Genealogy camping bicycling- Trip Two 2009

Started off from Monroe, NC, Fri noon; first camp Sutten Lake, WV, off 219. Next day at Ligonier Scottish Games, PA. You can read or surf the Internet about it, or hear it live from this historian re-enacting a WWI soldier of Black Watch Regiment. The Glengerry (cap) was exchanged for a steel helmet during war. Argyle socks were replaced by canvas wrap, ~1916, two years after the war started. "RH" insignia on epulets stood for Royal Highlanders. See one of our own ancestors who changed his surname from Parkinson to Russell so that he could serve with a kilt-clad, Tyneside Regiment during WW I.
