    First time camping in Hershey

    The first time my two best friends, my twin brother and i went to Hershey high meadow we knew we were going to have a blast. Once we had arrived to the campground we all headed to the front desk to get our key to the rustic cabin where we stayed since we don't like sleeping in tents and can't afford an RV. The employees are so nice and helpful too. There was also a shopping area/ gift shop, and an arcade which was awesome. Now the cabin we stayed in had 1 bed, 1 bunk bed, mini fridge, TV, microwave, air conditioning, heat, fire pit to cook food, and a cabinet to put clothes in. When we drove the car to our cabin it looked pretty small but actually was big inside. Once we unpacked our stuff we all headed down to the swimming pool where we swam for at least 2 hours. the campsite has 2 pools. One big pool and a smaller one for little children. The life guards are well trained and really friendly. my friends and i would play water ball or cannon ball competitions. While swimming we met a family and started talking to them and playing water games with there kids who were nice.
    Once we finished swimming we went to the arcade to play some games for 45 minutes. My favorite game was DDR( dance dance revolution). Once we finished that we went to the store/ gift shop which was next door and got our tickets to Hershey park and candy. The gift shop was so awesome because they sell anything for your tent, RV, etc... Once we finished with that we headed back to our cabin for lunch then we decided to play some sports at the big field which is near the pool and playground. We all played basketball, volleyball, catch with a tennis ball, badminton, and Frisbee.
    Night time is the best because you can start your campfire right next to your cabin( there are 3 types of cabins. Rustic, extended, and deluxe cabin which has a bathroom/shower, kitchen, 1 bed, bunk bed, sofa bed.) I bought myself a grill at the campgrounds gift shop for 20.00 and used the fire pit for Smores then bond fire.
    If anyone likes Hershey park the campground has a shuttle bus that takes you to the park then back to the campground.
    I would definitely recommend this campground because its a great place for children, parents, the elderly, etc..., the employees are so friendly too, its near Hershey park and you will enjoy it there. if not then give it a try. I will be going there for the 3rd time.

    ... exhibit on another trip - and today was the day. It did remind me of our trip with Maui as one of the last places we took her. :-( as she came with Zach and me to visit my parents. Of course, that was also our last trip to their house outside Pinehurst. Given Maui no longer with us and parents sold their house, really glad we took the time for that vacation/road trip. Anyhow, the inside exhibits are free. While the place is relatively small, it is packed ...

    Post-visit: Past the Airport

    ... I suddenly find myself in a very generic, peaceful middle class suburb... feels far, far detached from the industrial decay and ghetto feel of the riverside below... Highspire wasn't all that inspiring back in 2007--nor is it today. there is a nice shady gazebo where I can take a rest before continuing on my long, sun-scorched stretch past the airport and on to Middletown. Here I think I'm ready to call it a ...

    ... this seems to be a gesture of worship--an invitation to folks passing, caught up in the rat race of life, to think about the spiritual for a moment, perhaps? He's not asking for money, nor is he shouting out an unsolicited sermon at passerbys... he's just standing there with his hands reaching to the sky. A truck driver honks at him, and he cheerfully waves back. It seems that this is a regular ritual he does. Some people wander around playing music on ...

I reach the Mighty Susquehanna... the skyline of Harrisburg on the other side... The kilometer long bridge... I'm finally headed for the "big city", after weeks of small towns, forest and ...
