can turn seven pieces of bamboo into a bike frame, and then use material to lash the frame together. The result is a sturdy bike that can stand up to dirt paths … (13 comments)
