Hi all, looking to put together some trail riding later in October. Most likely around the Kane & Westline PA area. Maybe kind of like our own Fall Colors Tour right here in our own back yard. Any local flatties out there interested in something like that, let me know.

Hi, Just saw your post. I’m in the Harrisburg area and would be interested in doing a ride sometime during the last two weeks of the month.

That time frame is kind of what I was thinking. Doing Ohio’s fall colors tour this weekend and will start figuring that one out when I get back. Have you been up around Kane before?

Actually, no definite dates yet but planning towards the end of October. If you are gone till November I would be game to do it again then (around the weather of course). I’m headed south this weekend (10/16) for the Ohio fall tour and figured on setting some dates up when I get back. I’m retired so I can go any time during the week so let me know if that doesn’t work for you and we’ll work a time that’s best for everyone.

thanks for the reply. yeah, we'll have to see how the weather acts. according to the map I'm about 2.5 hrs from Kane. I'm retired too.

Cool. I was thinking about trying to get over there next week (depending on weather). Is 2-3 days notice enough for you?

Just talked to the Westline Inn and they’re pretty open at the end of next week into the weekend. I’m thinking about going over (based on the weather of course) in the Thursday/Friday time frame to run some of the roads and trails around Westline. I’ve tried a couple hotels in Kane but can’t seem to verify that they’re open. The weather, at this point, looks okay at the end of next week.

I'll be back in wny Monday or Tuesday. you mention the westline, that may be a good idea to stay over night in order to hit the trails first thing in the am. I've done the Bradford jamboree 6 or 7 times and it use to take about 2.5 hrs to get there, I'm flat towing.

The weather forecast keeps changing. It looks better now than it has up to now but it will be a bit on the cool side. I’m going to keep watching i and decide midweek.

I’m glad you asked, I was thinking about the weekend but it looks now like it will be a little bit more comfortable (temperatures) from Sunday on. That looks better to me, what do you think? I’m flexible and would really like to get out again.

I could do sat. then mon., tues. or wed. You mentioned that westline. I'm thinking coming down previous night, maybe we could have dinner or some beers and talk jeeps, then hit the trails in the morning

So weather looks good Sunday through Wednesday. I’m thinking about heading over Sunday and running trails Monday, Tuesday and maybe Wednesday, the only downer is that the Westline Inn, which would be the best place to stage out of, is closed Monday & Tuesday, so next next best option is the Spoonwood Inn in Kane. It’s on the east side of town heading out on route 6 as I recall and from there we could either drive into Westline in our Jeeps or trailer in, there are lots of dirt roads leading that way.
Let me know what you think about that agenda and we’ll go from there.

I think I'll leave real early Monday, like 6am. turns out I have something going on Tuesday evening so I probably get out of there by noonish on Tuesday. How can I get ahold of you. can you private message on this site and maybe swap cell phone #s? I'm hoping mine will work down there anyway. Like I said I'm hoping to get there by 9am and stay Monday night.
