My Route in 2020
Up the East Coast and Back on a Motorcycle!
Savannah to North Carolina
Just like I started last year, I'll be leaving my home in beautiful, historic, Savannah, Georgia. But THIS year, instead of heading west, it's northward, up the US east coast all the way to the Canada border and back. The route up takes me from Savannah up the coast along primarily US 17 and US 1.
The first stop this year is Wilmington, NC.
North Carolina to Virginia Beach
Leaving Wilmington, I'll take the ferry to the Outer Banks and then head on up the beach to Norfolk. There I hope to be able to visit the beautiful Hunt Room in the famous Cavalier Hotel.
The next stop is Philadelphia, "The City of Brotherly Love."
I've been told that's a bit of a stretch.
From Philly it's north to Sleepy Hollow, NY...
the setting for Washington Irving's
quintessential American horror story.
I just hope I don't lose my head.
From Sleepy Hollow to the city that never sleeps, NY, NY
From the Big Apple it's north again to Boston.
Boston to Maine
The next stop after Bean Town is Bar Harbor...
and maybe some lobstah.
The Canadian Border
I know they aren't gonna let me in,
but maybe I can at least get a picture...eh?
West to Bangor
From the Canadian border, it's actually due west
to Bangor, Maine. Paul Bunyan lives there...
apparently when he isn't living in Wisconsin or Minnesota, anyway.
Ticonderoga, "America's Fort" taken from the British
during the American Revolution.
No, the pencils are not made here...
at least, I don't think they are.
West Point, home of the United States Military Academy and the Army Black Knights, or, as several of my friends who attended there call it, "Hell on the Husdon." It doesn't scare me.
I'm an OCS grad. Nothing is worse than THAT!
On to the battlefield
where the Confederacy's high water mark was registered, Gettysburg, PA.
From Gettysburg I travel south to the site of the famous
John Brown's raid, Harper's Ferry, WV
The Appalachian Trail to Asheville
Leaving Harper's Ferry, it's south into Appalachia,
through Roanoke, and on to Asheville,
home of the Biltmore Estate.
From Asheville, it's south to the last stop before home,
to a place that gave me so much I wouldn't otherwise have,
Athens, home to the University of Georgia, my alma mater.
