The author describes his first summers in Pennsylvania as he and his family camped out near enough to his grandparents' house that they could do their laundry and take showers there. He describes Northeastern Pennsylvania during the late 1970s. He notes that the region had evolved into a center for factory outlets, to which busloads of retirees and bargain-hunters flocked from all across the mid-Atlnatic. He details the products produced in that area. He tells of the new important skill he learned when he participated in Boy Scout activities.

Keywords:   Pennsylvania, grandparents, Northeastern Pennsylvania, 1970s, factory outlets, retirees, bargain-hunters, Boy Scout
