Iíve been reviewing the Sunday ride with some help from Marty. Just shy of 200 miles, east most point LaPorte, west most Slate Run. This is the PA country Iíve always wanted to explore. Liberty is at the halfway around 1:15 and the inn is only 26 miles down I-15 if you want to bail. Kickstands up at 9:00, expect return around 3:30. Gas stops at mile 75 and 140.

All our dining will be takeout. The hotel may offer a breakfast of some sort. Sunday lunch at either Subway or Pumpin Pantry in Canton PA.

Weather wise looks like 50% chance of showers Fri PM and Sat AM then mostly cloudy.

If youíre coming youíve already assessed your COVID-19 risk. The Pennsylvania site is at: https://www.pennlive.com/coronavirus...breakdown.html. The areas weíll be riding donít have a lot of cases and I donít plan in stopping at nursing homes.

And now Iíve been reviewing the Saturday ride. A long loop to the west. US-220 E the return route if you get lost - a lot of left and right turns on back roads. Kickstands up at 9:00, expect return around 3:00. Gas stops at mile 60, 94 and 157. Canít tell whether the Little League Museum is open - the last stop for any interested folks.

Thanks Marty! We have a lot to do while we are in PA, Rhonda's mom is coming back with us. We are loaded up and departing early tomorrow morning for a 7 hour drive up to Garnet Valley and then to Williamsport tomorrow night. Got most of our stuff in the truck between rain showers today. Looking forward to seeing everyone.

so....
My clutch started slipping on the way up.
I went out last night and I didn't have rear brakes.
Went to Autozone to get brake fluid and lost power to my instrument cluster and won't start.
Did a bunch of troubleshooting checked fuses etc no luck.
So, strike 3, I'm out.
Bikes in a trailer on the back of my son's t.
Headed south. Pretty bummed
