Day 1: Wilkes-Barre, PA

Left early this morning for the first leg of the trip to Knoxville to see the solar eclipse. Crossed at Ivy Lea. Hardly any lineup at the border.

Had breakfast in Watertown at a Tim Hortons and filled up with cheaper gas. They sell beer at the gas station!

It’s a nice drive with many hills and valleys  Some rain showers but nothing too serious.

The ride down was uneventful. Stopped by Premium Outlets in Tannersville. Had a meal at Billy’s Diner. Guess what I ate?

Checked out a nearby Walmart Superstore. It’s amazing how much more variety and products they have here compared to Ontario. Had to buy some junk food.

Checked in at the hotel.

Spent some time chilling with the missus. Ate the junk food while watching Alfred Hitchcock’s classic The Birds. They don’t make movies like that anymore.

Time for some ZZZZZs.
