Hi jbcaddy,
Thanks for the route tips and hospitality! Here's a pic my friend Blaise took from his old BMW of one of the tunnels on Rt 70 ... we got a bit lost and rode a long way up 162 before we figgured out that if we kept going we'd wind up back at Quincy, which would have been back to square one ... ha. Super nice road up from the big reservoir ...
Hope to see you next year when we come back through that way,
