In talking to Sean (Tech Art Guy) he has been wanting to host some kind of ride near the Hocking Hills area. Since it is a bit late to look at something this fall, I am going to work with him to put together something for the spring. Probably late April or early May, before the other more established rides take place. Hocking Hills State park is about 15 miles southwest of Logan, Ohio. Probably would be looking to have a Friday afternoon ride and 2 Saturday rides.

Just checking for interest as we will probably go out next month and search for routes.

Cary;
Would love to see Sean again. Last time was back in 10-11 at New Holland Rally. I would be interested in the gathering, so let me know what the schedule is.

Based on the number of riders in the northeastern Ohio, WV, NC, and PA areas, it should be a decent gathering. I only got to go to New Holland in 2012 and it was a great time. Hopefully we can be that well prepared and just have some good fellowship with other riders. We all would like to do something real soon, but hopefully with enough time to plan it out, it would be a good time.

Would be interesting - we have never been to any gatherings or even ride in groups.

But we ride down to the Hocking Hills a good bit.

We (my folks) built a Log Cabin outside of Laurelville, OH on a road that goes on down to Rt 374.

Thanks for all the tentative "Yes's". We will definately be putting something together for the spring of next year. Due to this being our first time putting it all together, we would appreciate any suggestions and/or tips some of you might have. Basically, it is a stand around and talk about Burgmans weekend with some riding and food thrown in.

We would have liked to do one this fall, but things did not clear up until recently to get the planning done. Hope to see all of you there.

Vdub,

I bought my Burgy from a guy that works up at Findlay University. He works at the horse program.

This weekend myself and Sean will be going out to check out the roads. We will also be scouting out restaurants and lodging. Hard to believe it is only about 6 months away.

Probably interested also. I doubt I'll have Friday off, though...

Trying to get things figured out. The plan would be to have a 1 ride Friday afternoon, and 2 on Saturday. There would be no problem with anyone who wants to hang out and do their own rides or just one or two. In the end, I'm hoping that we can all just get together and have a nice weekend. Hope to have a website for it before the New Year's.

I went over some of the suggested routes. There was some very nice roads with a lot of curves. Still a lot of planning to do, but I am excited. South of Lancaster, it's mostly small towns, so getting around is not a problem. Roads all seem to be in good shape. Only ran into one patch of gravel and it was very small. That being said, it is fall and in spring it will be the beginning of construction season. Good part is not too much construction going on in this area.

Waiting with anticipation for info on this meet-up. I hope you can give us some advance info. as to possible dates, so we can adjust our calendar accordingly. We have Seven Multi day Trips already planned for this summer, and would Hate to have any conflict with this ride
Please list the actual meet-up location so we can look for and schedule our Motels for our stay.

I have not posted any updates as I was not sure this would happen. The first one is always the hardest.

Sean and myself will be going there on Saturday to finalize everything. At that point we will set everything in stone. Unofficially, we will be shooting for April 24, 25, & 26th.

Hey everyone, back from said digital hibernation. We looked around hawking hills yesterday and got the information from the local hotels as far as events going on around the proposed dates and it is settled that the ride will be held on the weekend of April 24-26. The routes are still to be finalized and digitized for route packs but maybe to ride up Saturday morning to Zanesville out of Logan to run rt.555 down to rt.7 on the river and head back. Friday still looking at the options, more to come soon.
