Another Year, Another Great Duncannon Camp out
After getting multiple trips rained out this year we were all pumped for this past weekends annual Duncannon camp out. We lucked out and had great weather despite heavy rains all week and scattered thunderstorms in the weekend forecast. Some memorable highlights are:
- Taking 76/202/30/322 and seeing the washed out bridges along 322 after the 8-11″ of rain areas got on Friday
- We got escorted around the road closures by a dude driving a VW Eurovan with ‘CATTITUDE’ written across the back.
- Campsite is still $5 a night.
- Some of the residents were happy to see us again and shared some devils lettuce with us
- Dr Guzzi said he would meet us at the campsite… and he did.
- The Cabin might be getting better or worse… I’m not totally sure.
- I don’t understand ICP tattoos but they seem to be popular
- Also not sure I feel comfortable writing about what happened the first night.
- Ed lead a really great ride between Port Royal and Carlisle going over two mountain passes
- Everyone’s bikes ran solid except for my KZ fouling a plug. I need to sort that out.
- Perry County has some great roads and scenery
See you next year Duncannon.

cb500t – engine rebuild – Part 1
2021 update – click here. Below is deprecated info… It looks like I’m not putting a 450 head on the 500t cylinders. Everything on the 500t is in way better condition so I’m going with it. Here is the 450 with the 500t engine in it. So long semi-stock bike… See ya soon when you’re […]
Solid weekend with a solid crew! Tiny beers, tears, and cheers!
Good times. The roads were smooth, the bumps were in less expected places…
Damn this looks like it was a good one!
I’ve been reading your blog for a while now and have taken inspiration from various posts and bikes that you’ve featured along the way, including Piston Trigger’s KZ and even used the Vermont registration trick to bring life to a junkyard find. “Duncannon” in the title caught my eye because it’s not too far from me, then I realized you went right through my hometown and relaxed at Dickinson and had a couple cold ones at Cafe Bruges. Maybe next summer my project will be finished and I’ll meet up with you along the river.
@JL- sounds good man.
