NEW MARKET, VA

Johnnie Appleseed has seen better days. Not sure why he is depicted as a simpleton? Doesn’t seem like good product branding!

“Johnny Appleseed statues which were built for the Johnny Appleseed restaurant chain.
These statues are about 14 feet tall and came in two styles, probably from two different
artists. Both types hold apples and wear upside down pots on their heads. They were designed to talk when you pressed a button.. The standing New Market statue’s legs were
damaged by a car at some point and repaired by an auto body shop.
Therefore, his stance is a little irregular. In 2008, this statue’s voicebox was repaired.
He hadn’t been talking since at least the 1990s. The New Market restaurant closed in 2016.”

And that was the end of Day 2. Canada to the edge of North Carolina, where we ran out of light. But you can see we went from parkas, thru sweaters to short sleeves. We have driven from Winter to Spring! Over 700 miles (1125 km)
