BAM!  Yesterday was a milestone day for me personally.  I traveled to (and set foot in), my 50th and final US State, West Virginia.   Laura has one state left on her bucket list, Kentucky.  We won’t make it there on this trip, but I’m sure I can find time for a quick weekend jaunt, next Spring (Derby Day????).  As a Red, White and Blue-Blooded American, I can’t explain how much it means to me, to have visited all 50 States.  The diversity, topography, people, agriculture….  I could go on and on.  It’s just such an incredible opportunity and I cherish it deeply.

Exhale Tony.  Ease back on the throttle a bit now and tell everybody what else happened yesterday.

OK, so we also drove through 4 states (Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland and Pennsylvania), all within about 60 minutes.  That’s kinda rare, right?  All of this on our way to Chocolate Town USA, Hershey, PA.

We spent a little time there and toured the Museum (which I’m really glad we did).  There was so much that I did not know about Milton Hershey, that everybody should know.  Please take a moment and Wiki him here: Milton Hershey.  His Legacy is not his chocolate company.

After that it was a quick drive through the Penn Dutch country-side to a little town just outside of Allentown.  A nice rest for the night and now off, Into the Mystic.
