Annual Tour Final Preparations



In seven days I will leave for the annual summer tour.  This one will be loaded with high tech stuff. GPS, a netbook, video and still camera and the newest toy Spot GPS Messenger, a device that sends anyone I wish where I am and my daily route.

I’ll be staying in Harrisburgh, PA on Friday and taking a trip to York, PA for what is arguably the best doughnut possible. From there it’s a short drive to Cumberland, MD where I will board a bus with my bike to Weirton. WV to begin the 6 day bike ride back to Cumberland by way of Pittsburgh.

All the equipment, bike, tent, me , etc. have checked out and all are in good working order. I’m putting in lots of miles am as ready as I have ever been for a tour.   Now all that is left is to listen to the Jeopardy tune for the next week while I’m waiting to ride.
