Now That Was a Long Drive
Our last stop before heading home is Monroe Connecticut. The computer program said it is a 20 hour drive but we ended up spending 26 hours on the road. The time difference is due to rest breaks, stop lights, traffic and driving slower than the posted speed limit — 75 mph seems a bit fast when you’re pulling a trailer on mountains roads. We decided to drive straight there stopping for the night in Wal-Mart parking lots. On the trip we drove through Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York and Connecticut and I decided that at least on the route we followed Pennsylvania had the best scenery.
