Last minute cell phone calls arrange a starting time and place for today's ride to ... I don't know, does it matter? Lunch time yesterday, I've no riding plans for today yet. E-gads, what to do?? Just then, the mobile rings, "BUDDYPAL!!" Wheels begin slowly spinning towards a rare late October Sunday near 70 degree adventure ride in eastern Pennsylvania. Three words couldn't be clearer, "Matto's at 9:00". It's code for great riding is in store. The end of daylight savings time brings with it an extra hour of sleep, for some. I'm up and getting ready to go. I'm pulling into Pottsville, PA, at least 30 minutes early. There's plenty to do to burn time around here. Pottsville, PA 1stiski rolls into the Matto's parking lot. There's a problem, Jim Thorpe Dave has a customer and may not be able to make it. A quick call and JT Dave is good for a half day. We agree to meet half way between here and there, which would be Tamaqua, PA. Off we go.
