I'll be arriving on Thursday and would love to meet other folks that are arriving on Thursday as well. Should be there by 5 pm. Call my room at the Christopher in or my cell 618-364-2528. I look forward to meeting all of you and having some great rides. Weather looks great.

Although I started this thread way back in February, health reasons have demanded that I do not attend. I have cancelled my reservation at the Inn.

I would like to remind folks that there are a lot of fun things to see in the Hocking Hills.
This is a very short list of stuff available:
Hocking Hills State Park
Rock House
Columbus Washboard(This is a really neat tour frequently done by the British owner who also teaches you to play a washboard)
Cedar Falls Trail and Hiking
Zipline and Aerial Adventure Parks
Cantwell Cliffs
Paul Johnson Pencil Museum
Lake Hope State Park
Hocking Hills Winery
Hocking Hills Moonshine
Logan Antique Mall
Lake Logan and the State Park
Hocking Hill Scenic Railway

I hope everyone has a wonderful time and takes in some sites in addition to just riding and kicking tires. Also M & M Family Diner in downtown Logan serves a great breakfast.

what time are you and wingcott meeting up with corkster in Toledo? I'm going to be at henry's from 06:30 until 10:30 and leave Dearborn at that time. maybe I could meet up with you guys and tag along too
Wingcott and I are meeting near I94 and US23 at about 8:30-9:00. We are meeting Corkster in Toledo about 10:30. Any chance you can make it by then? PM me for meeting places.
I can't leave Dearborn before 10:30, it would take me about an hour to make it here

Hi folks,

Now 5:30 pm on Thursday and I think I am the first to arrive here at the Christopher Inn. If you see this give me a shout. I am in room 407.

We'll be unable to attend this year and cancelled our Christopher Inn room.
Hope the Wingers have a great time. See you next year.

Heading for Ohio this morning. By the time I've traveled 125 miles what starts as a single will morph into a group of four leaving Toledo. Looking forward to a great weekend.

As one of the early purveyors of this gathering, I can not make it.
Lack of funds detains me. *IF* it were NEXT weekend... it wouldn't be an issue.

ENJOY ALL.
Many pix for us...

Lee Grimes and William Garrett are coming up from Cinn city with a naked Goldwing and Honda Nighthawk. Left the Aspencade at home. We'll be in Hocking Hills around noon. Would enjoy hooking up with any nearby.

Looks like a good ride for the group. We stayed in the Hocking Hills area, 374, 93, 664, 56, 180, and a few roads in between...

Great ride! Hope you all had a great time. Next time we'll try to communicate a bit better...

William
