    I went to school about an hour south, but drove through Williamsport coming from Upstate NY. Like a lot of NE towns & cities, they have a few factories that they can't afford to lose!

    Yes LL World Series is played there.

    I'm originally from Watkins Glen, so I drove down Hwy 14/15

    Know the area well. I'm originally from Syracuse. My daughter went to school in Aurora; Wells College. When I'd go to visit we'd cruise around everywhere.

    Having spent some time in China, I'd think paying them $2.50/day is closer to reality.

    I guess this is why there are zero ShopVac disposable bags in the stores around here. I like having the bag in my clean vacs, plus it makes them last longer by keeping them cleaner.

    The Shop Van disposable bags do seem to be rare, scarce, or possibly made from "unobtanium". However there are generic ones available that are claimed to fit Shop Vacs, so I'll have to try using them.
