Day 1: Chambersburg, PA (Applefest) --> Pittsburgh, PA
October 15, 2016
Starting from our hometown of Vernon, NJ we set forth on our thirty day cross country adventure. In our travels we will we stopping through different "hotspots" to spread our brand but also experiencing the natural beauties of this country. Follow us on our journey of 11,000 miles, from different craft shows, through national forests and major cities.
Departing our hometown of Vernon, NJ where we had brisk fall days. Lows of 35 at night and only reaching 60 during the day. Heading on our journey cross country, where some weather extremes can get down to 20's or lower!
Our first day was in Chambersburg, PA for their annual Applefest. There were over 100 vendors there, who all prided themselves for their hand made items.
After making great connections, selling some inventory and teaching more people how to tie bow ties, we are off to Pittsburgh for the night. We are spending the night with Josch's old college roommates!
Overall Day 1 was a success, we traveled about 400 miles.
Off to Lake Michigan tomorrow morning!
