"vacation" part 2
Tuesday morning: Phillip removes hardware and broken things from van. Quail and poop tarp air out in empty lot by motel. Search internet and make phone calls in search of van replacement parts (highest priority read window). Motel maintenance worker recommends Harry's U-Pull and Phillip finds a couple vans on their lot in West Hazleton that might have some pieces we need.
rest of Tuesday: Drive to Harry's U-Pull in West Hazleton and Phillip searches for a couple hours through one of the largest junkyards ever. He has a semi- successful haul - no window though. It's nearing dark and we're contemplating camping but gratefully stay at a friend's house in Tamaqua instead. We cook supper on the grill and the quail and Hannah love the backyard.
Wednesday morning: Enjoy Tamaqua's downtown, go to laundromat, where Phillip works on the van in the parking lot. Then he gets sick. So he goes to bed. Anna Lisa finds a barely-used bike at an excellent local bike store.
Tuesday afternoon: Phillip gets some crackers and Sprite down and we go for a walk. Tamaqua is lovely and kind.
We head for the Allentown location of Harry's U-Pull and strike out. We try to get to the Pennsburg branch, too, but realize it's impossible. So we go to Jim Thorpe to stroll. Then back to Tamaqua for Luigi's pizza and salad, which are as good as they say! Tomorrow, perhaps, we'll camp on this camping vacation?

sorry you didn't make it to Pennsburg :-(. And that Allentown was a strike-out :-(.

It seems that it is a small town, but I have to say that the scenery is amazing. It is a hassle that your van was broken. Your husband even got sick for fixing it and I think he must have overworked himself that is why he felt ill. The bike doesn't even look like it was used and it will be really great to stroll around the town with it. I am tempted with the pizza place you have gone to.
