Day 2 – New Stanton, PA to Marshall, IL

Day 2 – New Stanton, PA to Marshall, IL     08/22/10     Mileage: 478   

I woke up to find it still raining from the night before, and as I was already behind…there was no waiting it out. I packed up the bike in the rain and set out on I-70, but luckily it ended an hour later and the roads began to dry out. As came up to Pickerington, OH, out of the corner of my eye on the opposite side of the road I caught a glimpse of the sign for the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame…cool! That’s a no brainer of a stop and I’m glad I did. While not huge, there was some great motorcycle on display.

Might be more comfortable than the KLR...it's a toss up!

Later on that day I pulled off in a rest area and spotted a fellow Adventure Rider on a Buell Ulysses. He was on his way home from a 2700+ mile loop from IL to Maine and back in 5 days.

As it was getting dark, I was looking for a place to stay and found a campsite just south of Marshall, IL. The ranger office was closed, so poached a campsite and made an early exit the next morning. Though it was not a comfortable nights sleep, at least the price was right….$0.
