June 22, Pittsburgh, PA – It was raining when I got on my bike before 7:00 a.m. It rained all the way to Columbus, OH. then I took off the rain gear and enjoyed the sunny, warm weather all the way home. I arrived about 2:00 p.m.
It was my final day on I-70. The trucks were out in force. The only thing I could think of to write about was the store at a rest stop that was very nice and not the usual convenience store. Unfortunately I don’t remember the name of it or which exit I took to get to it. Maybe I can figure it out from my gas receipts.
My ride was a great adventure. I enjoyed all of it. I finished it feeling peaceful and contented, not high and excited. I really like my bike. It took me everywhere I wanted it to go. While it would be nice to have a touring model, I haven’t worn this one out so I think I’ll keep it for awhile.
I recommend this ride to anyone who thinks they might like to do it and who has enough experience to ride all day. It’s probably easiest to do it by yourself. Next time I think I’d like to go with my wife and a couple of close friends and see a few different things. I think I might not go so early in June because of the rain in the northeast.
Finally, thank you to those of you who followed my adventure, read all that I had to write, and made a few comments. I appreciated hearing from you.
