If you're interested in riding with us in next summer's 2010 PA forum ride, we'd like to get your inputs. Currently we've been discussing leaving Carlisle, PA on Thursday morning 8/5/2010 (some of us would stay overnight beforehand in the area) and then riding to Marlinton WV.

If we stay 2 nights in Marlinton (Thursday, Friday), we'd do a loop ride on Friday and then head to another location (probably eastern panhandle of WVA) for Saturday night and then head home on Sunday 8/8.

If we spend 3 nights in Marlinton (Thursday, Friday, Saturday), we'd have 2 days for loop rides in the area (absolutely no shortage of fantastic rides in that area) and would leave from there on Sunday. Depending on interest, we could coordinate a stop Sunday night somewhere, again probably in the eastern panhandle or WVA or south-central PA which might help break up the distance for folks with a longer ride home, but at the cost of needing to ride on Monday.

What say you?

I'll start. I brought up the idea of only 2 nights, but I voted for 3 nights in Marlinton. I'd only have a 5-6 hr ride home, but continuing riding with some others on Sunday and making another nights stop somewhere is an option for me.

I voted for 3-nights in one location. It would be a pain in the caboose to switch hotels just for one night. Of course my opinion is moot if I don't get my stupid hands worked out for another long ride.

I voted two nights. I'm thinking I might be going myself next year with Sandy's situation. Not a good idea to ride when your hands go numb. Hopefully we'll get it worked out.

I voted for three nights, but don't factor that in too heavily, since I have no idea yet whether we'll be able to make it.

I voted for 2 nights since it's 8 hours by slab (without stops) from Malinton to my home. But it's doable and I will do whatever the majority wants.

Skip - You and Cheryl are welcome to stay in my house on Sunday night if this is the way the group goes.

I chose option 3. There is plenty of great riding if we use that as a home base. Socializing and riding, what better way to spend a couple of days.
Besides that, if it's the first of the month, there will be lots of entertainment watching the drunk locals.

Looks like 3 nights is winning. I will call tomorrow to block the rooms. I will just leave early on Sunday for the trip home. I hope someone else is traveling north at the same time so that I am not riding alone.
