      Well the zoom meeting had a rocky start! it was my first, so it was a bit of a learning curve. anyway, the ride is set for the June 25-27 weekend. we will camp at the koa in coshocton. if you want to go, there is tent camping and two rvs you can reserve. the rvs are a bit pricey but if you share the cost between a few guys, it should be ok. saturday will be a southern route of approximately 150 miles, but the plan is to go as far as we can, and shoot back on state highways to camp. if someone rents the rv, we can use its kitchen to cook breakfast and dinner, saving us a lot of time. sunday is a northern route towards new Philadelphia, so at any point we will only be about an hour or so from home. any questions, feel free to contact me directly. if you want to go, and especially if you want to rent the rv time is of the essence to reserve it!   Ed Desimone, EMAIL TO ed_desimone@hotmail.com  or call 440 319 5995

      The KOA rate for tent camping is $62 for two adults plus $7 for each additional. The sites allow three tents, so we can split the cost 3 ways. We need to get a head count and who would like to share sites or rent the RVs. Assume that the sites will go quickly!

      I booked RV site 11, and will ‘camp’ in my Transit van.  I’ll bring cooking gear for breakfast if you’d like.

      Here are the GPS TRACKS for the Saturday and Sunday rides. These are TRACKS, not routes. Tracks do not give you turn by turn directions, do not recalculate, etc. All they do is draw a line on your GPS that you need to follow to stay on the track. If you don’t see the track on your screen zoom out until you do.

      Most GPSs can handle tracks, but not all. I believe all Zumos can do tracks as well as GPS made for hiking, but GPSs made for cars cannot do tracks. After you import the file to your GPS you will need to find the menu item that enables showing the tracks on the map.

      Included in this file are the tracks for Saturday (Coshocton to Nelsonville) and Sunday (Coshocton to New Philadelphia), tracks for two short challenging sections if you are interested in them (enable your GPS to show these as well), and the waypoint for the Coshocton KOA.

      The Saturdaty ride is 200 miles and the Sunday ride 130 miles. Ed is thinking this is probably more than riders will want to do so the plan is to ride as far as you like and then find your way back to the KOA or your home on paved roads.

      These routes are part of the Trans Ohio Trail that is being developed and curated by Ohio riders. Check out the link on ADVrider for more information.

      Hello Everyone. I was planning on camping also. I saw in an earlier message that they allow 3 tents per site. Who would be amenable to allowing me to add a tent to their site and splitting the cost? Thank you, Michael

      Just so everyone knows, anyone from th club can come out and camp even if you don’t want to ride dirt with us. There is also the Three Rivers Loop and other great riding in the area.
