Welcome to Leg 2 of the 2022 V2V. My name is Gene Hunt and 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. Please ensure you have a full tank of gas. This ride is very scenic going through mountains of Western MD as well as Southern PA. It is also full of things to see.

We will stop for gas in LaVale MD, a Sheetz, ~100 miles from hotel in Frederick.

We will stop for an early lunch at Sand Springs Saloon & Steakhouse | FROSTBURG, MD | Sand Springs Saloon & Steakhouse | HOME there is outside place for us so that our four legged friend can join us.

I have planned a side trip, up to Flight 93 Memorial, it will be a brief visit of ~45 mins at the site

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 are still on the route so look for them on the right hand side of the road. They will change along this section of the road, they will start out looking like headstones until Cumberland, MD, marking the distance back to Baltimore. 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 Holiday Inn Express in Uniontown, there is an Applee’s  walking distance(.3 mile) from hotel for dinner.

 - Gene
