Off We Go

Photo from here:

Leaving for Shop Teacher Bob's Big Adventure. Off to Pennsylvania and all points south east along the trail. I'm in pretty good shape, looks like some good weather for the first couple of days and I need to get away. I've got a digital and an old film camera I'm packing along so I should be able to get some good photos. I always keep a diary of my journeys so I'll have plenty to write about when I get back. We're planning on about 50 miles per day, depending on where the campgrounds are located. Should be able to get sunburned and stinky without too much trouble. Hopefully it won't be like the Natchez Trace where we had to go three days without a shower in the heat and humidity (the old bike shorts were getting a little yeasty by then). We're renting a room for tonight, so I should be able to catch the Blackhawks win the Stanley Cup and start the trail fully rested. Should lose a couple of pounds along the way, so I'll be ready to start the marathon training when I return. Man, I'm one lucky son of a gun.

Rock on, people. Get out there and have yourself an adventure as well.
