Still time to sign up and show up y'all stragglers and fence-sitters.

During our time together I will expect some (or all!) of you to make various excursions and to facilitate that (in lieu of a strictly scheduled and regimented plan) I've mapped out a couple of country tours. These attachments are turn-by-turn PDFs and I'll see what I can do about making them google-map downloadable-to-your-phone links as well, for navigational ease.

Run One is a 94 mile, 2-hour+ riverside tour that takes us to and through some covered bridges up north and The Winery at Hunters Valley (they will be expecting our members throughout the weekend) before guiding us to the show field. All in all an excellent morning/early afternoon lunch ride.

Run Two is a 94-mile mountain road and brew pub option with a stop in Kings Gap park (nice overlook there) and a stop at Appalachian Brewing Co. in Gettysburg before bringing you back to Carlisle.

Both of these routes were originally conceived by Cory and Jeni Drake, by the way. I just dusted them off and did some minor re-routing to account for changes in the landscape. Obviously either route is amenable to alteration or reversal.


Ha! I actually had not seen that.

Yes, Gordon, technically Baltimore is located somewhere "around the world."

Yes, I wheedled my way into the display. It's got to be in place by Thursday at 5 PM so I'm going to be seeking a wingman (or woman) to escort me to the show field and then ferry me back to the hotel some time on Thursday. (Probably, weather-depending).

You're welcome to ride with me, Ed.  I'll be arriving Wednesday A WEEK FROM TODAY!!!!  WOOHOO!!!

Looks like I'm going to leave the delivery to Team Beck so I can be low stress all week.  Been an "interesting" period at work and I need a break, even if it means I live a  week or two more without the car.

Well, there went my only reason for going to Carlisle, Lane. Canceling my plans now.

Looks like we all should put Danny out front reading the map/GPS.  

We have two guys on our bike trips, Andy and Robb, who are NEVER allowed to read a map or lead a ride.  Both have gone miles out of their way after going the wrong way and getting lost.  We've seen both of them get lost in the airports (multiple times) just getting to our destinations.

Don't be like Andy and Robb - Follow @DannyP

For anyone who has been on the fence, the hotel will still honor the contracted room rate  !   Carlisle weather looks partly sunny partly cloudy and a couple of showers possible now and then. We've seen better and much worse.  Be safe enjoy the trip out to the hotel . Connie and I should be at the hotel by 2PM  One minor change.. instead of the the free breakfast buffet the hotel will provide free breakfast coupons that will cover breakfast at the Bistro.    ....Please be sure to bring a Raffle item or two !

Info is spotty but this is as of this morning,  the states that have to pipeline running through it seem to have the supply issues. I can't find any shortage info for PA  and other surrounding states. I just filled both vehicles here in WV . From here,  I figure I can run to Carlisle PA  fill up, then on Sunday continue into NJ to visit the grandkids and back into central PA before I will need gas for the rest of the trip back into WV .  I'll have a new empty 5 gallon can just in case I may have to use it. A company that operates a major U.S. energy pipeline says it was forced to temporarily halt all pipeline operations following a cybersecurity attack.
