C&O Canal and GAP Ride - Day 7 - Breakfast

On our final morning, we fixed coffee, but otherwise decided to skip breakfast in the campground. Our plan was to ride a couple miles to the little town of Dawson and sit down and have a proper breakfast. After navigating a herd of stray cattle,we rode into town, only to find that there was no place to eat. I tried to approach the only person I saw and ask directions. When the lady saw me riding toward her, she spun around and hastily walked to the back of her house. That was odd.

We got back on the trail and headed for West Newton, some 20 miles away. We made it there around 10 AM and then enjoyed a really nice breakfast. As we were eating, guess who walks in - Ed and Deb (Tandem Couple from Ohio) and Ed's Dad, who was there to pick them up. We visited a bit, bid them farewell and hit the trail for the final leg of our trip.

We had a mere 20 miles to go to McKeesport and over 2 hours to get there. we had plenty of time and hence rode at a very easy clip.
