Wisconsin to DC in September
I'm (hopefully) setting off tomorrow on a solo trek from Baraboo, Wisconsin to Washington D.C. My goal is to reach our nation's capital in time for the Sept. 24 peace rally. My itinerary is flexible, but I plan to take the ferry across Lake Michigan and then visit family across southern Michigan before entering Ohio, cutting the corner of Pennsylvania, and then following the Potomac to D.C. If anyone has suggestions of places not to miss along this route, or wants to ride along with me for a day or two, let me know. Also, I'm packing a tent and sleeping bag, but if anyone has a guest room that they want occupied for a night, I'd be willing to endure that hardship!
Several good places to visit - Pittsburgh, Fort Frederick, Antietam Battlefield, Sheperdstown, Harpers Ferry, Great Falls. Widewater, just south of Great Falls, is one of the prettiest place on the entire C&O.
