    Hello Inmates,

    My son and I are going to ride the MABDR North-South starting Saturday 9-19-20. We're trailering our WR's to Lawrenceville for the start - anyone have an open spot where we can park the rig for 4-5 days? Or, suggestions for paid parking?

    Thanks,
    Walt

    If nothing else pops up, I have a place in Michaux SF. About 3 hr slab from Lawernceville.

    There is a park and ride area in blossburg about 20 min from lawrenceville that would be ok to leave vehicle there for multiple days I know of

    I'm from the Mansfield area (about 15 min from lawrenceville) I know of a couple other spots also. But the blossburg park and ride is right off RT 15 and could leave vehicle there for weeks and it would be fine

    I'm a little nervous leaving the rig at a park and ride, especially that close to Rt 15. Do you guys think it's secure?

    I was thinking about calling the Bucktail Camping Resort in Mansfield. Seems like a good family campground that might sell me some parking space.

    I work pretty close to there, IV never heard of anyone having problems there I know a couple people that meet for work and leave vehicles there everyday.

    OK, sounds good then. I looked on Google Maps but did not see anything resembling a park and ride. Any landmarks close by? Is it near the intersection with Rt 6?
