YA, got out for a days ride figured I would head up that way.
It's a nice place with miles of nice roads in the area, dirt or paved.

It should be a fun event. :thumbsup:

A strong tentative yes--if I have a bike.  I have a tent so no need for lodging and shouldn't screw up any logistics if I have to bail.

I can offer guidance on the area roads if there's any interest.

Would enjoy to stop in and meet some of you, but work obligations would prevent me from doing more than that.

In the Bloomsburg area, there are approximately 20 covered bridges that I've put into a gpx file.  I was supposed to be going out there next week with the wife and check them out, but the new PT job and her having the work visit rescheduled killed that.  We were out that way last fall and loved the area.  Great Bloomsburg brew pub located at Inn at Turkey Hill with excellent food too.

Count me in.

Looks like a decent day tomorrow so I'm taking the day off to go for a ride. Won't really have the time or daylight to do South East Ohio, but I do plan to do some of the Trans-Ohio-Trail North East of Columbus.

Some shots from my ride on Friday:

And a little bit of video. The sign just after the right hand turn reads "Travel at own risk", which loosely translates to  :banana:

It was a great opportunity for a late season ride. Before long I'll be watching the snow fly and counting down the days to this spring meet.

Nah. We'd get lost for sure.

I am getting a much better comfort level again though. If you recall the spring meet last year, after my broken ankle, any off-road section and I was lagging a fair bit behind you. It was really a much bigger mental block than I was expecting after the injury, but at least the apprehension is fading.

I was talking to my son Chris earlier today and mentioned this meet since it's about an hour from where he lives. He said he thought he'd prefer a dual sport ride vs paved twisties. I'm OK with that. While I would love to ride the SDGT to the meet, riding with my son is a bigger win. Is anyone else thinking about riding a brazillion of miles of dirt roads up that way? Given that Sunday is Mothers Day, both he and I would probably bail early Sunday AM to dash home and avoid the wrath of SWMBO.

BTW, Chris is about to become a Daddy. His wife is due Jan 21. It's a girl. :banana:

Take me off the attendee list. We are going to FL next month so that will eat up some vacation time. Hope to catch up with you guy's later in the summer or fall.

That would be good.  Hey, maybe if you mess up on the job a little bit - nothing too serious - they'll send you back to VA for more training.

Smoker, we can free up our room. We have a thing Friday night, probably gonna run late. Liz has a gig on Sunday, so at best we can come up Saturday for the day ride and overnight, then head out at o-dark thirty Sunday. Mother in law got us tickets for a thing for Christmas that happens to be that Friday night.

There's an 85% chance we'll be up for Saturday. There's a good chance we'll come up late Friday and stay in Danville overnight.

That's my loose plan, but in any case, free up our sleep space for anyone who needs it.

At the very least, *I'LL* be there, for at least the day time Saturday and dinner/evening stuff. Liz may be a question. Her Sunday gigs are... problematic... for our weekend stuff for much of the year. (She sings in a professional choir for the rich folks in the whole DuPont circle).

Dang!  The store approved my three day weekend off for this.  Guess I gotta have the van ready for real truck camping.  I haz a new RV floor plan layout to completely buy, finish and install along with the rooftop racks, steel carrier and solar array too.

Sweet.

FWIW, Mrs. Smoker will be driving up in my truck, which will have a rooftop tent that we are willing to sleep in, and I can bring another small 2 person ground tent with a cot for additional space if we need it.
The rooms with bunks also have double beds, so those rooms can actually sleep 3-4 regular sized humans (not Skee sized). And there's 4 full sized couches if some of you don't mind that.

And if it gets chilly, I'll have a Honda 2000 near my rig that you can run a cord to if you wanna bring a small heating device of some sort.  Or anything else you wanna plug in for that matter.  I could bring the 2nd one if needed at no real inconvenience to me.  The things run for 12 hours on a gallon of gas. 

edit:  I have a skee sized tent if needed.

I'm good for sleeping quarters.  Three tents of various sizes and the van available for comfortable accommodations.  I could pack a spare tent also if needed.

Most unfortunately, I am out.  Cannot attend.

Blame it on Berks Jazz Fest.  We go every year, probably since it began.  It's in April this year, which forced us to move the trip I had planned for mid-April.  I'd been hoping to work around it somehow; I dn't know how.  You know what fell out.

I'll miss this one.

Add me to the list of those jumping ship, unfortunately.

My head and my heart want to make the trip...but my body isn't cooperating. #damnshoulder among other things. And I've also committed to a three-week dog-sitting gig while a co-worker visits her family in China. So Coco and I will be at home while CB enjoys your hospitality.

I'll send him with something delicious to share. Maybe not cookies though...he can't seem to get anywhere without them turning into crumbs!  :lol: :facepalm:

I'll be holding down a piece of the lawn and keeping the non-alcoholic beverages cold all day.  No riding for me, just relaxing and seeing new and old friends.  Need tent space or are there beds now available?

Add me to the list of those jumping ship, unfortunately.

My head and my heart want to make the trip...but my body isn't cooperating. #damnshoulder among other things. And I've also committed to a three-week dog-sitting gig while a co-worker visits her family in China. So Coco and I will be at home while CB enjoys your hospitality.

I'll send him with something delicious to share. Maybe not cookies though...he can't seem to get anywhere without them turning into crumbs!  :lol: :facepalm:

Or we could incorporate Stormstown into our Saturday loop.......

Hell yeah! Make our house a dessert stop!!! I'll dish up homemade pies, a la mode with Creamery ice cream!

I would LOVE to see all of you!

Well, most of you.

OK, like...four of you.  :rolf:

But seriously, do that! Come see Coco and me!!!
I used to make a bigger impression.

I guess you'll be getting your fuzzybutt fix and won't need to meet Hemi then.

With the motorcycles currently in my garage, my knees couldn't handle the ride.
I'll be holding down a piece of the lawn and keeping the non-alcoholic beverages cold all day.  No riding for me, just relaxing and seeing new and old friends.  Need tent space or are there beds now available?

Looking like we'll have plenty of room.

Not committing yet, but definitely on my "I need to do this" list. 

How much of the riding will be dirt and how much pavement?

How much dirt/pavement do you want?
You can do as much or as little of each as you want.

Well this is one new to me, so far I've only ridden about 20 miles on her. Street Bias tires so I will be doing almost all pavement. or very nice forest roads.
