The Open Road

Some Amish folks on their way home from church

One evening last year on a whim, in which there may or may not have been alcohol involved, my brother-in-law purchased a Groupon for his wife, my husband and myself to go on a scooter tour of Lancaster County covered bridges. We were originally scheduled to take the tour last fall, but it happened to be during hurricane Sandy. Needless to say it was cancelled, and this Sunday my husband, brother and sister-in-law and I finally cashed it in.

I seriously want a scooter now – How cute is this?

We had a surprisingly awesome time and the scooters were so much fun to drive. I totally want one now. I also had fun giving the signature “biker wave” to all the legit Harley people that passed us as we cruised the back country roads. I’m sure they were so jealous of how cool we looked.

The scenery was beautiful and it was a perfect, sunny day. We covered about 40 miles throughout the area and stopped at 3 of the only remaining covered bridges of Lancaster County.

Does this horse look pregnant or is it just me?

About half way through the tour, one of the guys in our group got a flat tire and I had to hop on the back of Brad’s scooter, since he had one of the only ones that rode two people. I was pretty bummed, but it ended up being hilarious. We had to go up this huge hill at literally 6 mph top speed. It was just like that scene from Dumb and Dumber. I think a horse and buggy passed us.

All in all it was a pretty great day. I will leave you with a few more pictures. Enjoy!

Happily married, pets, no kids. Relatively boring desk job. I blog to nurture my creativity and have a little fun. I love cooking, taking pictures, and general shenanigans.

  1. Great photos as always! Scooters are legal and plentiful on the roads here in Las Vegas, and no helmet needed as opposed to the big bikes who must wear them. Go figure.

  2. Good post about a fun day! I owned a beautiful shiny red motor scooter many years ago in a little town in PA not far away from Lancaster. The first day I owned it my neighbor’s daughter (about 16 then) asked if she could try it in their backyard. Silly me, sure! I said. She promptly over accelerated and rammed it full speed into their shed 😦 Got a pretty bad burn on her leg which ended up under the motor and the damned thing was never right again (the scooter, not the leg thank goodness!!). Needless to say I sold it soon afterwards. I do remember it being really fun up until then tho, LOL.
