Some more recon today. A few notes:

1) Conowingo SUCKS to drive over. Big time. It could be an end point, I guess, but it's really not in good condition and the parking area at the bottom isn't great for pictures of cars. They do have public restrooms though.

2) Roads around Conowingo are horrific. Honestly everything on the north shore of the Susquehanna is in rough shape.

3) The best roads are Creek, 82, 841, and Noble. Everything else is fine, but just really transit. Sleepy Hollow was fun, but turned kind of chip/seal crappy halfway into it. I was alright on it but I don't think everyone would be.

4) It's a lot of driving. A lot. I was tired by the time I got to Conowingo.

I'll keep playing around with the routes. Maybe take a trek farther north than some of these roads? Any of yous guys know these roads out here or am I the only one with any knowledge of them from these trips?
I know roads north of 76, but not south.

I have no time to coordinate or participate in this. I'll give the map to anyone who wants to drive it. Route is alright. Some sections are better than others.

Sorry all. Too much else going on right now.

Its possible. I might off the car before then if this job is real. The roads to/from where I'll be working are fucking horrific relics from the 1950s that are 3rd world at this point. I hate New Jersey.

Upcoming is a friend's wedding, my wedding, honeymoon, my brother's wedding, and throw a new frustrating job into all that. By the time all that is done, it's going to be close to winter tire season.
