The first part of the drive was through Allegheny National Forest. It's a really pretty area, although Ruth didn't take any pictures on the way through. Too busy playing with her new MS Streets and Trips GPS, I guess! We would like to go back to this forest at some point. It looks like there are lots of trails, and lots of spots to pull off and do some free camping.
Then it was on to the Interstate.
A nice view of the town of Emlenton, PA from the I-80
Part of our driving plan was to avoid the congestion between Youngston, OH and Pittsburg, PA. We did a pretty good job of that! We didn't know where we were stopping for the night, and we had to do some groceries anyhow so we found a Walmart at New Philadelphia, Ohio and by then it was around 5:00pm so decided to stay the night. Again, there were lots of signs saying no campers, but we went in and asked and they pointed us to a corner where they said we would be fine. And we slept okay, except Whiskey had a bit of a coughing fit and that kept us up a while. She seems better this morning.
Headed for a Harvest Hosts winery tonight, but it's going to be a 300 mile day around Columbus, Ohio and Indianapolis, most of it on the Interstate. Oh well, we'll be able to relax for a while when we arrive at Sam and Donna's on Saturday afternoon.
Thursday's drive, 235 miles (376 kms)
