Departed 4:35 AM. Went to main road, turned right and continued until my southerly route intersected. "You can't miss it."
5:15 AM. Still wandering around city, following various gas station attendants directions.
5:45 AM. Locate 211, which quickly became 17M, which almost instantly became 11 before finally settling in and becoming route 24 - oops, it became 35 then crossed under I-84 and then...... became route 6, made a U-turn and crossed under I-84 until we were almost in Port Jervis at which point my road turned left, became 521, sending me into New York as well as hurtling along River Road. Confused? Me too. Onward.
The last bit of craziness was when 521 made a hard right turn, became 206 and tossed me over the Delaware River into Pennsylvania. Over the Delaware into Pennsylvania? Why isn't it Delaware?
Craziness aside, at least the ride is beautiful. Surprisingly, there was so much green, and the land just goes up and up and up. Quickly.
To be continued...... the deer are coming, the deer are coming.....
