So the theme for all you upcoming travelers out there...BRING YOUR SPARE SET OF KEYS!!
There wasn't anything else we could do. They couldn't be found and we couldn't continue to sit there. So hoping against all hope we hit the road and prayed the key would show up in the luggage somewhere.
With our, now, late start this was going to turn into a long day. So we took to the road. Not much else can be said. We played it safe. We followed the highways. We were amassing more time riding in rains. Even had the pleasure of negotiating metal grated bridges slick with rain. (Good thing I didn't have to turn.)
The highlights of the day?
Stopped for fuel and had a couple come up to us and start chatting. They are veteran road travelers and had noticed us on the highway. The husband at full belief that they would catch up with us. And they did. Great couple living in South Carolina, going to DC. We had a great time exchanging stories and laughing. Thank you Bruce!
Rode the Chesapeake Bridge-Tunnel. Oilburner didnot notice the gift shop and pier on the first island, so we didn't stop. I wasn't too disappointed since it was, yep, raining. :) But it was a fun riding on the bridges and submerging into the tunnels. Didn't care for the $12 per motorcycle price tag. But it might be awhile before we make it this way again.
Having fun noticing that due to all of the interstate riding, the stupid little feelers on my tires are still all there, except the area directly down the centerline.
