We are always looking for places to drive. This weekend's cruise in the Taurus SHO was to Renninger's Market in Kutztown, PA for The Purple Cow's PEZylania 4. The drive from our place is just a bit over 3 hours. We spent less than an hour at the PEZ gathering and spent way more money than we had planned on but it was only because the selection was very good. Inside the market we spent even more money and had these awesome Buffalo Chicken Pretzel wraps. Yum!

Back on the road, we decided to check out Crystal Cave which was also in Kutztown. This was a bit of a disappointment. There weren't very many formations and it was pretty crowded. I would say pass on this one unless you are really bored. The nature trail was the only saving grace for the place. This short little walk is through a collection of different pine trees.

About 12 miles down the road from the Cave is one of our favorite stops. Cabela's, in Hamburg, PA, awesome place to explore. There are aquariums with fresh water fish, tons of stuffed animals, and even a shooting gallery. We have been here over half a dozen times and it still excites us. Be sure to try some of the exotic meats in the  cafeteria! Our little cruise lasted a bit over 12 hours but driving is what owning a car is all about.

NCL Norwegian Pearl Cruise to Alaska - The Haven Courtyard

If you ever have a chance to sail to Alaska, do it! If you can save up a little more to be able to stay in The Haven Courtyard on Norwegian Cruise Lines, do it! For our anniversary Peg and I decided we would take our first cruise to Alaska. NCL sales called us, last minute, and offered us a deal to upgrade to a penthouse in The Haven Courtyard aboard the Norwegian Pearl. We did and it was fantastic! The Bird of Paradise Courtyard Suite Room 14014 (an S5 level penthouse suite) would be our home for the seven day cruise which started in Seattle, Washington.

Photos from Craig Naff's Hotrod Body Shop with Ron Covell

It's not often that you get the chance to hang out with one of the world's best hotrod metal shapers, Craig Naff. Add to that the fact that Ron Covell, a fantastic metal fabricator and instructor, would be teaching a class in Craig's shop and you have the potential for a fantastic Saturday. I made the drive over to Craig's shop on the outskirts of Woodstock, VA early in the morning using Ron Covell's Basic Metal Shaping class as an excuse to get out of the house.
