Well, my job has brought me out to Hershey. Being from the other side of the state, I was wondering if any coal burners live around here. Possibly to meet up for a dinner someplace. I'm looking forward to seeing what the area has to offer!

I'm from Jonestown,right near the Rt 72/Rt 22 intersection which is real close to the I81/I78 split. We are about 15 miles from Hershey,i've been to & thru Hershey many times in my life. Hope those members from out of the area enjoyed their time here,hope you got to smell the chocolate as you drove thru.

We go down to Carlisle, PA (about 30 miles from Hershey) for the All Ford Show in June every Year. We've been over to the AACA Museum (Antique Automobile Club of America) over in Hershey a couple times. It has a lot of neat stuff if you into Cars and Transportation.

I've never gone to any of the car shows at Hershey or Carlisle...... I have been stuck in traffic jams caused by both tho :) Saw lots of neat cars too just by driving past. We get to see quite a few old cars driving in our area when any of the car shows are around.

We stayed in town for the RV show. Traffic jam for sure! The show was unreal, I've never seen so many RV's in one place. Seeing the old cars driving in town the week of the car show was cool! The antique car museum is worth a visit too.

The Carlisle shows I know are crazy busy. we've been going since the Ford Show started like 15 years ago? or so. We usually stay over in Mechanicsburg.

We usually go real early on Sat to avoid some of the traffic, but usually have to sit in line for 20-30 mins depending. Last year we had 3000+ show cars on the field. and about 1500 vendors.

A nice place to visit when there is nothing going on.

I like stopping at Troegs when I get to Hershey.

Hershey is a little too high class for us Schuylkill county folk, what with their indoor plumbing and such. :roll:
