Quick Note - Monday, June 29

Hi all: This is just a quickie temporary note to let you know I'm still plugging away up the Blue Ridge Parkway, almost to the halfway mile marker. (The BRP is 469.1 miles long, so the halfway marker is about 235.) It's *bee-yoo-tee-ful,* but it's also a tough ride, especially at the "end" (where I actually started - I'm going from south to north, which is sort of backwards). Anyways, there's no wi-fi along the BRP except a weak signal I found at the Doughton Park Cafe. I expect I'll take at least several *more* days before I reach civilization, again, so I'm going to have to ask you to be patient for the updates after Danielsville, GA. In the meantime, be good, stay well, and have a wunnerful, wunnerful summer! ;-Don

I drove a bit of the Blue Ridge Parkway years ago. It's wonderful country!

Hi Mike: Yes it is! I'm going to miss it when I have to reinsert myself into more urban terrain.

Hello Don, we met on the parkway between Rt. 221 and 220. I had the tribrid bike. The best of adventure to you. I know people that don't go more than 40 miles in their CAR.

Hi Redwine357: Yeah, I don't blame 'em - that's one TOUGH road! I can hardly believe I did it - it was the toughest part of the entire trip, so far. ;-Don
