Sad to agree, but time does march on. For me and others as noted above, at 80 years old , I cannot sprint through the gate before dawn, and leave at dark. BUT it is still FUN-FUN-FUN, and I will continue as long as left foot forward, right foot forward is possible.

I've missed Hershey for the past 10 years, but would like to make it back again at least one more time.

Does the town still smell like chocolate?
I've heard they moved production to Mexico.

No chocolate aromatics as I've detected
I think the only things made there are some Reece's ptrodicts and that is a few miles away
This cross the border crap struck again. I don't knowingly buy stuff to eat made out of USA
But I'm sure I get tricked(lied to) often. But I seldom eat candy anyway

The younger generation are not interested in cars. Is it any wonder? Just look at a modern car. Take the badges off one and you can't tell if it is made in Europe or Asia or anywhere else, let alone which brand. Anything that burns fossil fuels is on the nose to the younguns, many of whom do not drive a car and the very thought of owning one is abhorrent to them. As the number of electric cars increases, our cars will become more and more antiquated till buying fuel for them will become a problem. I predict that petrol stations will stat closing within about 20 years. That won't bother most of us but I find it disappointing.
They call it progress and trying to stop it is like trying to stop the tide coming in with a broom. What will hose younguns have to give them the same as we get out of our collector cars?
