RideAbout65 Day 4 report.  Got lazy yesterday – spent the report writing time trying to figure out where to go next… But here it is.  Day 4 began at Winchester, VA – another beautiful day. I headed over to the Antietam Battlefield Park via some more nice back roads. Yep, it is a big field. On to Gettysburg Nat’l Park – got there and no parking close to visitor center unless handicapped or a “Green” vehicle – didn’t want to leave bike with stuff way out where they wanted me to park – moved on…. Note to self, with my knee, Dr. Stark should get me one of those blue parking hangtags! Leaving the park I actually saw a pair of Ducati’s in the wild. They even appeared to be traveling somewhere – you would never see that in Tennessee. Then on to Schaefferstown, PA to eat at the Franklin House (established 1746) – read about it in “Backroads” magazine. Yummo! I waddled out, got on my bike (seems that I heard a grunt as I got on) and rode up to Stroudsburg, PA for the night. Total Happy. Miles so far: 1145 miles.
