The Trip to Indy – Recap and Stats

The Trip to Indy – Recap and Stats

So this is a total, post trip recap. I started each article the night I got back to my hotels, some nights I cheated and only technically finished them in the morning. (Hiking 6+ miles a day, and hitting 2-3 breweries, and driving 2-3 hours takes a lot out of an old dude like myself.) But I did do a daily recap, and they call all be found here:

The Trip to Indianapolis:

I need to go over the formatting because it seems there were some formatting issues with the recaps. I will most likely get to doing that tomorrow. But in the meantime, you can still read them fine, so it should be all good.

I have given each day a subtitle that you can read when you click their links.

Briefly, the big cities I hit were:

  • Pittsburgh – Day 2
  • Columbus – Day 3
  • Indianapolis – Day 4
  • Cincinnati – Day 5
Sun King Brewery

There is almost too much to go into detail, but I will do the trip into full recap / stories and post them. Not sure if I will break them up into articles per day, two per day, or by city, or some other way.

But, this article is for the bare bones stats:

There’s a lot more statistics to tabulate, like how much I have to pay the ‘great state’ of West Virginia… and other things. I’ll add them to this article when I think of them / deem it fit / decide to / finish the whole series of articles.

In the meantime, I’m going to try and relax a bit, enjoy some of the fine brews I brought back, and watch my Bengals lose to the Steelers. Sigh. Next year…. always next year.

Until next time, cheers everyone and thanks for reading!
