We left Salem this morning and hit the road south to Gettysburg. We took our first unplanned side trip when we saw the sign for Bristol, CT. ESPN headquarters was a short detour off the highway. That place is like Ft. Knox. We weren't getting inside the gate, but at least we can say we've seen it!

We arrived in Gettysburg about 5:00 PM. We are staying at the Dobbin House Gettystown Inn. Dobbin House Tavern was built in 1776. The old homes surrounding the tavern are now part of the B&B. We are staying in a room on the second floor of the Liester House. Right now we are sitting on the front porch in rocking chairs having a cocktail and watching the tourists walk by. We just saw an older couple walking down the street in IU gear. Of course Danny started an conversation and 30 minutes later they went on their way. Now we have another gentleman on the porch talking history with Danny.

We are looking forward to walking the battlefields tomorrow and I'll take plenty of pictures.
