A ride so nice it just wouldn't be right not to do it again in the fall! 

 

When -                   Saturday , October 23rd, 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

Presidential note: This is drive number 39 for the year!

 

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 lunch at the Cherokee Taphouse and Grille.  (They serve an entirely different menu on Saturday so we all get to try something new!) 

After lunch 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 the Milkhouse Creamery for homemade ice cream. 

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

This run will be limited to 15 cars.

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.

Alright that means Jeff is the 15th car and anyone else is on the waiting list.  Also it looks like my old Copilot from my days in the Space Coast Miata Club, Kara,  is going to be in town that weekend,  so I should be a two-person car for a change.  The updated GPX files and turn by turn instructions are ready to go (Thanks Walter!) but I won't send them out until the week of so they don't get lost.

We're at the 15 car cap so you'll be on the standby list if anyone drops off.

You can keep checking this thread,  but if you get added to the list I'll email you the turn by turn directions and Garmin gpx file a few days before the run.  That said your email might put me in your spam folder so best bet is to check back here a few times as the day approaches.

Sounds like a plan. You can save the Garmin file, I don't have a Garmin. That might keep you out of spam.

Well it'll be a mass email to all participants but if you want I can PM you my email address,  you can add me to your contacts and that should keep me out of your spam box.

That's great (sorry Michele!) This will be our first ride with the club, our schedule this year has been brutal.

Thanks for letting us know. 🙂

I did it earlier this year and it was great. Enjoy your first (of we hope many) run!
