    Counting the cars on the Pennsylvania Turnpike

    Counting the cars on the Pennsylvania Turnpike

    They’ve all gone to look for America.

    Another one from Sandy’s road trip, taken on the Pennsylvania Turnpike west of Pittsburgh by a:

    guy who appeared to be a miserable creature, whose mom would even have a hard time trying to love, and we know a mother’s love is unconditional. Hunched over his wheel, rounded shoulders, no wonder he supports Voldermort…

    One of my co-workers, originally from Kansas, I think, replaced his “Obama 2008” sticker with a 2012 version, which I noticed was much smaller type than before. To me, that means a lack of confidence. 🙂

    Gal : l drove several times north to south thru Penn on US highways. The 1st when l was still green. l spent the night at Waterboro NY. In the morning l headed south thru Penn. to pick up the Turnpike Does US 214 make sense? lt was a pleasant drive. At times small towns were strung along the road like pearls. l believe l picked up the Pike at the afore mentioned Breezewood? The 1st time l went thru a tunnel was at Wheeling W. Va. l freaked out as the clearance sign was confusing.

      Hi, Secondwind: Maybe it’s US 219? Just looked on Google Maps and that seems to be one of the north-south routes which come out somewhat west of Breezewood, where you’d get on the PA Turnpike. Can’t say I’ve ever been on that road myself, but friends of mine who travel within the state frequently say the same thing you have, that the hospitality in the small towns is the best.

    Gal: That sounds right. l no longer have my truckers atlas & what l have is a world atlas which lacks detail. Toward the end before l hit the T. Pike l think l was just east of Johnstown. l think there was another U.S. highway just to the east with a similar # which was roughly parallel.
