Double the Fun - Day 390

Bill and I started with a trip across the Mackinac Bridge. It was beginning to get windy, and they lined up a convoy of "high-profile" vehicles, and then escorted us across. Being escorted across the Bridge was a first for both Bill and me. I guess the point was to make us move slowly. We stayed at about 20 mph all the way across.

We reached our new location near Petoskey and got the trailers set up. Then... guess who showed up?! Bob is feeling well enough after his rugged health issue of the fall and winter (he was going to do the Border Route with us all last year, but couldn't) to come today. Bob and Bill and me! Check out the colors of Little Traverse Bay behind us.

On the rail trail, we passed a little free library with a roof made of old skis. Adorable! And of course I had to find a book to take.

I managed to leave my camera in my car when we decided to take the guys' two cars, so I missed some really nice pictures today. O well.

The walking was mostly bare surfaces with some snow-covered rail trail. My sorest leg is glad we stopped when we did, but it's OK. The wind made things feel super-cold, but we were fine. Bob may join us again tomorrow too.

Miles today: 8.1 Total miles so far: 4399.3.

See Thanks

I like the picture of the three of you.
That free library is cute.

Lulu: "That's a very winter-themed little library!"

So happy to see you on the trail again with good friends. Hiking mountains today in Colorado in the snow and thinking of you. Hope to hike with you again.
