Wish I saw this earlier I used to commute from SoMD to OIL CITY every weekend, discovered some really nice backroads up through Altoona to Dubois.

Surprised you missed the space capsule at the DQ just South of Franklin.

A little history: that area used to have the most percapita millionaires in the world. The theater you captured in your pictures hosted world premiers for movies and new talent that are almost all done in Hollywood now.

There used to be street cars, and upon investigation you can find evidence of them, the cobblestones, and in Titusville(home of the Heisman) the yellow brick roads.

They used to transport pull from places like pothole in huge wooden vats on writhe railcar poor barge, and in the past there was a huge oil spill up river of Oil City, when the spill reached town it caught fire and burnt down the majority of the lower city. They is also an underground"mall" under downtown, where people could go from business to business and not have to cross the dirt streets or deal with the mud or horse traffic.

It's pRetty much a craphole now as both Quaker State and PennZoil abandoned them.

I wish you had as well....SPACE CAPSULE! Love it !
I missed Franklin altogether, last time I rode west on 322 to 257 north through Seneca.

It's that time of the year, I'm going back. This will be the WPBMA's fifth annual competition and I don't want to miss it. Been working on a ride plan since this years event has been moved (again) into September, last year was in mid December. Not sure if I should do a all new RR or just keep tacking on things here.

Last year's contest was moved into December, due to time constraints and snow worry I caged it .
Practically a redo! Two years since the first Have Beard, Will Travel Ride Report, the 2012 WPBMA's annual contest was being held in September.

Time off from work, Done!

Gather some camping stuff, Done!
Plan a route, Done!
Make reservations in town, Done!
Remember to tell wife any of these plans....
Whoopsie! Uh, um, ah, I'm sorry honey... really Apology-cake bought and left in 'frig, DONE!

Pack bike and roll out of town....


Done!

Like the last time I made this motorcycle trip the MD ToR tag was out west. I can't resist. Once again the best route is neither straight or the swiftest .

Small break at Sideling Hill


Just a quick leg stretch, then forward.

After that tag grab I decided to go look for the new Tag, had two in mind.

The first candidate:


After wasting most of the day riding around it was time to find a place to rest.


Empty Campground.

Hello Bumble Bee, the week-end before was their last open week for the season. The keepers took pity on me, mostly because they hadn't taken the "Come in We're Open" sign down, I was alone and the sun was going down . Glad I didn't call ahead . They were so nice as I was setting up my tent they brought wood over to me so I wouldn't have to carry it down to the site.



Mood lighting



Beverage, appetizers and soup's on .

Then it rained, really really rained.

Good Day Sunshine!

I need to laugh, and when the sun is out
I've got something I can laugh about,


Coffee is on

The rain was gone, the air crisp and all was quiet and the sunlight was threading it's rays through the trees. All was beautiful and eerie at the same time.

She feels good, she knows she's looking fine.
I'm so proud to know that she is mine.


Good day sunshine,
Good day sunshine,
Good day sunshine.





Italics, not my words. Thank you Lennon/McCartney

So I get myself moving. For me that can be difficult because on beautiful mornings nothing is the thing to do.

Then I quickly stop.



I don't fish. Places called Hookers are endlessly funny to me .

Time for breakfast.


This place has been the MD ToR once before and we do allow repeats but not this time.



What you're looking at here is a Cheese Steak Omelet That's right! Say it out loud, Cheese Steak Omelet .

Time for Tag.
The clue.


The drop.


And then on to OC.

Yes, I am When hot liquids are in it the TARDIS fades from the street scene side and appears in the space scene on the other side.
When it was new and shiny



Baltimore has one of these,


outside of the Pennsylvania Train Station, on the corner of N. Charles St. and E. Lanvale St.
