100 Things to do in Pennsylvania

100 Things to do In Pennsylvania: This is a big one.  I mentioned in my 100th post that I was thinking of using it as a “100 things to do in PA” blog but then thought better of it A) because it just seemed like a sad things to do B) because I wanted to get

My 100th Post

I’ve been thinking over the past few weeks what I should devote my 100th post to.  I kicked around “100 things to do in Pennsylvania,” but ultimately that felt a little cliché, and long (although I did start working on this for my 101st or 102nd or 103rd post).  I thought about a retrospective of everything

The Northern Tier Experience

I’m in NEPA this weekend for a good friends’ wedding.  I’m pumped for the wedding (the reception is in Scranton) but also exicted to be visiting NEPA during one of my favorite times of the year. Since it’s where I’m currently based, a large majority of my posts deal with the southeastern portion of PA, and I realized I have to give

An Argument for Cross Country Skiing

You may have picked up that I’m a big fan and advocate of Cross Country Skiing.  I seem to be the minority here.   Cross Country (or XC Ski,whatever you prefer) skiing, while wildly popular in Europe and Canada, has never really picked up steam here in the U.S.   It’s like the soccer of winter sports. Essentially cross country skiing

PICNIC SEASON

“What do you like better, Christmas or Wedding Season?”  “The answer would be, um, Picnic Season?” Picnic season in NEPA is a big deal.  It’s a dying deal, but still a big deal nonetheless, and something that, to me, defines summertime and growing up. Every summer, for as long as I can remember, weekends were dominated

Peach Music Festival

More to add to the Summer 2012 to do list. One of my favorite summer activity is concerts in the lawn section at Montage Mountain. In fact, I used to have personal policy that if I new at least two songs and the tickets were under $30.00, I’d go just for the hell of it.

Heading North

I’m gearing up for a Brothwell family “winter-fun” trip to Lake Placid this weekend and hoping global warming doesn’t royally screw up our plans. I love the idea of a ski trip.   I like the whole ski-town atmosphere.  I like winter sports, and I love bar hopping in the snow.  Unfortunately I do not downhill

Arlo’s: Susquehanna County’s One Stop Mall

Now I’m a snow guy and usually start getting annoyed when it’s still nice out later in late fall. However, I couldn’t help but enjoy the warm Thanksgiving break we just had. Snow would have put a damper on my Turkey Eve plans and I got two tennis sessions in which is all but unheard

A Scrantastic Weekend Getaway: Things to Do in Scranton

I spent four years living and five years going to school in Scranton. I’m still mildly obsessed with my experience at The University of Scranton and will leave you with that disclaimer before continuing with the rest of this post. I remember once during my tenure at Scranton, a bunch of us were out and
