Pennsylvania is a long stretch, but finally we made it through the state and ended up some where between Akron and Columbus. Sure, it was just 15 minutes past 3pm but starting out at 7am we had our fair share of road excitement. Passing through Akron meant a lot of traffic and I have pointed out earlier, big city drivers are a special lot, mostly they have been in such a hurry that they have left their brains at home.

When I see someone coming onto the Interstate from the right I usually move over, letting them come on. However, when I have a 70ft. semi beside me or some Lamborghini or a fast Beemer is coming from behind, I can't move over, can I? So then I have to hit the brakes or accelerate like mad. Neither is any fun, but I kinda try to avoid squeezing them to the guard rail.
Contrary to that the open highway is very relaxing as we are going at 60-65mph eating mile after mile.
Another thing catching my attention today are the bridges. We must have passed a few hundred just today, and either there is a construction area on the bridge or the pavement is so bad that it won't take long until a construction crew will occupy it. Usually the speed limit is reduced to either 55mph or 45mph. Alas, nobody seem to care about that, except me, which means I am dragging a tail of many vehicles behind me.
We have seen lots of police cruisers today, most of them had been hunting those speedsters, dishing out a few juicy tickets.
