here's the route if you don't want to do the 71N thing:
Here is the trip plan that we are taking:
Start: Bob Evans on 23N (we will prolly meet up at 9am to leave)
23N into Deleware
Right at or past where 23 intersects 36 you hang a right and get onto 42 north-east ward
42 goes past Leonardsburg, Ashley, Cardington, Mount Gilead, Williamsport
You end up in a small town called Shauck where you need to pick up 314N to Steam Corners
Stay on 314 and it should get you to 288, hang a right and your there.
