9/23/2014 Tuesday. Get Me Over The Susquehanna, Navigator!

The big discussion last night was how to get me over the Susquehanna River without unduly terror ing me with bridges and semis crowding on bridges.

The Navigator earned her money when she plotted us on a southern route via hwy 72S connecting with U.S. Hwy 30w. Not only was this ascetic route but we bypassed Harrisburg and the busy I81 bridge over the killer river.

30W did cross The Susquehanna but the bridge was level more like a causeway and there was little traffic to contend with. It was a breeze and melt downs were circumvented. We had a nice drive through Gettysburg and some of the battlefields and then we connected with I81S and it was back to the boring interstate drive.

We landed at an ideal KOA in Natural Bridge: it is right across the off ramp of I81 and rig next to the entrance of the KOA is a Shell gas station that is easy for RVs to enter and exit. The KOA has a great wifi connection and cable tv. Does lifet get any better than this?

Tomorrow, the Navigator plans on is visiting the Natural Bridge and maybe a drive through zoo. We will be here until Friday when we will head to South Carolina.
