For all you long-time bikekatytrail followers: I contacted Doug Rendelman asking for a suggestion of a place to park our car in/near Bluffton (nothing else was working logistically). He graciously allowed us to park it at his place. If you remember, in Dec '14, some guy came careening around Hwy 94 and plowed into Doug's B&B. Despite trying several legal avenues, Doug has been unable to recoup damages from either the driver's insurance company or his own. He is continuing to fight on, but in the meantime he is converting an adjacent building into a bigger and better B&B -- catering specifically to cyclists (i.e. no potpourri!). He hopes to open in the spring of '17 and the progress looks good. I asked if I could give you all an update, and he said it was OK.

Can't wait. Had a great time at his place!
He was the only one on my whole trip to catch my friend on my hip.
