Amtrak delays cost us over 4 hours.the bikes were finally unloaded. The alert system on Harley’s flashes the lights if someone tries to move the bike. They had just had a 14 hour ride of jostling. Four dead batteries on Harleys and another 90 minutes of delays. This forced me to slip from plan A to plan B to plan Z. We would be taking a direct route from Lorton to Lock Haven. While Garmin didn’t think it was the fastest route, it was mainly on roads I had been on dozens of times when I lived in Washington and Lock Haven and dating a young lady in Mechanicsburg.
Instead of rolling in with time for a great dinner, we stopped for something less and got in after dark. We still got to enjoy a lot of the beautiful countryside in Virginia, Maryland and Pennsylvania.
