Welcome back everyone to our Lancaster PA road trip part 3 and picking up where we left off last.
Now for the third stage, what path do we want to take there that may offer the most opportunity for spontaneity? As far as our selected route most of you following know we prefer roads less traveled such as those other than highways. The reason for this is they not only add adventure, wondering how we’re gonna fit our class B motor coach van down that narrow deer path they call a county road but also, they allow us to see and interact with rural folks that have stories which touch us in profound ways. So, route 15 was the best one for us. It was also good because 15 goes right into Williamsport which is nestled along the Susquehanna River.
As we researched the little towns along this river we discovered back in October 2016 there was an incident involving 55 thousand gallons of gasoline leaking from a pipeline and flowing into the Susquehanna. This bothered us. The pipeline, overseen by Sunoco supplies petroleum to Buffalo and Rochester. Hmmm, 55, 000 gallons is a huge contamination to a river populated in and around with so many species of marine and animal life not to mention used by many outdoor enthusiast.
So, now that we have covered all the stages of planning this new adventure the departure day arrived and we were ready to go. We were up at 5 a.m., ate, packed daisy (our RoadTrek 190 and with coffee cups filled were on the road by 10 a.m. Emma was ready at 5 with her Frisbee and nyla-bone by the door but we needed our coffee time, lol.
Here is a video of some of the roads less traveled.
