Just finalized my hotel & car rentals for the fall trip. Will arrive in Gettysburg Fri pm, Oct 20 (driving from Dulles). Three nights in the G-burg area. Leaving Monday morning (10/23) for Antietam/Sharpsburg. One night in area (Harper's Ferry, actually). Fly home Tuesday late afternoon.

Am sacrificing some convenience for cheap. Will stay in Chambersburg for the Gettysburg leg of the trip -- and at Harpers Ferry while exploring Antietam. Wife won't be traveling with me after all, so will probably pass on the horseback riding this time. Looking forward to it. Hope to see lots of GCM'ers, Norbsofters and others there!

Any recommendations for possible gathering places in or near Gettysburg for:

Friday evening 10/20/2017?

Saturday morning breakfast before heading to the battlefield (Colbert's suggestion)?

Saturday evening?

What about touring the field itself on Saturday and/or Sunday? Options include:
1) Everyone's on their own (since individual interests will differ)
2) Go together using some pre-agreed itinerary?
3) All chip in to rustle up a battlefield guide?

Thoughts?

Have a good time folks, drink one for me, hope you do it again in a year or two and I'd be there for sure. Either way I'll be visiting those battlefields after I become a bit more established. Edit- Maybe try Chickamauga or Shiloh next time, those are in my back yard. I'm sure Razorback could even provide free lodging.

I am good with whatever we end up doing. I will probably just tag with whomever, as I have been to Gettysburg several times to see the field. As for breakfast there are any number of good places to go to. Feel free to go through this list and pick whatever you guys want to meet at if we end up doing it. I am not particular.

My wife and I (MacLeod) will be there 20th, staying through weekend, traveling down to Sharpsburg on Monday, traveling onto Harpers Ferry on Tuesday then on back west.
