NY-Montreal Trekkers Shop & Play in Burlington,VT

Blog Day 10:
Today, we rode a solid 33 miles into the heart of the city of Burlington, VT. On the way, we stopped at Little City Cycles for two new racks, more friendship bracelet creations, and some light journaling and reading. Utilizing Burlington’s extensive two-lane bike paths, we rode along the coast of Lake Champlain onward to the nearest beach. Only a couple miles from the downtown area, we decided to take to foot and roamed the streets of Burlington. Some of the guys went to the local music store (Avi finally got to play the drums and Caleb bought a harmonica). The rest of us explored a giant outdoor sports outlet and walked around some more. As our stomachs began to growl, we hopped back on our bikes and rode another short mile into North Beach Campground and started the process of cooking dinner (fried rice with meat and vegetables). Unfortunately at this point, we discovered that we were down to about half a can of propane left. So each leader (and Elliot) set off on two separate expeditions to purchase fresh fuel for our hardworking cook crew. By the end of the night, everyone was full of fried rice, peach pudding pie (courtesy of our dessert chef, Caleb), and the sounds of fireworks going off nearby. We’re all looking forward to more miles on the bike path tomorrow and celebrating the Fourth of July.
