Question NE Expat Get Together?

It's the traditional time of year to be looking ahead to planning getaway trips and holidays.....

One thing I miss is getting together with family and friends for a weekend away....sharing bottles of wine and having a good laugh and now it's mainly just myself and husband, rather than being amongst a group of people.

I've just discovered that there is a 'campground' in (don't barf ) Hershey, PA where you can rent log cabins or you can take your own tent, plus there are loads of motels and hotels nearby too (plus the posh Hershey Hotel & Spa). It could be fun to stay in a log cabin!

Directions & Driving Times from major cities/regions in the NE:

Attractions:

http://www.hersheypa.com/index.html (Personally speaking I don't think I'd bother with Hershey's Chocolate World though LOL!)

Just wondering if it's feasible for some expats to consider having an weekend getaway in Hershey in late Spring or early Summer before the schools break up? There seems to be plenty to do in the surrounding area (the adventure/theme park), Amish country etc. We could perhaps just meet up in the evening(s) if preferred?

Any interest?

I'll ask Mrs.R if she's up for it. Can I bring my Union Jack shorts, knotted hanky hat and string vest? You can keep the adventure/theme park but we'll gladly meet up in the evenings....if were not too pissed by then.

Wife beater I thought they were called

Never forget my first day of college in the big city (Johannesburg after moving down from a farm in the middle of Zim).

Brit girl walks in in her men's black pants held up with red suspenders, a multi-colored mohawk, long sleeved white shirt in the middle of an African summer mind you, huge army boots with Union Jack laces and some sort of tie which I do not recall.

My mouth was open for a while there.....lol....became buds with her after a while. Great chick.

You're not too far from Amish country there, that would be neat.

If this get together is going to be in Amish country then we all best keep our ears open and run for cover if you hear...."Clippity clop clippity clop BANG!! Clippity clop clippity clop BANG!!!" Its mean theres an Amish drive by shooting going on.

Have you got Alziemers? We've had the conversation where it was agreed that you are wearing an Anorak while stuffing your face with donuts.
