Day 4 – Gaithersburg (PA) to Pittsburgh (PA)

Was a bit ambivalent about the plans for Independence day. As we had 200+ miles of travel ahead of us, we chose not to go to Washington DC for the parade, but instead we pressed on to get to Pittsburgh. Made a couple of stops along the route.

Day 3: Washington DC

Took the car in to Washington DC today to try to sneak a picture in front of the White House. Turned out that was easier said than done – half the city was closed due to preparations for Independence days. Absolutely no stopping with the Obamacastle in sight, and police everywhere. But we were determined…

Klar for tur!

Første stopp: Svinesund for utklarering. Planleggingen har naturligvis pågått lenge. Vi meldte oss på som bil nr 32 av 81 allerede i 2011. En passe dose galskap må nok til for å bli med på et sånt prosjekt. Vi er jo kanskje ikke de selvskrevne deltakerne med vår lille rare Citroën 2CV, men er veldig…
