Rode out to the Marshland Road boat launch today, 25.3 miles, via a slightly different route than the last Marshland Road trip. [View Route]

By this date last year, I had 237 miles on the bike. With today’s ride, I’m at 430 miles for 2007.

Back on May 6, the Marshland Road boat launch was pretty messy; there was a lot of mud that made it virtually impossible to get to the river to launch a canoe. It looked better this evening. I think Thing One and I would be able to get the canoe into or out of the river without sinking up to our knees in the muck. It still looked pretty muddy below water-level. If the rivers drops much from its current level (a little over 5′), we might have trouble at this launch area.
