    Camping near Catawba Creek 702.4

    June 18, 2017 in the United States

    That was an intense day!! We managed to get up as early as planned and already had 10 miles at our lunch break. Today was special because of one of the most picturesque places along the AT, the dragon's tooth. A huge obelisk that is climbable and has an amazing 360 degree view to all the surrounding area.
    By the time we got there it was already 7:30 PM so we both quickly got up there and took some pictures. And we almost peed ourselves because it was super scary up there with the wind blowing just a few steps away from a quite certain death. But we survived this experience and got some really nice pictures. With our bodies still flooded with adrenaline we headed for the descent but who knew that this would rush our blood even more... Now we needed to climb down steep - and sometimes a bit slippery - rocks with our 40 pounds backpacks!! We could almost see the blood splatters at the bottom :o And somewhere there on the way down we crossed the 700 miles line :)
    Especially the way down this trail literally killed my feet. We're not quite sure what it is but there are blisters, trench feet and holes in my feet. I hope this will get better soonish :)

    Niagra Falls

    April 12 in the United States

    We left Toronto in freezing conditions and luckily had only 80 miles to ride to Niagra. The weather was terrible, cold with heavy rain. It did clear briefly by the time we reached Niagra. After checking into a Days Inn we then walked to the falls. They were amazing but it was so cold the maid of the mist wasn't running. We did however go behind the falls and take some pictures. There was a lot of ice in the river belowRead more

    Skyline Drive

    April 15 in the United States

    We set off early this morning so we could do some of this beautiful ride. It was cloudy but nice and warm. The trees were still dormant so we could see the views through them. We had looked at the weather and knew there was a storm in the afternoon. We just managed to reach our hotel, and while checking in the heavens opened. A lucky escape

    Virginia backroads

    September 19, 2015 in the United States

    On our way to Charlottesville, we noticed that Blacksburg was right off the road. Matthew, our nephew, had gone to school there. It was supposed to be a nice town. We decided to get off at that exit and just see the place.
    Who would expect a small city to have so much traffic?? And first we had to drive through Christianburg, which was having a STREET FAIR, for which streets were closed on our route. We got turned around, driving up steep narrow streets to nowhere before we got righted. Then, as we were dodging more unexpected traffic we both began sniffing the air. OH NO … what is WITH the SKUNKS in this area!? Let me just say, once again, Rest in Peace. We didn’t do it. But we were boxed in and we couldn’t avoid adding insult to injury. Fortunately the odor did not cling.
    We drove by Virginia Tech, but it dissappeared in a hurry, and all of a sudden, there was no more town! Heather pulled out the map, scowled and scoured the fine print, and said, “For sooth! A scenic drive there be but mere meters from here!” Gordon rolled his eyes, and said, “Great! Let’s GO!”
    It was truly a scenic drive, narrow, rough, rolling hills, and actually plenty of scenery, not just trees. The photos don’t do it justice … all the good ones were blurred. But we KNEW it had been a scenic drive when, at the end of the day, we opened the trailer and it was a DISASTER! Think Lucy and her trailer ride when she collected rocks. Bins all over. Socks on the floor. Open the food cupboard and it all came tumbling out. We fear the raisins are lost forever in the Raisin Bran. At least we couldn’t find any … probably the bottom third is raisins.
    But it was a glorious ride and we’re glad we took it.
