You can consider a ride up to the DAMN Michaux basecamp the night before and launch from there, maybe an hour for most folks. The official route passes within a few miles of my place.

What are you using as starting point?
thanks - may take you up on that

current plan is start at the gas station they show as the end of the route.

North to south? Gonna slab up US15? Actually, 15 north is a pretty decent ride. About 4 hours up to the NY border.

aka the cool kids trip. This will be a weekend trip. Since the other guys are doing south to north, I propose we go north to south. I think this is a three day trip +/- to do the north 1/2.

I'll be riding my FZ-09 Adventure. I lean towards cheap ass hotels but will camp if that is what the majority want to do.

Primary date is weekend of May 4/5/6. The others are rain dates

5/6: Trip
6/3: Rain Date 1
7/22: Rain Date 2

IN
  1. Rut Row
  2. Junior
  3. Wingfixer
  4. Glenduro
I need to put my vacation in. are we set in stone on this? IT works for me. I say rain or shine! I don`t know what rain dates are?

So Lawrence PA is 238 miles from my house in Mt Airy going up rt15, windy road vs straight shot so not so bad. We could perhaps meet in Gettysburg :thumbup:

Diesel mechanics are covered in too much oil to worry about rain anyway! :lol2:
