    Awesome! I think Troegs and Victory are helping out for the MOA National so figured you might be able to get in on that.:evil
    As long as it's good beer nothing else matters.:freaky

    hey thanks, guys.

    our volunteers are out scouting routes, and man is there ever a great number of adventure rides across the state of PA.

    Gypsy Tour riders are especially in for a treat.... and registration is now open!

    So you wanna be a Giant?

    Then you need to earn points. And I'm giving you, YES, YOU!, the opportunity to earn points right now!

    For those who do not know, I am the official scorekeeper of the GS Giant. As such, I have the ability to dole out BS points. What are BS points, you ask? Just what you think they are! [​IMG] So, here is the first official chance to start racking them up.

    Get a head start on earning points by signing up or logging in to Face Book and become a friend of the GS Giant. Post your name and where you're from on Facebook to automatically earn 2 points. Why is FaceBook important? Because it's the largest social media network on the planet (unverified) and we will use this to communicate shout-out challenges throughout the course of the event.

    Yeah...now you're thinking...it's just 2 points. But 2 points could mean the difference between winning a motorcycle and gear, or not. So, go there now and tell us why you should be the next GS Giant!

    Downriver from Bloomsburg on the Susquehanna, where it's a mile wide, here come some more points.

    There were deeper and muckier ponds, but not nearly so picturesque.

    And then stop in Catawissa for a bit of culture:
