June 10...I made it to Cleveland. My checked bag did not. For 24 hours. My friend Joan and I had to make a trip back to the Amtrak Cleveland, barely caught the baggage person, and did retrieved my bag. Then, next day back to Cleveland and on to Buffalo. Destination: Lockport for the night.
Tough navigating out of Buffalo Amtrak to get on the Erie Canal Trail, henceforth the ECT. Got my daily allotment of bonus miles. Thankfully my phone navigator still worked which sort of helped.
Arrived in Lockport, a mere 35 miles from Buffalo, the long, hard way. The local police said I could camp at the Lockport Marina on the ECT. A shelter building for tent and stuff was welcome, as heavy rain and wind was on the nighttime menu. The marina person let me use the shower and charge up my electronics. The ice cream stand across the street came in quite handy.
