John's Pack 2018 FT Day 4.  We gained two riders today - Nancy and Diana.  The goal today was to board the 1:40 ferry from Lewis DE to Cape May NJ.  We were careful to take regular bio-breaks to make sure everyone stayed refreshed. Our anticipated lunch stop was Stripper Bites in Lewis, but one of the other large six-packs beat us there.  Nancy kindly suggested another place in Lewis.  Irish Eyes fulfilled out needs for seafood and other victuals with really good service.  Guess where we are going next year?  We got to the ferry in the nick of time and the ferry staff let us board part of the way through the vehicle loading process.  That was different than in the past.  The ferry ride is always the anticipated event this day.  John was the last cycle rider off the ferry, but he was the first rider into the hotel.  The other four packmates took the official route to the hotel.  John had another task.  He always mails postcards from the FT destination, so he took the direct route to the Cape May Post Office and then to the Grand Hotel.  Again, another day with no major problems.
