Just trying to accommodate everyone possumman. I know the route. All anyone needs to do is follow me. Hell, I'm not even sure I can get the file to my Zip drive right.

And Linda I'm assuming?

What about Drew? Is he doing okay, and did he get a new bike yet?

Unfortunately, I'll have to be counted out for this one. Tried to make it work, but I just have too many things going on. Thanks anyway, Raineman, for putting this together. Looks to be great weather for Saturday, so I hope you all have a safe and enjoyable trip!

Well...all attempts to get the ride mapped, on a zip drive, and downloaded to my system so that it will follow my chosen route...have failed. I am sure it is something I am doing wrong, as I am still very brand new to this system. I just can't figure it out yet.

I'll still have the printed directions for everyone. Other than that, guess you'll just have to follow me.

Sorry Stoveman (and others who wanted me to load it to their system).

Raineman - I have a GPX file I created that I believe is the route you are planning. If you want to look it over and see if you can import it in to your GPS. PM me with an e-mail address and I can e-mail you the file.

What Stoveman said.

Yes. From the Park & Ride.

As mentioned earlier, plan on about 5 hours give or take, depending of course on how long we stop to look, take pictures (we are definitely going to some "picture worthy" sights), eat lunch, and generally goof off. I will NOT be in a hurry. If people need to split off at some point, no problem, just let us know so we aren't waiting for you at the next turn.

Towns to watch for weather would include Sykesville, Thurmont, and Cascade.

Unless it is a hard steady rain, I plan to be at the rendezvous point, rain gear in tow. Right now, all the locations show it clearing throughout the day remaining cloudy.

Great minds think alike.

Depends on how much time everyone wants to spend at each stop. Also depends on if we leave on time. A very rough guess would be noon...ish.

Agreed, It doesn't look like the rain should be too bad. I'll have my rain gear packed just in case.

Any planned stops at a gas station in the middle part of the trip? or guess a few of us can run to fill up at lunch and get back before folks leave? Looks like around 100 miles planned, so I know I'll have to fill up once. couple other folks might have really limited range too.
Looks like a great day if it stays dry, but packing rain gear just in case.

Oh, forgot to mention - my buddy Tom from the Flight93 ride *may* be able to join us, and his wife might be riding with him. I'll update when I've heard a definite go/no-go.
