English Center Things to Do

  • Pennsylvania Valley Views

    The Pennsylvania wilderness can be an incredible and beautiful place, from the mountains and valleys...

  • Flower

    Spring water constantly seeping through the mountain ground nourishes the foliage well, projecting the forest with alive and vibrant colors.

  • There a caterpillar in the reel

    Then when the little things go on rides with you and, you may jump back and scream, as you go reaching for your gear. No matter, no one can hear you act like a pansy over a little harmless caterpillar.

    Nightlife… Wildlife… Wildlife at night, whatevers… there are no pubs, there are no clubs… there is a keg in the clubhouse that the humans gather around, as the wildlife roam free outside. The bats are difficult to take pictures of, so I guess we’ll settle for a deer.

    Dress Code: If you are going out in the woods at night, protective clothing from the bugs/mosquitoes is always recommended with some good ol fashion DEET.

    You will also feel the cockles of you innards warm as you learn that your buttocks are now resting on the same stool as “The Galloping Ghost” Red Grange, Katherine Hepburn and James Cagney. I am a little disappointed that neither Heather Graham or Will Ferrel as not visited yet.

  • Hillbilly marketing 101

    One cannot count on the locals’ sense of style and taste; at least it fuels my sense of humor. Every boy to man owns a gun, and they all like to kill animals. What they do with the hunted, if left up to the imagination. As you can see, stuffing a black bears, making them look mean, and dressing it up with a handbag and a Charlie Chaplin style hat...

  • Hillbilly marketing 101

    as seen here… placing examples of all the beasts you can slay directly above the guns and ammunition will undoubtedly increase sales. I was able to deduct this by the obscene concentration of pelt and antlers surround this portion of the store.

  • Right of Passage

    For boys, kill’n things with guns is a right of passage. One can cage their self worth and manliness by the size of the fish they catch or by the number of “points” the antler has on the dead deer. This is shown by the number of animals hung in on the walls of homes, bars, restaurants and bathrooms. You may find a jack-o-lope or two if you are...

    Times moves slower here. There’s no TV, no radio, no cell phone reception here. There’s only one choice you have here… and that’s your choice. Enjoy it.

English Center Warnings and Dangers

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In central PA, there is a small town - Morris. This claims fame to the rattlesnake capital of the world. This is also about 25 minutes away from English Center. PA is home to the Timber Rattler. What makes this rattlesnake a little bit more dangerous, is that they do not like to use their rattles till it is too late! They would rather stay still and quiet to let intruders pass…. So watch your step while you are hiking. Ohhh…ya… their pretty well camouflaged too.

    the photo is of two Timber Rattlers "fighting" over a female that is somewhere close by... i didn't stick around to find out where...

    Why do 90% of the people have SUV or 4x4 in California? I will never know. But around these parts it is a necessity, and even fun. Lets grab a case and go four-wheel’n!!! WOOO-WHOOOO!!!

    It is not the best way to see wildlife, but we did managed to see a couple wild turkeys, eagles, many deer and a bobcat on this particular drive... along with these two animals pictured.

  • 'n Fishing

    The other activity in these parts besides using a spittoon for what it was designed for, is fishing. That is what I do here. That is what my English Center pages is mainly about. And those stories that go along with it.

  • Shoot'n

    I never got too big on the hunting, both my grandparents hunted. It seemed to much work to go hiking in the winter mountains. Walking in unpacked snow is tough. Then lets say you actually shoot a 150lb deer or a 300lb bear. Now you have to drag that dead weight the same way you just came. No thanks. But give me a gun and some inanimate object to...

  • Don't Forget Insurance

    If your current health insurance doesn't cover you while your abroad, you should consider getting international travel insurance just in case something should go wrong.

English Center Favorites

  • Picnic Table

    It’s not too big, but it holds a lot. Sometimes I will count 30+ trout in this pool. This is where my brother stood one August afternoon when a black bear decided to be curious in my brothers actions. The Bear, Booboo (let’s call him), stood on the ledge to the left where this picture was taken. We’ve always been told that bears are more scared of...

  • The "Golf Course"

    No, there is not a course here. This is what they call this clearing. At one time there many have been a golf-hole set up, but no longer. This is a place where the deer come to party at night. If you want to see that, you need a spotlight.

  • The Cribbing

    This is an old picture. Most of the cribbing is no longer there. A few years ago, there was a hurricane that swept through here causing floods and land slides. By looking at the picture, you can guess what happened. One of those places, you never think of time changing. But it does. The first time I saw what remained of the Cribbing, I sat on a...
