I can't really do any Summer events working at the shop. I'm putting in 60 hour weeks as it is just to take off for PBP. Winter is easy because there's now a lot to do.

how was riding along skyline drive?

we drove a portion this spring from the north entrance south to do some backpacking in shenandoah.

weren't the shoulders pretty tight, with lots of blind curves...and loaded with tourists gawking at views driving less than carefully...

I leave tomorrow afternoon. Route is 1200k with 33k of climbing. Less than the 600 we just did and twice as long so that suits me well. 90 hour limit. Depending what the legs and crowd is like, I may go to Brest in a single push, take a full night's rest, then do the return to Rambouillet. Otherwise, the route is split into 3 400k Segments.
