Sep 23 moved down to York, PA 245 miles, weather is still lows in the 50’s and highs in the 70’s
It was cloudy most of the day as we out ran a cold front that was moving south.
Caught some of the first fall colors
Checked into Ben Franklin RV Park.
Sep 24 Road the York County Heritage Trail North to the city of York. On the way into town we came across the Agricultural & Industrial Museum. It is very old manufacturing building with lots of interesting old items. Found out that York is the home of Stauffer cookies. Also found out that animal crackers do not contain animal fat, so they are safe for vegans to eat.
Once we were in town, we walked around checking out the farmers market and some old buildings with neat restaurants in side. After lunch we road back to the car and then back to our campsite.
Sep 25 Road out on the trail to the 300-foot long Howard Tunnel. On the way back to the jeep we found a tavern on the side of the tracks for lunch. We could not pass up crab meat on cheese fries and a bowl of crab dip. As we road the trail it was interesting to picture Abe Lincoln in his presidential rail car on these same tracks writing the Gettysburg address.
The reason we stopped in York was to see the shoe house that “the lady that had so many children she didn’t know what to do” lived in and then it was back to the camper.
