Default Allegheny National Park

For the first time since I’ve been a forum member there will be no east coast meet & greet this year. Bummer!

This spring I made a mid week trip down to the Red Bridge Campground in the Allegheny National Forest and had a great time riding around the area. The campground was awesome. The campsites are clean, quiet, and private.

I now have another reservation to return on Monday the 13th to Thursday the 16th of September. Currently (as of July 13) there are a few tent sites, camper sites w/ac and a couple of small cabins still available for those dates in case anybody else is interested.

My reservation allows up to four people & two cars on my site and I have offered spots to a couple of members for their tents if they are able to get out and join me.
I use a senior pass that I purchased back when I turned 62 when it was still cheap and it cost me $59.00 to stay for the three nights.
So any interest?

Mick, pending settlement with Progressive, and surgical schedulings I’m really ready to get out of town. This sounds good!

Mick,
I'm going to keep an eye on this thread - Please keep it up to date if your plans change...

I'm interested in riding in that area and staying overnight. Then riding across Rt6 east to stay overnight. Then visit Bill's Bike Barn Museum at Berwick (Rt80 east of Bloomsburg) before heading home... I'll be looking to make it a 3-day trip with a few stops along the way at interesting sites, so I won't be racing over the territory.

Your Mon-Thu schedule is better for me to make it there for one of those nights... I hope the weather stays dry...

I'd be riding west of Harrisburg, then turning north toward Dubois... I want to revisit the Kinzua Bridge site (I was there before it blew down)...

Just a bump on this thread to see if others are available to make this a gathering...

I'll still be looking at the weather the week beforehand to determine if I'm going to make some reservation (it'll be a hotel - my camping days are long gone).

My sleeping on the ground in a tent days are also over. The little trailer lets me sleep warm and dry.
You were welcome to camp at my site.
Looking forward to following you for some miles.

Mick, I just booked a room at the Days Inn, for the 13th, 14th & 15th, with 2 double beds, in Warren PA. Any one want to share the room? As usual, this depends on the weather, but I like the area & it'll be good to see you again. I also have the old farts pass.

Nothing like retirement and a mid-week gathering.

Not used to the idea yet. I still always think about weekends like they are different somehow.

Don't worry, Greg, you'll get used to it pretty quick. Took me about a week before I lost track of what day it was.

what day of the week, huh?
I too have the “old guys pass”, has paid for itself many times over. Starting to feel guilty using it. Have blocked off the days in September, probable that Greg will be there as well.
Ken, you might take Brian up on the room offer if you’re able to commit.
