    Summer is generally better for me. The other three seasons, many of the weekends get busy.

    There’s a wine festival 6/23-24 at Split Rock Resort that sounds interesting. Maybe we could meet there?

    Split rock Lake harmony ? Aw man. I’ve got some amazing/horrible memories of that place. From a bachelor party wknd. the polar opposite of a wine festival.

    He might resent you called him "old", he'll sick Sadie on you next time you see him...

    Of course she would attack you with her tongue, she's quite the nice dog! Just don't let her get started digging in your yard...

    I'm surprised it's within 10 miles of my trip. I was thinking your trip would have been much longer, nice!

    Just under 4 hours for me depending what route I take. There's a golf course as well for those interested. Good choice Heather, it seemed to have sparked an interest. For the Harford folks perhaps we could have a mini meet up in the Spring.

    Bill, for unrelated reasons, I just drove that exact route recently. For my money, I would take the I-180 bypass from Williamsport down to I-80, as shown here: https://goo.gl/maps/Qy7a72HauNu

    It depends on what kind of driving you like, obviously. I actually prefer smaller highways to 4-lane, limited access roads. But even I found the stretch of US15 from Williamsport to I-80 to be kinda annoying, confusing, and stop-and-go. Google says that my route will add 1 minute (!) to your trip.

    Yea, don't forget the nice smell from the fly ash incinerator (just south of Williamsport after you come down the long hill)!

    I drive 15 from Mansfield thru Williamsport to south of 80 maybe 4-6 times a year. It sucks. I'd do 180 even if it (Rt 15) didn't suck because I really enjoy driving new/different routes even if it cost my some time.
