Days 21 & 22 – End Log

Posted by & filed under .

Alright, so I need to close this out, there was a slight difficulty when I got home which has prevented me from doing so till now. Actually, technically speaking, haven’t solved that yet – but in a short time I’ll have to go to mom’s to charge my computer and borrow her wifi and when […]

Day 20

Posted by & filed under .

I spend a fair amount of time either singing American Pie or Plastic Jesus (learned from watching Cool Hand Luke as a kid) as they’re the only two songs I know in full that are alright being repeated. I think back to those early trips cross country in the 240 Volvos listening to Paul Simon’s […]

Day 19

Posted by & filed under .

I’m posting from Scranton PA where I ended at about 6pm after a solid day’s ride and a bit of heaven. I was a ways back, this was around 3pm, at a burger joint off PA-11-N when a fellow named Lance turned up on a Harley for a bit of a chat – at the […]

Day 16 – Eastward Bound

Posted by & filed under .

There’s not much to report for today. Made my way out of Ohio and up into northern Pennsylvania following 304 to 62 to 6. I couldn’t tell you exactly where I am at this moment, it’s a very small town and this inn has very slow internet, and rotary phones in the rooms. I did […]

Youngstown

Made it to Youngstown in time to see the eclipse, almost perfect timing there, came up through the city on US-62 till I hit 304 – which is the street my grandmother lived on. The ride from Saint Clairesville to here was lovely, for a brief stretch I was in something akin to prairie country […]

Day 13

Posted by & filed under .

Alright, so today wasn’t quite what I’d hoped, I rode a total of 350kms and I’m about 150kms from where I started – and 150kms from where I wanted to wind up – which was only 240kms from where I began. I’d made it up to just south of Pittsburg when the road I was […]

Day 12

Posted by & filed under .

Woke up early this morning as planned and set about trying to nail down a new rear tube, the shop within walking distance put me on hold for 30 minutes so I called the other shop, upon hearing my plight the folks at the 40+ year old family owned Leeson Motors offered to come pick […]

Days 10 & 11

Posted by & filed under .

Made it into West Virginia yesterday morning and hit upon some spectacular views – I’d forgotten how beautiful this state really is. Here’s a set from early in the day: and a nice shot of the bike with the country in the background, I followed Rt 7 West for a solid portion of the day […]

Days 07 & 08 – and pics from Day 6

Posted by & filed under .

Day 07 I found the hotel I was looking for, I’ve now been in this town more times than some of the towns surrounding my area in Massachusetts, and as such I’m starting to get a feel for the place. Like knowing I had to take a left on Baltimore Street to follow 116 despite […]

Day 06

Posted by & filed under .

No pictures today, I took them but for some reason I can’t send them to my computer here, that particular service is not available. I’ll post them along with whatever I take tomorrow when I next have that service. Here’s what I wrote up for today: I overshot Gettysburg and wound up in Maryland. Did […]
