Road Trip --- Part Deux

Mrs Blog and I are off on our second road trip of the year.

Tomorrow we will be visiting Steamtown in Scranton, PA.

From there we are moving to Bird-in-Hand, PA in the heart of Lancaster County. We are staying just up the street from the Bird-in-hand Farmers Market.

For four days Mrs. Blog will get some payback for loyally following me to all those football games. She starts hyperventilating when she hears "Amish Quilts" and "Amish Crafts" So for four days, she will shop till she drops. Don't worry about me. I bring a camping chair and lots of reading material.

It turns out that this shoppers paradise is only about 35 miles from Newark,DE via back roads like PA 896. Hope to see a lot of UMass fans at the game.

As usual I'll try to keep the Blog going. However, if it falls silent, you will know that I do not have a working Internet connection and I'll be back next Sunday.

Go UMass!

Frank, while you are down my way you should visit Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, PA. You won't be disappointed. It was formerly owned by the Dupont Family.

As a Pennsylvanian, enjoy the trip! Make sure you get whoopie pies and other desserts from the Amish farmer's markets.

I have been to Longwood
gardens. Beautiful Place!

Yeah, the food is good in Lancaster County. It will be a high calorie week for the Blog.

I like Imergut Pretzels
