Nov 7th dirt bike trip – camping details

Screen-Shot-2014-10-27-at-8.55.00-AM

I called the main forest office twice today and got all the details from some lady. Here is what we’re gonna do:

  • Leave philly friday at 8pm. Nov 6th
  • Meet at aramingo wawa gassed up and ready to LEAVE AT 8pm
  • Get to forest/campsite at 11ish. Easy drive, all highway. $5 toll on turnpike
  • I figure we can set up at night. Better than getting there Sat at 1pm
  • We’re going to stay at campsite #70. It’s free for everyone. Lady said camp sites are real far apart and almost all spots are open at the moment. See Word DOC and PDF
  • Lady said the dirt roads/trails are extensive… ride up and down sides of mountains. Good look out points. “Vistas” on the map.
  • She tried to tell me the 2 main paths we want to stay on are:
    – dual sport on forest road
    – dual sport on driveable trail
  • She said it is deer hunting season, so heads-up
  • Rip around all day Sat, and Sunday morning… get back to philly Sunday night
  • Weather should be mid 50’s during the day … if it’s supposed to rain, we’ll reschedule
  • Dont forget… bring extra gas / plugs / oil / tools / camp chairs etc etc

    Cool.

    I might leave earlier on Friday like around 4 or 5.

    FYI: we need to do 3 bikes per truck since Adams truck is out of commission and Alex’s truck also might not make it.

    We’ll have a chase car that extra people can go in so trucks aren’t crammed.

The adventures of Adam and Ed

Adam always wanted a cb550. On the way back from Denver my chain snapped. We ended up stranded in Morgantown PA. A random guy named Dan came to help us. He had two cb550’s in his garage up the street from where we broke down. He gave me the chain off his bike so we […]
