Progress and sadness. I have several routes to ride from my house that are quiet (6 cars can pass me in 1.5 hours) but the US 64 Bypass is killing me. Today I realized I am about to lose this road when this bridge over the bypass opens…. I would prefer to mountain bike!

As the meme says – “I want someone to look at me like I look at my truck.”

During tennis tonight, I found myself looking at my truck too much, my truck makes me happy, takes me to places and people I want to see and is my happy place. I think I have a problem!

Heading home… packed up camp in the rain, lunch in Asheville, dry stuff at home. In all, in 8 days we drove 1160 miles, spent 3 days with more than 11 hours away from camp, including one day we never drove on a paved road, hiked to 4 waterfalls: a good vacation!
