2015 PACE Christmas Party

A good crowd of PACErs turned out for the annual Christmas party at the Great American Saloon in Red Lion. The evening was kicked off with some socializing followed by a nice dinner buffet. After dinner the crazy gift exchange was hosted by Joe Golesh. This years gifts must have been better than usual because there wasn't a lot of swapping. We saw lots of car care products, wine bottles, craft gifts and even a Miata salt & pepper shaker set. Everyone left with a gift and a full stomach. Merry Christmas.

Joanna Furnace Drive


Even though we got rained out we enjoyed an adventurous ride. With the weather being iffy and Lynn not feeling well Jerry decided to still be our fearless leader to Joanna's Furnace. We first encountered a run which had us driving like the English on the wrong side of the road for several miles. Bob Braider said it was the first time a horse and buggy ever passed him. We finally got some momentum when we hit road construction. For another several miles we had newly surfaced macadam while the road crew admired our cars. Once we got to Joanna's Furnace it began to rain so plan B went into effect. Breakfast at a cozy little restaurant in Morgantown. All in all it was one of the best runs with great fellowship.

Baltimore County Horse Farm Tour

On a perfect day of top-down weather, 16 PACE cars drove through some back country roads of Baltimore County where many large estates and scenic horse farms are located. After the drive tasty meals were enjoyed at Carrabba's Italian Restaurant. Thanks to Hershel & Linda Wellman, first time drive leaders, for planning a great ride.

Mystery Drive - 2015 Edition


Nineteen PACE member cars joined Sandy and Joe Golesh for a trip to the unknown. The weather was absolutely perfect, sunny, puffy clouds, a slight breeze and hot but not to hot. The drive was about 60 miles and the roads were all 2 lane. The guessing got a little freaky at times but NO ONE was able to come up with the correct destination Kings Gap State Park. Sitting astride South Mountain, Kings Gap offers a panaramic view of the Cumberland Valley. Sixteen miles of hiking trails interconnect three main areas and are open year-round. Kings Gap offers environmental education programs from the pre-school environmental awareness program to environmental problem solving programs. The park was once a privately owned summer home The 32 room mansion was erected in 1908 by James McCormick Cameron as a summer home. After Mr. Cameron's death in 1949 C. H. Masland and Son carpet company purchased the property and the surrounding 1,430 acres. Masland refurbished the mansion adding carpet, wallpaper and new furnishings. The building, then called the "Masland Guest House," was used as accommodations for potential clients and as a training site for employees and sales representatives. As commercial overnight accommodations became available in the Carlisle area for business meetings it was no longer necessary or feasible to operate Kings Gap. The company made the decision to seek a buyer for the property. Working through The Nature Conservancy, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania acquired the mansion and 1,430 acres of land in 1973. The environmental education center opened in 1977 and the training center opened in 1980. In 1991, the training center was renamed in honor of William C. Forrey, retiring director of the Pennsylvania Bureau of State Parks. Mr. Forrey served as Bureau Director from 1973 through 1991 and was instrumental in acquisition and growth of Kings Gap. We were there primarily for THE MUSIC ON THE MOUNTAIN event that featured 2 blue grass bands for the afternoon and evening. We drove, we arrived, we parked, we ate, we chatted and we listened. Judging from the comments at the event and e-mails since everyone enjoyed being fooled by the MYSTERY.

Johnstown Overnight Adventure, AKA The Johnstown Hill Climb

Seventeen cars gathered the morning of Friday May 1 for a great day of driving the 2 lane to Johnstown over the Allegheny Mountains and a stop at The Flight 93 National Park Site. The greatest excitement for the group proved to be the "hill climb" to the top of the Johnstown Incline Plane using the narrow bumpy streets. The Incline was out of service after a state inspection for wire rope replacement. Inspite of some tense moments everyone arrived safely and enjoyed a great dinner at Asiagos with a great view of the valley below and the city of Johnstown. We even celebrated birthdays for Lynne Long and Bonnie Evans but no ages will be mentioned. Saturday morning dawned bright and sunny and featured stops at The Johnstown Flood Memorial National Park Site and The Allegheny Portage Railroad National Park Site. The drive home was back through the Allegheny Mountains on a different route and featured many opportunities for enjoying the great handling of the cars.

Another great day. The River Run was spectacular and the weather was perfect. We had 26 cars, split into two groups which allowed us to keep a brisk pace going.

Thanks go out to Joe & Sandy Golesh and Bill and Janet Anderson for being drive leaders. Thanks also to the Braders and Evans for being tails.

See you all again the next time!
