Okay, I said I would post something to try to organize all the Passionites heading to Jim Thorpe for MBW so here you go.

Please indicate handle, name and campsite so we can get organized or at least cruise by and say hello. I'm suggesting that anyone who wants to do a group ride meet at site 4 at 10 am on Saturday.

Rev Bubba - Site 4 (Bob Veit) - I'm actually staying at the Inn at Jim Thorpe but I hang around with the parolees from Baltimore
TurboB!tch - Site 4 (Sandy Veit) See above. She keeps me honest
BikeBreath - Site 4 (Doug Hansen) He is a parolee. No one keeps him honest.

By the way, Site 4 belongs to BB and company, not me, so I hope they will not be offended by my using it as a meeting place but I couldn't think of another location.

Your turn........
REV

How is JT? I've dreamed of going but having a hard time getting away. Worth it?

Yes, definitely worth it but go with someone

Someone who knows the trails that is. There are plenty of trials, most pretty technical and many hard to find. Most maps are not that good from my experience. Figure one decent ride on one trail will run you 3 to 4 hours.

If you plan to ride an area called Coal Cracker take a compass. You will get lost. Everyone gets lost but if you head west at the end of the ride you will eventually find your way back to Mauch Chunk Park which is where most rides start or at least is the traditional base area. You can also start a ride from the town of Jim Thorpe itself but that will just include about 5 miles of rail trail. A very nice warm-up but not necessary.
