Happy 4th of July from Dayton, OH

Happy 234th Birthday U.S.A.!!

Well I didn't get to Dayton by 4:00. I guess I was a little over optimist. I finally got to the hotel at 7:00.

Even with a lot of time on the slab (Interstate) and an average moving speed of 60 MPH it took longer than I thought to ride 530 miles what with stops for gas and stretching.

The ride was, as expected, pretty boring except for a leg of U.S. 30 over the mountains West of Chambersburg to around Ligonier, PA.

I got onto I-70 via U.S. 119 close to Pittsburg and then it was just a grind to Columbus and on to Dayton.

Not much else to say. Off to Madison, WI tomorrow.

  1. 530 miles in 12 hours is pretty good progress for the first day out! (Didn't realize Dayton was that far...) Great photo by the way!
