Been to the outlets SEVERAL times! Used to live in Lebanon, right next to Reading. Lebanon & Hershey are also right next to Lancaster... PA Dutch Country. We see plenty of horses & buggies!! Nothing like Lebanon Bologna, though!

I haven't been! I've been very busy! It's nice to be missed though! I was checking my email account & came across a message that something had been added to the one thread. So, I thought I'd check it out real quick. ;)

I have not been in PA for long. When in NJ we visited Hersey one Christmas. I think it takes about 2 hours to get there from here.

Really?? Cool!! I actually go up 66west, to 81 to 70, to the Turnpike at Breezewood, to Bedford and then get on 99 all the way to State College...It's a shorter route even though it doesn't sound it. I've done it in 4.5 hours before...but that was ummm....going a little faster than Mr. Policeman would've preferred me to!!:wah:

I used to live in York, PA...I might have already told you that....:thinking:

I went through Harrisburg a year ago to go from Gettysburg to Williamsport.

WOW!! You really do go a round-about way! Why not just go up 81 to 22/322??

dunno, always went the other way....thought about it, since 322 is a main route in State College....

Is it shorter??

I lived in the Pittsburgh suburb of Sewickley, back in the early 1970's. I have been a fan of the Pittsburgh Steelers, ever since.

That's funny!!!! We stayed at the Holiday Inn by the airport... in Essington!! WOW!! Small world, huh??

I tried to get some pics with my cell phone, but they didn't really come out. Would it be possible for your friend to email me a copy? Are they on a digital camera?? I was even in the eighth row! Could've/should/ve gotten some GREAT pics... but didn't...

I just sent you a pm. How funny, right down the street practically. So, you got to see all the planes coming in. I see them everyday, they are huge birds:wah: they really fly low over the burbs and sometimes you can see the numbers on the bottom of the plane and you can always see the wheels.

Yeah, I was watching them from the room, before we went to the concert. We ate at Denny's after the concert. They weren't that busy, but the service was kinda lousy anyway. Tables never got cleared!! :confused:
