8th July 2009 - Hersheypark, Hershey, Pennsylvania
Up early for a nice breakfast, spicy plums in campari, and an omlette, all hand served by the owner, like staying in a very posh familys house. Then onto Hershey park which was not that impressive, yet another ABN ride which we had to refuse. Went on an interesting coaster called the sooper dooper looper, but that was exciting as it got.
Moved quickly onto another mall to get a 'New York' shirt, courtesy of Calvin Klein, then drove quickly through Hershey town. Had a Red Robin meal which ledge initially put a few bucks down for a tip, then realised no one would actually notice or care if he just took it back, so he did, with a wry grin. Also ledge had to have his burger taken back to the chef as it was pouring with blood, so a tip wasnt really justified anyway.
Chilled for a bit back at the hotel and worked out a NYC plan, then went for a walk towards Hershey town, quickly gave up on this as there were no pavements in sight and cars kept hurtling towards us not really knowing what to make of us, we were imagining such conversations as 'hey chip, what are those boys doin, they be walkin! what they walkin for, aint they heard of an automobile?'
Went back for a bit of a rocking chair experience with a beer, then poured a MASSIVE glass of wine just as captain birdseye turned up and smiled. Watched Sideways whilst ledge cooked a tiny pot of soup.
