Day 14

 The rest of my trip will be hit or miss. I'll be jumping on and off trail. I really wanted to do a through hike but life at home goes on. I had a great hike through some of the Sinking Creek Section Tuesday with former High School teacher Jan Bundy Ferguson.
 Will return to the trail at Hocking Hills Sunday - Monday after going to Buckeye Trail Fest on Saturday.

In the foothills of the Alleghenies

Ft. Hill

The hike took us over and through that ridge. Up and down up and down.

Day 13.  Got to see where John Glenn was born.  Here is his Statue:

Went about 70 miles today to end at Leesville lake.  Have decided to be picked   up so I can be home for Easter.  I will finish the trail later.  Trail; getting rough and dogs chasing me.

Day 12:  Well once again traveled about 65 miles.  Trail is really nice here.Made it to Massillon today.  There was a bike shop next to path called Earnies and they let me camp behind them.  Feel like a hobo.

Day 11.   Traveled about 65 miles today on my bike.  Moved slow because it was cold.  Stopped at friends Laura and Dave Earley in Cleveland.  Saw a sign that said 654 miles to Cinti.  Evan though I am more than half way there it seems sooo far.

A guy helped me across this bridge:

Day 10.  Well, got up to snow and cold.  It rain/snowed all night.  I was warm but water was seeping in.  Biked ( talk about cold) 3 miles to diner to eat breakfast. Kind of stuck around most of morning trying to stay warm and trying to figure out my next step.  Diner worker said lake affect snow coming later today along with freezing temperatures.  Not equipped with enough winter bike gear to be riding in this. So I went back and packed up and went about 1/2 mile to a campground and got a cabin.  Cold but dry in here.  So I am in the Findley State Park still.  At least tomorrow I have a friend, Dave and Laura Earley to stay with.

Day 9.  Not much to report today.  Got about 60 miles on my bike before the rain hit and so set up camp.  Hoping to go into town for some food. I am at Finlay Lake Campground.  Hoping for NO snow.
