Name an item on your bucket list.
Riding my bike on the Great Alleghany Passage and C&O Canal (Pittsburgh PA to Washington DC - 334.5 miles) in its entirety over a single weekend.  I have done each leg in a single day but, for various weather/trail condition reasons I have not been able to complete the double!  

Where would we find you on the weekend?
Spending time with my wife.  We both have full time jobs; she works for the Department of Homeland Security, so we pile everything into the weekends.   We have a small farm that requires continuous attention, 2 horses, 3 dogs, 3 cats. Oh yeah and 6 kids!  We fox hunt the horses, run errands, do chores around the farm, take day trips, get together with friends, do things with the kids when they are around and I ride my bike when I can fit it in.
