Grab the wheel and coast through 10 of Bucks County’s 12 remaining covered bridges. Step back in time on this scenic covered bridge tour with 19th century bridges ranging from 56 feet to 150 feet long. Circling through beautiful Bucks County, the tour is planned so you can start at any one of the notable bridges. We began our journey at Washington Crossing, and now have a new place to spend the day as it has so many things to see and do with relatively no cost, as you can self tour and take your time going about the area looking at things that may interest you more than someone else. I will say this, we began the tour at 2:30 as the time frame for driving this tour was 1 hour and 34 minutes this did not account for stopping to take photos or to look at the scenery around, we were only able to do half of the tour before it got dark, so we will continue the tour and there will be a part 2 to this blog.
I did a bit of research on each bridge and was able to convey this information to my companions on the trip. I have to mention this, bring some snacks, drinks and a picnic, as we found no food or convenience stores on our way except 1, now I will say this, I did find one convenience store in Carversville, we pulled up next to another couple who also just arrived doing the same tour, and entered the business... the couple was assisted right off the bat, I was ignored, and waited 15 minutes patiently as we were all in need of drinks... after 15 minutes I left. They had 5 workers working, and all of them made eye contact and then just walked away from me.... I can only surmise that they were offended that I was wearing both a Superman shirt and a Captain America hoodie.... The other patrons, looked at the counter woman and said, are you going to help her, and she looked at me and walked away...needless to say we all left. Back on the road, we got pleasantly surprised by pulling up to a small bridge and finding 6 turkey hens and a crane chilling. we pulled to the side and they all got startled and took off, I was able to get a few shots of the crane, photos to follow later. Frankenfield Bridge is where you get to take a break and have a picnic by the Tinicum Creek. There are wonderful places on the side of the road to stop at as well as a open field. They are also refurbishing the Mill there as well. Great place to stop and hang out for a while, a few historical things to do there. This was where we ended our tour as time was leaving us. My companions and I loved this tour and can't wait to finish the winter tour so that we can redo the tour in the summer as we know the scenery will change the whole atmosphere of the drive. No matter if you do this tour with just adults or you do it as a family, you can assured that this will be fun, the kids will love the scenery and you can make a game of finding the differences in each bridge, as well as looking for wildlife and flora of the area.
I love to play RPG's it's actually one of my favorite things to do, I have not got to do much of it in the past few months nor have I had the chance to DM any either. I have tho in my past plays, be fortunate....maybe fortunate is a strong word....I have been thrust upon playing with a Elf...now...now before you lose your panties and begin crying...know I love to play an Elf myself. They are probably one of the most versatile races to play with a wide range of options in build...with that being said...
I hate sleeping in the same shelter, cave, house, tavern or tree for that matter! It seems that every time I happen to go to sleep with a Elf in my troop, I get swallowed by a Gelatinous Cube...I fall into the Fey Wilds, I wake inside a Magical Tree....or some Djinn has made his/her way into our fold....
Don't get me wrong, I love the race and play a Elf in one campaign...it is never the campaign I am in that gets us thrown into so hellish rebuke from humming some song.... (glares over at best friend who just got us eaten by a gelatinous cube)... Elves are so much fun to play and with so many sub-races you can just about take on anything you want!
Things are not always so hard during my play... I honestly think my best friend and the DM enjoy this singing Wizard!!!!!! What is it that Metallica Sings....Sleep with one eye open....if there is a Elf in the group....make sure you do!
Star Trek™ Panic®, a new out-of-this-world board game that merges the classic tower defense style play of the Panic® series with the most iconic elements of the original Star Trek™ universe.
Star Trek™ Panic® boldly goes where no one has gone before as players join the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise on a voyage to defend the ship from enemy attacks and carry out five vital galactic missions.
This cooperative light strategy game introduces new, never before seen, Panic® game mechanics, including Mission Cards, which feature unique challenges based on the original Star Trek™ series,
as well as Character Cards, so players can assume the roles of Star Trek icons like Captain Kirk and Mr. Spock.
Star Trek™ Panic® comes complete with a maneuverable U.S.S. Enterprise model ship, Shields, Damage and Destroyed Indicators, Mission Cards, Character Cards, Enterprise Cards, and more.
This is a nice addition to the Panic line by Fireside Games, I enjoy when the game adds a new mechanic. Star Trek Panic doesn't disappoint, not only does this game add all of my favorite characters and missions, it has a great twist. My friends and I have enjoyed this version so much. Grab some friends and play a great co-op game! I have a couple suggestions...1. Keep the ship together as its cardboard and it rubs the paper off on the pieces, as well as tears the paper. 2. Sleeve the cards as they will see loads of play!
A place to jot down my thoughts and ideas. I hope you enjoy what I have to share.
