Perhaps he thought the blade would slow the growth instead of lifting it up?

Also, I might need that triumph hack. Need, I tell you.
Yes, camping Saturday night. Any suggestions where? Let's make a plan.

I was looking at one of these today when I rode down to the Triumph dealer to pick up a water pump for my Tiger.

...something that Michelle would be comfortable on the back of. I am such a selfless and caring husband.

How about we ride to South Mountain State Park, where the Appalachian trailhead is. Camp there Saturday night. Sunday morning, we can wake up & eat breakfast in Frederick, then continue on to Gaithersburg to ride KTM's. Alternatively, I've camped in Catoctin State Park, north of Frederick. Great riding to get out there, but it can get a little chilly & crowded. Other than that, I"m open to suggestions. Maybe we can camp in Dynamick's backyard.

Any of these options work for me. South Mountain sounds fine. I'm unfamiliar with the roads in the area, it will all be new to me. I can make myself a meandering route to get myself to South Mountain State Park from Delaware. When and where should we meet up on Saturday?

I don't think there is camping at South Mountain.

Greenbrier or Cunningham Falls are the only ones near Frederick with showers, to my knowledge.

Of course it's fixed now.. But that's after the fact..
The birds and the bears got the rest

You can't be too sad about happy/fat birds and bears.

Not conventional camping - but there's an Appalachian trailhead here, so thru-hikers camp there sometimes, to my knowledge. No amenities, just plunk your tent down and camp. Catoctin near Thurmont also has showers, but a lot of these places are booked solid. There's a lot of surprisingly good routes to get into & out of that area, which is one reason I suggested it.

I also don't mind partying it up at Mick's; you could show up in Baltimore say around 4, we'll spend a couple hours straightening curves in northern Baltimore county before chowing down at McFaul's Ironhorse Tavern, located here. We'll hang around at Mick's afterward and then in the morning zip down to Gaithersburg to ride some KTM's.
