Way to go, nuttygrandma! You are (in your fashion) an inspiration to young and old. I especially liked reading about your sister and her hesitance to ride (formerly) and her excitement that you're giving her a bike. Is she receiving the bike you're taking to Williamsburg? That's a really nice town to bicycle in - if you stay away from the main arteries. All around the colonial part is flat and very bike/pedestrian friendly. You and she might enjoy it together?

I have ridden the Dismal Swamp Trail, and it's not completely as it sounds, but there are quite a few shaded parts that might do well as settings for a southern gothic novel. The trail is well traveled.

Thanks for posting!
