Hillside Wrestling Weekend V, August 1998

Riding to Hillside - August 12, 1998

This year I rode from Long Island, NY to Hillside, rather than from Boston. For Boston and Providence pictures from July 1998, click here.
  1. PA Rte. 739 between Delaware River and US 209, showing beginning of steep hill out of Delaware Valley
  2. Map at a realtor's office near southern end of PA 739 showing shortcut through the Poconos
  3. View on PA Rte. 106, looking west from mountain pass about halfway between Lenox and Carbondale, and the last major mountain pass before Hillside; Gibson area & I-81 are visible in the distance
  4. Lenox, PA (I-81 Exit 64) in a valley between two mountains
  5. PA Rtes. 848 and 547, in bustling downtown Gibson ;-) -- about 1 1/2 miles from Hillside, coming from the opposite direction compared to last year's ride. I arrived just in time for dinner (6:40 PM).

Who needs a mat to wrestle anyway? ;-)

  • The parking lot will do...
