Lost my car in Hershey, too

Your intrepid reporter lost her car in the lot for the first and only time in her showgoing history.

Aud,

So funny to read that. I remember wandering around for a good hour or so after an unbelievable show in Hershey back in '85 looking for my friend's very large, very yellow station wagon.

The best was the next day. There was a day-off between Hershey and the Merriwether shows and everyone woke up in Chocolatetown, USA staring at Hersheypark. The whole place was divided in half between the freaks and the families worried about the freaks. I bet they sold more chocolate that day than any one since. While riding the monorail, they were running ads for the park's other attractions including their zoo which had the slogan, "Discover the wonders of nature." Half the monorail car finished that line for them in unison.
