Thankfully yesterday’s heat wave has eased up a little and we had a pretty easy 62km ride to Remagen, including the ferry at Erpel. The Campingplatz at Remagen was a little hard to get into because we kept coming at it from the wrong direction, but eventually we got in and it’s quite nice (for a German campground).
Brent is trying desperately to make his shorts last to the end of this trip. The left butt cheek has disintegrated out of them, so he’s put a duct tape patch on it. This morning, he’s got a matching patch on the right… preventative, he says.
This section of the Rhein isn’t the most stunning. A lot of the terrain today was completely flat and there were relatively few Schlosses (castles). In the next day or two we’re going to start getting into crazy Schloss and canyon terrain. We’re looking forward to that. We had to pay attention to where the ferry was to cross over to Remagen, so we were remembering that we had to pass through Unkel then Erpel, shortened to “Unkel Erpel”. We had many moments of entertainment with that. Unkel Erpel. Unkel was a really nice little town, and Erpel was too! Yay for Unkel Erpel!
Turns out I didn't really need a comprehensive list of Waschsalons. Almost every Campingplatz we've stayed in has had a washer and dryer. We used a Waschsalon in Wurzburg, and we probably will again in Kelsterbach, but other than that, we haven't needed them at all!
