Gettysburg was very cool. I would like to go back and spend a couple of days. Lots to do there.




I stayed here right in town.



I guess it will have to do !!
Look, 7 pillows on the bed.



Kind of what you would expect.




Dinner at the Dubbin house. VERY GOOD
Maryland crab cakes, sweet tater, basket of home made breads, yes breads 4 different type.
And home made pecan pie. Oh yea a local red wine



After dinner I went looking for GHOSTESSES



DO YOU SEE ANY? Supposed to be in the top window.




So after a good nights sleep, no spooks in the B&B It was time to head South again.
I had 2 routes in the GPS one would get me to Front Royal, beginning of the Skyline Drive in about 2 hours. The other would get me there in about 4-5 hours but be more scenic.
Since it was going to rain all day I had to chose 2 hours or 5 hours in the 44 degree rainy weather.


I was ready in my BIG BIRD suit


Of course I chose the longer route. That's what I'm her for is the scenic routes and the adventure of riding in all different conditions.
I'm not going to run for cover just cause of a little stinking rain !!!



On the way out of Gettysburg I did a little tour of some of the battle grounds.
It is hard to fathom the number of people killed in the one battle, this area.
In 1863 the population of Gettysburg was 2500. There were 51,000 soldiers from both sides that were injured. 20000 were killed during the battle. 40,000 horses were killed.














No too many photos today. Pretty much rained the whole way to Front Royal.





I'm not setting any land speed records on the trip. But I am enjoying the ride which is what it is all about.

I got done early today about 4 PM. Made it to Front Royal VA.
