Day 7. In Mt. Pocono CG. 33.7 miles. Climb of 2270 feet. 8C cooler.
Palmer bikeway near Easton, PA.
. Tonight at Ringing Rock CG, Milford, PA. 57.4 miles, 1670 feet of climbing, but 2800 of descent.
Weather is good, traffic is noticeably denser. Easton is a pleasant city, with many bikeways.
Note:. PA is a bigggg State.
The Delaware River bridge from New Hope, PA to Lambertville, NY.
This is where I finally get to join the route in the book, Bicycling the Atlantic Coast.
Day 9. The weather is still good except for a few warm showers this pm. 48.5 mi, much of it along the Delaware onthe D&L Trail, an old canalway.
Tonight is the only planned motel stop, at Bordentown Motel 6, as there are no campground within 30 miles of Trenton, NJ.
You will be glad to know (maybe?) that the butt boil has resolved itself, thanks to liberal applications of Body Glide, an anti friction stick.
Legs are tired in the mornings, but seem to improve as the day goes on. The mountains are behind me, 380 feet of climb today but 650 of descent.
Just passed through Trenton, where the DA just ruled that a pair in a laundromat who pumped 15 bullets into an assailant were acting in self defence. As one does.
Today, I went down the Cape May Peninsula along the shore. There are an astounding number of houses along the shoreline, 5-6 streets deep, and just above the waterline.
Crossed the Delaware estuary on the ferry, 90 minutes, and am now camped at Cape Henlopen SP. 31.2 miles today.
