On to the Mason Dixon Line
We left Ashburn, Va in the rain. Not a heavy rain, but after 4 hours of riding we were very cold and very wet. We had made into Maryland and spent the night in Frederick. Maryland had nice rolling hills and beautiful style colonial houses, but the roads were very narrow and not easy to ride.
We entered Pennsylvania and crossed the Mason Dixon Line. The line that now classified everyone north of it as a Yankee. This was the line of Demarcation. A nights stay in Lancaster with some warm shower hosts. Janet and Kevin were very kind and had done some serious touring on bicycles in the past and will do again in the future. Traveling through eastern Pennsylvania we south the Amish part of Pennsylvania. This Amish community was a lot different than our Canton, Minnesota community. I found the barns were very different and I was trying to figure out why so many windows were in the barn.
