Cackalacky is rapidly becoming as poxied up as Maryland in this regard. I, too, had multiple problems getting all my stuff sorted in MD. However, I've discovered a trick - go in there about ten minutes before they have to stop taking people. They will suddenly become efficient if you appear ready to spend the night there, but it's quitting time for them.

Proposal;

Go see flat track racing in Delta, PA on 3/29. Afterwards, go camping somewhere along the Susquehanna, either in South PA or northern MD.

Any ins?

That's short track, yes flat track but slightly different.

Next you'll need to attend a proper half mile. Then for the finale you'll need to check out a mile track.

IMO The Mile is where it's at. No $$ or time for this the 29th but I'll be up for Hagerstown and Springfield at this point.

Its not Baltimore, but what Baltimorean doesn't love Ocean City:


I took this shot on Wednesday at the end of a 1,100 mile ride from Daytona Florida up the coast to Maryland.

I gotta talk to SWMBO to see if it's ok to get away for some camping (she's been bugging me about wanting to go camping for a while), but I might be an in.

Should have asked before making a decision, but would this be motorcycle camping?

I had major problems in the outer banks, thanks to the big storm that came through last week.

The wind was blowing 35 mph, with 50 mph gusts... so that made it pretty hard to ride in areas with no wind protection. I got blown all the way across the road a few times.

Taking the ferry boat from Ocracoke to Hatteras was an adventure too. It was so rough, that we had to sit on our bikes and hold them up for the entire 1 hour crossing. The wind and waves got worse as the crossing progressed and the ferry was taking waves over the bow by the end. Both me and the bikes were completely drenched in salt water by the time we got off.

We were planning to make it all the way through the OBX in 1 day... but the dunes blew out just above Hatteras and rt 12 was covered in sand and flooded, so they closed the road and we had to spend the night there. (It was the skinny par tof the island where rt 12 is the only way up)

Overall, it was a good time.

PS:
I'm looking for some new riding buddies near Bmore. I recently lost both my local riding buddies, one moved to Tennessee because of work and one sold his bike to fund going back to school. I'm 27, live downtown, am a scientist, and mostly have time to ride on weekends. I currently have my dr650 downtown and all my other bikes in storage but I rotate them occasionally so later in the season I might be riding an xs650, xt500, or Superglide.

My riding 'goal' for this season is to check out all of the dirt / gravel roads in York county and around the Susquehanna river. I'm down for all street riding too though.

I kinda feel like this is a dating website ad... and its making me feel gross. I'm basically just looking for cool people to ride with around Bmore.

Well, I don't know about 'cool' but we're all pretty good looking. Except for Dynamick. He grew that beard for a *reason*.

I don't do much dirt, but we're gonna start up doing road rides once a month again soon. Check the 'escape from baltimore' link in my sigfile. The basic idea is, we all ditch out of work early the first Monday of every month. We meet up on the north side of town at 4, ride for a couple hours, eat dinner somewhere, and then ride back. You're more than welcome to come with us. We like to go to other groups' areas to visit. Eastern PA, Delware, SoMD...all within easy reach.

If you want dirt, I think there's a group that does dirt roads & logging roads up at Michaux state forest on...thursdays? I've thought of taking my SV up there but i'm a big pussbag. There's also a couple different groups around that do dirt.

[i]edit[/] SwellsRides & Dynamick both have dirtbikes. We might have enough Baltimorons finally to get our own dirtbike group going.
