To the Editor:
On the evening of June 6, while our Boy Scout troop camped at the Paw Paw Tunnel (Route 51, Mile 156.2 of the C&O Canal) someone stole our bike rack.
We did not report our loss immediately due to the fact that we admit to fault for not securing it properly and that none of us had proper signal on our cell phones to make a call. Even so, be aware that there is a thief in the area.
As much as our troop enjoyed the opportunity to bike the C&O Canal, the theft did make our trip more cumbersome.
A lesson learned, but the intent of this letter is to warn other visitors.
