DST Day 4, 13 July 2012: Corning, NY to Wilkes-Barre, PA

Portraits of customers and employees painted in oil by owner Harold "Whitey" Carlton adorn the walls of Light's Bakery and Coffeeshop in Elmira, NY. He sometimes works from life but now more often from photographs as, "no one has the time to pose anymore". I highly recommend their thick cut, cinnamon raisin french toast with a bottomless cup of coffee on the side. Unhurried drive on county highways south through the hills of Pennsylvania.
At the Comfort Inn in Wilkes-Barre, PA I need to print a letter to mail home. I go down to the lobby and within 10 minutes return to the room with two copies of the letter, an envelope, directions and hours of the local post office, a copy of today's Wall Street Journal and two freshly baked chocolate chip cookies - all complementary. Gotta love the service. Room rates are very good and we have a fridge, microwave and hot breakfast to boot.

Today's Distance: 252 km Total Distance: 628 km
