Day one – East Hampton CT to Williamsport PA
Hot weather but fairly constant movement kept things relatively cool. Staying off the interstates and on the twisty mountain roads shaded by trees also helped. The Giulia loaded down as she is with 3 people and luggage affects her handeling but at speed she drives smooth and comfortable.

The town of Beacon NY was a great first stop. Full of great shops including those for coffee and beer!
Our stop for the night was the clean but very dull Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott Williamsport
