I spent a summer in Scranton...thats's about all I can say about the city. I also snuck into the University's gym with no problems, which was nice. Scranton does have the sickest cliff jumping spot I've ever been to -- 72 vertical feet with options for shorter jumps as well. There's not a whole lot to do in or near Scranton, but I can help you out with some ideas for when you do get there. PM me when you're actually there and I can suggest some fun day trips.
If anyone ever told you that I give a damn, they damned well told you wrong!
The other day I was eating Starbursts and watching TV, and then a Starburst commercial came on. I was like, damn, that's profound.
