So we got a jump on our trip. We woke up this morning at 4 AM as we were taking Ekta and her dad to New York City to catch an early morning bus for Niagara Falls. After seeing them off we headed to Perth Amboy to begin our ride. We parked the car in New Jersey and biked well into the afternoon. We took a nice break, picked up a few last minute odds and ends for the bikes and after a few hours, set off again. We couldn't have asked for more perfect weather, and our trip was made easier by the fact that we didn't have to take our panniers or any of our gear since we would be spending the night in Stroudsburg. Tomorrow will be another story but we have friends in State College, PA who will pick us up as far into the state as we can make it and give us a bed for the night. Thanks Amber and Bien!
