OK folks, it's getting near the wire.. I still haven't found a place yet, but I figured we's needs to gets motivated..
Every year I open my doors and have a BBQ for our Forum Brothers/sisters.. The last 2 have been great successes.. (albeit in NY)

I'm considering the Weekend To BE ANNOUNCED !!!. it should still be warm enough for most, and cool enough at night to keep from sweating your arses off..

Location is going to be Southern MD....... Somewhere.. I'll update when I sign my lease... LOL.....

or if the place I end up in is not going to work, I'll get details at a campground..

so who's in, who's out and who's a maybe.. post and let me know..

Depending on where I end up moving to. It'll probably be point lookout or Piney point..unless the house I am looking at today is a go (big backyard and 1.5 car garage)

...and plan it in such a manner that I will be able to attend your meeting, Anthony ! [hoping the meeting will continu year upon year of course]

Untill then...wishing lots of fun and friendship for everyone involved in it.:)

Good luck !!

Maryland? Right? That's one of those small states back east isn't it? I'm having trouble finding it on the map. Name a couple of bigger states nearby so that I can get an idea of where it is. Thank you for your patience and help.

I just drove to Maine in a cage. 4600 miles round trip. On my way to Maine I drove 1300 miles to washington DC straiht (24 ours) to spend the night at my brother in laws house. There is no way I could get off work for that. Now if I hit the lottery between now and then I will be there. :)

Actually, rather easy to find. Go to that city in the middle of CA, Sacramento I believe it is called, and find RT 50. Follow it untill it towards the other end in Ocean City MD. Before you get there you will see a big bridge, turn right and go south for about 1-2 hrs and you will be close.

You could always make it more of a fall thing this year and set it back further - if that works for more people no?

Redd, I'd love to make it, but seeing that it's almost 2400 miles from here, I kinda doubt that I'll be there. Hope y'all have a great time and have some BBQ for me.

I just noticed that you are moving to Southern Maryland. That's a whole different equation for me, Redd. I would have to take off Friday and Monday to make this work. Not out of the question, but it will depend on the date. Once the date is chosen, I'll get back to you.

According to google it's about 28.9 or 30.7 miles depending on how I go..

the 234-5 to 235 is the longer route but probably a lot more fun on the bike..

I may even find some back roads near work.

Grats on securing housing. I think that this is just too far for even a 4-day weekend trip, so I'm going to have to pass. I'm sure there are some nice roads down there, so have fun.

Hey Tigger..about a week ago(post #15..this thread) I made a snide comment concerning your location and the ability to find it. Well, I must humbley appologise for that comment. After looking at the map that you just provided I find that "California" is about 3 miles north of you at the intersection of 237 and 235. I had no idea that we were neighbors.

Sorry, forgot you most likely were not aware of the typical goings on down here in South East PA. There is a group of us who normally get together at a local Hooters on Friday nights around 7PM. Well, its typically Brad and I, however ChuckinPA, Screw Loose Dan, Dlish, and a few others join us from time to time. That is what I was hinting at.

Ride sounds great. Can you work in PA 61 through Centralia? It will bring you within 15 or so miles from Brad's house.

They usually go to a hooters about 45 minutes away from him so he doesn't make it.

I also hear rumors one of his bikes is up on the lift in pieces right now. :wonderlan
