    Our weather reports are pretty spot on. Looking great. First time in years we will be kind of rain free.

    Here is the Smokin Hole Easier Way Around GPX file. You will have to download it and then insert it into your setup. I have it ready to go on REVER for those who have joined me on that platform.

    Do you have the hard route that you, Marco and a few of us are doing?

    Would it be reasonable to do the "easy" ride on Friday afternoon if one was inclined to do the "hard" ride on Saturday?

    (Somewhat answering my own question...the route is just shy of 160 miles and Basecamp is telling me 6-6.5 Hrs)

    Sorry this is hard to see....but it appears that the easy route goes contrary to a section of one-way road in Hickory Run State Park?
    [​IMG]

    I took your route and converted to a track and was making a new route on *my* maps and just couldn't get that section to route properly. I switched from OSM topo to regular OSM and then I see the arrows showing the one-way road... Looks like you're supposed to go clockwise just north of Saylorsville down to the beach/lake.

    Edit...yes, it would appear you have the route going backwards through there according to the official park map:

    Update. We will not have a dump station this year for RV’s. There will be fresh water available to fill up.
