Day Seven - Little Orleans to south of Williamsport

Last night the sleeping was much better. The weather cooled down and I had use use m snuggie. Mike was actually the first out of his tent this morning. I know, hard to believe. But I ended up waiting for him to get everything ready to leave. We ended up leaving around 10:30.

The first three miles or so was back on the bumpy canal trail. Then we cut over to the Western Maryland Rail Trail which was twenty Tao miles of asphalt trail. What a great treat his was. We took his trail into Hancock where we ate lunch at Weavers. Great food and a haven for bicyclist.

After lunch we stopped by the bike shop where I met some workcampers. Great stories they told.

Then onto the trail for the remainder of the paved trail then back onto the canal path. We traveled twenty five more miles to our current canal campground. Another hot and stisky night in the woods with the trumpeting crickets.

Today we traveled close to fifty miles. Our longest day yet. Nice campsite and we do have a single fellow that just pulled up and is making this his stopping point for the evening also.

Lets hope it cools down tonight. I am thinking it might a little.

Night all.
