We are sitting at a picnic table at Camp Hatteras Campground in Rodanthe, NC this Tuesday morning November 22nd.  The wifi is strong and our most recent photos from the past few days are uploaded.  The campground we are at was covered in over 4 feet of water during Hurricane Irene.  Yesterday was the first […]


On Monday afternoon November 14th we checked into a campsite at Chippokes State Park.  It had been a super windy day of riding so we decided to end early and enjoy a Virginia State Park.  The place was practically deserted and we took advenatage of the bike paths within the park to explore with our […]

It’s raining outside and I’m cozy by the fire at the home of the Friedrichs in Lexington, Virginia.  John and Suzanne are the parents of our good friend Ira, who we will stay with very soon when we arrive in Asheville, North Carolina sometime next week. We’ve learned to be rather vague with our scheduling.  […]
