Our trip finally began!!!
We left Rick’s house at 7 and drove 15 minutes to Morrisville where we stopped for breakfast. We figured that by leaving Morrisville at 8 we would miss all of the commuter traffic near Fort Washington.
We figured wrong.
Traffic was stop and go for about three quarters of an hour. It did get a lot better after we got to the Northeast Extension, though.
Trucks were a nuisance; they cause a lot of problems because of the turbulence they create. Other than the trucks, the ride was pretty smooth.
We traveled 422 miles to Austintown Ohio where we decided to call it a day.
We all think that the day went very well, we went much further than we thought we would be able to on the first day.
We did get a little (in my case a lot) sore, but a couple of Extra strength Tylenol tablets and a few shots of rum seem to help.
