I just discovered this site tonight , and Semper Fi 221's thread about about a secret base in north central pa from a few years ago.For what it is
worth , and forgive me if this has already been addressed , but I believe the ariel
pics of a hydro dam are of Kettle Creek State Park northwest of Renova.The Alvin R Bush dam is clearly visable
in the photo.If you take RT144 North off of RT 120 West of Renova , it will take you to the Tamarck Swamp area
in Leidy Township, just a few miles before Hammersly Fork.The Leidy gas field was the largest in Pa , and one of the largest gas fields in the
country.There is a refinery there , and possibly lights from this , and other recent
wells could be causing the lights reported at night.This area north and south of RT120 in Clinton County is in
the heart of the Sproul State forest , and one of the modt remote places in Pa.RT144 between Snow Show and Renova can be considered the badlands of Pa
as few people live up there .As for the area on RT287 south of
Morris Pa , this area is an active mining and gas well area.Trucks owned by Hawbaker in State College make
daily runs from the quarry in Antrim ,Tioga County , to the drilling sites.They are transporting stone to be crushed
and sold commercialy.
I am not aware of any possible area north of Renova for any type of Military base , the terrain is to rugged for an airstrip in my opinon , and for
what? Granted the Leidy gas field is of high importance in this day and age , but
worthy of Miltary involvement , I don't know.As mentioned earlier , Fort Indiantown Gap northeast of Harrisburg
is the closest active ANG base ,and they fly constantly out of there.
I will wrap this up by saying I believe all of the activity up in this area in the last 4-5 years is related to the Marcellus Shale drilling.It is
changing the landscape of northern Pa , if for the better ,only time will tell.
Great site -looking forward to more udates in the future!
