Three, maybe four of us plan to leave the southern end August 9th for a nine day tour. Man that felt good, let me say that again, a nine day tour. The route includes a lot of what we ran last year, I just put a little more effort into cutting down on the tarmac. I also cut out the hero sections in an attempt to make this big bike friendly, we will see how that goes. Luke MD looks to be the easiest to nav by dirt or grav. Hancock is kinda sorta ok. Rob, it looks like you crossed the border at Harpers Ferry a couple of months ago on your trip to Seneca. It appears to be blacktop west untill you get into basically Mineral county, and that was my experience last year. We are going to leave here with all intentions of making the coast somewhere in Jersey. I certainly do not think we will have time to run any of the TNJT, but I would like to know the route for reference(we will be back if this works out half as good as as expected). I will send a PM with the formal request. One nice campsite on the coast would be great. Lobster, crab, and vino within walking distance would be esquisite. Can anybody help me out on that? Trans America Trail East?
