Day three of Go Joe 17 “Big City Blitz” began in a corn field in Chambersburg. “A lot of farm lands here in Chambersburg,” said Joe. “I’m headed east, east, my friend towards Harrisburg.”
Joe cleaned the chain on his bike and headed north on Route 11.
For most of the ride the roads were flat. He passed plenty of farms, but by mid-day Joe made his way into Harrisburg where he was greeted with cheers. “It makes me feel loved and we all need to be loved.”
Folks from Pittston gave Joe a donation for St. Joseph’s Center. Joe did a celebratory dance on the steps of the Capitol. “I’m going to keep moving on. Reporter: You’ve seen it and now you’re done now? Granite, suits, politicians are not my style.”
So it was back on the road. Joe headed toward Elizabethtown. He was more interested in getting a cool drink, “Turkey Hill Lancaster County coming up. I’m a Turkey Hill ice tea guy. I’ll be pumping those like manna from heaven.”
By the time he rode into Elizabethtown, temps reached 94 degrees. His first stop, getting an iced tea. “Would you like to wipe the sweat off my brow? ‘No I wouldn’t.’ I’m a sweaty mess ready to end this day. I’ll do it myself.”
On day four, Joe will ride from Elizabethtown to Philadelphia before making his way to Marywood University for the St. Joseph’s Festival in Scranton on Friday.
