MTSFMCW - Mohawk Trail.....2016.....Plan B

Hey Kids....The Mohawk Trail State Forest Motorcycle Camping Weekend (MTSFMCW) is not to be this year as our host has more pressing riding to do out west (Yes Gary we're all jealous).

So, in honor of Gary, I'd like to propose an even lesser organized plan B, so we can sit around the campfire and curse his good fortune...

Who: The Usual Suspects (Not just a great movie)
What: Good friends riding the Puppy Dog Trail and VT Gaps
When: Jun 24 - 26
Where: Silver Lake State Park, Barnard, VT
Why: Why Not? Like you really need a reason to ride...


This is a totally disorganized, Big-Boy, non-event! Make your own reservations, arrive when ya can, find your own places to eat, find your own riding partners and leave whenever the F you want.

That said.....What say you and Who's in???

Route: Puppy Gaps GPX

Map: Puppy Gaps Map

Being planned in perfect MTSFMCW style, Pete!! I think it's an outstanding idea. And as much as y'all might be jealous of me riding out west, I'll be jealous of you riding Vermont. Equally beautiful, just different. More importantly, the company of this great loose group of riders will be sorely missed.
Presently, still hunkered down in a -10degree morning.
Ride safe all ( in your dreams! ) :-)

PS: I will be following y'all here on Stromtrooper and posting from time to time. And...... there's room in the trailer......

Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. - quote attributed to Helen Keller.

AWESOME non-planned, non-event, Pete. Nanyee and I are in and we've already reserved a tentsite.

For those interested in attending, I recommend reserving a spot ASAP. Silver Lake is incredibly popular and fills up fast, especially during prime time. As of now there are about 30 tent sites available and no lean-tos.

Hey Pete.....I have heard a lot of good things about the Mohawk event, and will put it on next year's event list. The 26th is my 40th wedding anniversary, and I'm sure that Nanyee would cut kill her Phil, just like my wife will kill me if I was gone that weekend

Have fun,

Phil

Hey, just got site #T31. Close enough to Aus to enjoy his wonderful company but far enough away to avoid, well, you know.

Just put it down on my calendar. Will reserve a site this evening. Glad to see the usual cast of characters are already chiming in.
Can't wait for this event. No hate on Gary for abandoning us ( LOL). Just wish his crew would have stayed behind to make us that great food. We better come up with an alternative. Maybe Yuval's wife would make us some middle eastern food.
