Chocolate World

I’m back on the road again, spreading the OpenNMS love, this time in Hershey, Pennsylvania.

I was born in Pittsburgh but we moved to North Carolina when I was 6 months old, so most of my experience with the state has been on family trips in the summer. Somehow I always missed Hershey, so I was looking forward to this trip.

It’s been fun so far. Today we went to Chocolate World during lunch. According to my hosts they had toned the “cheese” factor down considerably from the old days.

Unfortunately I won’t have much time to spend sight-seeing since most places close before I get off work. I’m staying right next to the Antique Automobile Club of America museum, and I’ll be back up in a couple of weeks during their fall meet so that should be cool. Not as cool as the Hershey’s Kiss Car I saw on my way out this morning, though:

What I’d really like to be able to do is visit the York Harley Davidson Plant which is having an open house this week. If anyone wants to donate a 2009 Springer Softail to the cause, just let me know.

You can even pick out the color.
