Apparently, the theme of the day was "those that ride BLUE bikes".





Meh, Yellow is fastest (and I sold my only blue bike last week...)

Water Crossing:
Billy Diving in!


Bravo on the save

Lil pit stop at Fort Ritchie

Dream a little dream at High Rock

Apparently, quite a few novice hang gliders don't "glide" so well off here..

About High Rock:
39.69599N / 77.51333W (End of Penn Marr High Rock Rd, Cascade, MD)
The Appalachian Trail will cross the road
an opportunity to generate traffic and place western Maryland in the resort business, the railroad built a wooden observation tower in 1879. According the brochure, you could see 2000 square miles on a clear day
Riders Up!



Overall, I busted the lunch stop. There was no food there, however, never a worry. We went around the corner to the store serving the camp ground. There we watched a guy that had been hoofing the Appalachian trail since April eat and entire 1/2 gallon of ice cream while we waited for our burgers. He says he's gotten faster since he started, and now closes 20 miles in under 4 hrs

The track was fab (A big thanks to Lisa and Lakota). I think I might try to tweak the homeward bound track. Gettysburg was a complete zoo!

Aside from a passing shower on the trek home, the weather was absolutely B.E.A.U.T.I.F.U.L!!

PS I hear that Porcupine has a 100 mile dirt trek around Leesburg that maybe we can get him to lead us on
