Thanks man. I'm really looking forward to making the trip again in August. Hopefully things will be less muddy and there'll be less storm damage in the way.

I had a blast thanks. I'm considering the possibility of Bald Eagle State Forest next time around. http://www.patrailriders.org/riding-areas/
I'll start posting links and resources for the target area here for others and also to keep track of stuff myself.

I had to put off this trip in August due to starting a new job. I rescheduled it for this weekend but that plan is scratched thanks to some joker who dropped a box of utility knife blades at the intersection by my work.

Thanks! If it had been my front wheel I'd have been in trouble since I was leaned into a hard right turn when the tire blew and had butt-riding cagers behind me. I've gotten enough back wheel flats on my little Suzuki that I've had practice with recovering from that while moving. It isn't something I enjoy practicing...

I called the cops and reported the road debris. The officer who showed up was skeptical at 1st and thought I was wasting his time. When he returned from looking into it he was shocked by what he had found and cleaned up. It was a full 5 pounds of razor blades. He said he was glad I called and reported it because it would have likely caused a bad accident. I doubt he'll ever discover who dropped the blades but at least I sleep easier knowing nobody else had to experience a blowout there because of it.

I really hope my replacement tire shows up today!
