We opted not to take the Chesapeake Bay Alternate and stayed mostly on small country roads.

Houcks Mill Road.

At noon we stopped in Jarrettsville for lunch. It was a weird Hawaiian themed ice cream and sandwich place that played songs from the Rugrats soundtrack. Food was really bad and we sat there for almost 2 hours.

7 miles later we stopped to take yet another break at Deer Creek.

Matt took a nap and woke up with a tick on his leg.

Entered Pennsylvania on the 165 after Pylesville!

This part of the road was like all the states put together. Steep hill like the Ozarks, corn from Kansas, barking dogs of Kentucky.

Pennsylvania was hillier than we expected. We had two steep climbs out from the river bottom near York Furnace before reaching Wrightsville and the Susquehanna River.

We also ran into a sweet couple that gave us chocolate chip cookies and offered us to make us burgers for dinner — too bad we had to get moving.

Getting dark.

Meatball sandwich with homemade bread in Manheim. Matt sniffed this out.

This is all we could see.

Biking in the dark took us forever. We got into Reamstown around 1:30am, ate dinner behind the fire house, then set up our tent between someone’s fence and tree. Didn’t sleep till 2:00am. We are officially squatters!
