    Hey guys
    I'm looking at the map and its alot less traffic for me to meet up at the kickstand ice cream instead of Bridgeville. I left a mess. with Disconnected. I hope he got it. I'll hit Ohiopile about 11:30. Can I get a cell # from one of you guys in case there's a problem finding you?

    I second PA Slammer's motion to rename this to the "What a Freakin' Blast Campout". Want to go back tomorrow!!!! Too many routes, too little time. Excited about resurrecting this event the way it was meant to be.

    Don't know about the "Blue Loop". You may be thinking of the "Blue Belt" if you are referring to a paved route.

    That SUCKS ... hopefully it will be short lived and you'll be out playing soon.

    Since I've gotten home I've been looking at a few "smaller bikes" mainly the DR after watching/seeing Gregs.

    I"ve been lookin at dual sport bikes myself. I been lookin at KTM 690. When you look at weight and seat height. Its hard to beat. Gregs DR is plenty impressive. I"ve had the off road KTM for 10 yrs. It's not comfy at all for all day riding. Comes down to how much time you spend off road-trail ride-adventure ride.
    (At my age its all an adventure) But I love my 800
