For those interested in coming out for Easter camping, and who are most likely a bunch of heathens, we'll be out there from Thursday, March 28 (not only is it Holy Thursday but it's also the day Three Mile Island had the meltdown!), leaving Sunday, March 31.

I'll have a grill for cooking over the campfire; planning on lamb and spuds with fresh rosemary on Saturday evening. There's a grocery store and *ahem* other kind of store for provisions less than a mile away.

I'll work on a ride for Saturday. It really is like being in south Jersey (my home) with all the cranberry bogs.

I'll post up which spot when we get out there on Thursday.

There are perks to working at a Catholic college...

I'd like to head out there for a night but as of now I couldn't say if I'll be able to for a variety of reasons.. Holiday camping and holiday riding is the best!

I think it's funny how our regular campers enjoy being out in the woods when the "typical" family is celebrating holidays in traditional ways. Sounds like you guys will be camping in style too. Right on.

Another bad day was April 26, 1986 - the Chernobyl nuclear power plant exploded, and, I got married.







Just kidding sweetie!

Holy Moly man! Hate to say it but damn your lucky. I followed Fukushimu every day for almost a year, it's amazing what people go through. I am not worldly and really have never been real far or through to much = good and bad I guess.

I plan on getting there around noon. Gonna take a roundabout way to Cape Cod Beer for a growler fill once I set up camp if anyone's interested.

Cheese & Lilolita, etc.. It looks like I'm going to head out to the campground for the night. Unless the bike has issues on the way I'll be out there before dark..
