SO, one of my favorite past times, when I must wait, is thinking of places we have been and WHERE to next?
We haven't done a lot of that lately because of the uncertainty of the diesel engine and the follow-ups to surgery. But that doesn't stop this wild goose mind of mine from wandering.
One of our favorite places is the Lancaster, PA area. The country is beautiful, we love the Amish contributions to the area, and especially harvest time and eating, fruit, fresh corn and tomatoes grown locally.
We also know a sweet lady there, Tracy who owns a great chocolate factory. As everyone knows, Sherry is a chocoholic.
You gotta love a lady who knows what she wants, Tracy went to work for Miesse's then (after awhile) figured a way to buy the company. The company has a great heritage, it was started in 1875.

Such a pleasant lady from a great family. We knew her from her school days, when her dad was my boss and we were all stationed in Key West.
A visit to one of her outlets is always on schedule. We love deals anyway and always look for the broken bars or errors by the pound. LOL (bags of oops!)
We can stay in the area up to six weeks at no charge, since we have two or three membership parks in that area. It is always pleasant to just wander (driving) thru the beautiful farm land. (Note:All who wander are not lost!)
Of course visits to friends Dan & Joan from the USN and Dallas & Marian from USMC times, are in order and maybe a Fuddruckdrs BUT always, some Pennsylvania Dutch cooking. Now I have talked myself into a PA trip.
Sherry will always find some part of the AT that we hiked. We will climb aboard and look for Hikers. We hiked the full 230 miles of trail in PA! Hikers call it Rocksylvania, the place where boots come to die! There are thousands of little (and big) sharp rocks, where you least expect them. LOL
PS: Messie Chocolate is the best, DELICIOUS no preservatives.
