Route 6 in NE PA, From the PA/NY/NJ (Milford?) to Scranton, via Hawley. It
was a beautiful and very fun drive when I was going to college back in the
80's. It was a bonus that they paved it just before I moved there. It was a
shame that I was driving a 351 powered Mustang II. I really couldn't enjoy
it like I could have were I driving a Corvair.
