    Thunderstorms went through Shippinsburg around 3:30 for 20 minutes or so. Should help with the dust.

    But I can't make it, Emergency at work just came up, going to be on and off the phone all evening. :cry

    But I got all Summer to ride with you guys, Sorry.

    Something kicked my ass too, TP. My eyes were so red, they looked like I was smoking something.

    Hey Jax really nice shots of your ride today!
    Just wondering if you noticed this problem.

    Link error message
    <HR style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #575757; COLOR: #575757" SIZE=1><!-- / icon and title --><!-- message -->Hey Jax
    FYI the map of south Michaux on page one goes to an error page, so I went to the source and this link seems to be a good one now.

    Thanks

    Thank you Chris! I have fixed the link. It seems that every time the State changes webmasters the links change too..... :ddog.
    I have saved copies on my computer so as to avoid having to research where they hid them. :D

    Oh and I saw the crew grading and placing new gravel on Swift Run Road. I got to ride on the virgin gravel... Squirrelly goodness. :D

    Took a great ride through Michaux, Tuscarora, and Buchanan on Saturday.

    It was about 150 miles total and mostly dirt except travel across the valley.

    Found a few vistas

    and found many different non-tarmac riding surfaces. Only bad part of the ride was seeing the Hemlocks devastated by the blight in hemlock natural area. :cry

    It was a great day overall and I wasn't even that sore today! :clap

    Kind of hard to tell from this map, but it look like you went past my summer home around P

    Saw a first for me yesterday despite living at the edge of Michaux for 15 years. On Ridge Road just south of Shippensburg Road the state forest ranger had a pickup truck pulled over. The ranger had his gumball lights on and was issuing a ticket. I wonder what that was about?

    The state keeps pleading poverty, but they sure have a lot of money to spend on fresh gravel. I think they are laying it down thicker and looser this year in Michaux than ever before.

    Maybe the ticket money pays for gravel. :hmmmmm
