I awoke to a little too much room in the tent this morning and to the smell of smoke. Frankenbutt woke up early and set about re-starting last night’s campfire. Although it wasn’t raining, the air was still damp and it felt like it was about 55 degrees out. I pulled my hoodie on and climbed out of my snuggly sleeping bag and crawled out the tent. It was so nice to warm up next to the fire. Thank you, Frankenbutt!!
Since we still haven’t found camp fuel along our route, we stopped at the campground store and bought single serving cereals and a quart of milk to share. Not a hot breakfast, not the best breakfast but not bad. We broke camp easily; It’s nice that we’re all getting our roles down pat. After eating, we looked at the Google maps website on my phone and at the GPS directions and plotted out the next few days.
As part of our route planning, we have to figure out how many miles we need to ride to put us at an affordable lodging spot, along our way. Considering we have no planned BMX track stops in the week ahead (there are no NBL tracks in this area), we just need to make it to the Hershey, PA area by the weekend. We are meeting BMXers from Trilogy Park (and hopefully Hagerstown, MD track, too) on Sunday, June 19th for some awesome coaster riding at Hershey Park.
The Beast glanced at her watch enough times to make me realize that she had a plan. Apparently, one of our favorite shows, “The Office”, was having a 3 hour marathon on TV tonight. We made it back by 8pm to catch the first episode but I think we’ll all be asleep before the last episode finishes at 11pm.
