Welcome to Leg 2 of the 2019 20th Annual V2V. I'm honored to be your leg captain for this leg. 

We will depart the Hotel at 8AM and backtrack to the Old National Road/Victory Highway which is the road we will follow to Uniontown. This ride is very scenic going through mountains of Western MD as well as Southern PA. It is also full of things to see. 

I have planned several side trips, up to Flight 93 Memorial and another surprise with an awesome overlook of a gorge with a river at the bottom, they talk about the Grand Canyon of the East up by Wellsboro PA, well this is just as impressive, actually better IMHO.

We will also stop a 2 Tollhouses that are still standing the first one in LaVale, MD https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/La_Vale_Tollgate_House and the second one in Addison, Pa. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Petersburg_Tollhouse We will also ride by one in Hancock MD, but there isn’t a safe place to stop.

The mile markers also change along this section of the road, they will start out looking like headstones until Cumberland, MD, marking the distance back to Baltimore. But after Cumberland they look more like the National Monument in DC, they are made of steel but painted white so they look like concrete. On one side they mark the distance to Cumberland, MD and the other side they mark the distance to Wheeling, WV.

We will also stop at the Casselman Bridge https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Casselman_Bridge which is historically significant and on the National Historic Register

We will end our ride for the day at the Comfort Suites with good food choices nearby for dinner.

 - Gene

Mike if the group wants to go to Flight 93 we will be there around before lunch I hope. You can follow our track on spot which will be live starting with Leg 0 tomorrow when I head up to the start of leg 1. You can text me also 703-626-6830. If we are ahead on schedule we'll do the memorial then lunch at a great place the Hen House https://www.henhouserestaurant.com/   which is right on US40/Victory Highway if we are running late we may eat at the Lincoln Café. My guess on the gorge would be between 3 and 4. - Gene
