This time the daily reports were composed on the road on my laptop and updated if the motel had high-speed Internet.  They all did except for the absurdly overpriced Super8 in Amsterdam, NY, and the B&B in Confluence, PA.  The Best Western in Erie, PA had wireless, but for some reason I could surf the web but I couldn't log in to my website.

The route came from several sources: The New York and Canada portions were from Adventure Cycling, NY Bike Route 5, and a book about cycling the Erie Canal that I can't seem to find right now.  The PA portion followed PA Routes Z and A from the PennDot website.  I made my own route across Maryland.

Even when it was raining and hilly I never wanted to quit.  So I guess I enjoyed myself.  Now I have return to watching what I eat.
