Blacksburg, Virginia to Chambersburg, Pennsylvania

Hitting the tarmak

Tuesday June 19

Daily Miles: 275
Accumulated Miles: 6,175
Day 27

Today was a travel day. Most of the riding was on an Interstate. There are two things I don’t like about a motorcycle on the interstate highways – one they are boring, and two the 18 wheel trucks rule. They drive between 70 – 80 mph and usually run in packs of 2 – 4. I found I needed to be at least 6 vehicle lengths behind them or I was continually being bounced around by the wind turbulence they created. It is not dangerous, but the bouncing around takes it toll on the body – very exhausting.

On to Gettysburg and Hershey, PA
