Susquehanna Super Hike, 29.6 Mile Day Hike (all are welcome!)

Hey guys, this is a supported day hike run by the Keystone Trails Association. I was signed up to do it a few years ago when it was cancelled due to that crazy hurricane that hit the East Coast (some of the trail was underwater!).

Anyway, I just signed up to do it again. It should be a nice way to stay in shape and get ready, also, for the 4-state challenge we're going to do.

I'll drive out from DC Friday night and plan to tent camp in the campground that weekend.

To do this event, you don't need to pay me anything, but the fee for the event is $75. You should pay that soon, as it will fill up. Note that a group from Washington Backpackers will also be there, so we'll have company, even it's just a few of us!

More details as we get closer.

All are welcome, so no VMO, MO tags.

    Thanks, everyone, for making this great event happen! I've wanted to do it for several years! What a great little group we had! Sad Cover Girl and Twinkletoes couldn't make it!

    Hello UL Backpackers,

    Anyone driving up from DC? I can go Friday afternoon/evening or SUPER early Saturday morning and can meet at any Metro. Live and work downtown. Happy to share expenses.

    • patricia z.

      Yes. Planning to camp at Group site with Steve Meneely and Washington backpackers.

      Cool!

    Everyone! We're less than two weeks away from this! I hope you're all in good shape! We don't have to organize too much for this, I don't think.

    Jen, I have to be up north Friday, 9/6, during the day, would you mind arranging the carpool for Alison and Dan? What do we owe you for the campsites?

    Twinkle Toes, want me to pick you up on my way out there? I can do that easily enough.

    Jen is bringing brats for grilling. I'll bring a cooler stocked with beverages.

    What else do we need?

    • Jen

      Great. Daniel, I'll email you separately to figure out a good spot to meet in D.C. on Friday. There's a slight chance you might have to ride back on Sunday with Michael but I'll let you know later this week. Either way, we'll make sure you get out of PA.

      Hi Jen, any spots left in your vehicle to ride up on Friday? I can meet at any metro stop. Live and work in downtown area. Happy to share expenses.

    Gah - I really hate to bail on superhike weekend but I was invited to a wedding of newfound friends and decided to go. Really sad to miss hanging out.

    September 1, 2013

    • Michael M.

      @ cover girl ... Man, we're going to miss you! :)

    All -- for Saturday night, I'm happy to bring along some food for us to eat. I figured we'd be interested in relaxing a bit after the SUPER hike and not going too far to find food. I can make some potato or other type of salad and bring along some brats/sausages for grilling. (It sounded better than Mountain House...)

      I'm soo excited about this it's funny. :)

    • Michael M.

      I'll bring a well-stocked cooler for us for Saturday night!

    not sure this is the best idea but hey, i'm in

    August 9, 2013

    • Michael M.

      LOL ... Oh, it'll be fun!

      August 9, 2013

    • Jen

      Yay! Glad you're coming. I think we can squeeze you into one of the campsites... we'll just need to figure out tents and who has extra space.

      August 9, 2013

  • Jen

    Hey Miles and Michael. I called and got a campsite at Pequa Creek Campground. We do have the option to go in the group campsite with other Super Hike participants, but I thought it best to grab a spot in case people preferred to have an individual site. Also, the cost was relatively the same between the group site and an individual one. Let me know if you're interested. It can hold two tents.

    July 24, 2013

    • Jen

      Individual site that holds two tents.

      August 6, 2013

    • Jen

      And the update... I now have two tent sites for the weekend that can accommodate me, Denise, Michael, Miles, and Daniel.

    Heck yeah!! ;)

    August 5, 2013

    • Michael M.

      Yay, Twinkle Toes!

      1 · August 5, 2013

    • Denise M.

      Ok, I got to pay $90 because it's after August 1 and have my receipt in my e-mail! :)

      August 5, 2013

  • Denise M.

    Too late to register? I believe between running, hiking & such, that I'll be in really decent shape by then...I don't know what the trail is like & know without a full pack I'm decent, most especially within a month's time...

    August 5, 2013

    • Michael M.

      No, you can still register. I'm sure you'd be in good enough shape, and you'd certainly be welcome.

  • Jen

    Sent in my application via mail - fought the CAPTCHA on the online registration and lost. I anticipate I'll get in but will update my registration if I don't

    July 13, 2013

    • Michael M.

      I too found it very hard to use.

      July 15, 2013

    • Jen

      Got my confirmation over email so I'm set.

      July 16, 2013

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
