Beyond the Lazy Dixon Line

Hey y’all.  Brian of Pittsburgh, PA. here, and I bounced over the 1,000 mile marker a few days ago and had a pleasant 5 day visit in Gettysburg with my loving parents and lovely girlfriend. What wonderful way to rest the weary legs and celebrate the 1,070 miles now in the rear-view.  With more than […]
