Perkiomen Trail

Our first stop after emptying our house prior to settlement and moving into our RV full-time was the 2017 Philadelphia Folk Festival near Schwenksville, PA, which gave me another opportunity to run the upper sections of the Perkiomen Trail in Montgomery County (southeastern Pennsylvania). Farm field camping at the 2017 Philadelphia Folk Festival I have …

Not severe cold -- low 30s to start and barely 40 to finish, and it didn't start raining until after I drove away, thank goodness! It was a small field of a little more than 300 finishers -- …
