FALL SWARM: 9/30/18

The crew met at the Clinton Station Diner for breakfast and, as always, some good conversation ensued. It had been many months since we last met due to a variety circumstances, not to mention the weather. A couple of new faces joined us that morning. When we were finished with the meal, we headed up the street and past the Pilot Station. Due to a Tanker Truck depositing some fuel, we gassed up at the Mobil Station on the Pattenburg Circle. We took some connecting roads just to warm up the rubber via Asbury, Broadway, and ascended Millbrook Road.

The band of five crossed the Delaware River and headed for the "Carousel" that connects Riverton and PA 611. A quick loop up & around Lake Minsi and then we headed up to PA 191 traversing the Appalachian Trail. PA 447 dropped us at Canadensis where where we stopped for some coffee in the newly renovated country kitchen now called "First Place Cafe" on PA 390. A quick trip through Promised Land State Park and the town of Hawley left us on PA 590 with a couple of "pokeys" to impede our progress. Off of PA 590, at Woodloch Springs, there is a nice little fuel and food mart with a Mobil Station to make a pit stop.

We crossed the Delaware River once again at the Roebling Viaduct and decided that some sweeper training could raise the spirits. At Barryville, we climbed up NY 55 and turned onto CR 32 at Eldred, then a quick shift over to CR 31 at Glen Spey and down to the base of "Hawks Nest" on NY 97. From there, we went East through Port Jervis and picked up some fresh macadam on CR 521. Trying to avoid the congestion on US 206, we opted for Deckertown Turnpike through High Point State Park and over the summit down to CR 519.

By now the troops were getting hungry for "dunch", so one more fuel stop at the Conoco Station in Branchville where we did some makeshift repairs on the Aprilia and Ninja to correct some fasteners that had come loose. Thank God for wire ties! We then opted for some back roads over to Pub 517 in Green Township. If you like lobster and crab, this is the place to dine. After feeding the furnace, we decided on how to split up and return home.

nathanktm took the quickest route down to Interstate 78 to Long Island along with rwb79 heading down through Hackettstown; while zaq123, ZBrutale, and I took the back roads over to Route 31 in New Hampton.

I clocked about 208 miles for the day and was a little beat. Thanks to all who came out and a warm welcome to ZBrutale and thesickest who unfortunately, had to return home unexpectedly.
