Picnic update

So in just a few hours (too few, I think at times, and a moment later think too many -- that's the adrenaline, I suspect) the bikeable feast will begin!

For those who are thinking of meeting us at the picnic site around lunchtime -- noon-ish -- let's meet at the Great Falls Tavern Visitors Center (between locks 19 and 20), just shy of mile marker 15 on the C&O tow path. There looks to be a car entrance near Rte 189 (Falls Road). It may be a bit later, depending on how quickly I move with all of this stuff and how my sacrifice to the eggbeater pedal gods works out. What? You can't tell me I have to leave my complete collection of antique anvils and lead bricks behind.... Sure, they add a little weight, but next to the cooking stuff I have with me, they seem to take up less space. (How do I pack for a year on a bike, you ask? Many, many times. Luckily the dancing shoes still made the cut.)

I'm just doing a few final adjustments on Ollie now. She's looking good. Steady. Confident.

See you cyclists at Thompson's boat house around 9, and the rest of you at Great Falls!
