This morning the sky cleared and the air was crisp when we checked out of our hotel room. We took a leisurely ride up to the Mohawk Casino where the rally closing ceremonies were. There was lots of beautiful scenery along the way and the roads were free of traffic most of the time. We arrived at the casino 74 miles later. I was impressed with the organization of the casino staff to direct us to our designated area.
After the ceremonies were over we left the casino and headed west on Hwy 37 along the inland seaway. We them caught I-81S down to Pulaski, NY. We planned the afternoon ride to be short just in case the ceremonies went long. As it turned out the 144 miles were done easily and we were checked into our hotel by 5pm.
Total mileage today was 218 miles.
Tomorrow we are pushing down to Front Royal, VA which puts us at the top of Skyline Drive. We’ll ride it on Monday down to Waynesborro on Monday. Tuesday we’ll start riding the Blue Ridge Parkway.
