While road tripping through the U.S., I try to make a point of staying off the interstate highways. They are great for making good time, but you don’t really get to see any of the places you’re traveling through. Better to stick to the country roads or even the old US highways. Check out this video I made together with Juno Kim, who really deserves all the credit for editing the video. (Check out her travel blog RunawayJuno.com) The music selection, Bob Lind’s Elusive Butterfly was mine, inspired by my uncle’s good taste in music.
Driving from Clarks Summit, PA (my hometown, near Scranton) to Albany, NY we had to make good time, but I was still able to squeeze in a few country roads, bypassing Binghamton and crossing the New York state border between Susquehanna, PA and Windsor, NY. At New Milford we exited I-81 and wound our way northeast through towns and villages, past farms and fields: Susquehanna, Oakland, Lanesboro, and Windsor, eventually meeting up with Interstate 88 which we rode the remainder of the trip into Albany.
Thanks for the good words! I’m more and more liking editing the videos. Driving around the country road is far better than interstate. It’s convenient for sure but it’s just road and the car. Country road reminded me of New Zealand driving a little.
More driving today, yay!
