    Default Vsalon Nomads ride V2 May 29 to June 1

    Vsalon Nomads ride V2 May 29 to June 1, 2020

    We had a blast last year riding the rocky ridges and Pine Groves of Michaux S.F. Scared a few rattlesnakes, told more than our fair share of lies and lived to tell about it.

    Location: Michaux SF, PA
    What: A gathering of the VSalon Nomads.
    Why: NATURE G-DAMNIT!!!

    Reservations for RV/Tent camping:
    Pine Grove Furnace SP, PA
    Camping at PINE GROVE FURNACE STATE PARK, PA

    Reserve any of these sites:
    Campground Details - PINE GROVE FURNACE STATE PARK, PA - Pennsylvania State Parks
    Sites 66 and 68 are electric sites.
    Sites 71, 72, and 74 are non-electric good for tents or to save a penny.
    These are not pet friendly however there are such avail. near where we are clustered.

    Report back with your reservations and please get on it so we have this buttoned up.

    *This is the second of many to come. VSNomad tattoos will be available onsite. BYO bic pen

    What that guy said.

    This is a no nonsense, self supported event. It's not like we eat our wounded yet I'd expect you to bring enough food/water and spares to survive 4 or 5 hrs. in the woods.

    The campgrounds are fantastic, no camp store or services nearby so bring what you need.

    Please say you are coming fo show. At a later date Director Sportiv Dan will send route files.

    Oh Goodie.

    As of now, I'll be there and commuting the mile from the cabin. Happy to contribute to hosting evening/brunch/lunch shenanigans if people are up for it.

    I have been riding up in Pine Grove for some years but the route that Dan came up with was one of my 2019 highlights - as was the company. Highly endorse.

    (And if people want to include an outing on the bouncy bike you know I'll volunteer for leading a ride. The Friday night warmup loop can be done as a killer MTB version that tracks it almost perfectly.)

    Nice work Sir Joe. We will certainly take advantage of your awesome local knowledge.

    I reserved my site and will be at the same place as last year.

    Rides will be posted plenty in advance. Routes should be very similar to last year with maybe a couple of minor tweaks and longer options if needed.

    Any mountain bikers should take JoB up on his offer. It's been a long time since I've dusted my mountain bike off, but I just might bring it along this year.

    I'm hoping we can talk Nick into returning with the sausages and peppers for the cookout.

    So, last year I committed and then pulled out at the last minute due to some issues at home. This year and marking the dates, but can't commit for a bit as I may be in NNJ over that weekend for Crawfish Fest.

    I just booked site #71 . Happy to share it with someone. Looks like they allow for parking an additional car. I'll either have a small tent or sleep in the back of my SUV...

    Sorry, AngryScientist - just saw this!. The plan right now is to saw off an inch off Too Tall's arms, torso, and legs, and then his bike will fit me perfectly :-)

    No worries Josh!

    What's the consensus on drop ins? I'll be camping nearby with my wife and 6yo son that weekend, but would love to join for a ride. I can sweeten the pot with a tasty offering of some sort if that makes a difference...

    Assuming the campground will be closed in May and June, is there a back-up date? August?

    The Nomad's ride is 8 weeks from today. My crystal ball says State Parks will be open by then, but social distancing will still be recommended. I am not cancelling my reservations just yet. Let's see where we are in a couple of weeks. Glad for any input from attendees.

    Do you think snakes are aware of social distancing protocol?
