Day 26 - Arrival on the East Coast
Saturday, September 29, 2012
The roadside hotel provided one of the best showers of the trip! Life's little unexpected pleasures are the best, especially first thing in the morning.
It was pitch black at 7am when we grabbed breakfast to go and departed for I-70 East out of Indy. The mileage was at 7,834.
Bill was feeling a little punky, so I started the day behind the wheel. He dropped the ball on navigation, so we missed our turn off for the scenic fall-color route out of Columbus, OH and up through New York State.
We made a couple of bad turns and eventually corrected the route on an old familiar path: Interstate 80.
The fall colors were more dramatic than we imagined going through the 300 miles of Pennsylvania's rolling countryside.
We crossed into Jersey, and we're soon going past Mom's former town of Denville. It was melancholy.
It was a big day if driving.
What better place to stay for the night than our beautiful home in Chatham. We stopped for sushi to go, and crashed for the evening in homey comfort.
