Sunday, October 15th, 2017. Another superb camping trip at Breaks Park on the KY/VA border with friends Joe, Will and Kevin.  The best weather imaginable with sunshine and temps in the upper sixties.  Joe and I went for a stellar trail run that took us past one of the park's overlooks.  On Friday night, we sat out at an overlook watching the stars in total darkness.  Saturday night we cooked a great meal in camp that included grilled chicken, fried apples, roasted brussel sprouts, salad and more.

Saturday, October 7th, 2017. I completed my first century ride, The Tour de Bland.  100 miles, 6,926ft.  It took six hours and 34 minutes.  It went well, other than a serious leg cramp at mile 96 while making the final climb.
