First overnight on the Ravn. Highway 20 to Burnt Woods. New pavement with wide shoulder most of the way. Road to Harlan is also paved, then 2 miles of gravel to nice campground.

Ravn

Didn't have the strength to pedal up the steep parts. Lower gears are great but won't make up for weak engine. 

Ravn handles great on downhill gravel. Very stable. It was hot and motivation was low so I turned around at Harris Bridge.

Soma Saga

Out Bellfountain after road cleanup and back Fern. The Saga feel heavy and slow compared to the RAVN and Grando, but I was able to haul a very heavy load back from the garden with ease.
