Summer is generally better for me. The other three seasons, many of the weekends get busy.
Winter is less busy, now that we are past the holidays.
There’s a wine festival 6/23-24 at Split Rock Resort that sounds interesting. Maybe we could meet there?
That was my original thought.
Resort+wine festival? Hmmmm, very interesting....
I know! How far is that from you? I think we should do this meet up.
Split rock Lake harmony ? Aw man. I’ve got some amazing/horrible memories of that place. From a bachelor party wknd. the polar opposite of a wine festival.
I'm in CT, about 3 hours, or 174 miles.
Sounds good to me. Lets see what kind of interest this has.
2 hours 19 minutes, 137 miles for me. Varis, I'll get there first and drink all the wine and eat all of the good food...
It 147 miles for me, not bad.
you're kidding? I'll make sure my good 'old' friend @bkisel (no pun intended) gets there first to protect all the resources.....
He might resent you called him "old", he'll sick Sadie on you next time you see him...
Of course she would attack you with her tongue, she's quite the nice dog! Just don't let her get started digging in your yard...
I'm surprised it's within 10 miles of my trip. I was thinking your trip would have been much longer, nice!
Just under 4 hours for me depending what route I take. There's a golf course as well for those interested. Good choice Heather, it seemed to have sparked an interest. For the Harford folks perhaps we could have a mini meet up in the Spring.
I think I was there once about 20+ years ago. Did they used to have a paintball complex nearby?
From where I live now, depending on the route I take, it'd be a 2.5 - 3 hour trip. With that I could do a day trip even if wife were not interested in an overnight.
Bill, for unrelated reasons, I just drove that exact route recently. For my money, I would take the I-180 bypass from Williamsport down to I-80, as shown here: https://goo.gl/maps/Qy7a72HauNu
It depends on what kind of driving you like, obviously. I actually prefer smaller highways to 4-lane, limited access roads. But even I found the stretch of US15 from Williamsport to I-80 to be kinda annoying, confusing, and stop-and-go. Google says that my route will add 1 minute (!) to your trip.
Yea, don't forget the nice smell from the fly ash incinerator (just south of Williamsport after you come down the long hill)!
I drive 15 from Mansfield thru Williamsport to south of 80 maybe 4-6 times a year. It sucks. I'd do 180 even if it (Rt 15) didn't suck because I really enjoy driving new/different routes even if it cost my some time.
