We spent our first night at the Holiday Inn Express in Belle Vernon, across from Hoss's.
We started the next day with an early morning breakfast at Eat'nPark with our PA friends. After breakfast, we went to see my Dad and grand parents' graves, and then we hit the road.
For the first part of our trip, we took the back roads through Mt Pleasant, Donegal, and more. At Breezewood we got on to the turnpike for the rest of the ride.

Next I went for a beautiful trail run at Beaver Creek State Park in Ohio... also took a quick bath in my swimsuit as a true Burho ...
... stage! So cool. It was also the end point of the trail we were on!
More to come! Thanks to everyone in Pittsburgh! I had a wonderful time, and I feel like I could never do a fifth of the memories justice, but here are two great photos of the concert!
