I can’t say I’m fully versed in all the political shenanigans involved in getting such a thing off the ground, but I do think that it would be very cool to be able to ride the train to commute to York or Lancaster. Check out the proposed route.
Of course, it would probably be a whole lot cheaper to improve the bus service around here first. (Dreadful website design aside) as far as I’m aware, there are no bike racks on any of the busses, and the busses stop running around 7:00PM. This makes them pretty much useless to those of us taking night classes at Penn State Harrisburg.
I wonder how many drunks could be kept off the streets by having the busses make a 2:00AM run along 2nd street.
As the summer of 2005 draws to a close, the time has come for us to witness greatest display of athletic competition know to man or beast.
The 27th annual Falmouth Goat Races are nearly upon us!
That’s right! Mark your calendars today!

Using my mad google-fu skillz, I was able to discover an official flyer (in PDF format) for this year’s festivies.
Long-time fans of my blog will recall that I attended last year’s goat race to celebrate my first month as a non-smoker. I guess this year, it will be to celebrate my 13th month.
I got on one of the exericise bikes last night, and got bored pretty quickly. So, I decided to try out one of those elliptical machines today.
Holy crap. I was done after 5 minutes on level 1 (the easiest setting). I’m already getting sore.
My internet access will be disconnected soon, and I’m not sure when I’ll be back online. Next week, hopefully.
This one won’t be happening… no central air. That’s a dealbreaker.
Always two there are, no more, no less: a master and an apprentice.
This guy has a blog like mine, except with better writing and more pictures. He’s commuting in Minneapolis!
Apparently, not eveyone thought the idea of dropping a goat was as cool as I did, because when we got to Falmouth, there was NOBODY THERE! I took a picture of the flagpole (I tried to get a picture of the goat, but the lighting was all wrong). So, we went to Mechanicsburg and watched the first ever wrench dropping.
If you missed the excitement, you can download an mpeg of the wrench drop. Be warned, it’s a 25MB file.
