I took my son who's 11 and my nephew who's 16 on a little road trip last Thursday thru Monday. We went to the Mid-Atlantic Air Museum WW2 weekend in Reading on Friday. My son is a huge WW2 fan. He's interested in anything relating to WW2. Being a boy though as you can imagine he loves the planes, tanks, guns, etc. Here's a few of pics.
We headed over to Gettysburg on Saturday and spent Saturday and Sunday there. We needed a couple more days at Gettysburg. We walked Pickett's charge from Seminary Ridge across to Cemetery Ridge from the Virginia Memorial to the copse of trees. I think it made an impression on the boys. Here's a picture looking down from Little Round Top across the Valley of Death and Bloody Run to the Devils Den.
You can take the woodworker out of the workshop but you can't take the tree lust out of the woodworker! This is a tulip poplar at the national cemetery. I used Lucas for scale. He's right at 5' tall. The next one is a cypress burl Finally here's a burl on a red oak, it was a good 4' across!
This was my first time to PA. It's a beautiful place, it reminds me of Middle Tennessee.
