1.  I would be honored to join you.

2.  We have room in Fredericksburg, VA for several folks taking the south to north route.  Little less than 250 miles to Freehold.


Copy that Craig.

I expect it will unfold in time into something superb.

Where in eastern Ohio/western PA do you have a place?

I'd like to go along, work permitting.

Eastern Ohio:  Vermillion ...easy access from the OH Turnpike.

Western Pennsylvania:  North Hills of Pittsburgh ...easy access from PA Turnpike.

I'll be riding right past Youngstown, you'd be welcome to stay at my sister's new home ...if you want to stop that soon.  I suppose I should let her know eh?  Lol!

That is if I opt to pass Vermillion on the way east.  It's a good day's ride from here, Pgh. reachable too, just a longer day's ride.  They have a summer home on Lake Erie and are there off & on throughout the Spring/Summer.  It'll depend on where she's at when I'm riding to NJ.  The nice thing is both places are easy to get to from the super-highway with free food and lodging.  It could be interesting indeed if a half-dozen or more bikers show up at Lori's place.  : )

St Louis is about 600 miles from here, so yeah, you're a full day's ride away.

I work a goofy schedule - 24 hours on followed by 48 off. Whether I'd be able to go or not depends on when it would be, and if I can get the vacation time. (and getting my wife to agree to my going, too, of course!)

New Jersey is certainly reachable in a day's ride from here, though.

So we'd have 3 days - the day everyone arrives, the day with Walt, and the day everyone leaves?

That sounds about right to me.  I don't know why you think I'm in St. Louis, I'm in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

Yes, I saw that in your profile. But I used St Louis as a mileage marker, since it's a known distance from here.




Here's some more mileages:

Cedar Rapids - Freehold ...1038

Cedar Rapids - Vermilion ...527 

Cedar Rapids - Pittsburgh ...696

Vermilion - Freehold ...502

Pittsburgh - Freehold ...354


I'm kinda hoping Lori will be in Ohio when I travel.  I could make Pgh. alone, or with another compatable long rider.  I'm really not trying to create a group ride.  Unless its a Reality Tour, then the size of the group doesn't matter.  The meetup will be in Freehold.  It will be there that a group ride takes place (in this scenario).   For the well being of my sister's family I will limit her offer of hospitality to those I have met in person and am comfortable with.  Understandable  That's still a passle of people.  ; )
