Lackawaxan, PA - the Roebling Delaware aquaduct.
I dropped the new tag here with Mark from klr650.net. The plan was to keep it as far north and east as possible so as to skunk the Philly and central PA guys. After winning the tag at "the cup" in Phoenixville at 8AM, I met Mark in Schukill Haven, from whence we took 61N to 81N to 84E to this tag. Came home via 33, Mark split off at 512.
It was a 325 mile day - 2 gas stops. Ironically, I was talked to my neighbor this evening who was proud of his 200 mile day to Port Jervis, which is only a few miles from Lackawaxan. We both rode 100-ish miles to locations only a few miles apart.
That's almost as freaky was when we ran into our neighbors in Las Vegas.
The Tag-o-Rama thread had been mentioning cheesesteaks for a while - the Philly guys want the tag back locally, and the close-to-Philly guys want an excuse to ride to Philly for a steak. In their honor, I stopped for this (lousy) cheesesteak in Palmer township.
