Day 9 Vesuvius to Bethnal Camp, Buchanan

Another hilly day and the first really humid day. Great campsite but cold showers. What Is could really do with right now is a long soak in a hot radox bath. Tomorrow is going to be a stinker as thunderstorms are forecast, even hillier and we are staying at a church with no showets. I might just go and knock on somebody's door!!!

Day 8 The Blue Ridge Parkway from Afton to Vesuvias

43 miles of pretty tough riding today with rain in the afternoon so I opted for the 5star accomodation at 15 dollars as you can see in the photo. Conditions were misty and overcast today so great for the hill work but not for panoramic views and photos. The appalachians are beautiful but we really are in 'Deliverance' country here. Even the Americans are scared.
