Skeeters Pit BBQ RTE, Shamokin Dam, PA - 551 miles
May 26, 2012
Memorial Weekend Ride To Eat event. I rode 245 milest to Shamokin Dam to meet up with over 20 other ST owners. I left the house at 6:30am and met Johnathan in the Bob Evan's on Hwy 28 near Springdale, PA, north of Pittsburgh. We rode together to north of Kittanning, before Johnathan headed to a family event.
I continued on up hwy 66 to I-80 and headed East. ...for about 135 miles! I exited onto Hwy 15 and made it to Skeeters at 11:55! Along the way, Jay called to let me know he was going to be there. We had a really good turnout for the RTE. I don't know what the actual number was but it was probably over 20 people showed up. We had people from NJ and even one chap from Canada.
After lunch, I rode with Jay to his home in Hummelstown, about an hour south, near Harrisburg. After visiting with Jay's family, I headed home on the PA Turnpike. I was very fortunate that I missed all the heavy thunderstorms and only got a few light sprinkles along the way.
Made it home at 7:30pm after 551 miles!
