Very pleasent story you just posted on your favorite type of riding, and the reasons why. The way you travel is the way it is supposed to be done. You take your time, and enjoy the things along the way. That gives you memories that always accompanies great stories  of the adventures you experienced via biking. If you would please, i,am curious as to how you carried all that stuff. Please share with us how you did that. I like the i dea of keeping a journal, nice idea. Again share with us how you carried all that stuff. I,am eager to hear your response.  :)

Just want to voice an opinion on grabaawr. Not the best tour in the country. Pit fall, To much hustle and bustle. As i have learned from experience, and others tell me when i entered bike touring. Enjoy the ride, get out of the saddle, set no time limits, and stop to smell the roses, and great the people. If your in it to just pack on miles, one can do that by car. So the pitfall to grabaawr, is the hustle and bustle. I put on 500 miles in sevendays, and had very little fun. Since i rode on my own time table, which does not exist, i have had more enjoyment. Anyone else feel the same.  :(

I do not see it as an issue. Your cycling during the prime fall color season. Stop and enjoy them. Also, there are plenty of fall events to partake in while treveling down this way. Take time to enjoy those. Good luck on the ride.  :)

Never use an air horn in ,or around amish people. As we all know amish main source of transportation, is by horse and buggy. The audible from the horn will startle the horse, putting the rider in great danger. And we do not want  that to happen.  :)

Well try not to sprey up wind. And god forbid, but if you should get the sprey in your eyes,or some one elses by accident. Belive it or not, Use milk to flush the eyes, milk nutralizes the chemical. Now some tricks i have learned as an alternate solution to hault. Is cold water. ,Or and air horn. However, i do not recomend using the horn in amish country. No need to explain why i,am sure.

Beer wether it is low carb , or what ever. It has alchohol in it. That list it as a diaretic, cyclist need carbs, Having a low carb beer, and the alchohol content for which it contains, double whammie. No wonder you felt crummy. Forget the beer, try water, and milk, ect, ect, pasta, anything but beer. You have just ridden alot of miles, your body has used up the fuel it needsa to keep you going, the carbs, time to rest and replace the what your body has spent. So you feel refrshed the day or so. Hoe you feel better, enjoy your next ride. Have a great day. And saty away from the beer.  :)

Lightening bolt hits water. What a shocking experience. I hope your riding partner was ok when the head injury happened. My most scary experience heppend when i was watching the scenery behind me, and i hit a parked car. Bike stayed be hind the car, i flew over the top of the car, and landed in the front. Road rsh face, how was i going to explain that. Then two months later i hit a pole, while watching the scenery, Vioce went to a higher octive for a moment. My buddies i was ridding with heard the crash, and saw what was walking away, and new how the whole thing happened.  :blush:
