Day nine - To within twenty six miles of our goal.

Today was a long day. We left the hotel well rested and ready for our journey. Our first stop would be Harper's Ferry. That was twelve miles. I was able to share some of my singing talent with Mike. Not sure he enjoyed it.

We arrived at Harper's Ferry and locked our bikes up and walked across a bridge to a really neat town. The buildings still look lie the original ones from way back. Definitely recommend this place if you get a chance. We ate lunch then walked around for a while.

Then it was time to hit the trail again. Today's trail was a mix ora good solid trail with a lot of mud holes thrown in. He mud really took its toll on us. Took a lot more energy than we expected. We wanted to get within sixteen miles of DC but we were running out of daylight and energy. Guess we have a longer ride tomorrow. Supposedly the trail gets better as we get closer to DC.

Tonight we are sharing our campsite with a gentleman from the Air Force just getting away for a few days.

I am pretty tired so I am gong to end this now. Hope everyone has a great Friday and a wonderful weekend. Maybe I will go camping this weekend.

Zach, I could have used your dirt bike today.

See ya.
