Once more back across the country from the Black Hills of South Dakota all the way to the Washington, DC area for the Adventure Cycling Association's C&O Canal / Great Allegheny Passage Tour.
Boy I tell you we we've been doing so many jobs out west with low humidity that when we crossed the Mississippi we felt like we just entered a world of wet!
Anyways we catered for the approximately 80 folks that rode up the path of the C&O Canal and Great Allegheny passage from Washington, DC all the way to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. A fun trip that we've always enjoyed. In fact we got our mobile kitchen just so we could (and did) cater trips like this.
Just finished up catering a seven day trip for 57 riders and staff around the Black Hills of South Dakota. We started with dinner and breakfast in Rapid City and then headed to the "legendary" town of Deadwood (of Buffalo Bill and Calamity Jane fame). Then we were off to Hill City -- a quaint little town just down the road from Mount Rushmore and the Crazy Horse Memorial.
Then we headed to Hot Springs -- nice town but the riders tented in a city park and we were in a parking lot that meant we were on generators the whole night -- but hey, that's what we do.
Off to Custer State Park, a beautiful place that hosted the summer White House for Calvin Coolidge. Though we did see a few buffalo this year it was not like last year where we got into a traffic jam that was engendered by a herd of over 500 buffalo that decided to wander through. It's tough getting to a job through such a natural impediment!
After Custer we headed back to Hill City (great place btw, Crooked Creek RV Park and Resort.) The riders then went on to their end destination in Rapid City. We stayed in Hill CIty and heading east on Tuesday to do the Adventure Cycling's C&O Canal Tour.
