Starting back towards home

October 15, 2010

Some context … Simon drove from San Diego to Baltimore … 2??? miles.  If he drove the same distance southeast from Bristol, where Alice lives, he’d cross – having to deal with most of the border crossings – France, Germany, Austria, Hungary, Serbia, Bulgaria, Turkey, and very nearly into Iraq.  Except he’d be turned away at the border of Iraq.

Today we didn’t rush out in the morning, and when we did we had a few bits of business to deal with.  And then realized that if we got ourselves to the Lincoln Highway (30), we could follow it most of the way to our next planned destination, to visit with my mum.  State counts:  Maryland, Pennsylvania, Ohio (only just), and overnight in West Virginia (only just … Newell, WV).  Lots of lovely fall color, all the more spectacular in the short intervals when the sun broke through the clouds.

Unfortunately, we lost Highway 30 at one point in Pennsylvania, and when we’d regained it we realized we’d narrowly bypassed the chance to visit the Flight 93 Memorial.

No camping tonight!  It was chilly enough during the day!
