After riding more than 500 miles in the saddle Thursday my butt had callouses! That brings the two day mileage total to 892

My Great Aunt Kathryn had the farm lit up so bright you could have seen it from the space station I pulled in the garage and she had a cold Yuengling and dinner waiting for us

The carpeted stall. Notice the dirty bike



Those chicken strips are about gone after riding route 144



Aunt Kathryn had prepared lots of food in advance. We were nothing shy of starving when we arrived



Aunt Kathryn is like the Energizer Bunny. She just keeps going and going
At 82 she still works full time at the job she's had for over 60 years! She started out as a nanny for a family in Pittsburgh back in the 40's, and has never left. She's seen them through childbirth and times of death. She's compassionate, strong-willed, and perseveres through whatever hand life deals her

On top of all that, she still mows 2 acres of grass every week at the farm, and cuts her own wood with a chain saw Way to go Auntie!

We sat around the campfire and caught up after dinner
