Today is our last day here in Hershey, and just in time, since the thermometer is only going to make it up to about 50 today, and it will be in the high 30s tonight. That’s way too cold for this chubby little RVer!
But that hasn’t kept the weekend campers away. The campground is full again, and we have to chuckle when we see them all bundled up and hovering over their smoky campfires. Of course, I’m sure they see us and shake their heads wondering why we’re all cooped up inside watching TV or sitting at our computers instead of coming out to enjoy the great outdoors.
Between working on the new issue of the Gypsy Journal and a number of days when it rained heavily, we didn’t get to do nearly as much sightseeing as we had hoped to while we have been here. But we know we can always come back again, and we plan to, because this is one of our favorite places in the country.
I worked on the paper most of yesterday, and finished it up about 11 PM. Then I printed out a copy for Miss Terry to proof. She’ll get that done today, I’ll make the corrections that are needed, and we’ll upload it to our printer’s web server tonight, then they’ll go over it and make sure everything is okay. Then we just have to figure out when it will be printed and where to have them ship it to us.
About 5:30 yesterday afternoon, I took a break so we could meet our friend Sean Magee at Fuddrucker’s for dinner. Sean’s a nice guy, and we talked a lot about RVing, which is something he and his wife Sarah hope to be able to do one of these days. In the meantime, he reads a lot of RV blogs, and he was surprised at how many of the bloggers he reads regularly we have met. It’s that small community thing I wrote about last week.
Today we want to go in to Harrisburg to check out a used bookstore that we have heard a lot about, called Midtown Scholar. Even though we have Kindles, we still love bookstores, especially used bookstores. We always seem to find some treasure we can’t live without.
Speaking of books, now that I have the new issue of the paper done, it’s time to get to work on my next Big Lake mystery. I’ve got a story that’s been running around inside my head that I’m looking forward to getting down on paper. I also want to get my latest novel, Crazy Days in Big Lake, formatted for a print copy.
And who knows, if we ever get someplace warm enough, we may pull our Strongback chairs out of the bay and enjoy the great outdoors ourselves!
