Dear Spark Friends...

Saturday, January 22, 2011

My virtual cross country journey continues. The first 2 weeks I'd biked/walked 90+ miles from my apartment and found myself in Scotrun, PA...home of 7' champagne!

So this week I took off from Scotrun, still heading west down I-80. I saw a lot of interesting things, and LOTS of mountains, those seemingly insurmountable obstacles that try to impede your progress and get you to give up . I passed them all, pushing myself to peddle just a little harder or walk a bit more briskly, or run without actually dying! Pretty soon the worst of the mountains were behind me and I was sailing along...just enjoying the sites.

Sometime during the week I passed an old miner's village from about 1854. Only 19 people live there now but it was a pretty little village and I stopped to snap a couple of picks to share.



And this one too...



FINALLY at the end of the week, I coasted into Mooresburg, PA. 75.34 miles from where I'd started out. I was tired and I was sore. But I felt ACCOMPLISHED and INVIGORATED and I couldn't wait to see where next week would take me on my journey and what new things I might see along the way.

So...



Dear Spark Friends...

Greeting from Mooresburg, PA! There's not much around here but I knew I had to drop a postcard and found this cool city marker (though city is a VAST overstatement). The town seems nice, but I miss the 7' champagne. Will write again next week!

Cheers,
Tory

    Ok! Here's the plan....

    When you get to Clearfield, stop in the cemetary. I need pics of my 'relative's' graves. BUT! When you get near Dubois, put your head down, your body into that ride and peddle as hard and fast as you can until you get to Clarion. That SHOULD be a safe distance from my 'relatives'! emoticon

    Congrats on an awesome week!

    Pick me up on your way back (home) -- We'll find a way to fit that 7' glass of champagne into our nutritional tracker if it kills us! LOL

    --Hugs,
