Road Trip–Chambersburg, PA



Our Saturday road trip took us up Molly Pitcher Highway (Route 11) in Chambersburg, PA. The goal was to go to Trickling Springs Creamery to pick up some real milk; a couple gallons of whole milk and a quart of organic chocolate milk. The dairy produces the best milk around. On our way, we passed a Gibble’s distribution facility. It was too bad that all we were able to take away from there was a picture since they didn’t have a retail sales outlet. Probably the best stop on the trip was the Country Breeze Farm Market. This fantastic little market had all sorts of bulk items for baking and cooking. We took home some high gluten flour, mushroom popcorn kernels, lemon baking chips, Wilbur chocolate chips, a couple of dip mixes, and a bottle of Pennsylvania Dutch birch beer.  Our final stop was to check out Johnnies. Johnnies is a restaurant and service supply store. We couldn’t escape without buying a commercial grade frying pan and some Hershey’s chocolate Twizzlers. The trip was a great few hours of exploring. I just love picking a random destination and driving.

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.
