Gravel roads out there come with surprises. Like a ditch that you can't see because everything is the same shade of tan, and you slam the bump stops so hard you pull over to see if you bubbled a tire.

Nah. I'd be ok with them if it was just me, but if I'm leading a convoy I won't subject everyone else to that sort of abuse. The AWD system gives a lot of stability on those roads, I'd think an open diff or RWD car would have a hard time keeping it on the road at speed.
I'm just busting your chops :wasteful:

Alright, more info.

River Road from Holtwood to Columbia. Interesting twisty road that goes up and down through gulleys, loaded with ferns and moss etc. Road surface slippery and damp despite no rain, I think this is too much of a handful. It also goes through a lot of congested residential areas, so I don't think I'm overly comfortable driving like a loon on it. Honestly I found this road more annoying than fun. Also got stuck behind some saddlebaggers and dragster muscle car silverhairs.

So take Columbia out of the picture I guess.

So that means crossing at Rt 372. Could head north for fun or just go south to Conowingo. I think it will be about 1:30-1:45 to get to this point. Conowingo would take another 30 mins I think if we headed straight there. Or could stop for a stretch (there's a decent park to use for this) and continue north a hair and loop back down.

Up until that point the drive was fun, through farmlands and such. Mostly sweeping turns nothing too tight. Lots of amish and farms and some buggies. Noble Rd was freaking great. As was Rt 841 southbound near "The Whip" tavern.

Anyways. I think Creek Rd / Rt-100 / Rt-82 is more fun but this is different scenery with some pretty good roads thrown in.



You guys let me know what you'd rather do. ~3 hr "dam that was fun" drive. Or 1-2 hr "that was creek'n awesome."
Also, where is everyone coming from who wants to do this? That way I can pick a good start point or meet up. I'm thinking Exton / Coatesville area right now.

:popcorn: We can change the start point if needed. Alternative would be somewhere near Wilmington I think. I want to stay away from West Chester as a meet up point. I think start point should be adjusted based on who is coming, like if Teo comes up we could accommodate by starting more south. If you'd like to start somewhere else let me know...

Detailed map will be shared with people who are serious about going.

I love that gif so hard.

Also, might I suggest 2 way radios for communication during the drive.

Would get used once, maybe twice, and that's it. Horrible return on investment. I have no use for them other than something like this.

I'm good for a Saturday or Sunday. Not this weekend and probably not next. Anytime after should be good.

I've used mine for tons of things - trail rides, backroad runs, the dragon. Had 'em for 5+ years even. Solid return.
