I'm Done Traveling
I had planned (in my original post) to stop in Columbus, Ohio but it was too early, so I continued on to Wheeling WV. That's when the freezing rain started, so I decided a room for the night was a good idea, and stopped at Dallas Pike, which consists of a truck stop, two hotels, two bars, and a porno theater.
Today I drove my favorite part of the trip, on I-68 through the Cumberland Gap and the eastern Continental Divide. There was a little bit of snow at lower levels, but as I hit the 2300 ft. mark, it became much deeper, and fresh looking. Glad I didn't drive last night, I'd have been in the middle of it.
However, it did make for a few nice pictures. These were taken at the first Maryland information center on the interstate. If you click them you get the 800x600 versions.
As you can see I'm not the worlds greatest photographer,
but they do show a nice view of the area, and how nice it looks with new snow on the ground. I love the look of snow and ice covered trees. There was a better spot to get a picture of it, but I think the trucker behind me would have gotten angry at me for stopping on a 6% upgrade to take pictures.
To all who wished me a safe trip back, thank you, I appreciate it. My next trip home is in two weeks, but I'll let Northwest Airlines handle it instead of driving.
Normal opinionated blogging will return in a few hours, after I finish putting all my stuff away, and rearranging some things so that I have room for the Linux box I built while on vacation.
