Homeward Bound Day 1 : Cambridge, MA - Gettysburg, PA

Well, this trip has had a bit of a rough start. On Sunday, the day before our departure, Keith's phone fell into a sewer at 5:30PM. The phone couldn't be retrieved and the stores closed at 6, so Keith rushed to a store, convinced them to stay open for him and quickly purchased a replacement.

Monday started off with a six hour delay leaving Cambridge. We were cleaning up the apartment right up to the last minute. I suppose it was good that it was so hectic as it gave us little time to dwell on sad feelings about leaving the friends and places we've come to love.

Part of the route included the lovely Saw Mill River Parkway in Westchester County.

Arrived in Gettysburg close to 1AM. One of my favorite parts about driving cross-country is the different signs you encounter. My favorite recurring Pennsylvania sign had to be the orange "BEWARE OF AGGRESSIVE DRIVERS" signs. Does anyone need to be told to be wary of aggressive drivers? Sadly, I was never able to get a picture of one.
