3 days, 212 miles, 2 sunburns, 1 heckle and 0 trips to the bushes
We pulled our screamin' behemoth Rans out of its 8-year sleep and credit card toured Maryland this week. The little ones were with grandparents so no stops at the kitchy stores or every bathroom.
Our best response in a small southern MD town, one woman to another at a gas station across the street: "Ain't that somethin'?"
Our worst moment: crazy youth heckling us out of their beat up tan Mazda as they sped past us on a tiny country road with no shoulder.
Our scariest moment: coming to this bridge and having to go over it.

One of the reasons we bike: treats! Have you ever seen such a tiny cone...it was perfect.
