    What type of riding are you guys doing? I'd be interested in this trip. I ride an F800GS. Are you riding gravel and forest roads? I'm not into all day of bashing rocks on quad trails. Are you talking the weekend of the 28 and 29th?

    Hi there! We where thinking of leaving Friday morning and coming back Sunday. Mostly asphalt and dirt roads. Nothing to bad. I have ridden everything on a big GS two up. We are an easy group to get along with. Pretty sure Jim will be on his F800 since he just got it. :D There will be no single track, but miles of dirt roads and some mild two track. :)

    More than likely we will need to eat breakfast and dinner @ camp. There is a campground with tables. I will bring my Jet Boil for coffee etc. I'll probably pick up some peperoni rolls or some sort OF noodles for dinner. Lunch we can find on the road.

    Jim and I live in Scott Township. I am pretty close to the Bridgeville exit. We could meet there. There is a Get Go with tables and coffe. I'd like to meet the others in Mount Pleasant. There is a Exxon on route 31 with fuel, coffee and tables too so it's a great rendezvous point.

    Not sure what route disconnected is thinking of taking. I may have to meet people at Ohiopyle State Park is you're going by there. Preferably want to take the back way to Laurel Fork if possible. Good mixture of asphalt and gravel roads.

    Still hoping to make the ride but can't commit 100%. I will know more next week as time gets closer ... sorry to be hanging on fence but elderly grandmother/health will decide.
