Going Home from Pittsburgh

Checked out and left the hotel shortly after 9am. jbadger (and also flykat and John, who were riding with him) used the same route as I to go back. (Route 28 and then I-80, although I modified that a little by heading up Route 66 from New Bethlehem in order to add 3 geocaches to my route) So we met up twice along the way, once at Plyler's Buffet in Brookville and once, by coincidence, at the Snow Shoe rest area. I made a stop at the rest area to refill my water bottle just when he was leaving after having done the geocache there.

Anyway, I found 17 geocaches on my way home and turned an 8-hour drive into a 15-hour drive. There was also a lot more construction on I-80 Eastbound than there was on I-80 Westbound and that didn't help. However, taking some time to geocache off the interstate and see some of the small towns added a nice touch to the trip. I also met a cache owner while geocaching in Mill Hall. He placed the cache on the side of his house and I happened to be signing in when he got home in the evening. Nice fellow and I hope to find more of his caches the next time I travel to Pittsburgh.

Dinner was at the Long John Silver's / A&W co-branded restaurant in White Haven at I-80 Exit 277. Next time, if I'm having a late dinner, I should go to the Wawa store across the street instead. They were somewhat disorganized at the LJS, possibly because of the late hour.
