s24o yeah!

Gathering on Plunkton Road

Heading down North Hollow in Granville

The group got bigger with my sister's kids joining us about 8 miles from the destination.

Sol-nut was amazing, riding 8 miles Saturday, and then 12 miles back on Sunday. 

I took a brief detour to explore the Braintree gap roadway. Its rough stuff, but strangely alluring. I look forward to exploring it further some day.

We encountered a zone of pavé where the mud had gotten bad and the town had to make extensive repairs. It was a fun challenge. 

Our destination was a homestead in Rochester and we settled in as the warm temps of the afternoon started to drop. 

Food, family, and friends. We all got pretty chilly as the sun went down.

A little walk at dusk to warm up and listen to the peepers and woodcocks. After some card games in the tent, we all found our way to bed for an early night's sleep.  

The next morning arrived with brilliant sun and quickly warming temps. Randy set to work making breakfast with his very cool little camp stove. It burns wood which then powers a fan which in turn accelerates the flame. It also creates a electrical power sources to power a device via a USB port. Very cool.

We took our time getting home.
