The central event of this weekend was the Tough Mudder race at Bear Creek Ski Center, just south of Allentown/Bethlehem in Pennsylvania. We wanted to take advantage of our presence in this neck of the woods and explore a bit. On our list were:
- Miller Trailer Sales in Perkasie (Friday)
- Lost River Cave in Hellertown (Friday)
- Slovak Cemetery in Bethlehem (Friday)
- Tough Mudder Race at Bear Creek (Saturday)
- Biking on the Lehigh Gorge Rail Trail (Sunday)
Our first stop was the Miller Trailer Sales Dealership in Perkasie, PA. Some time our friend Andy sent me a link to a manufacturer of small, economical (and aerodynamic) trailers, called Little Guy. This concept appealed to us quite a bit (we wanted the R/T model), mostly because of the small size and low weight (and relatively low price). Also, this is the closest dealership to us and pretty much on the way to Allentown. We met with Patsy who was super nice and gave us a pretty in-depth tour of all models they had in stock - even though it was raining quite heavily at times. We have since abandoned the idea of buying a trailer (after a string of unbeatable arguments made by my father over skype) - albeit a mini one but that is a topic for another day and another blog post. I was also hoping to spend the rest of the day geocaching in the nearby Peace Valley Nature Center but the heavy rain took care of that.
The rain showed no signs of stopping and we had some spare time, so we headed over to the Lost River Caverns in Hellertown, PA. We got there just in time for the 5PM tour. The cave was ... well .... interesting. The entrance hall to the caverns is awesomely fascinating.
