PA trip – day 3
Destination – state college pa.
Life is all about making decisions… Today was one of those days.
We left Towanda and headed west on rt6 which is a nice country road. I gotta say… It’s beautiful up here. Every little town we pass through seems like it’d be a nice place to retire. Mick is from Troy PA which we passed through. I think I saw the wild dogs that used to chase him.
We continued west towards cherry springs state park which is where we planned to camp. We saw some old little bikes for sale on the side of the road. Stopped and met Jerry. He was cool and recommended a good lunch spot. We went. I didn’t think it was good. Oh well. Nate liked it, but he also likes bread and butter pickles so… Ya know…
We checked out the PA Grand Canyon which was cooler and bigger than I thought it’d be. Met some nice guys on DRZ 400’s. Shit, Ben, you should’ve just bought one of them! They’re cheap and will do 85mph. Looks like a better size for trails than the bulky honda 650 anyway IMO.
So, this is around the time we realized its going to rain all night. Shit.
We decided camping in the rain, and then riding all morning the next day in rain would blow. So, we decided to ride 2 more hours south to state college which is where I went to school at PSU, and get a $45 motel. This way we could actually go out at night and booze it up and not have to sit in our tents miserable.
It turned out to be a great decision. The roads from cherry springs park to lockhaven were insane amazing. Best roads of the trip so far. See map below; 44 to 144 to 664. Amazing. Over a few mountains, tons of twisters. So good!
We boozed it up pretty hard last night at bars I used to go to 10 years ago ha. It was fun. It rained hard all night and looks like it’s raining all day, so we made the right decision coming here. PSU is great for hanging out, bars and people-watching. Once the rain stops we’ll head on out and go camping again.

I went on a short trip this past weekend to Reading, where I grew up, for a friends Bachelor Party & to paint a couple signs for his wedding. I took my old Yamaha XS650 & my new Fuji X100. Avoided 76 & broke down once. These are the some of the photos… All Packed […]
I hiked down into PA Grand Canyon in college. Like a dumbass, the sun set and had to hike back up in total darkness which was freaky. Especially when you hear twigs snapping.
Nate, ask Ed to show you his old fraternity house….
Nice! Looks like you had a good day out there. All those roads around Lock Haven are amazing. I’ve ridding most of those you rode yesterday. 120 west of that town is another one I need to get back out and ride again someday. So good!
Adam I’ve asked him over and over and he swears frats are BS but I’m not believing him. I know he pledged.
