Pre-Summer Swarm: 06/03/12

Everyone arrived at Pilot on time and there was no hesitation to get on the road with kickstands up at the appointed time of departure. A little "over hill and over dale" got the crew seasoned via some of the best roads that Hunterdon County has to offer. The roads were exceptionally clear despite the amount of precipitation we have had during the past few weeks. We made our way over to Belvidere and crossed the bridge into the Keystone State. Our plan was to get up into the Pocono Mountains, but Mother Nature had a different idea.
A quick trip through Bangor and up 191 with zero impediments deposited the crew on the back roads heading over to the Delaware Water Gap. Our first stop was at the Welcome Center in PA. With the impending cloud cover, we decided to stay within the confines of the recreation area and work our way North. Milford Road will be great once the construction is finished, but it's going to be a while. We were able to navigate Log Tavern Road(yes, the bridge is finally repaired) without a problem just before hooking with PA 737. A quick survey of the sky told me to make a left and head for the Dingman's Ferry Bridge as raindrops were starting to strike my windscreen with alarming regularity. It was a subtle cue sent from heaven above to head for daylight.
A nice run down the Jersey side of the Recreation Area from Layton through Peter's Valley then on to Millbrook Village left us with a decision to chance the rain in Blairstown or turn right into Worthington State Forest. We chose the later and were greeted with an abundance of potholes; some large enough to swallow you whole. A short rest at the Welcome Center in Jersey off of Interstate 80 prompted our hunger alarm to sound.
We made a quick sprint down Rt 46 and up Ramseyburg Road to the center of Hope. A nice little tour of Mountain Lake ensued as we made our way over to Oxford for some vittles. Our choice to dine at "Top of the Green" was a good one; for everyone seemed to enjoy their meal. Good conversation about the events of the day and getting to know some new attendees was the order of the day.
I clocked 171 miles for the day and everyone arrived home safely and without getting soaked. Thanks to all who came out and a big welcome to newcomers Chris and John.

Till we meet again,

Yep. The old dinosaur needed the exercise.


Gee, that sounds like I needed the exercise.


Maybe the ST could make it out for the next Swarm.
