Halloween Ride and Camp 2015

In the DC area, Halloween night always seems to be first cold night of the fall. Even trick-or-treating Superman has to wear his winter coat (Supermom makes him do it). Summer and even “Indian Summer” are gone and winter is just around the corner.

To push the summer as far as possible, Joe Cafferty planned a Halloween night camping trip to West Virginia. Due to the timing of the Halloween festivities and the possible cool temps, we had no other adventurous spirits to do the full camp but Joe and me. Luke and Court started the ride with us – up River Road to White’s Ferry – but turned back after lunch at Melt in Leesburg, VA.

The ride to WVA had a chill in the air, but the scenery made up for it. The gravel grade road up to the campground was amazing.

There were no “Blair Witch Project” scares in the woods on all hallows eve – but a 2 am rain did awaken my slumber. Probably just mother nature telling me to set my clocks back to Standard Time.

A hearty breakfast at the Papermill Diner in Winchester, VA and we were back on our way home. And reluctantly welcoming the winter weather back to the East coast.
