    We have been waiting for this since the snow was on the ground. This is our first multi - day distance trip 2 up.

    Royalton Vt to Galeton Pa.

    We didn't have a lot of time off but did manage to skip work at Noon on Thursday. We spent the previous week packing so we hit the road.

    I actually found this place on line a few days before. Jefferson NY. Why not right?

    Kind of a dump of a Hotel but the Restaurant was damn good. The Yuengling on tap was a good warm up for Pa.

    The oldest cemetery in town was down the street.
