our goals this trip -- to spend one night in kentucky on the way THERE, and one night in another previously un-visited state (ohio, indiana, or missouri) on the way BACK. we also hoped to make it to gettysburg, pa sometime mid-day on friday as it was the last day of 'bike week' there.
unfortunately, mother nature had different plans -- the drive thursday was uneventful and we did manage to spend one night in lexington, kentucky; friday was a different story. the weather was nightmarish -- blinding rain pretty much the entire day (of the variety where one can barely see dividing lines on the roadways, as well as other vehicles) so of course we were forced to reduce our speed and we realized we were not gonna make it to gettysburg in time.
we coincidentally learned at that same time that some dear friends from florida also happened to be in hershey, pennsylvania so we then attempted to coordinate a rendezvous point to hook up for dinner. again, due to the rain AND construction zones along our path we just were not able to make it work.
no matter -- another quick change of plans and we just opted to head straight to warminster. all part of the adventure!
