Planning a short three week trip.

And now: (With a statement from Myra's blog:
Her father enjoyed the planning of a trip)
For many years we traveled without making reservations. But RV’ing has changed. There are more and more people on the road. We were wanting to visit friends in Pennsylvania one more time. So I sat out to find a place in Lancaster County around the 4th of July. Impossible! So the best I could do was a few days after the 4th.

 We have met so many good people from Pennsylvania!

I know it is silly, but we remember CORN on the Cob from the Amish farms. The last time I nearly foundered myself. The corn was very reasonable and delicious. We prepared it in the shuck using the microwave. WOW easy and simple. (No silks to pick at)

Also the original ‘Sight and Sound’ theater is there. We are hoping to take in the latest play. I am a hick. I was AMAZED at such a large stage production.  We have been to and enjoyed some famous and outstanding ‘outdoor Dramas.’  But on our first visit To Sight and Sound, I was in awe at the ability of professionals to use such massive props, live animals and allusions. 

The performances are about $60 a seat ( Expensive in my opinion, but I am cheap), however I have not regretted sitting with my girl to enjoy several performances. 'Jesus' is the play this year. I am sure it will be fantastic.

I must be back in NC for a Dr. appt or I would love to go on up to Rondout Valley New York, maybe next year or later this year. Who knows?

Oh yes, corn on the cob cooked in the shuck is the best. We have done it in the microwave that way and also on the grill both delicious!
The world is an open road for you and Sherry. Take all the trips you can, when you can.

Love from over here.

Thanks for the shout-out, Jack! Aw, I was hoping y'all might be coming this way. (Too hot, huh?)
I've never tried preparing corn on the cob in the microwave; nice to know that's a successful hack! $60/per sounds a little high to me, too … but I'll pay good money to make great memories.

I can't close any better than Lisa, so I'll just say DITTO!

I'll have to try corn on the cob in the microwave; sounds delicious. Sounds like great adventures you and Sherry are planning for in the months ahead! I agree $60 sounds like a bit of money but I'm sure it will be a great show!

Love and hugs. Glenda

I have to try corn that way. I will have to look up how to do it. Have fun on your trip.

It took me a second to catch your joke but when I did I snorted coffee out my nose.

Microwave corn in the shuck is the best ever and the silks really do all come out at once. I'll bet the Amish farm corn is fresh picked daily too. So smart to plan ahead these days with RV travel. Andy does all the time, especially with 4 rambunctious boys in the truck.! Have a wonderful 3 week ride/visits/Sight and Sound theater~~~it all sounds amazing. Summer has begun.
love n' hugs from up north where we are finally done moving tons of lumber...phew, keeping in shape!

I'm sure you'll have fun even if it is a short trip. Good thing you thought to make reservations!
