Ohio Pennsylvannia Upstate New York
Firstly I made it across Ohio and Pennsylvania to New York State faster than I thought on back roads. Secondly a mechanical triggers a great experience in one of America’s oldest industrial towns. Details in Ohio-Pennsyvania-Upstate-New-York-Bob Davis Podcast 1109.
Back Roads Are Not Slow
Of course the fact that you get to really see America is another point.
For example I was rolling across the country until a mechanical problem brought me to Jamestown New York.
Jamestown New York
Instead of freaking out I went to more than one mechanic in Jamestown until we figured the problem out.
And learned a little history too.

Avoiding Major Cities
The most compelling evidence for back roads travel though is being able to snake through the green fields and hills of rural America all the way east.
Equally important I think is also being able to avoid all major cities.
Notwithstanding a quick visit to rural Rochester New York to pick up my power station from the Campulance Man. Check out his videos on YouTube here.
Without a doubt this has been one of the best trips I’ve taken.
Surprisingly the reason is simplicity itself.
Avoid Friends and Family
That is to say I have learned over the years to avoid detours to visit friends and family.
By all means I love my friends and family.
One the other hand when you complicate things on the road it can get really complicated very quickly.
As much as I like being with people I also am comfortable with alone time.
Accordingly there’s a lot of alone time threading the back roads.
At the present time I am making my way through New York’s Adirondacks…
And it is incredible.
All in all plenty of time to think and enjoy the moment.
