For those stuck with a "Staycation" because of high gas and food prices (and
well rested after enjoying our June 31 trip on the Phoebe Snow earlier in
the week), let us take a trip to Lake Ariel -- watch the excursion trains
from Scranton, such the one sponsored by St Luke's Church Episcopal with
1500 kids for a picnic . . .
The only untoward inscident involved a guy who got on the train in Hoboken
and went to sleep -- and woke up when the conductor called "Maplewood" --
who looked out the window and started yelling that the engineer had steered
the train to the wrong Maplewood.
Note that the Erie Road to Summerland map conveniently gets rid of all those
other pesky railroads that would surely lead one astray to far less pleasure
and scenic beauty.
BTW -- there's also a note that passengers mght wish to consider shipping
their auto os freight, so that it will be available in their summer digs.
