Today we bid farewell to Patrick our Pittsburgh Warm Showers host. He’s been a great host despite us being particularly disorganised at replying to his emails and turning up and hour and a half late! I’m sure that when it appears Mike’s daily summary for yesterday will say more about our stay with Patrick but I just wanted to highlight his wall. Patrick is incredibly generous and hosts lots of passing cyclist and back packers. He’s come up with an ingenious way to record his visitors. No conventional visitors book for Patrick, instead one wall of his living room had been painted with blackboard paint and visitors are encouraged to ‘go crazy’ and leave messages on the wall. Patrick photo’s the wall when it’s full then wipes it ready for the next guests. He’s been so hospitable lately that there wasn’t much room on the wall for us, but I’ve manages to squeeze in a few messages – although not enough to really convey our gratitude. Thanks Patrick, you’ve been great!
The writing’s on the wall
Great photos and glad Michael could be of service with the meatballs……happy cycling and hope you stay puncture free.
I am enjoying all your Blogs .your hosts have been fascinating.The bike museum amazing .I bet your dad Mathew liked the tricycle from Coventry. I knew a girl I worked with at the Oaks used to ride one of those. That was about 25 yrs ago . So people still ride 3 wheelers. . XX
Glad you’re enjoying them Gwen – sorry for the delay in recent posts, we’ve been in the wifi free wilds of the Ohiopyle state park.
