From CNN: President-elect Joe Biden could return to the nation's capital for his inauguration ceremony the way he long bridged his life at home and his job in politics: On an Amtrak train from Wilmington, Delaware, to Washington, DC. It would be a fitting moment for the man who took roughly 8,000 round trips on that same route during his time as senator and vice president -- earning him the moniker "Amtrak Joe" -- and who four years ago left Washington by train on his final day as vice president. Biden's inauguration team is eyeing a rail arrival as one of a number of plans being discussed for the January celebration, Democrats familiar with the planning told CNN. As a frequent Amtrak and rail passenger, I certainly hope he is able to d... read more

Amtrak, somewhere!

Nous laissons Virgiinia Beach pour partir vers le nord, direction Maryland et ensuite le Delaware. Au Maryland nous avons été épatés par la plage de Ocean City. Un beau boardwalk, des boutiques à la tonne. Cette plage ressemble beaucoup à la très populaire plage de Santa Monica en Californie! Bien que la température se tienne autour du 25C, l'eau est trop froide (à mon goût) pour se baigner. Mais c'est idéal pour marcher et magasiiner! En sortant d'Ocean City nous entrons au Delaware, le camping sera au State Park: Delaware Seashore, sur les dunes de sables....très beau mais pas d'internet là non plus! et tant qu'à faire le bord de la mer, nous visiterons Rehoboth, une ville touristique et intéressante! sortez vos 'gougounes de plage' pour visiter!!... read more

The drive from Pine Grove Campground in Chincoteague VA to Steamboat Landing RV Park and Marina in Milton DE on Wednesday, June 5, 2019 was short and uneventful. I chose the Milton park as there are no RV parks close to the state capital, Dover, and because of its otherwise relatively centralized location among my other attractions of interest. The park is on a dead-end road about a mile from DE 1, a major four-lane divided highway. Very convenient. Most of the sites are occupied by permanent or seasonal non-residential units, and my time at the park was very quiet and serene. My first stop on Thursday, June 6, 2019 was the First State Heritage Park Welcome Center and Galleries in Dover DE. First State Heritage Park had me off balance for a while, thinking it ... read more

One of Ten ! When it comes to riding motorcycles - any day on a bike is better than a day at work. However, occasionally you get a red letter day where everything lines up and its one of the 10 best rides you get that year. Today was one of those days. I started in Rockville MD about 10:15 and plugged Queenstown MD into my Garmin. Most of the traffic North of DC was heading in the opposite direction so it was smooth sailing to the very high and picturesque bridge over to Queenstown. The weather was fantastic between 72 and 79 degrees all day and once I crossed the bridge no more interstate roads. I plugged small towns like Harrington and Lewes Delaware into my Garmin, so I'd be on smaller two lane state ... read more

Today would be the day that Bike & Build history is made: We will be the first team in the organization’s history to cross the state line of Delaware!! I think this is the only continental state a trip has never touched! But not without some pain to get there... July has arrived and with her comes some scorching heat here in Harve de Grace. We enjoy a buffet breakfast, grab some extra granola bars for the road, and get moving. The sun is blistering as we lather up sunscreen and get ready for our ride. We opt for route meeting to be in the minamal shade across the way from the building where my teammates enjoyed showering last night. Oh well, I would need another by now anyway. Bike and Build. In typical K2C fashion, ... read more

Plan is simple, we are leaving Washington Dc early this morning and we need to be at our hotel in Newark, next to New York, not too late! I'm not an engineer, but I love to see and experience amazing human construction. I would drive just to ride a fun bridge! The drive from Washington DC to New York can be a very urban one, or a pure ride on highways and paying few tolls. Or has it to be? Today, we are taking the long way around....the countryside way! Once out of Washington DC, the first important place is the Chesapeak bridge. I cannot stop around to take you get the best we could. The bridge is a double one, it's huge, it's actually beautiful. We paid the pretty reasonable one way toll. Few ... read more

Today is Jody's turn for the pilgrimage to the place of her childhood. Unlike my returns to Lowell, MA which have happened every few years, Jody has not been back to Dover, DE since she was 15. The changes in Lowell have happened gradually as I notice when I return each time. To Jody, the changes in Delaware are dramatic as it has been over 35 years since she has been back. Since Jody was excited about her visit and didn't sleep well last night, we were able to get an early start this morning , so we had breakfast and were on the road by 7:30. The first couple of hours of the ride were really beautiful. We were traveling through southeast Pennsylvania farm country and most of the farms looked either Amish or Mennonite. ... read more

I am 25 years old girl. I was always scared of everything even to jump , I was brought up like that from my childhood . my first experience by flight was so thrilling and exciting experience. I had my flight by early morning from Chennai so I stood in queue early by 3 A.M and I had boarded the flight by 6'o clk. An old lady and men sat near to me. Since it was my first flight experience I was scared little while taking off and after few minutes I was relieved. I was not feeling sleepy even though it was night in area where flight is flying because my native time is morning ,and I saw all people sleeping but I was feeling only hungry. I had food in flight which was given ... read more

United states welcomed me with green trees and leaves. This is my first ride with my hubby by car in United States. It is so wonderful sight that we loved the highway which is full of farm lands . Our trip started with help of guidance by google map . we had fun in beach by standing in water and very high waves pushed me into water. At that moment I saw the end of world . suddenly my heart beat so fast that I pushed myself out of the water. I had more fun until rain starts . I saw number of crops planted in farm lands and watering was so different that they have farm irrigation sprinkler which would sprinkle the needed amount of water like rain so that water will not be wasted ... read more

27 juin Aujourd'hui, on prend la direction de la plage, à Bethany Beach, dans le Delaware. Ça peut sembler un choix étrange... Wildwood, Old Orchard, Virginia Beach et cie sont des choix beaucoup plus populaires chez nous au Québec... Mais bon, on ne voulait pas rouler trop loin ni trop longtemps vers le sud, et comme on voulait payer notre séjour à l'aide de points Marriott, ça a un peu, beaucoup dicté notre choix... qu'on ne regrettera nullement cela dit! Nous étions dans un superbe appart-hôtel en bord de mer, avec une belle plage de sable tout blanc, dans un endroit calme et hyper-familial... Alors toujours est-il que de bon matin on descend en famille déjeuner... On se rend vite compte qu'on est dans un hôtel ayant pour clientèle principale les gens d'affaires... En effet, il ... read more
