Tales from the road

Back from a ride on the roller coaster that is the Pennsylvania Turnpike from Philly to Harrisburg East.

Amazing, we pay dearly for the thrill of driving this road and what do we get?

Rest areas that are closed and a roadway that is awful, and we're nearing summer's heavy travel.

Where does this money go? i've always wondered that. I wonder it more today.

The rest of the trip was eventful in that I saw 10 workers conversing in a segment of the 322 construction zone near Mifflintown.

If you're planning to come to Happy Valley for the Blue/White game and you haven't made the drive in awhile, be prepared. There are several construction zones.

It takes a weekday to see anyone working. At least I can say I did.
