Pennsylvania visit 2017 - Doing all the things!

In 2017 we were in PA for all the Halloween fun! Really it was one of the busiest visits to PA we have had! We went on the Lancaster Ghost Tour on Halloween which I loved! Fulton Opera House is supposed to be super haunted

As well as lots of other places around the city. We heard some fun ghost stories

While we were there Raymond asked "Where are the covered bridges?" So after shopping one day we drove by one so he could see it



So much fun



My mom taking photos of us taking photos





One day we went to the Corn Maze! 

At the start - still wearing our jackets as we hadn't warmed up yet. It is surprisingly warm in the maze

Plotting and planning

Last year was Charlotte's Web themed

And we did it! We had the fastest time that day when we went through

We found some Halloween crackers at the thrift store and I love how intense I look about them!

We also did an escape room! My first one!

I know it is a bad photo, but the only one I have of the 5 of us pre-scape. With my mom, sister, mom's friend, and us

We were tasked with finding this flag - and we did it! I really enjoyed this! Though it was good Raymond was with us as for one of the tasks we had to slingshot beanbags through a window into the second room and hit something on the other side of the room...and Raymond was the only one who could make it across the room!

We also went to trivia one night - I like the trivia in Lancaster as it is one question at a time and all individual answers so if you don't agree with your team you can write what you want. Then all the correct answers go in a box to win candy periodically! Win!

We also got to visit my cousin Paula and her kids. With all of that plus all the shopping I had to do it was a very busy week! But really nice to get to spend time with my mom and sister and do all the things!

Stupid Libraries.

So I only have six minutes left and just wasted a few seconds letting you know, but I need some assistance in getting things off our iPod onto the net. In the last town we were in, I came so close to getting it up only to be thwarted by the only damn cd -burner in the shop being broken. This is the problem: my iPod is mac formatted - the folks at Apple thought it would be hilarious to not include some sort of compatibility between windows and mac versions of iTunes to read the voice memos you record from any computer. If your iPod formatted on a mac (I believe it's HSF +), windows iTunes will tell you to reformat the buggar . And get this, the iPod records voice memos in old school PC style wav files. What the hell. Anyway, I can't test or install things on this library computer, but if someone checking the blog who is tech savvy could find a program to retrieve data from a mac formatted iPod from a windows machine - a program that doesn't use a god damn install

The end

So it started raining on us for days and we cut out to come back to Seattle for a few days and wait for it to clear up.....and then Raymond decided he really did not want to go back out. So I at first was pretty upset cause I really wanted to get to Canada, or at least as far as we could while the weather was still nice this weekend. And I was feeling really like we were giving up for no reason. Like if one of us were injured or if I was hating it or something then I would have been better about it. But instead it was like the forecast called for gorgeous weather this weekend and we were just going to sit at home. I figured we could have at least gotten to the next stop and then only had one more chunk to do next year, but Raymond really didn't want to go back out so we decided not to. But hopefully by this time next year we will get the last 2 sections done, and maybe go back and do the section from white pass to snoqualmie as we went RIGHT by Mt Rainier and it is supposed to be g

Paris here we come!

So not much to update since the last time. I'm trying to think what we even did the past two weeks. Well last weekend was roller derby nationals in Atlanta, GA and is the first time we haven't gone to nationals in...4 years! We have gone the past 4 years so it was a little sad not to be there. However they do stream it live for a small fee so we did that so last weekend lots of roller derby was watched! Luckily it was on the east coast so it was only 6 hours difference so we didn't stay up too too late (Sat I think we got to bed at like 3am) and we got to watch Gotham win again! It was fun watching from the couch, but I much prefer to be there. I mean when I would be yelling at the TV and clapping and cheering when something good happened and it is just not the same when it is just me doing that. The claps echo in the room...Next year is going to be in Milwaukee which I don't really know anything about, but apparently they have a lot of vegan food. We shall see if we ma
