Day 82: Interstate Tour 2018
Besides the big production objectives I've got planned for this week, the need to find some bike trails was also high on the list. With the weather turning inclement over the next couple of days, I wanted to get a good start to the week's exercise. A little research turned up The Jonathan Eshenour Memorial Trail near Hershey, which was a surprisingly hardcore workout that included a scenic cresting above Hummelstown that even provided a view of nearby Hershey Park.
Yeah, I know - if I'm in view of it, why am I not actually at the park? Because Cedar Fair Platinum Pass, man! Besides, they haven't put anything in new since Skyrush, at least nothing with thrills, and I'd just as soon NOT spend a wad of money there at this point. Not when I have a pass for free parking and free park entry to two parks with better coasters.
Wednesday was looking to be a good day and my plan was to start heading down towards I-95, looking for a Valvoline Oil Change salon and also changing the oil in the generator. Tuesday would be rainy, so a perfect errand day before getting into a good location for Wednesday morning.
I rode 15.91 miles over the course of 1 hour and 36 minutes - that's a grand start to the week! Now, if I can just keep it together, I'll lose some of these extra pounds that I picked up, no doubt, from going overboard at Webster's Fish Hook (and I still don't regret it one bit, no sir.)
Took a shower while still at Shank Park and then drove some pretty and curvy backroads to arrive at Linglestown Flying J, where I filled up with water, sat down and caught up with the world via WiFi. I wanted to get south of Harrisburg before the morning since traffic there is one of this country's great bummers.
Steering Imua onto Highway 39, I set a course for Walmart Resort: Camp Hill and set up there for the night. In the morning, we'd get an early start for Virginia.
