End of September, first part of October a trip of more than 3,500 miles for two equally important reasons: 1) to see our son and his partner in New York; 2) to cross those last few states off our 'lower 48 list'. Somewhere along the line we decided this nearly two-week-long trip would also be dubbed as "celebrating our 30th anniversary" - even though that's not until November 19.
After leaving Gettysburg we drove back down into Maryland to scenic I-68. It was while on this road I saw something I'd never seen before - the opposite side of the interstate was closed down due to:
Because we did not know how long we would stay at Gettysburg, we hadn't pre-booked a room for the night. Finally decided to stop in Morgantown, WV and found a room at an older, but nice, Best Western. It didn't have a hot tub but it did have an indoor salt water pool - a first for me.
What a wonderful trip it was - high on the best trip list.
