    So I woke up Thursday morning and realized I had nothing to do and nice weather forecasted for a few days. I packed my tent and some basic things onto my bike a took a ride. I ended up at the Wood's Hole Steamship authority and took the ferry over to Martha's Vineyard.

    I was really low on space and weight so I didn't bring a real camera and didn't take a lot of pics so don't be all dicky about it.

    Soloing spontaneously with a cell phone is how Gwarn spends most Saturday nights.

    The ferries go to two different places on the island. Vineyard Haven, which was close to the only campground on the island and Oak Bluffs which is 6 miles away. Just my luck the ferry I got on went to Oak Bluffs so I had to ride a little longer to get to the campground.

    Here is everything I brought.

    Oh, what you can't see in the pic is my cooler. It is a soft cooler that I use for storage of clothing and bungee cord it to the rack on back. Once I get there I empty the clothes into the tent and use the cooler for food and beer. Unfortunately Tisbury is a "dry town" and I had to ride back to Oak Bluffs to get beer. I was pissed. I'd love to see statistics that show that dry towns are safer or better because they don't sell booze. As far as I can tell all it does is mean you have to drive further to get drunk. How is that safe?

    So anyway I took the 12 mile round trip to get beer. Stopped at the camp store for wood and ice and settled in for the night.
