Now I'm psyched for a trip down the Appalachians from A-town area into Michaux for some riding & fly fishing, I'm thinking late spring or early summer - definately will plan for when the water conditions are perfect.
I'm very happy you are enjoying the thread. Vested self interest for me... Talking about riding, is way more fun than working.

Hambone has a ride report that is loads of fun: http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=721623
Love that SL!!!

PA State Forests and parks are great places to be a young (or old) kid!! DAMHIK

I'm planning my route for the trip down to Michaux now. First stop is up and over to Bill's Bike Barn in Bloomsburg, then follow the Appalachians down, visiting some trout streams along the way, then cross the Cumberland Valley on Doubling Gap Road Rt. 233 which will take me right to Pine Grove Furnace. Wont be leaving for a couple of months yet, so I have time to figure out all the places I want to visit on the way down.

I'm really looking forward to this.

Sounds like your going to cross the Trans PA Trail somewhere near Bloomsburg, you could follow that route, and 4 days later end up in Pine Grove Furnace . I still need to proof ride from Emporium south (this spring) but others have ridden parts of it so I don't expect any problems.

I'll be wanting to visit historical buildings & bridges, and interesting and unusual stuff generally, as well as trout streams.

Mere minutes after posting that I got the word from my buddy he will change my tire for me tomorrow, so no, you won't see me on the trails. I'd have probably crashed with this front tire on anyway.
