    Still not likely. Although, if the wife gets the new job she is applying for, and it starts before July, then things will be different.

    Does one have to be active duty, or do veterans count?

    Does anyone have either the coordinates or the road name for the first water crossing on Sherman's Creek in Perry County? A landowner had blocked access to a private road. This is not the ford next to the Turkey Tail (Enslow's) covered bridge on Adams Grove Road.

    Thanks.

    Oops, I kind of keyed in on the "first water crossing" part and neglected the other details. :norton

    Thanks! I was looking for it yesterday on the way back to Carlisle after tagging the Pa-TOR. I had this strong need to get wet.

    No wonder I was unable to find it. It's not Sherman's Creek, but Shultz Creek, a tributary.

    Can we get another ride together soon? I'm just healing up from a broken wrist and I'm getting back into the swing of things. This was a great ride and not so difficult that I'd be nervous about hurting myself.

    The 2011 ride was amazing. The 2012 I missed but the video shows it was a great day.

    As far as terrain, any chance Frank the 2013 ride can still have an off road slant? I sold the Ducati and bought the XChallenge JUST so I could make your next event! :D

    So like the title of this post states. We ARE planning yet another Spring Ride this year, and it will take place on Saturday, April 13th. It is however still a work in progress, so at this point I can't give you any more firm information than that. I will however, soon start a new thread for the ride, and I will let you all know here, when it is posted. Thanks for your continued support.
