My father met me out on the road the other day and loaded all my panniers into his car allowing me to ride light into Pennsylvania. We decided to meet in the town of Carrolton for lunch. We enjoyed some of the best BBQ Ohio had to offer. Riding light thru the hills was a nice change of pace, I was able to climb hills much faster without all my luggage. For those of you that might be curious, my bike, with all the gear, weighs about eighty pounds.
I am currently enjoying time with my family and will resume my trek to DC on the 20th.
