I took a break here, about the half way point. Nice of someone to carry in some chairs.
Answered a few emails, posted a picture on Facebook:
the trail was so overgrown and dense with quick growth, that I'd have to just lower my head and push through on foot. Covered at time in so many webs I felt like a Christmas tree covered in tinsel. Not much I could do about it, just plod on.
in the end almost 50 miles, Belmont, Wiss, Gladwyne, more Wiss, and home, to a big lunch, almost 5hrs out, alone, just me the bike and the visit with the robot.
