I'm 668.75 miles into my journey from NYC to Vancouver and made a stop at Mechanicsburg OH.  Mechanicsburg was settled in 1814 on the Shawnee Indian Village of Chief Ohito.  It was a station of the Underground Railroad during the civil war operated by Udney Hyde who facilitated 500 slaves to freedom.  Mechanicsburg is the home of William Saxbe, former Ohio Senator, US Attorney General and US Ambassador to India.  I'm 75 miles from the next border crossing into Indiana.

Mileage is down somewhat.  I'm just enjoying the runs now.  No pressure for a while.  I still like to do the occasional longer run of 6-12 miles.  I think I'll go longer as it gets cooler and drier but for now this is about it.
