    I was in Williamsport the other day, checking out the C & O canal trailhead for a future bike packing trip. Do you know if it’s safe to park overnight in the lot with the Cushwa building?

    It wouldn’t be too difficult to carry a tablespoon of sourdough culture and enough flour to feed it. The discard can be eaten and is great for the bowels.
