My next leg in my travels was to head a bit north to Mercer, PA. where I stayed in a large Rv park there.
In the 1980's I worked for a company who was building a new manufacturing plant in Sharon, PA. and I decided to visit it. Got lucky and found one guy that I had hired when I was working for them. I took a plant tour which was very interesting. Remembering when the plant was a concrete slab and now seeing it full of equipment and having expanded was quite a sight.
While in Mercer, Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans and I stayed longer than I had planned watching the news as things developed down there. The storm rolled right over me as it worked it's way north and I had to wait it out before moving on.
