Bridge and Tunnel

After packing up my campsite in Maryland, I continued down the Delmarva into Virginia, land of competing slogans, some more subtle than others (zoom in if you can, sorry for the sun):Much of the route looked pretty much like this,but there were also some opportunities to detour onto back roadsand there was a bike path running alongside the main roads for the last few miles before the toll booth at the end of the island.

From there I rested the bike on a pile of traffic cones in a bridge authority truck bed, paid the toll for the truck, and got a ride across the Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel (which features bridges that descend into tunnels to allow freighters to go by) as the tail car in an oversized load convoy.Once in Virginia Beach, I headed to my hosts for the night, including one of my hometown neighbors who made his way here. They too gave excellent hospitality.Tomorrow I make my way to the Outer Banks, joining up with the Adventure Cycling maps (and larger states!).

      Thanks for reading, Jon! Decided against a realtime map but joined up with the Adventure Cycling maps at Currituck, NC today and will be following those going forward!
