Noting that that the weekend of the 20th is dedicated to Laurel Fork WV...target later in April or early May. For some it could be a day ride, for others an overnighter. I would likely just forest camp but if others wanted to hit a developed commercial campground (sites, cabins, showers, etc) or motel it, I can be swayed.

Go up one Sat morning, overnight, return Sunday? Route up/back would be RT15...could have a meet up in Leesburg as a point of departure for the NOVA folks, and pick a spot up north a bit like Fredrick for any folks angling up from MD/DC.
Ok, based on some PM's, scheduling of days off and all the rest...here is the plan and the specific thread for it: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showt...3#post21208283

I will see what I can do about pulling it up. I am not too tech savy with the GPS but I got the idea by using google maps. Essentially, I took Switzer Lake Rd to FR 85. It's off of Rt 33 in GWNF.

and the video from the ride:

Anyone up for a ride this Sunday morning? Looking for mostly paved, a few gravel roads are ok but no dual sporting on the VFR, no super long distances just a couple of hours around, out at 9, back by noon kind of thing.

If you're getting those outstanding results from MC campouts, why change what's working?

Dirt or street? I don't know the roads up that way, so it sounds like an opportunity to learn some new routes!
