A Quick Trip to Cleveland

I never thought I’d be saying that I really want to plan a future trip to Cleveland, but, here we are. I didn’t just pick Cleveland randomly. I was there this weekend for a cousin’s wedding, literally, for almost exactly 25 hours. It was a quick trip, leaving early Saturday morning, and heading out at

Weekly Check In: A Weekend Full of Weapons

It’s my friend Eric’s bachelor party this weekend.  I’ve been very excited about it ever since plans for what it was going to entail have been formalized. Eric is one of my more docile friends, so I was a bit surprised to see how aggressive the weekend was going to be. We’re going ax throwing

A Murphy’s Law Labor Day Weekend

I had a really awesome PA-centric Labor Day weekend roadtrip planned for this past holiday, gearing up to  explore western/central PA, and four PA state parks I’ve had on my bucketlist for a while now. What happened? I ended up essentially spending over 12 hours in the car, to spend less than 24 hours in

A Fall Drive

I approach travel and writing in the same manner. I’m planned. I’m measured. I map, and I plot things out. 9 out of 10 times, this comes in handy when I’m doing trips of both the day, and the longer variety. There are times though, that I feel it becomes, well, maybe stifling is a

Weekly Check In: 5 Things I’m Obsessed With Today

It’s been a bit since I’ve updated on here. The weak excuses? I was sick, work’s been busy, AND I’ve been traveling a lot on weekends, and getting in late Sundays (Sunday nights are big blogging times for me).  I’m consistently impressed with those who can churn out content everyday, make it look more professional

Stroudsburg, PA

I’ve been to Stroudsburg PA plenty of times over the years.  I had few good friends who went to ESU, and have very fond memories of attending a few parties at my one buddy’s apartment above the Sherman Theater on main street.  I’ve driven through Stroudsburg more than I’ve actually been in town, especially when

Weekly Check In: A New Lobster Roll Experience

I haven’t really checked in on a weekly basis, because somehow this August became BUSY. The fact that the month is almost over is surprising and upsetting. I finally thought I’d have a chance this week to get some posts I’ve been working on churned out, but this really might just be it. I spent

Lancaster City is Cool

I’m going to make the bold statement that at the moment, Lancaster is 100% the coolest city in Pennsylvania…that no one’s ever heard of. Hear me out.  Whenever I tell people I used to live in Lancaster, the most common reaction still is to ask if I lived by the Amish. Most people are surprised

A Small Taste of Bethlehem

It took great restraint to not title this post, “Oh Little Town of Bethlehem,” and I’m proud of myself for showing that restraint. So, this past weekend, I spent just a little bit of time in Bethlehem, PA, which, if you aren’t familiar, is located in the Lehigh Valley just off both 22, and 78,
