Yesterday was a better day, no rain, no tooth problems, so we took a 30 mile drive to Mt. Vernon and the the start of the Kokosing Gap Trail. This is a 13.5 mile paved Rails-to-Trails that ends in Danville.
The trail follows the Kokosing River most of the way and there are several railroad trestles with great views of the river. It is mostly wooded with a few areas of corn fields and farms. Very rural and not many people on a weekday.
If you make it all the way to Danville and continue on a couple blocks into town, there is a soft serve ice cream shop, which of course we had to try. It was an enjoyable 27 mile ride. Then we met Kim at Mellow Mushroom last night for pizza and a couple beers. I’m sure we more than wiped out all those calories we burned on the ride.
We had a nice surprise yesterday when we got an email from Mastercard telling us they are sending a check for $185 for our broken camera. It was out of the one year Panasonic warranty, but since we purchased it with our Mastercard, which extends the warranty another year, it was still covered. Jim spent a good bit of time on the phone trying to get the claim filed, but it was worth it in the end. Now we just have to make a decision on a camera.
