I did that too the first time; Ended up putting my pin in Lancaster, England. Um, can't say I've ever even been there. Go to the pin you set up, click on it, and there's a "delete" option (I think). You can remove it entirely. Then when you do it again, pay attention.

I love PA, I'm taking my son hiking this weekend to Little buffalo state park...never been there, you should go, it's GORGEOUS.

I'm sad to say if our son's asthma doesn't start doing better we will need to leave PA behind, we're in central PA and are in the top 10 WORST ari quality zones of the country.

Annette you are a bit distant.

I am also from NE PA. Where abouts are you??? I am in Susquehanna County. It is beyond GORGEOUS here in the mountains with all of the leaves that have changed color. I am so in love with NE PA right now. It is just beyond breath taking!!!

Hey, I'm originally from Lancaster! Maybe I should go stick a pin there too.

Methinks you're a bit pin-obsessed.

I'm just lonely, with no pin buddies here.

I'm going to be in Lancaster this weekend. Anyone want to give me an excuse to escape? :

Oh cool! Where in Lancaster? What are you doing? I live right in the city. Escape as in "meet up?"

My birthday is Saturday. I was thinking of hiding in a cave, taking a hot bath in *silence*, and eating half of a cake.

That would be cool. We're staying with my in-laws in Lititz, but DH said I could escape on Sunday (we're going to the Philly Zoo on Saturday).

I grew up in Lancaster city, on Lemon Street.

Cool! I work at the synagogue across from the hospital on Duke Street, and I live off of Hazel, in the 8th Ward.

Are you thinking about going anywhere in particular?

ETA: Happy birthday, Rynna! Need help with the other half? Are we meeting about Earth Scouts? I don't think I heard back.

OK girls I have tears in my eyes. I grew up in PA. Bangor to be exact. Just south of the Poconos and Just north of the Lehigh Valley. I moved to Asheville, NC because of the awesome vibe here:::... Now we are realizing that we have to move back to PA and I am even more anxious to get on with the move after reading this thread. I always here such bad things about PA. People badmouth it and I must admit I have said some not-so-nice things about PA myself. (sorry pennsylvania I take it all back. I miss it. I am homesick. I want to meet up with some of you mamas when I get back up there. :

I'm in Brodheadsville, about 20 minutes from Stroudsburg, East Stroudsburg, Wind Gap, Bangor... pretty much everywhere is 20-25 minutes from me. LOL. I grew up all over the Pocono's, finally settling in Stroudsburg, where I went to middle and high school. Then, after I married, we moved to the good ol' West End. Nice to "meet" you all!!

I live in Philly but have driven through most of the state and love it here, especially at this time of year!

The leaves are goregous, the kids make big piles and jump in and yesterday, a little girl at my son's school even make herself a leaf boquet. It was beautiful!

Take care!

Still missing PA, two years after I moved away! If you are lucky enough to live there, go check out the state parks. We stayed in several cabins for weekend getaways. They are awesome and sooo cheap.

Another new york transplant here who loves pa. We're in Philly and looking for fun daytrips to get us out of the city with 3 kids (4, 2 and 5 days--obviously not going anywhere right this minute).

We've been to Longwood Gardens but haven't explored any state parks which I'd like to do. Suggestions?

Thanks, J

I : PA too! I've lived here (Philly suburbs) all my life, well except for the six years I lived in Scranton during college.

jgale, I'd start with Fairmount Park right in the city! I believe it's the largest city park in the country! Fort Washington state park is also nice; it has an observation deck to watch hawks and other prey-type birds that come around. HTH!

jgale, come to Lancaster! Lots of history and fun stuff to do, and you can take your kiddos to the Strasburg railroad and on a buggy ride and stuff.

I cannot believe you are from Norwood...so am I. Wow, that is crazy. I live in Drexel Hill now, but I grew up in Norwood and started moving around after high school. How old are you?
