Disappointed you didn't make the list for the 1st Pagoda drive?  Be disappointed no longer because I've got one better: the Inaugural Catawissa Creek Rambler!  

When -                   Sun Aug 29th, 2021

                                  Arrive:                     9:00 a.m.

                                  Drivers' Meeting:   9:30 a.m.

                                  Depart:                    9:45 a.m. 

Where -                  Meet at Sheetz, Sugarloaf Township

                                  551 PA-93, Sugarloaf, PA 18249   LOCATION

 

Event Leader:  Brian Wowak

Join me for 124 miles of exquisite central Pennsylvania mountain and valley roads!  The first segment departs from Sheetz and rolls through gentle farm land before circling around and climbing over Nescopeck Mountain,  leading into a breezy run down the Scotch Valley before looping around the foot of the mountain at the other end to our rest stop at Loves Travel Stop in Mifflinville. 

From there we'll travel east along the Susquehanna river to Nescopeck where we'll turn south and head back into the hills before looping back to West where we'll cross a covered bridge over Catawissa Creek before settling back into the rolling farmlands along the Susquehanna river as we approach Danville.  Time-permitting we may stop at a predetermined location for a group photo of our Miatas and drivers.  Near Danville we'll stop for Brunch at the Cherokee Taphouse and Grille. 

After brunch we'll head back into the rolling hills and valley roads east of Numedia,  where we'll pass the Roaring Creek Friends Meeting House,  a Quaker house of worship build of log construction in 1795-96. From there we'll continue southeast over the Little Mountain where we'll skirt the edges of Ringtown before heading north on Rt 339/Catawissa Creek Rd.  We'll explore a few more country roads before ending back in Sugarloaf Township at Valley Scoops and More,  which serves Leibys Ice Cream. 

Total drive time is approximately 4 hours plus roughly 1 hour stop for brunch,  so roughly 5 hours from start to ice cream. 

This event will follow the current Pennsylvania rules for COVID-19 safety. To avoid common handling of materials, we will email the directions to participants, for home printing, and we will eliminate the usual paper sign-in sheet. Since the sign-in confirms your agreement with LVMOC’s standard Waiver and Release, we will now consider your post to this event thread, indicating that you intend to participate, to be your “electronic” signature, indicating your agreement with said Waiver and Release (copy available on request).

We will use FRS radios for communications. Be sure to arrive by 9:00 a.m. with a full gas tank and an empty bladder.

Turn by turn instructions and a GPX file will be made available to anyone who attends

Presidential Note: This is drive #32!!!!!

Haha  -  I was also going to add the word " PhotoShop " to my post but I thought, "no way, Brian, wouldn't do that".
