    Wow, When I was little we would go there to camp and my parents would compete with black powder rifles. One year my mom accidently won the mens competition. She was parcticing on the range while they were competing!! LOL I just had a bunch of memories pop up just thinking about the place. And that was 40+ years ago.

    Sounds like a great time! Hope you find like of grest deals!

    A wee bit far for me, but good luck foraging for bargains.

    Nell I've been a couple of times years ago. It was a blast. FYI many vendors ( at least used to) will trade on items as well. Be prepared for a couple of days, as pretty much the entire town turns into one huge market place. Divided into different areas, from primative/ mountian man stuff to ultra moden gadgets. Have fun and enjoy.
    If by what I have learned over the years, allow me to help one person to start to prepare. If all the mistakes I have made, let me give one person the wisdom that allows them to save their life or the life of a loved one in an emergency. Then I will truly know that all the work I have done will have been worth every minute.

    Friendship, IN. is the national Headquarters for the National Muzzle Loading Rifle Association, and their shoots/rondy's are a must see event for anyone into that.
    Along with that is the hugh flea market......
