Well, after a couple of days of riding and sleeping in the mountains, I guess being around so many people really drained me, it was time to head back home. Saturday Night was spent near Wheeling, West Virginia, right on US 40. I was about 290 miles from home, and my choice of The National Road, or the Superslab, I-70.
I started out on US-40, but it becomes I-70 before too long. I was making good time, and I was ready to be home. I-70 must be the most worked on section of interstate in the country! I saw more orange barrels then I have ever seen!
Springfield, Ohio was 160 miles into the trip, and the fuel light had been glowing bright for about 30 miles. I pulled off onto US-40, and pulled into a gas station. I had about 120 miles left, and I felt lucky that so far I had skirted any storms. A few sprinkles splashed the windshield, but it was really nothing.
After a few more miles, and passing along Dayton, Ohio, I crossed the border back into the Hoosier State…
