I’ll drive up in my truck with the bike. Can you recommend a parking area to meet at?
Hey, what route are you driving out? Are you coming right thru Emmitsburg? We could meet there as well. (I know a few legal trails nearby on way to Southern Michaux)

Else Im fine with the Sheetz in Rowserville
PM for John. Then we can firm up time/place.

We had a nice ride today. (More people need to skip work and come out during the week)

First let me say that Sonny/AAI is a crazy bastard who actually rode his bike up to Emmitsburg. He put down ONE HUNDRED miles of pavement before John and I were unloading our bikes.

Did a few of the easier trails around the property and then hit some twisty backroads on our way up to Michaux. Bruce had to call out and we were on our own for a Michaux Tour Guide. I took a few wrong turns but we found our way around.

John on the famous telephone pole bridge. Lots of dabs but everyone made it across on two wheels.

At the end of the day, we were back at the Emmitsburg property. John and I decided to end our day with this mini hillclimb.

John got a little offline.

John rode the day on crappy worn TKC80s. He was spinning his back wheel but he made it
