We had planned to have our first rest day in Bainbridge. It was part of the “train while you ride” system. But the weather looked better for Thursday than it did for Friday, so we decided to move our rest day and make the ride to Oneonta while the sun was still shining.
We had breakfast at Bob’s Diner in Bainbridge, and were ready to go by 8:45am. Or so we thought.
Somehow, overnight, the trike has developed a flat tire. We have several theories as to how this happened, but it really doesn’t matter. The tire has to be fixed!
Tim changes the tire and I document the event. This is a story for later. . . or at least news about the trip.
The GPS is started,
and we’re on our way – Goodbye Bainbridge.
I took these pictures along the road – as we moved out of town and on toward Unadilla.
We admire her determination. The hills we climbed were nothing!!
A field too wet to plow.
Highlights of our trip through Unadilla.
On the other side of town it looks like hay – the first cutting!
At WellsBridge Road we cross the river and follow along the south side for several miles. There are some ups and downs, but there is much less traffic and the scenery just as interesting.
Tim really likes this car. Is it a Buick?
We stop for refreshment and adjustments. While Tim works, I photograph and admire. . .
What a beautiful car!
The gentleman who owns it has done all the restorations himself. Here he explains to Tim how in order to paint the car you have to take all the body parts off, paint them, and then put it back together again.
Happy Trails to you!
And to us! See the branches. We have a tail wind:-)
We arrive in Oneonta, safe and tired. The gentleman who checks us in offers a garage for our trike. This is incredibly fortunate because there is a wild thunderstorm that night. We are dry and so is our tricyle.
We do nothing but sleep, eat, visit Walmart, and work on this blog for all of Friday.
Tomorrow morning, we leave again. This time for Stamford,
