To see as much of the world as we can,
Using the smallest carbon footprint we can,
Spending the least amount of money we can,
Making as many friends we can.

Team Red Cruising

D+5 — London, OH, to McLean, VA

We're not "home" yet. We still have to move in.

But we're in the neighborhood. And tomorrow we'll finish this.

The south-eastern corner of Ohio, a tiny sliver of West Virginia, southern Pennsylvania, and Maryland provided some scenery.

Much of today was a winding, hilly road.

The bonus?


As you descend toward the Dumbest Interstate Design Decision Ever — the I-70 clusterf**k known as Breezewood — the traffic picks up while the road gains turns and twists. Check the date; we're doing this on the Sunday after a long 4th of July weekend. So. The traffic was predictable.

The Breezewood Interchange drops you off I-70 Pennsylvania Turnpike toll road onto US-30. You have traffic lights and what-not. The world's biggest truck-stop. And then back onto I-70 freeway. Some claim an obscure law made this somehow necessary, but that's only half the story. The law was an excuse to do the wrong thing while claiming a budget win. See for some details.

Tomorrow at 08:00 we can start moving in to our apartment. Once the truck is empty, the trip will be complete.
