3 wolf-fivers (jess, lance, christiane)
1 part havre de grace, md
2 days susquehanna state park
2 visits biller's bikes with a bit of walt
3 mountain bikes
18 miles biking on trails
9 miles hiking on trails
2 trips nonnie's
1 glorious moon rise
1 plastic tiara
a pinch of water play and log crossing
a handful of vines
a bit of mischief
drive to havre de grace, md, to meet walt of biller's bikes. discover that he is everything a hippie should be who just opened the best - if not only - bike rental shop near perry point, md. rent mountain bikes + accessories for two days. strap the goods to vehicle and drive to the park. make cc's first trail biking attempt with jess and lance for company. take several breaks for water play, exploring, and log crossing. lance and cc fall in river. bike more. go to nonnie's in wet/dirty clothes for pizza, eggplant delicious parmesan, and cheesy garlic bread. camp covertly (not allowed in park until memorial day). watch moon rise over susquehanna river. hike and vine climb all morning. cc falls to ground when vine breaks while repelling up tree. bike all afternoon. upon returning bikes, get tour of historic building in which walt and mara of biller's bikes live/work. eat at nonnie's again in same (even dirtier) bike clothes. camp again. find plastic tiara sitting on bridge railing as exit park to return home.
simmer in memories of one grand adventure. omg.
happy easter all!
You may ask yourself, "How did I get here?". - I'm going to tell you all about L'Eroica California in painstaking detail: Just not now. I will say though that I've given a lot to cycling over the years...
