Sept 26th ~ Day #82

Golf at Briarwood in Thomasville PA

A perfect day on the road….cool night, warm sunny day and a “Long Walk Spoiled” 9 holes at Briarwood Golf course in Thomasville PA. A nice public course and a great walk…best I can say…Oh and a cool Yuengling after the round …getting a theme here??? We arrived home and opened the doors to smell the chicken soup we had started in our slow cooker this morning before leaving . Packing our bags again tomorrow and off to Lancaster

Sept 25th - Day #81 (Jack Pomeroy is 65 years old today!!)

Trace's birthday dinner

Haircut for Nance . . . $37 with the senior discount she was offered!!! (looks pretty good, too…especially for a Super Cuts do!) and then for our birthday celebration…off to the Mongolian restaurant… we thought! Our experience in Richmond at the Gray Wolf (we think) was terrific! Casual dining but imaginative food. We arrived at the recommended spot and were told, dinner would be $9.99 (NOT a good sign!) . . . We were seated among lots of families and a few massive boys drinking our favorite Pennsylvania beer...Yuengling and were promptly asked…”Pepsi or iced tea?” WHAT???? No celebratory martinis or cold beers for us? Seems we would have had to BYOB! …who knew? OK . . . we’re outa here! Trace’s choice? “ Let’s go across the street to Texas Chain Saw Massacre” so we did go directly to The Texas Roadhouse (NOT to be confused with The Redding Roadhouse) Great, great steaks and not-so-great martinis. But……more Yuengling! It was all good. Happy Birthday on-the-road-Trace!

September 24th - Day #80 (Happy Birthday Pammie!)

Harley Davidson Tour

perfect Day on the road…but for waking up with the temperature in the THIRTIES! Our trusty furnace did the job in about 15 mins, though, while we actually watched the news on the Today Show on TELEVISION!!!! ( a rare but much appreciated treat for Nancy) Today’s trip was to the York PA Harley Davidson factory . . . a great take. It was a terrific and informative tour…we could have taken the 2 hour “steel toed tour” for $70 which lasted about 20 minutes more than ours . . . and we would have gotten neon safety vests to wear and take home! We had an hour and 45 min tour and no free vest but…the tour was free! It was like watching an episode of How It’s Made, live!
Next, off to a very late lunch, or, what one would consider an even later breakfast . . . at the iconic Lee’s Diner on the Old Lincoln Hiway, Rte 30, outside York… established in 1951 in all its chrome glory complete with Juke Box selectors at each booth loaded with Frankie Avalon hits and whatnot ;). Omelets with fresh veggies for Nance (actually, she always orders a “scrambled omelet”) and a farmer’s omelet (meats and home fries right in the omlet) for Trace…but NO SCRAPPLE for anyone!
Looking forward to celebrating Trace’s birthday dinner tomorrow night (a little after the fact due to multiple previous dinners on and around Sept 8th that precluded our own celebration!) Our plan is to visit a local Hanover Mongolian dinner spot we were told about…………..

Sept 23rd - Day #79

campfire "Mountain Pies"

couple mile walk through the corn maze on a very warm first of fall afternoon after a chilly start to the day . . . and tonight……our first “Mountain Pies” served to us by Dee & Ed Long from Frederick, outside Baltimore right near the home of our friends The Crosthwaits, straight from their toasty campfire. They were toasted white buttered, crustless bread filled with pepperoni, cheese and sliced black olives….they rival, although NOT supersede, Jayne’s calzones! Delicious! Trace “foolishly” turned on our outside light at the time of our departure for the campfire about 20 yards from our door and we actually needed it 41/2 hours later when we returned! A very nice hanging around the campfire (and into their rig when the temp dropped to the 40’s) evening.
Our understanding is that Mountain Pies can be assembled for breakfast, lunch, dinner, as we had them, or a dessert treat filled with apples, sugar etc….I’d be willing to conduct an exhaustive survey, if need be!
