TRIP 2010

Update #21 - May 21st
Hanover, Pennsylvania
2,146.03 miles (3,433.65 KM)

Sixth update for the trip. The ride is pretty well back to order (sort of). I've been able to sleep without any kind of medication (even Melatonin). The miles are going by quickly and so are the states. Pennsylvania is my seventh state for the trip. I'm within 263 miles (421 KM) of Geneva, NY where I will be turning west. The interesting portion of this leg would be to ride up the Susquehanna River. At Duncannon, PA (north of Harrisburgh), I will be crossing the Appalachian Trail.
