Across New York State and into Pennsylvania today. After an early morning blast down main roads I crossed the Hudson river at Newburgh and carried on through a mix of industrial and urban landscapes and scrubby farmland.
In contrast, in the afternoon the route took me on quiet, wooded country roads down the Delware River valley, crossing the river at Dingman's Bridge. After short diversion up the Delaware Water Gap to look at the view I finished in Stroudsburg.
On a quiet night in Stroudsburg, due to the inclement weather, I chatted to John about the difficulty of finding a middle ground in contemporary American politics, combining economic and social liberty and of the differences between English liberalism ans American libertarianism, among many things.
