It'd be quicker to go to Pennsylvania, which is only a few miles west of the trail, but if you thought you could go to a Browns game after the ride, realize you'll be in Steeler country.One hates to quibble as it takes a lot of work to write and publish a book...but one also hates to drive around lost.
