It turned out more logical to stay at the motel for two nights in a row, to save the time for searching for another one again. America's Best Value Inn, well not exactly.
Ate breakfast at a quaint restaurant acros the street. This morning I had to get minor car repairs. My hood latch was loose, and a fuse was blown. On top of that I decided there was still just too much stuff in my car and had to mail more home. While waiting for my car I found a foot locker at KMart. The car repair was unusually fast, and inexpensive. They didn't bother to try and tell me I needed hundreds of dollars worth of other repairs the way mechanics do. I left feeling as if I'd forgotten something. After that I mailed home my footlocker, which also seemed much easier to mail than the others I sent off before my road trip began.
I still made it to Hersheypark very early, and alhtough my road trip was primarily to visit theme parks, this was the only one where I was able to stay the entire day. I have three videos posted here, part of the Chocolate World ride, Fahrenheit, and the Wildcat
This is an excellent park, also a hundred years old. It has eleven rollercoasters, including a wild mouse that you board while the cars are moving. They even have a place called Chocolate world with a long cheesy ride about chocolate as well as a trolley through town. At first I thought the tour was going to go through the actual chocolate focatory itself, but they drove around town while two actors told all about the history of Milton Hershey and the city and pretty much described the city as utopian.
