USY on Wheels, Bus A

August 7, 2013

The group toured Philly today and learned a lot about the history of this amazing city. Later in the evening, the group had their banquet and final night together to reminisce on their time on the Wheels. It is hard to believe that the summer is over and Wheels has come to an end! The group had an amazing summer on the road and they are left with countless pictures, memories, and friendships that will last a life time. Thank you to all of our Wheelniks and Staff for an incredible summer!

Today, Bus A toured Intercourse Pretzel Factory and got the chance to become professional pretzel twisters. After that, they ventured to Herr’s factory to see exactly how potato chips are made. Their evening program consisted of meeting up with the other buses at Bounce U, which is filled with bounce houses and inflatable slides! It was a lot of fun for everyone to hangout there and eat dinner.. there was a lot of Wheels love in that place!

Today, Bus A davened shacharit and talked about how to apply what they’ve learned in prayer this summer back at home in their own synagogues. Later on, the group had a wonderful rest of their day in D.C visiting the Holocaust Museum and the Newseum, which showcases the history of news and journalism. They also took a lot of pictures of all the monuments. The Wheelniks really enjoyed that visit! Later on, they went to the National Mall and had some free time. Then, they ate a delicious dinner and called it a night! Great day for Bus A!

Sunday was spent traveling all the way from Charlotte to Washington D.C! The Wheelniks  had the opportunity to play their favorite bus games and just hang out on their home away from home for one of the last times this summer. When they finally arrived, they settled into their hotels, relaxed a little bit, and got ready for the Bus A Talent Show! Everyone had so much fun and it was the perfect way to spend their evening.

Happy Wednesday from Bus A! After shacharit,eating breakfast, and making lunches, the group was headed to Atlanta! It was a pretty long bus ride, and the Wheelniks loved having time to sit and chat or play bus games with everyone! When they arrived, they settled into their hotel and got ready to go out to the ballgame! They were able to witness the Atlanta Braves beating the Rockies. So fun!
