Pack Job #1

So I might be getting a little over-excited about our trip. I decided I wanted to pack everything up to see how and where everything fits best, etc, etc. We’re actually trying to decide whether we can do without the BOB trailer or not. So far things are looking a little snug, so we’re debating getting a “rack pack” that would fit over the back rack and panniers. We also have a few items that we might be able to do without or make smaller. Decisions decisions. ~Linda

Weekend Bike Tour: A Portion of the C&O Canal Trail

2013-08-31 09.07.44

To begin practicing and preparing for our cross-country bicycle trip, we went on a mini bike-touring trip along the C&O Canal Trail in August.  We drove to and camped here at Antietam Creek Campground for the night.  In the morning we packed up our gear and headed out.  There was beautiful scenery along the way including the train tunnel at Harpers Ferry and the big mountain that it is carved into.  We went swimming in the Potomac River.  We bicycled to Whites Ferry where we set up camp for the second night and then biked back  the next day.
