I do not know the mileage but I left southeastern P A near the Maryland line and drove to Crossville Tenn . in 1984 That was my first NTA convention While we where there we spent some time in and around Nashville and Gatlinburg (Dollywood ,Great Smokey mountains ) At the time I thought the NTA might never be closer to my home We had a great trip The convention was an eye opener considering I had never been to something that was focused around trapping .And the other things we did where enjoyable .However I was dead wrong about the NTA convention being closer to my home .I do not recall the year but sometime after 1984 the convention was held in Clearfield county PA .I was not able to go to that one . And THAN I think is was in 1992 the NTA national convention was held at the York fairgrounds in York PA .That is about 10 miles from my house . I spent several hours through the week helping the PTA set up for the convention and was able to attend all 3 days of the show .It was a lot of fun to see so much trapping related stuff all in one place and almost in my back yard .The world has changed a lot since than and I sure am glad I made time to attend the ones that I was able to go to .

I did 325 miles one way, spent the day and drove back a couple times. The guy that went with me didn't want to spend the night.

NTA Escanaba Michigan -1600 miles give or take depending how many detours you take along the way. Escanaba was real nice place to visit. Some big delicious smoked whitefish they have there.
