39th Annual Eastern Primitive Rendezvous
Sept. 25 - Oct. 3, 2015
I am trying my darnedest to find a site that is primitive. Most of the contacts I have had either had some issue with other people that group owned a property, or in the case of the Doddridge County Historical Society, have not returned my phone calls after initial contact.
In regards to the Boy Scout camp that I have seen referenced on here. It would have been fine…EXCEPT…it was blatantly modern, concrete shower and bathrooms throughout the site. The gun ranges were modern, like at Friendship. (Concrete slips). The parking was not large enough for us let alone for the public. The director has not returned any of my calls; the camps ranger let me look at the property.
I understand everyone’s frustration. I myself am just as frustrated. I would like to touch on the situation with the original Doddridge site. I was contacted in February by the Landowners Lawyer to fill me in on some possible safety issues. I was told that the Fracking companies had moved some equipment into our camp area. (Namely a couple of 50,000 gal frack water tanks right behind the location of the tavern we had built there in 2006) There were also a couple of main pipelines going into that same area this summer, if not sooner. It was just as disheartening to me when I found out. I was looking forward to going back as much as the next having spent many a summer on my grandparent’s property. (Don’t ask, it’s not near big enough).
I chose not to pursue the Doddridge site do to my own safety concerns with frack water contamination possibilities and OUR kids playing in the creek onsite. I have not given up, but time is running out. I am still looking but our decision will be made no later than 05/20/2015.
Please allow me to stress the fact that the event "HAS NOT" been cancelled, only the location will change and we will keep you informed as that change is made.
I would like to offer my personal apologies for this unforeseen set of circumstances.
Your Humble Booshway,
Mark “Ditto” Adamik.
