IT’S BEEN A QUIET WEEK at the campground, which is they way we like it. Hard to believe that week has gone by so fast. Now it’s back on the bike for the trip home.
The trip up was three days, and it was a pretty hard push at times, without time to stop and look around much, like I did on my May trips. So this trip will take place over four days, starting this afternoon with a short hop back to Mesick and the Mushroom Cap Motel. We’ve driven by the place for 20 years, with the accompanying cracks about its name and such, but the reviews are good, both for the rooms and the food next door. So we’ll see if it lives up to its reputation.
Friday is the longest segment, mostly back down the White Pines State Park trail, and now I know how to avoid the unpaved sections. If all goes well I will spend the night at Grandma’s House, a cozy B&B in Rockford.
East on Saturday through a number of small towns to Charlotte, then back home on Sunday via Eaton Rapids, Stockbridge, and Chelsea.
For those interested, here are links to the maps and directions.
