John & Shirley Gault from Marshall, MO on 6/25/2005 9:06:41 AM:
We just finished a 4 day round trip from Hartsburg to St. Charles. We left our car in the care of the owners of the local bike shop. These are very accomidating folks, even moving their vehicles to protect ours when a large group came though. We did not worry about our car.
Upon our return we enjoyed the very excellent smothies they serve at the bike shop.
This trip with stops in McKittrick (we recommed Penrond's View guesthouse) and return is a good one. We are in our 60's and the temperature was 95 but we left at first light and had a very enjoyable trip.
