    Man, that was easy. Applied online to Adams County, approved quickly, made an appt 3 weeks out. In and out of the Sheriff's office in Gettysburg in less than 10 minutes--no one else there but me. Spent more time talking to the two deputies screening visitors at the entrance...parking meters are a quarter for 20 minutes by the way...

    That reminds me, I have to apply (online) for my renewal next week. I dread the journey to Gettysburg with all of the speed cameras, red light cameras, license plate readers, bike lanes, bus lanes, reversible lanes and that aggressive parking enforcement. It sure is a lot different than DC.

    Just applied online for mine for York county, pretty easy application and send photos for your MD license and HGP and pay the $25 fee. I heard takes about a month for you to hear back and you have to go and physically pick up the permit at where you applied.

    Hey I was thinking of getting Pennsylvania also. If I do dose it make a difference if I do Adams or York county? Those are probably the closest for me. I live in DC.

    It’s only $25 and usually takes less than a week. The pick up schedule is filling up fast. You’ll need to do it on week days during business hours.

    Glad I don’t take the route you take. :D

    I went to York Courthouse today.

    Got street parking because the market was closed. Put $3 in the meter in quarters.

    Walked in the courthouse without my phone. Threw my wallet, keys, spare quarters, and belt in the bin. Walked through the medal detector.

    Went to the sheriff's office to the right. Two ladies just got their permits.

    Officer asked if I had an appointment. I said yes and asked if one was necessary. She said not really. She then asked for my license. Didn't need my permit. Said to stand on the X. Took my picture. I signed an electronic pad. She printed out my permit in ten seconds and handed it right to me.

    Handed me a paper that basically states to submit your renewed MD permit or your PA becomes revoked because PA is five years and MD is two or three depending on renewal or new permit.

    I asked her what happens if it lapses, if I have to mail it to her and she said yes. Don't let it lapse.

    Then I went across the street on Philadelphia and at at JR's in the market for the rest of my meter time.

    Easiest permit I ever got. Probably took about ten minutes total once I got to the courthouse.

    Wish I had tried going up there yesterday without an appointment. I was off work and it would have made things easier.
