Thursday morning report from the fields on Antietam

Good morning from the shores of the Potomac near the Antietam Battlefield in Maryland. Yesterday was a good but often bumpy ride from Fort Frederick. We were challenged by a 6 mile road detour though beautiful rolling farmland. Although beautiful it was tough on hybrid bikes loaded with 50 pounds of gear.

My pal Aaron who took us in last night cycled to Williamsport with us. We had a delightful lunch at Desert Rose Cafe. He turned and returned and we cycled on.

This morning we are off to Harper’s Ferry with Point of Rocks as our final destination of the day. We are approaching D.C.
