Kim and Scott were approaching the iHop as we got near and arriving together we all wailed about the frigid morning. A hot breakfast with lots of coffee helped but we sat for over an hour in the warm restaurant, waiting for the sky to lighten and the temperature to climb a few degrees.
We rode to Lancaster and decided to call it a day. The light was starting to fade and we knew the temperature would drop fast after that. We found a hotel and walked to an Olive Garden where we were served with gloriously hot tucker and more coffee. Kim and I had a Grand Marnier to warm us some more and of course Scott and I had to do chocolate in some form.
The next day Scott said that snow had fallen overnight just a few miles further north of us . We were so lucky we hadn't ridden any more miles the previous day. We decided to go east instead and rode towards Amish country.
We stopped at a family restaurant and stocked up on hot stodgy food, and more coffee.
