On The Road to Baltimore
As I had planned (HERE), I had a day of rest in York yesterday, still in Pennsylvania. It gave me a good chance to rest up after three days of pulling my wagon down the road, and I’m glad that I did because they have a great fire museum here. It’s in an old firehouse that was built over 100 years ago and they have all kinds of neat stuff in there. They even have a working fire alarm system where you can pull the handle on the street box and watch it send the signal to the telegraph machine at the alarm center. I couldn’t reach the handle, so the nice man there held me up so that I could.
And you can’t stop in York without visiting the Harley-Davidson factory. I really liked the factory tour where I got to see them putting the fine machines together. I took one for a test drive, but it turns out that you’re not allowed to do that. Ha! I really had them wound up for a while!
Ok…I’m back on the road today, heading due south into Baltimore and should be there tomorrow. I’ll let you know when I get there.
You can catch up on F. G. Gnome’s previous reports HERE. He’s on his way to Baltimore where he will be meeting many of his friends at the Firehouse Expo this week.
