Planning my CO GAP Daily Miles
I have Monday through Sunday available in August. I will leave Pittsburgh on Amtrak to travel to DC. I will then start my journey on Monday after arrival in DC.
Camping or Beds?
This is the big queston! See how many miles can I pedal? Camping gives me more options. But I am travelling solo. Which only bugs me..a bit. If I camp, I have to bring camping gear. More weight. If I choose to stay inside, I have to make the mileage every day, to get to my reserved indoor space.
Amtrak to DC Monday
Bike to Miles 48-55 Point of Rocks, Brunswick, Maryland-camp
Bike to Mile 99 Williamsport, Maryland Hotel Room.
Bike to Mile 141 Little Orleans, Maryland, Camp.
Bile to Cumberland, Maryland Mile 184-hotel room
Great Allegheny Passage
Bike to Rockwood Pennsylvania Mile 44-camp
Bike to Connelsville, Pennsylvania Mile 88-hotel room
Bike to Pittsburgh, mile 135.
The basic plan is camp-room-camp-room-camp-room. If I don’t get clean on my camping days, I will at least shower every two days.
Plan H-The Husband Plan
The husband has made a gesture that he wants to join me. And by joining me, he means being my sag wagon and driving a vehicle, joining me at my hotel rooms in the evening. If Plan H occurs, then I shall have a room at either a B&B on my camp days-like Leesburg, Paw Paw, Rockwood. The H Plan makes it very easy for me, as I wouldn’t have to carry camp gear, or extra clothes.
I am training with the intention of going solo. The husband will have to make up his mind sooner than later, so I can reserve hotel rooms for the camping days. Stay tuned to see what plan is finally chosen!
