Today was an easier day that got us to the hotel just before 5. We got to check in to the hotel and have a breather before going for supper.
We manage to find the New Jersey sign but only after an hour of zigzagging in and out of NJ for 40 minutes or so. We were trying to find a safe spot for the picture taking, not a 6 lane highway full of trucks. Finally we did find a safe spot and took the picture. It was the last state picture needed on this journey.
We ended up riding on the Merritt parkway through Connecticut which was a nice change of pace for the I-95 interstate. Very scenic and still able to roll at 55-60MPH with light to moderate traffic. Bill wanted to see if he could get a better Massachusetts sign so we did get the one on the way in to the state. Now officially our picture taking picture taking was officially done. We could ride at our leisure to somewhere in Maine for the stopover.
We decided to stop in Augusta which would leave us with an easy ride to finish our trip.
For supper we went to the 99 restaurant next to the hotel. I really enjoyed the steak and look forward to stopping in again soon. That's it for now. Keep the rubber side down, shiny side up.
