    Beautiful! Our grandsons' adoptive parents (long story) live in Hollister, CA, just inland from Monterey Bay and they have been taking them on trips up that way.

    Well, at the time I worked at a place that dealt with a lot of highly susceptible/immunocompromised people... some could not even get the flu shot for risk of death. So I limited my activities to protect them. On top of that, I have a kiddo at home who I was worried about as well (she has CP and we were not sure about risk factors at the time).

    Just N of Indy...
    I've done 3 portions of it but never the whole thing. Couple of buddies are wanting to do the whole thing over a 4 day period this October and want me to join them.

    Here’s a great write up of the Knobstone, and a chart showing actually how much elevation change there is. Not big changes, but changes all day long.
    A buddy and I did 44 miles south to north in 2016.
    Want to get back out there.
