    I'm still not feeling well and it's going to be a long ride. I was looking forward to the trip but I would like to be a 100% before I get on the road. Have a great ride and be safe.

      You make an interesting point there Harold. I did Marietta and rode the "Ohio's Tail of the Dragon" last Saturday and did it all in one day. 380 miles. By the way, Marietta Boat House BBQ is a nice place to have lunch/dinner.

    I could easily meet in millersburg also.

    May 3, 2014

  • Dave & Karla C.

    Karla and I would like to go to Marietta. Could we meet up with the group in Millersburg. We could meet at the corner of 83 and W Clinton St in Millersburg. It's one street before the light at 39/62
    What time would you be going through Millersburg?

    May 2, 2014

    • Carol L.

      Yes, glade you are going. I don't know how long it will take us to get Millersburg, I will try to find out, I think Terry might know.

    Would love to have been able to say yes to the Marietta ride, as it is only 80 miles from home and I am intimately familiar with the area...went to school at Ohio University and worked as an engineer for ODOT in Marietta.......same schedule conflict for me, though, as the Grand Canyon ride.......don't know what your plans are, but there are plenty of great places to eat and a seemingly infinite variety of great two-lane roads......the Blue Bell Diner in McConnellsville is a classic and has details if you google their website.......Quinet's Court in New Martinsville, WV is a great treat, as well.......hope everyone has a marvelous ride.

      Terry, It would be great if you could meet us there and show us around,

      May 2, 2014

    • Terry W.

      I would if I could.....have back-to-back basketball games on that Saturday and Sunday at the Shootout in Wheeling......depending on your plans, a good ride home would be SR26 from Marietta to Bethesda or Morristown, SR149/SR331 to New Athens, then SR9 to Cadiz and SR250 home.....or SR9 from New Athens to Carollton, and home from there.....

  • Terry S.

    This may be a possibility for me. Will have to wait until we get closer to the date to commit..
