I had been wanting to stop at this place for a while.



I have passed it several times and always found it interesting.
Del Buono's Bakery is just up the street !
You remember, the The Quintessential Quagmire of Quirky Acquisitions !!!!
Page 25

Anyway, this MicAdee's is very retro.



Take a drive thru the Golden Arches.



And their old McBurgerhead Dude !







Nice 1950's advertising.



Ronald had not been created yet.

The unfortunate part of this McDonald's in Mount Ephraim is that someone took the drive thru a little too seriously.
A man drove at speeds of up to 100 MPH and crashed into the front of this building in 2002.
This was no accident either, and it claimed the lives of Three Employees.
Information can be found here on philly.com



Here is an original article on an interesting website that is a little disturbing !

There is a road directly across from this McDonald's that ends at the road that goes by the front.
The man drove down that street, crossed the highway and into the building.

According to the first article the original building was razed after the accident, so this is a reproduction of an earlier McD's design.

I have been laying out a trip which will take us out to Erie, PA.

I have been wanting to stop at Cherry Springs State Park near Wellsboro, PA.
The sky is pretty dark there and you can see the Milky Way and lots of stars.
Something lacking here in almost any part of New Jersey.

Then ride west, see some sites, take some pictures (), and camp along Lake Erie, if possible.

Camping seems to hard to find in PA for some reason.

Then on the way back see some more interesting stuff I found online.

Did you know that Jimmy Stewart was from Pennsylvania ?

I am still in the planning stages.
Once I get over what I got I will need a break.

I will post more when I get my act together !

the road up and back down to hyner View is fun and tight...I have friends whose families have settled Tioga county back in the day...they have some awesome knowledge of backroads...basically in the Wellsboro area any road with a 4 in its number will be an awesome road to ride... also you have to stop in Wellsboro...its a town that comes straight out of New England...in fact at the time Wellsboro was founded the area was considered New England. The Wellsboro Diner is the oldest diner in the USA and the Penn Wells Hotel is an awesome landmark with interesting history and archetecture...AND
You are planning to see the PA Grand Canyon right??? At Leonard Harrison State Park...

Thank you Norman.

I had originally intended staying at Cherry Springs, but they do not take reservations and it is pretty rustic.
I prefer a shower once in a while !

Thanks for all the links.
I will check them out.

We are probably going the week of September 14-20,
but it would have been nice to camp with you guys.
Perhaps if the "package" comes on time we can make the trip up with you anyway.

We will play that one by ear for now.

Hey Ben.

We have been to Wellsboro before to do some genealogy research.
We did eat at the Wellsboro Diner.
That is a pretty neat place.

And we are planning on not only seeing the Greencanyon, but camping there as well at Leonard Harris State Park.
I need to make reservations.

I have been told I was at the PA Grandcanyon before when I was young.
I don't remember it.
The pictures of the canyon remind me of West Virginia.

The roads around there are not overly twisty but they do offer some nice scenery and virtually no real traffic to speak of......Leonard Harrison is only 10 miles from Wellsboro.

Here are some of the pictures I liked from our recent trip in Pennsylvania.

We basically went to Wellsboro, Erie and Altoona.

This is the PA Grand Canyon viewed from Leonard Harrison State Park near Wellsboro, PA.



One of the wonderful meals my wife made.
That is a piece of chicken by the way cooked on our homemade BBQ !



Yes, that is a plug in my tire !!!
That got me to a dealer who happened to have a tire close enough to replace this one.
And yes, I did trim that off!







Kinzua Viaduct, Mount Jewett, PA.
And I had nothing to do with that ! HONEST !



Camping on the shores of Lake Erie.



With some nice sunsets.





The view from our tent !



Presque Isle Lighthouse, Erie, PA.



Another lighthouse on Presque Isle leading to Port Erie.



Statue of Liberfrog !



Statue of Oliver Hazard Perry, the Hero of Lake Erie during the War of 1812.



General Anthony Wayne Blockhouse.







Drake Well, the first well drilled for oil in the World !
Titusville, PA.







Replica of the Brooklyn Bridge at the site where John Roebling invented the Steel Rope Cable in Saxonburg, PA.



One of my buddies.



Statue of Jimmy Stewart in his hometown of Indiana, PA.



Why we saw no trains going through the famous Horseshoe Curve in Altoona, PA.



Our last campground at Prince Gallitzin State Park, Patton, PA.



More, of course, when I get time.

Looks delicious and good job on the bbq idea, but I think she lied to you on what you are eating.
Dont tell her I told ya
Looks like a great trip, what did you think of Kinzua?

All I know is that it tasted just like chicken!

The bridge, or what is left of it, is an awesome site to see.
As long as you are not afraid of heights you should go out to the end. It is safe.
There is a lot of construction going on at the site because they are building a new visitor center but you can still get to the bridge.
The road in is a little narrow and rough at points but not a problem at all.
Very nice area to ride in.
And great scenery from the bridge.
You should see some great fall colors when you go.
