GUEST SPEAKER:

Jacob, Anthony and Alex from Boy Scout Troop 513 spoke and presented a video presentation about their recent “Washington to Pittsburgh” bike trip.  This was the fourth and, thus far, most ambitious trip for the crew.  Starting out in Washington, D.C. they traveled to Antietam, Kentuck Nob, Falling Waters, Harper’s Ferry and the Pittsburgh Shipping Yards.

Especially enjoyable was the time spent in Washington visiting the various Memorials along the Washington Mall area.  Of questionable joy was the camping aspects which proved to be a taxing and time consuming challenge.  Traveling 200 miles in total, the scouts witnessed amazing scenery, various wildlife and few (but some) minor injuries and catastrophies.  Those who had not previously done so, earned their Cycling Merit Badge for their efforts.

Sounded and looked like fun.  Congratulations to the participants.
