Off to Howe's Cavern for the long weekend

Just made reservations at Hide-A-Way Campsites a few miles from the cavern. Will report next week!

Cavern's are cool. Literally, they are nice to visit in the hot summer months.

Everyone should keep in mind that, when they advertise vacation plans, that they are posting that their house may be empty and unattended for x number of days.

This is not to different than posting email addresses and phone number on-line, everyone is watching, including the bad guys.

It won't be cool this weekend, but we've never been, and figured now was as good a time as any. Will bring warm clothes and rain gear.

Don't forget to try the cheese! It's the only reason my son wants to go there again.

I am an inveterate cheese lover Kevin. What, right at Howe's Cavern? Or is there a cheese factory nearby I don't know about?

Thanks! Now I'm getting excited!

They age the cheese in the cave, the tour guide will show you where. You can buy it in the shop at the visitor center. Between that and the smoked cheese from Hogback Mountain in VT, it's a toss-up to see which disappears faster around here! I still don't eat a lot of animal products, but cheese is my weakness, and vegan cheese is an abomination. We have a local Amish cheesemaker, their horseradish cheddar is my favorite snack with a couple of big-boy sodas on a Friday night.

I wish there was an Amish cheesemaker around here! We used to live in St. Lawrence County in northern NY, and the Amish had a plant there that we could get fresh curds from. Yum, yum!

We'll probably do the cavern Sunday. We can't check in till 1, so we'll get prepared Saturday a.m. (the trailer needs to get washed badly!), then take our time and mosey over. It's about an hour's drive from where we live.

Thanks!

Frank

I would agree. Forgive my "French" (and ignorance and thread drift) but what the hell is "Vegan Cheese" if I dare ask? One might presume it only comes from milk from vegan cows?

Frank, if you're ever headed down 81, exit 230 in PA (just over the border), on the east side of SR 11, just south of the exit is a grocery store called Rob's Market. They carry the Leraysville cheese, block and curds. Easy to get to if you're passing through. Also in the same plaza is Tedeschi's Restaurant, pretty good Italian food if you need a meal.

We do head down I-81 from time to time, and I will file this info away. In fact, it may call for a special trip, as cheese curd is not found around the Albany area.

Thanks!

Frank
