    Drat! I totally forgot about fall soccer. I am assistant coaching my son's team again this fall. This past spring all of our practices/games were on Sunday, so I think I will be good to go for Saturday the 13th.

    So how about:

    1. Breaficks before the ride.
    2. Ride to Gettysburg/tour the battlefield.
    3. Cashtown Inn for lunch.
    4. Winery for tasting/cigars
    5. Union Cigar Shop
    6. Ride back.

    Of course always flexible on the schedule. I believe in a NO DRAMA ZONE.

    Interested

    I would also be interested. Would prefer a weekend date, though. I'd be coming in from Pittsburgh, so would have to do an overnight.
    I,too, went on this years MOA tour (though I did the optional Antietam tour). What a great event!
    I'm up for a cigar, too!

    Can people from NJ get in on this?
    It's a 3 hour ride for me, when the details settle maybe a Friday and Saturday night hotel stay is in the cards.

    I organize a tour with friends to Harpers Ferry, Antietam, and Gettysburg in June each year. Get only one day in Gettysburg though a weekend sounds good.

    This ride sounds great, but weekends are really tough for me. Anyone interested in a mid week tour out there?

    Not sure I'd say that. I bop down there a couple of times a week year 'round and have never seen NO tourists. Just fewer.

    This area was one of the first stops on our big Great Lakes loop last month. There's a nice collection of good roads in the area around the Cacoctin / Camp David area in Maryland not far from there. We camped at the Artillery Ridge Campground - a big RV park but with a nice secluded place in the very back for tents that had a pavilion with picnic tables and power. If you guys aren't familiar and ask I'd be happy to shoot you some GPS tracks for the area.

    Sorry all I didn't update, been out of commission after some knee surgery, so I have been out of the saddle. Would love to do something still.

    Since it's now more winter-like- I have 3" snow on the ground here- and if this ride doesn't get done until spring, keep in mind that the MOA will probably do the Gettysburg weekend getaway again in 2013. This year's sold out quickly and it was a great time. IIRC, it was around April 15.

    Yes, I think the weather has turned and this might be something for the springtime. I'm looking at May, midweek before the crowds.

    ClassicVW - I just looked at your sig line. I had a beautiful blue '78 Hawk when I was in College, what a great Motorcycle! I think it cost me something like $1380 right out of the showroom. I rode that thing everywhere and never had a bit of trouble, covered the East Coast up to Maine and down to Florida. It's funny to look back at a 400 and remember it as a full size travel bike, but it was, or at least I thought so!
    Ride Safe,
