sick day?

Would there be any interest from anyone to call into work sick and go riding for a day sometime in the next 2 or 3 weeks. Maybe Raystown for a day trip or any place someone would recomend.

I think I'm gettin' the sniffles....

RJ said...

I can get sick any weekday in March except for March 16, 19, and 20th. So lets pick a date. cough, cough, cough

clownbike said...

yes, a date would be good. a good sick day needs some planning.

RJ said...

I'll throw out 2 dates. Tuesday march 13 or Thursday march 22. let me know if either of those dates work. I am self employed, so I can be pretty flexible if another day is better for others.

Shawn said...

I should be good for the 22nd.

Is anyone interest in riding at swatara for the sickday?

RJ said...

What are the trails like at swatara? I'm up for anything fun.

clownbike said...

swatara is a lot like raystown but smaller. no major climbs no big descents. the trails are fast and smooth and are single track unlike the 1 1/2 track at raystown. It is a state park so there should be some info to be found online. The drive from the C-burg area is roughly the same as Raystown.

RJ said...

I checked it out on YouTube and the parks website. Looks good to me. My question is, Can we waste a day there? If so, sounds good to me.
Does the 22nd work for you guys?

Shawn said...

I've ridden Swatara a couple times and they are some fun trails but for me its not worth missing a day of work(can't beleive I just said that). I've rode at Raystown several times and there are still trails I haven't ridden so if anyone is up for a day at Raystown on the 22nd or a different day I'm in. I've also heard good things about Rothrock state forest but have never ridden there.

RJ said...

I was actually hoping for Raystown too. Clown, are you open for Raystown?
I have never been to either place, so I am trusting you guys, but I have heard alot more about Raystown.

clownbike said...

Sure Raystown is good too. I've ridden Raystown several times and it's still plenty fun. It's not at all technical but it's very easy to let your need for speed get you in trouble. And there is a nice place in Huntington to grab a sandwich and a beer after the ride.

RJ said...

Cool. Let's plan on march 22 at Raystown. we can plan carpooling closer to date

RJ said...

one week out from the planned sick day. everyone still good for next Thursday?

Shawn said...

I'm still good. What time was you thinking?

RJ said...

Im open for the entire day and I get up early, so we can leave as early as everyone wants.
Shawn, you live in carlise right? Do you want to meet up somewhere and carpool up or just meet us at Raystown? I would assume we could meet in Shade Gap/Orbisonia area. Would that make it easier for you?

Shawn said...

I'm waiting to see if another guy from Carlisle can get off work and go along. How many are coming from your area? I'm hoping Jesse is also going along.

RJ said...

I am working on getting a few more guys to come along, but all i know now is Clownbike. He hasn't responded to this thread again, but I thought i would re-enter a post on Monday about the sick day, but maybe i should do it now and see if anyone else is avaialable.
That would be cool if Jessee can come.
