This is a follow-up to the post before about the pre-Carlisle drive. <p>After looking at some options with several people, I think we've settled on a route. <A HREF="http://www.motorcycleroads.com/routes/NorthEast/PA/PA_7.shtml" TARGET="_blank">http://www.motorcycleroads.com...shtml</A> is what we think will work best. Plan is to meet at ~10:00 am Saturday, April 18th in Murray, PA exact location in that town TBD. We can head off around 10:30 or so to Shamokin and do the Gold Mine Road, stopping for pics where it seems like a good idea. When we hit Shamokin we'll head to Pottsville (home of Yuengling) which is about 25 miles away. I am checking into details about the group tours they give currently. One important detail...on the tour at least all ages are welcome. Following the tour, we can sample beer and then go have some and some food too because I am sure we'll be hungry by that point.<p>If, especially for the NJ folks, doing the tour of the Brewery and the drive would be too much, then just join us for Yuengling. We should arrive in Pottsville around 12. We can do the last tour which starts at 1.<p>Pm me with any questions.<br> <br>So...who's in?<p>*********Update:<p>22 Old Forge Road, Jonestown, PA 17038<br>^^This is the place where we are meeting tomorrow. Again, the time is 10:00 AM. We'll head out around 10:30 AM. See you there!<p><br><i>Modified by fasts60r at 4:22 PM 3-27-2009</i><BR><BR>

Sounds good. I'll give my def. answer later on. <p>I've done the brewery tour twice, and it's been the best tour I've been on so far. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

Oh, I see how it is. They guys down here in MD try and put one together to include PA and beer and its a no go. But you invite the guys from NJ? What gives, now my feelings are hurt! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/tongue.gif" BORDER="0">
