Does anyone wanna try and hook up and ride in to Strange Days together? I'll be leaving Knoxville around 5:00 am, taking 40 East to I-81N and Ill run it most of the way north, then hook into the I-78. If anyone wants to hook up I'll be more than happy to. Ill be stopping every 100-120 miles for fuel and a smoke, with plans on being at Strange Days early Friday evening 6-700 pm.

Thats the Paxtonia, PA exit right? I'm gonna shoot for 9.5-10 hours which will mean between 230 and 300 pm. If thats not gonna work, I can leave earlier or later to hit it when your avaliable. Ive honestly thought about leaving at 330 or 400 am instead of 500 am which would move my timeline an hour or 1.5 hours.

Yeah, I'm trying to get these conversations running now, not scrambling to figure out routes and stops Thursday night before I leave.

I maybe interested in that.. but I'm 2.5 hours south of you.. I get about 140 miles to a take before I switch to reserve... but if I have my new tank done by then I'm estimating about 225 to a tank. I would probably come up Thursday. Is there anyplace to pop a tent over night? I'll try to confirm by the end of the week.

Looks like you have a riding partner. Cant get a straight answer out of the other guy on when the hunt is..so screw it. I would rather ride anyways. Let me know what the wife says about a room for the night.. If I was to buy the pizza for dinner that night how many would we need to order for so I know how much extra cash I need to bring. hopefully I will have all my little project done on the bike.

I was looking for a crew to ride up with but I think my plans changed. I'm 99% on making it now but I'll be coming up early to house sit.

Would be cool to ride up with a pack if that changes back though. I'll be coming either through St. Louis or up from TN depending on how I run my other road trip.

You two can meet up in Knoxville or in Lexington...Im guessin Spots is gonna take I-81 for awhile....up to you guys... I got a party to plan, lol....

If yer takin the southern route, ya wanna hook up with 287 north in Jersey, to 23 to 94 north (or take the scenic route by me and go the skyline drive exit off 287)...comin more from the west...hook to I-84 Scranton, PA, to NY Orange county Rt 1 to 94 south (turns into Jersey 515/94)....

Just search "Rickey Farm, Vernon, NJ"....its on 94 just 5 mins south of the NY border....

If you can get to Tenn by Thursday evening July 10th, I can give you a good meal and a couch to crash on, then we can pull out Friday around 5:00 am. My wife would be a lot happier if I rode up with somebody else rather than pulling the trip solo. Especially if fixinit is in also, which I think he is. That would be 3 of us leaving here, plus we would hook up with goofin in route. Maybe we can get a few more and show up with a pack that's 8 or 10 strong.
