The Great Allegheny Passage–the GAP

We are in the final packing stages –the Serpico clan is off to Maine, and twobikes will be headed for Confluence Pa to set up a central campsite for day rides on the GAP.  Pre Airstream we would have ridden this 150 mile trail end to end (and then wondered how to get back.)  We still think that method of touring is a little more adventuresome (read unpredictable -- full of uncertainties about food, lodging and weather ) but this trip we are emulating our heroes, Tom and Carole, who have perfected this type of RV supported bike touring.  Reports will follow, but as a warm-up, take a look at these videos.
Beautiful introduction to the GAP
a little history of the Gap
