    Creamery is definitely worth a notch or two on the old belt buckle. I'm in the process of dropping some weight and just driving by the place every morning adds about five pounds. I'm drooling on my keyboard just thinking about Peachy Paterno (ice cream, not Joe)...

    Give me a holler if/when you plan a ride up.

    Meyer's Dairy on S. Atherton St (US 322 Bus). It's a local family business and very good.

    Weather permitting - and assuming the head honcho approves time and funding, I'm thinking I need one more weekend outing.

    Terrance and all, how does the weekend of 11/13 look for you? PSU has an away game so there should be reasonably priced hotel rooms for a night. Great ride, a little ice cream? I haven't read the article yet in Rider Magazine but I hear there is a BBQ place mentioned in Happy Valley.

    Who's up for it? (I'll start working on permission!)

    As a South Carolinian transplanted to Pennsylvania, BBQ is in my blood (not to mention my arteries). I have been on a decade-long quest to find Carolina quality BBQ in Pennsylvania and so far have failed. I had high hopes for Doan's Bones near Whipple Dam south of State College, but was disappointed.

    That rant out of the way, there are some exquisite rides around there. Here are a few of my favorite stretches of road.

    I'd heartily recommend the Elk Creek Cafe in Milheim for lunch. Boxer's Cafe in Huntington and Denny's in Clearwater (not the chain) are also fun.

    I rest my case. You might add shoe fly pie to that list of abominations, but at least it makes good spackle.

    I don't know if it will sate your epicurian tastes, but in Grazerville right outside of Tyrone is Clems BBQ. Yummmmmmm Tyrone is my hometown and I get a dose of Clems as often as possible

    "Abominations" is a pretty strong term from someone lusting for cheap pork swimming is corn syrup and ketchup. But, then again, we all are entitled to our odd preferences.

    BBQ only comes into proximity of ketchup in the less civilized regions west of I 77. Corn syrup never. Here's an educational video.

    When I make BBQ for my Pennsylvania neighbors, I start the fire at 2:30 AM to have it ready for a 6 PM eating. I look at it as cultural missionary work, the equivalent of 19th century explorers teaching the natives to cover their nakedness. I normally use a whole pork shoulder weighing around 15 lbs. I order it from a country butcher shop who gets it directly from Lancaster County farms. They wrap the big pink hunk of meat in plastic and I bungee it to my luggage rack for the ride home. If I ever get in an accident while doing that I can imagine the police saying to my wife, "Mrs. Bottom--we have some bad news. The ambulance crew picked him up but there was a part left over and they don't know where it goes."
