Taking a break…

While spending the day at Lockhouse 75, Candee and I were fortunate enough to meet this group of thru-riding scouts (plus a few girls and the troop leaders) from Reynoldsburg, Ohio.  They were about nine miles into their journey down the towpath, with plenty of camping and exploring still to come.  One of the leaders told us that he hiked the entire C&O Canal in his youth and has always wanted to bike it.  I haven’t done the thru-ride in a few years, but I understand their excitement.  The 184.5 mile ride should be something they all remember for a lifetime!

    I was one of the biking leaders in this group, we finished up in DC on Saturday. It was a fantastic trip everyone in the group did a great job. We had great weather. Thank you to our 4 adult leaders (not pictured) that was our road Support and Gear (SAG) team that picked all 17 of us up and drop us off each day.

      It makes me happy to see young (and old) people out doing this type of trip–enjoying nature, getting exercise, strengthening friendships, acquiring new skills, and learning a little bit of history along the way!

      Mr. Giles,

      We’re glad that the troop had a great outing. It was fun spending time with you guys. We’ve seen a lot of scouts on the towpath over the years, and they’re the ones who are going to keep places like the C&O thriving in the future.
