Jul 9, 2019 - TT Hershey and Hershey Chocolate

Leaving Fort Meade for Hershey we had to head in a northwest direction. And only 68 miles later we arrived at the RV Park to find our ideal site under some trees that afforded us plenty of shade which on some of those hot days played well keeping us and the RV cool. We'll be here only for 6 days and have several fun things to see and do. Amongst them are Hershey Chocolate World, Indian Echo Cavern, Gettysburg Battlefield, Lititz Pretzels, ride on a Mennonite Horse drawn Wagon, do some fishing. Whew, it's going to be a full week.

Jun 20, 2016 - The Sweetest Place on Earth

From Hershey RV Park (TT) Lebanon, PA We arrived here Saturday and it was crowded. We were told it rigs were leaving the next day so we moved to a better site. We went to Hershey to get some chocolatextra. We found a very nice town and went to the Hershey Story and learned about the founder, Milton Hershey. He was a remarkable man and very interesting. We then went to Chocolate World. The first thing we did was take a ride that showed the history of chocolate. Then we went on the trolley and saw the town that Hershey created. I liked the...

Oct 13, 2015 - First travel day going South

Got packed up with food for the fridge and left the area around 10:30. Met Aunt Ina for lunch in Wanaque, NJ at 12:30 and left there around 2:30. I took 287 in NJ and 78 in PA but couldn't make it to 81 so I found a Walmart nearby. Turns out it is located right next to active railroad tracks, and trains went by at least every hour, whistles blowing quite loud. No wonder no one else stayed the night here!

Oct 17, 2014 - Inn 422 Lebanon PA

Dinner at Inn 422, a haunted home now a restaurant. The walls and grounds of our stately Victorian Inn abound with history and legend. If only the walls could talk! It is interesting to know that the Cornwall Iron Furnace was owned at one time by the Robert Coleman, small world, it seems like we continue to find history that interact and complete a circle. Legend goes that the original home on the front part of our foundation was built by Robert and Ann Coleman as a graduation gift to their daughter, Anne Caroline, and bestowed upon her...

Sep 21, 2014 - Hey, Where's Tony?

9/21/2014. Sunday. Hey! Where's Tony? We had to take I88 to I81 to Lebanon, Pa. Interstate driving is the most boring and tiring driving there is. We really missed the rolling hills we drove through in New York; we love passing the through the countryside and small towns to see how people are living. The roads in Pa ain't no better the ones in Ny; there is always one lane closed due to construction and the roads themselves are like riding over speed bumps ad infinitum. On the road at 8am with a light breakfast and no where on these...

May 9, 2014 - Historic Blue Bird Inn, Lebanon PA

We had a great lunch at the Historic Blue Bird Inn after we parked our RV. The food was excellent and reasonably priced The Blue Bird Inn is one of the oldest continuously operating Inn’s serving food in Pennsylvania. The cornerstone reads “Built by Jos. & Ann Bowman 1859 A.D”. In the early years, the Inn was named Ye Olde Golden Key Hotel. In the early 1900s, it was owned by George S. Trafford, George was born in Jonestown and worked as an Ironworker in his younger years. He was also a master marksman. Blanche Molly was the owner of the...

Nov 21, 2012 - On the road again ...

See that's the thing about traveling in a motorhome, when you're ready to get on the road - you're already on it! We ended up getting down here at about 11:45pm. We stopped about 20 miles north of Harrisburg because Papa figured those spots would all be taken by truckers. There's a lot of trucks on the road trying to get miles and get home for the holidays. So far great weather, no wind, no rain no fog. Great conditions for traveling!

Aug 16, 2011 - Pennsylvania

There were several things we planned to do in Pennsylvania. On the 17th, we drove to Hershey to visit Chocolate World. We did not do the theme park, although it appeared that everybody else in the Northeast was there. We did the ride through the simulated chocolate factory and that was fun and informative. Of course, that tour ends at the ends at the chocolate store? Driving down the main street of Hershey gave us an interesting sight - the street lights look like Hershey Kisses. From Chocolate World, we went to Harrisburg to see the...

Jun 30, 2011 - TT Hersey

WOW we made it here after a long journey from Palm Springs,Ca. We were lucky to get a great spot in the H section up the hill a little with no one on the right side just grass that I did not have to cut. Met up with John and Martha Miller friends we met and told us about SOWERS in 2003. Also had a visit with Rob's Grandson Kaleb for a few days. Kaleb and Rob rode bikes every day more then once we also went to see Joesph at the Sight and Sound Theatre after we ate at Shady Maple. It has been great just to be still for a while and enjoy...

Oct 10, 2010 - Hersey, PA - TT

We left the lake in the early afternoon and headed just a little over 100 miles down the road. It is amazing the difference in the temperature just this far south. We will be here for 3 weeks. Mom's 80th birthday party is scheduled for the 30th of October so that is keeping us further north than we normally are at this time of year. There are several pickle ball players here so we are having fun every morning. I am really happy to discover a farmers market about 2 miles away that sells raw milk for $4/gal. On the 30th, we drove to NJ for my...

Sep 26, 2009 - Enjoying Nothing

I always feel guilty when I don't have much to write about, like the past few days. We have basically just hung around camp, actually inside most of the time. Yesterday, John was feeling more puny than me and spent a lot of the day sleeping, which I believe is what you need to do when your body says to. Today, we are both feeling better. We are not sick enough to stay in bed or not eat and we are not running high fevers, etc. It is just feeling yucky. -- We have been watching tv, listening to radio, reading and doing puzzles. The puzzle we...

Sep 24, 2009 - Shopping in Lebanon

It was hot and humid until around 11:00 pm, when it started raining heavily with thunder and lightning. It didn't cool off much during the storm and once it quit raining, the air was really heavy with moisture, making for a restless night for both of us. The kids were up at 4:30 am. -- Today, it is overcast and warm and once again, we have the AC running this afternoon. It is supposed to cool down over the next several days to more fall like temperatures in the 70's. Where did our sweatshirt weather go? -- We are long overdue on shopping...
