The first of our summer trips included a scenic drive along Pennsylvania's historic Lincoln Highway to Fort Ligonier and then to Flight 93 National Memorial.

Many Pittsburghers are familiar with the Lincoln Highway (U.S. Route 30), but did you know the highway started out as a dirt road cleared by early American settlers in the 1700s? After crossing the Delaware the road sprawled westward to Fort Ligonier. From there, a segment called the Forbes Road reached from Ligonier to Fort Duquesne which is now marked at Point State Park in Pittsburgh.

After weeks of planning, the Charlotte Prime Times held their annual picnic at Park Road Park on Saturday, May 19. The weather forecast had been bad all week, calling for thunderstorms. However, the guys lucked out, and the weather for the picnic was great—not too hot or cold and no rain. Dennis, John, and Sam fired up the grills about 10:30 a.m. and grilled hamburgers, brats, and wieners, ready for serving at noon. Sixty-five members and guests assembled by noon, bringing delicious potluck dishes and mouth-watering desserts. After the meal, some played croquet, cornhole, and horseshoes, while others simply walked around the lake. Another group played Dominoes with a formation that looked like a large city freeway. Thanks to all who worked hard to make the picnic a success.

On May 19th, ten Prime Timers Chattanooga rode the Tennessee Valley Railroad Hiwassee Excursion train from Etowah, Tennessee round trip. Our destination was Copperhill, Tennessee, which is a historic copper mining town in the beautiful East Tennessee mountains. It turned into a real adventure. A few miles into the trip, the train encountered a fallen tree on the tracks. The crew sawed it up and we were on our way after an hour's delay. A few more miles further and now climbing the mountain, a large boulder was blocking the rails and was impossible to move, so the train had to back down the mountain.
