Exploring PA . . .

We started out about 11:30 this morning with Nick as our tour guide. Ostensibly, we were also looking for a nearby Camping World so I could check out some step covers, but we ended up on a wild goose chase through some beautiful Pennsylvania countryside.

Some of our wanderings took us through Hershey, PA, “The Town that Chocolate Built”. And even the streetlights are shaped like Hershey Kisses.

All over town there are hospitals, libraries, schools, colleges, and orphanages built by company founder Milton Hershey. And like all the towns in this area, it seems like every home is nicely painted and neatly landscaped.

Our quest for Camping World turned out to be a lost cause since we found out that Camping World’s website considers Camping World RV Sales sites the same as the camping stores. So we ended up at an RV sales lot, and found out the nearest Camping World store is actually in New Jersey, 87 miles away.

Oh well, we saw some beautiful countryside, anyway.

Our next stop was a Staples, where Nick mailed a package, Jan got some fancy paperclips, and I got a new toy – A USB computer-controlled missile launcher.

Just another way to annoy the cats.

Afterwards we drove through a few of the surrounding towns, and also checked out a nearby Outdoor World RV Park.

We were all entranced by unique architecture of the area’s buildings.

After some more driving around and a few more stops we ended up having dinner at the Golden Corral in Lebanon, one of our favorite places around the country.

After a nice leisurely meal, we got back to the park to find our friends Stu and Donna parked right up the hill from us. It’ll be good to see them again.

It’s supposed to be a really rainy day tomorrow so it’ll probably be a stay-at-home day. Those are always nice.
