Here's a pretty shot of Wilkes-Barre, PA.
We kind of skirted around Scranton, which was a shame, because I wanted to try to get a shot of Dunder Mifflin for Sassy. Actually, I DO know that Dunder-Mifflin is a fictional company (on tThe Office), but Sassy claims that there is a clock tower in Scranton which is featured on the show.
Here's a shot of the Hudson River Valley, around Mr. Trucker's head

One thing which seems to hold true no matter where we go is that all the BEST scenery is on Mr. Trucker's side of the truck, ALWAYS! It's so frustrating.
We stopped in Fishkill, NY, to make a WalMart run, because we were out of bottled water, and because the entire state of Vermont appears to only have four WalMarts. After WalMart, we made a quick stop at an A&W (stands for Amburgers and Woot Beer) to grab a quick bite. I had to smile when I heard the locals ordering at the counter. There's none of this "I'd like..." or "Could I please have...?" like you hear in the Midwest. When they order in New York, it's "Give Me..." or "I Want...". I have heard this from other people as well. When I worked at a bank in Green Bay, we would always say "What may I help you with today?", but one of my coworkers told me that the bank employees in New York would say "Whadda YOU want?". I don't know how true that is, but listening to the customers in that A&W tonight, I can believe it.
We're currently tooling through Connecticut and Mr. Trucker is on a rant about the "retired hippies in Connecticut who are all married to the 55 MPH Federal speed limit that hasn't been a law since the 1980's". He creacks me up!
Sassy taunted us last night with cellphone pictures she took at Punch Neopolitan Pizza in Minneapolis, our favorite place to eat there.
