I was interested in going back to the Harley plant in York PA again for their free tour. Short drive for me so I thought I'd take a friend and off we'd go for a morning tour. WRONG. On line I still see the "Steel Toe" tour advertised for $38 but the free tour will be no more after August 31st. . And beginning September 2nd the free tour will now be ten bucks. HD must have really fallen on hard times.

I enjoyed the HD Tour in 2011 but at the time I was strictly a Harley Guy .. While still hoping HD will succeed for the simple reason it carries an American brand in Name anyway but no Ride is strictly made in any one country that I know of anyway .. Just not sure if this is a good move by them, but only time will tell if it is .. $10.00 sure won't break the bank if truly want to see it .. If went back to Gettysburg again a Trip I truly enjoyed might pay the $10.00 if others I happened to be with wanted to do so ..

I didn't know anything was free nowadays, usually you have to pay for everything now. I think they just wizened up and decided to get in on the action, no doubt they can probably use the money.

A tour of the Hoover Dam is priced like a trip to Disneyland.

$10 to park your car and you'll need to keep your wallet open from that point on...

Back in the 90's, the first time I visited, it was all free...you could enjoy a day at the dam and spend nothing. Now it's an arm and a leg and WAY TOO MANY PEOPLE....geesh was I shocked...the rip off pricing, the crowds...I'll never see it again.

Las Vegas...sigh...I feel sorry for anyone that didn't frequent Vegas in the 90's...it was a great place...now, wow, what a mess...TOO MANY PEOPLE and everything is ridiculously expensive. Back in those days, there were casino's with parking lots out front, pull up, park, walk in...$2.99 steak and lobster at the Stardust...99 cent one pound hot dogs that would have you barfing at the 8oz mark...lol...they were good times. The wife and I could fly out for 3 days, have a great time for ~$400 total...airfair, hotel, food, everything...$400 gets you 2 nights in a decent hotel today and man is food pricey in the casino's...WOW!

$10 to see the Harly plant...ok, maybe...around here, they have shows (RV's, Home and Garden, Wedding, etc.) and they charge $10 to come in and look! WTH? They want $50 for wife and three kids just to walk through the door...they're nuts.
