Lisbon, OH to Washington, PA
75 miles

"You picked a helluva day for a bike ride." [someone on the side of the road to Mike Weston]

Today was pretty tough, due to a combination of hills, heat (91 degrees F), and humidity (the three H's). We started by saying goodbye to our very gracious hosts, Earle and Jacki, and then we hit the hills. Several of us had lunch at a market/deli in Hooksville, and then we continued on to Washington. Then after one final hill we made it to the KOA where we are camped.
