I know its been awhile, but I’m finally loading pics onto my laptop and the last day of the road trip were on there, so here’s the last day! My dad apparently took this picture on the last meeting. You see the earplugs on the bed. My dad snores so I came equipped.
Here is the first snow we spotted! We’re getting closer to New England!
Here’s the tractor haven that my dad wanted to visit. I stayed and read in the truck and he went searching for tires and parts. This would be to my dad as Archives bookstore is to me.
Here we’re driving back to the freeway through Pennsylvania. We’d go all the way to those hills and had some breathtaking views from there. Too bad I didn’t get any good pictures. Also, we passed a Mennonite church that said, “Visitors Welcome, Members Expected”. that was my favorite church sign along the way.
Of course we passed many of these historical markers. But is this really that important to be marked?
We wanted to see how much the truck weighed, so we stopped in at the truck scales. The lady wasn’t nice at all, ignored eye contact, and refused to say “Have a nice day”, “You too”, or even “Your welcome.” But she did give us a big rig trading card. I guess that is to encourage people to weigh their trucks. Not sure how effective that is.
This is for “The Office” fans out there. No sign of Jim’s cell phone on the side of the road.
Another sign we’re getting closer to New England. You’ll notice 1. A Suburu; 2. A Peace and Smiley Face Sticker; 3. Extensive salt on the car; 4. Green Vermont License Plate. All that is missing is a Grateful Dead sticker.
Mercifully, our time in New York was limited. Though I did notice an error on this sign. It’s missing “Evil” before “Empire”.
Potentially the most boring state sign.
This was hiding behind some trees and couldn’t be seen until you were on top of it. That explains the poor angle.
A sign we’re getting closer: The Mass Turnpike! This was always a sign we were going places. Either on vacation or to Easter States Fair. I also remember loving the rest area on the turnpike. It was like an indoor city, plus an arcade.
I believe this may be the only sign we saw that was in two languages. We’re so cultured. There is a bigger, nicer one on the freeway. This is just over the boarder on the main road I live on. And notice the greatest state motto. New Hampshire is so hardcore.
And this is what welcomed me home! This is the hat I got him at Tombstone.
