Bill and Ed’s Big Adventure, Day 9
So day 9 did not work out to be such a great day. Our plan was to head out of camp early and make it to Boone to meet up with the owner of Boone Bike and Touring my old friend Shaw and his wife Sarah. The problem was Bill was feeling a little under the weather so we ended up leaving late and riding slow. By lunch time we worried we would not make it to Boone and were thinking about just finding a place to camp. Lucky for us the resturant we stopped in had WiFi so we connected and sent a message to Shaw looking for suggestions. He was busy and said he would respond later so we headed back out on the road thinking we would not get his response. After a few hours of riding the response came in the form of Sarah driving on the Parkway and saving us the last 10 to 15 miles into Boone. Looking back, I think we would have made it but as luck would have it, Sarah saved us right before it started to rain and got us to there house in time to clean up and have a great dinner.
Thanks Shaw and Sarah!!
And the drinks and the dinner party were the icing on the cake!
