    This is the first time I had attended and i was expecting 20-30 people.
    To my surprise I saw the parking lot the fullest I have ever seen it.

    Nice pics, at least you picked the better of the two weekend days to ride, my ride to the Southeastern Regional RTE in Marshall, VA on Sunday was a nasty one to say the least!

    Those are some good questions. Unfortunately my style is to wander around aimlessly, but I bet there are some folks that read this thread that can chime in. If not here over on the eastern Pa adv thread.
    Here is a basic summary:
    The PA Grand Canyon is part of the Tioga State Forest, beginning just south of Ansonia, PA, near Wellsboro, and continuing south to Waterville.

    I got out for a 150 miles ride today. Can't complain about a 50 degree January day in Pennsylvania.

    Sounds Good Much Thanks!

    Of all days, all I could do was to ride vicariously through Advrider.com, as I was stuck to the saddle of the seat behind my desk! :eek1 :lol3
    Many Good Wanderings .... :thumbup
