My wife and I were really looking forward to taking this ride. I printed out the directions on the page and we were off. Breakfast at Steve's was awesome. When we got to the end of Jones rd., we looked for Bradshaw rd. We saw Philadelphia rd. Decided to go right. Good guess. Found Bradshaw rd on the left. Things were going pretty good until we got to 851. Directions never specified whether to go east/west, right/left. We were lost from there. so we decided to make our own trip and just traveled the back roads of PA. We had no plan or purpose. We just road for about two hours. Never made it to Strasburgh. If the poster could rewrite the directions with some navagational points of reference, I would be willing to try it again.
