Uphill and Against the Wind - TransAm E-W
By Dave T

Day 3: Ashland to Lake Anna - No 3 mile Islands please

Monday May 19, 1986, 49 miles (79 km) - Total so far: 151 miles (243 km)

Woke up early this morning, about 6:30am and Gene from Bikecentennial was already up. We decided to get some breakfast together and then head up to Lake Anna. The weather is very hot and humid, and a cloudy threatening look to the sky.

The ride was pretty good and the terrain was rolling with some elevation gain. Traffic was on and off most of the ride so overall not a bad day.

I rode with Gene from the Bikecentennial Group most of the day, as our riding pace was just about even. Gene is 56 years old from Vancouver B.C.. Gene is a real character and you'd never know he was 56. I really enjoyed the riding company today and I'll probably be around this group for a few days as our plans are just about the same for the next week or so.

The rain held off until we arrived at the Lake Anna Family Campground, it then rained off and on the rest of the night. I found out that there was a nuke plant about mile away, better not be any 3 mile islands tonight.

Talked to Mom and Dad tonight, this is my first call home. They were happy to hear from me and that everything is going pretty good. I told them I'd probably be riding with a bunch of people for a week or so, and I think they were relieved to hear from me.

I'm a little tired today so I'll hit the bag early tonight to be ready for a 70 mile day tomorrow.

Road less traveled

[Author's Note] As I head west the journal will become more interesting and the pictures more plentiful
