Hmm...

Count me as a definite maybe.

We'll see as the time gets closer.

At the very least, I'll try to get down there and pre-ride the route to check out conditions for ya. We'll see - the summer is filling up...

Mark,
Count me in...it might just be a one day thing for me, but hopefully I can come down Saturday (for the pre-party). I was just down 536 a couple weeks ago on my way to WV...that road ain't what it use to be. Looking forward to seeing everyone that can make it again. :yahoo:

You need to get Jim to come up for this one

I'd be in except the weekend before is the Rendevous Rally south of Montreal, and the weekend after is EOM. Considering I'm calling sick for both events, I figure I'd just be right out of work entirely if I tried for a three-fer.

Sorry to hear that Steve...but I understand.





(After this Ramble, I'm planning on some WV riding and scoping out Breaks Interstate Park for a possible Wheaton Appalacian Camping Meet location...before heading over to the EOM Area.)

Count me in! I'll be in Marietta that weekend and was hoping to get in some riding
on Sunday. This would be perfect.

I'll be leaving Marietta Monday morning and heading down SLD/BRP etc.,
taking the LONG way to EOM.

Here ye! Hear ye!

Calling for all sporttouring type riders for the 2011 SE Ohio Fall Ramble! 350 miles of curvy road riding bliss. The route is as follows...
Posted Image

Like the previous couple of years, we are basing this Ramble out of Caldwell, OH. Griff and I are staying at the Best Western, reservations have been made already...I have no idea how many rooms are available, so check quickly. There is a great family restaurant within walking distance of the Best Western for breakfasts and dinners.

Kickstands up (Full tanks) at 9:00am Sunday morning at the Best Western parking lot.

Gas stops/breaks at point 12, point 23, and in Woodsfield. Lunch stop in Marietta at Wendy's.

Thought we'd take an extended stop in Woodsfield at one of the places there...unless people have to hit the road.

So how about it?:clapping:

Like ALWAYS, these roads are not for the feint of heart, so ride your own ride!

Sept, is a bit away for me. :) But I've put it on my calendar.

There are many factors that affect my schedule (in no particular order):
5 kids (and all that comes with that)
Job
Horses
Shooting sports
and other rides that are still in the planning stages ;)

I would likely ride out and meet yall, probably not spend the night on Sat.

I rode the Hanibal to Woodsfield road a couple of weeks ago. They did many sewerline crossovers on the road. Reall a nice smoothe repair, but the stuff looks as though is could be slippery. It shines like patent leather shoes. 147 is very nice, if you come that far north. MIGHT join you guys, if we are back from Wisconsin. At any rate, I'll ride a few of the routes when time gets close, as I live not quite a hr from Hanibal.

Thanks Tim for the report. If 536 is not in good shape, then we may just do a down and back on 255 up north to 78 east, then north to 556 west.

We won't be going north of 556...so we will not be riding 147 on this route.

This will be an excellent tune-up for EOM. I'm IN since it will be on the way to EOM (sort of).

I should be able to make it.

A couple road notes...right now 26 is closed just north of Dart,I'll check and see if it will be open by September.It really doesn't matter though because there is a fun by-pass...Archer's Fork road to 7 to 260.Also,I read on the Ohio Riders site that they're paving the lower section of 800 right now,could be interesting if you want to include it.As a couple others have already mentioned 536 is hurting,ODOT covered the bumps that they created with two feet wide tar snakes.
