    Another Campground Reunion

    October 13, 2015 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 27 °C

    We put in a long, hot day gradually climbing for 65 miles through Garberville to get to the Standish Hickey State Park campground, which had an awesome hiker/biker area. We rolled in around 5:30pm and were pleasantly surprised to find a bunch of our cycle touring friends also camped there. We also met Austin and Janie and admired Austin's Xtracycle bike. We went on a "beer run" after dark to the convenience store across the street and Austin demonstrated the passenger option of his bike with Daniel surfing on the back.
