Hershey Museum and Chocolate World

August 25, we left Lake Glory and headed home. On the way we decided we didn’t want to go home yet. So we stopped at a Thousand Trails near Hershey,Pa. We signed up for 3 nights and parked in a tree lined row and had plenty of shade for the week. Cost ... Free.. with our Zone Pass membership..Awesome, I like free except when the premium is due (g). This is just relaxing for 3 days. On Tuesday I wanted to see the Milton Hershey Museum. So I drove to Hershey to see this great museum about Hershey’s life and how he started the Hershey Empire and all the good he did for the community. Now off to Chocolate World also. Lots of candy and souvenirs with candy designs on them. stuff.. So here are a few shots to see Milton Hershey Museum and Chocolate World 2013 - AirstreamHobo - Picasa Web Albums  God Bless AirstreamHobo & Mom

Knoebels Park Rally

Aug 22, We pack up for a WDCU Rally. We are going to Knoebels’ Park near Elysburg,Pa. We arrive at Lake Glory Campground and set up on site #32 for the weekend. There are 21 rigs coming from all over, Va., NH, NY, MD, and of course Pa. too. We had a fun week here with the gang catching up on the latest news and having lots of food to eat. Friday nite was hot dogs and burgers with lots of side dishes, nobody starved.
      We went over to the park several times to take in the fun. Knoebels is fun because you pay as you go not a park admission fee.This makes it affordable for all families to enjoy. They sold tickets $20 books for $18 and that covered a lot of rides. Most were $1 to 2 per ride. Even if you don’t ride there is plenty to see and do in the park.Museums..Displays..Food Stands.. and of course people watching also. We even came back one night to capture the night lights of the rides(see pictures).
       This was a rally for WDCU members and also they invited Central Penn Unit also.  They had 19 units we had 2 units but we did have visitors from 2 more members.. Woody and Caroline Barr..and Felix and JoAnn Oleshefski who came for the day.  It was fun seeing them too.
   Saturday we had chicken bar-b-que for supper with french fries and lots of side dishes too. We went through lots of fire wood each night too. One night we pull together 3 fire rings for a nice size fire too. The evening temp was just right for a fire.
     On Sunday, everyone packed up and left, a few stayed one more night.  See Pictures  God Bless, AirstreamHobo & Mom

Pocono 2013

August 1, Thursday..
      I am headed for the Pocono 400 with my son, Brian and grandson, Mason. The Man Cave(Airstream) on wheels is packed with 5 days supply of food and clothes. The drive is short about 3 hours ..119 miles and we arrive to a fogged in race track. We drive around and round till we see Airstreams in the field. We are 7th to arrive. 17 is the total coming. We formed a wagon wheel of parking the Airstreams and unhook, then park tow vehicles in the rear.
    The fog rolls in and out for the day. on Friday, we go over to the race track and see the cars and pits. This week is all about racing cars and trucks. Arca Car Race and Truck races were each 125 miles long, 50 laps to the winner. All week we had many get togethers and Happy Hours at the circle. There is a tent set up in the center for all camp activities.
     Each day we walked over to the track and took in the sights. People sure love their NASCAR Drivers. We watched the garages, checking the cars and getting them ready for Race Day. The tool boxes were AWESOME.. every man’s dream.
    We also watch other campers come in and setup in the infield. We had to pass thru a tunnel to get to the field to park. From our camp we had surround sound all week of time trials and the big race. We saw the truck race from the grandstands, but the Pocono 400 we watches from the infield at the turns and also we had a TV screen set up in the tent so we could hear and see the whole race and hear the commentary.
    We stay till Monday am then pack-up and also clean the field before leaving...Bye..Bye...
Here are pictures from the week..
