Hello! I'm riding my bike from Jersey City, NJ to Astoria, OR this summer. I'll be blogging about my experiences along the way and drastically improving my farmer's tan.

free food and nice folks
As I pulled into my campground on Day 7 I asked these people for directions to the registration office and they, in turn, offered me friend chicken, pasta salad, and lemonade.
Is everyone in VA this nice?
After I'd set up camp and was off to take a shower I ran into Dave and Kim. Two Chicago transplants living in the area and out camping for the weekend. They were gracious enough to invite me to their camp to sample some crab they'd just caught that day. We ate steamed crab, mac and cheese, and some strawberry rhubarb pie. It was all amazingly delicious and I was so honored by their generosity.
