Revisiting Perry County

Rural Pennsylvania Ride

After doing a lot of work around the house yesterday and waiting for my new mobile phone to arrive I decided to head off for a ride to Perry County. I wanted to visit “The Pond”, which is land that has been in my family for a very long time.

I knew I would go north on route 15. But then I decided to stop and plug in “shortest route” to Ickesburg. It was basically the same route I usually take until shortly after New Bloomfield. My GPS found me a wonderful dirt road towards Mansville and a few other roads that I was not familiar with. It was a nice change from taking the “fastest route”.

Unfortunately on my way back I headed for a dirt road that I remembered from when I was growing up. To my surprise it had been paved! Damn. The search for dirt roads gets more difficult. Maybe I should look at trading the F 650 GS on a BMW R 1200 RT instead.
