Taken on the Cape May-Lewes Ferry on the road home from Canada several summers ago, by far one of the coolest parts of our trip. The ferry ride was a little more than an hour long and when we unloaded, we were less than 5 minutes from Cape Henlopen State Park where we stayed the night, camping and sleeping on the sand. The ranger was a super nice guy who drove a Corvette and also rode. After his shift, he came and found us and shot the breeze for a couple hours. He had lost a daughter to addiction and come out of retirement for this job just to keep himself occupied and his mind off his loss. We drank beer until very late into the night at which point he said his goodbyes and we were lulled to sleep by the sound of the nearby waves. 


  1. Damn, that makes me want to go camping again!!!

  2. Cool!! The wife and I rode up to Ludington MI. several years ago and took the SS Badger across like Michigan to Manitowak WI. Super cool trip for sure.

  3. Nice! Great story-very inspiring and I agree with Kustom Jeff!

  4. Jeff-I think a weekend trip is coming in January or February, probably going to hit some camping closer to home with emphasis on good roads between, plus a little sight-seeing. I'll keep you in the loop.

    Wes-there is a ferry on the gulf coast that I have been wanting to take for years but haven't been able to make happen, which is crazy because I have been close so many times. One day...

    Chris-I bet winter is even tougher for you up north...cabin fever!
