Sunday June 23 - Doane's Falls Royalston, MA and Quabbin Loop



Discovered Doane's Falls today while spending my 30th anniversary with my lovely bride. Very cool, shortish walk that lets you see 3 different falls.

Kickstands up at 10:00am from the Pride station right at exit 7 of the Mass Pike. That'll get us to the falls around 11:30, spend an hour at the falls then lunch at 1:00 at Herricks tavern in Athol, MA

After lunch we'll do upper Quabbin, coming down 32a with a stop at Janine's around 3:00 for an ice cream, at which point we can split up or you can follow us back to Ludlow. We'll be passing by the Pike in Palmer for anyone that wants to jump on there. Otherwise, back in Ludlow around 4:15-4:30.

Full, fun filled day.... who's in?

We decided on going to the balloon fest in Albuquerque, New Mexico instead. Booked our flights, and hotel this past weekend and surprised her with it this morning.

Something we've always read about and wanted to do.

New Mexico is one of our favorites, should be a great trip.
Can't make this Sunday either. Doane's falls is an amazing place.
Have fun & Happy Anniversary!

Next Thursday, I leave for 38 states, including Mass. I have family buried in the town under the Quabbin. But it will be close to July the 10 before we ride past on our way to visit an lifelong friend. As a kid, our family would make the trek to honor their roots. I'll simply have a decent shot of a great single malt whisky that evening to celebrate all my ancestors buried from Maine to Mass.

It is a beautiful area and I look forward to riding through. I'm actually staying at the Red Roof in South Deerfield that night, but we are on a mission from [email protected] on this trip. 30 days, 38 states, and my dear lifelong friend lives in Leverett.

Thanks for the memory. I'll miss the white mountain gathering as well next week, but the most upsetting is the Wescaleros are having a rally out here and I'll be back there! I'm not sure if it is bad timing on their part or mine. But blessed be all my Volusia and C50 friends.

Headed through The Lake George area on July 6th barring any breakdowns or issues at the border. Maureen lost her passport, so we are hopiing border patrol will let us back in with enhanced licenses. I have a great friend in Glen Falls, just south of you. But our visit there will be short. After all, this is a mission from.....well its a grand tour I always wanted to make and this is it.
