Catching up, yet again, from sets a couple months back - In April my dad and I went out on a 90 mile weekend bike quest. Dad isn't much of a biker - he got his bike for Christmas and had put about 10 miles on it before we set out on the trip, despite my nagging for him to get at least 50 miles clocked on his bike computer. Amazingly, though, we got 45 miles in the first day, though we had to walk the last few due to very sore legs. On our trail, the C&O Canal, we had to get that far to get my weary father to the closest clean bed.
Our lunch spot on day 1. This is a school cafeteria that had been turned into the only restaurant in town.

The second day we hit major storms and did a mere 15 miles.
Our B&B host graciously offered to drive us around the small town and to an overlook
This critter followed us for about 10 miles from the B&B to the next town. Hopefully he got home fine. He seemed like he knew what he was doing.

He was a champ. The trip was a challenge for him, and I appreciate him taking the effort to do that trip with and for me.
