Day 13- Gettysburg

Day 13- Gettysburg

Hey,

We got up late because the basement had no light, but to tell the truth we didn't try to hard either. Shikira, Caryn, Delaney, Lliam, and I all went to breakfast at a diner where we talked about thier trip to the cabin. We said our goodbyes once and then again after they dropped off the phone charger I had forgotten. As if they had not already done enough they arranged for us to stay with Jim and Mary in Gettysburg.

Gettysburg was a hotspot because biker week was in full swing. After meeting Mary and Jim, Mary took us on a condensed tour of the battlefield. Kira really enjoyed the history and I enjoyed seeing her smile. Mary took us through downtown area, now dark, and bikers lined the streets 4 deep. 20,000+ bikers had come to town and the sound of engines roaring could be heard all around. We got home and talked about people, resumes, and politics until finally going to bed.

Some other highlights of the day included running into Sean (our truck driver friend who we had met the day prior), and passing many of the 16,000 memorials. Oh yeah and we got on the news.

Early in our day we were stopped by an inquisitive passer-byer before being interupted by Fox43. They took the time to ask us all sorts of questions. Finally we shot a quick little piece and walked on. http://www.abc26.com/videogallery/71061930/News/Pair-Walking-Across-America-Passes-Through-Adams-County

Just trying to keep you in the loop,

Levi
