Day 1 is in the books. The three of us are sitting in a hotel in White Haven, Penna. to ride out an overnight storm. We did almost 300 miles today, all on 2 lane blacktop. We're trying to get down to Front Royal in a reasonably quick time without relying on the interstate highway system.
Highs and lows for the day would be riding through the Delaware Water Gap and getting stuck in miles of stop and go traffic on Route 209 in PA.
We're trying to figure out a theme for this trip and hoping that one becomes obvious as we ride. The closest thing to that today was "The Walking Dead" tour. We passed so many towns that were in decline, with their industries gone, their busineses shuttered and the people that were left walking around, looking lost.
I only have a couple of pictures so far as the hotel's computer is extremely slow to upload.
We started the day at Mrs. Murphy's Donuts in Southwick, Mass.
A random stop on the road. Hot day today! It only gets better from here.
The plan tomorrow is to visit Centralia, PA (the town abandoned due to an underground coal fire still burning) and get to Front Royal.
