So after a rainy Sunday... we head back towards Michigan. This time via PA Turnpike I-76, which I must say is way better than the 99/322 via State College/coming from the north.

Thanks guys. It was another good trip.

I swear... anymore. Rding around here to bike nights, to work, etc. All just seem like blah miles to put in till my next trip. I'm hitting the road again next weekend and going up north. Can't wait!

Then another trip at the end of Sep down to West Verginia for white water rafting. Should be fun!

If the rafting thing goes thru... that will be a trip in May, June, July, Aug, Sep, and in Oct I'm heading back down to Tenn but in the car with the dog.

Nice pics!

I used to see two Stallions downriver all last year but have not seen either one this year. I saw them back in Daytona in 2008 and always wanted to take one for a ride and see what it was like. LOL
