Day 65 - Almost back

May 3

The 'full' breakfast at Howard Johnson's is a little less than full... there were mini bagels but no bread for toasts... there are waffles and syrup, so my sweet tooth is happy...

The plan is pretty straightforward... go as far as we can, as fast as we can... Interstate 81 is the plan until we reach Binghamton New York... W watch the price of gas climb as we race along, and there's not much we can do about it...

We finish up passing through Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland and Pennsylvania... all the way to New York State... mind you, going through West Virginia & Maryland together takes a little over a half hour... at the New York Visitor Center we step out of the RV... and want to head back south at the next opportunity! the sky was overcast and the temperature had dropped 25-30 degrees... while the Welcome Center itself was a jewel - New York did a really good job here - the weather was not friendly... and then the rain came...

We were planning on taking the Interstate 88 - a new road for us - and our options were Binghamton at rush hour, with whatever traffic that meant, or a GPS bypass... we chose the bypass... a GPS adventure yet again... that section of New York state is hillier than Texas with a few winding steep hills to test our brakes... but we made it through... just as the light rain turned into a much heavier rain that lasted through our arrival in Oneonta and a Walmart... Applebee's for supper and a quick walk through the small shopping mall - where we passed on watching a movie - and on to Walmart for a quick shopping before bedtime... we should be at the trailer in West Chazy tomorrow...
