    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.

    it was a magnificent drive, the colours are really showing, so beautiful. A bit hard to get photos with speedy Gonzales hacking along in the bus, got a couple of shots.

    we drove through the Appalachian Mountains along the Susquehanna River, this river runs all the way into Chesapeake Bay, just the best scenery. It is beautiful farming country. Saw some reindeer. We went on back roads, saw some beautiful little country ...

    Our driver and friend, Bill Krouse, picked us up at home and drove us to Dulles Airport in Virginia. We left home about 2:30 pm and arrived at Dulles Airport at about 5:00 pm. The traffic wasn't too bad. We ate dinner at Old Dominion Brewing Company in the airport. The next stop is ...

    ... time, which has been covered over by asphalt. Anyone who is familiar with the northeast knows, with freezing and thawing, asphalt over concrete slabs does not a good road make; it's kind of like trying to bandage an amputation. It is not unusual to feel a sudden jolt when riding over one of these band-aided seams.

    ... comforts more than enjoyable. And when you figure that it works out to 5 cents a mile for the whole trip, what would your reaction be? I bet you would be grinning from ear to ear. With a US dollar converting to 15,862 Vietnamese Dong (VND), let's find out how far it will go. A liter of gas there costs 35 cents, which works out to about US$1.40 per gallon. (We pay around $2.00 now.) A bowl of soup - a meal for most there costs just 50 cents, a beer is 63 cents, and ...
