Central Susquehanna Valley Road Meet April 2018
« on: December 18, 2017, 11:21:56 PM »

I have narrowed down to 2 Saturdays in April 2018, we will meet for lunch at Hoss's Steak and Seahouse, a regional PA chain located on US 11\ 15 in Shamokin Dam at 11:00am and proceed with the tour, We will head south to Susquehanna Valley Mall and park our vehicles, I am planning on renting a mini van to help with car pooling. From there we will go to the current stub end of the 11/15 Selinsgrove By-Pass at the US 522 exit near the mall then head north along the proposed alignment of the expressway which will run west of the current US 11/15 alignment.

From there we will see construction in full swing of the northern section of the project which includes a new bridge over the west branch of the Susquehanna River. From there we will check out Shikallemy State Park which offers a great view of Northumberland, Sunbury and the surrounding country side including views of the expressway construction. If time permits we will then head north along I-180 to Williamsport and check out some sites there, some where highlighted in Jeff Kitsko's meet 6 years ago.

This should wrap up by 6pm if anyone wants to do a post meet dinner there are many options in the area, I plan on getting a Facebook event posted this weekend and will have a full more detailed itinerary posted here in the coming weeks.  :nod:

Wow! Not even 24 hours into this poll and so far 4/21 is winning! I will keep this open for another 2 months and will post an event page on Face book on Christmas Day  :)

Iíll reserve my vote since, at this point, either date would be just as good. I generally donít know if Iíll be slammed with completing a project until a few weeks ahead of time, but if I give business associates advance notice that Iím unavailable on a specific date, theyíll respect that. So whatever date works for everyone else is what Iíll plan on.

It sounds like you have everything pretty solidly planned out, but if thereís any on-the-ground scouting work youíd like me to help with between now and then, Iíd be happy to volunteer. I tend to visit Williamsport about every other month, and the L-shaped I-76 → US 15 route is only slightly longer than the 7-shaped I-476 → I-80.

I'm not going to vote at this stage of the planning, but I would expect that I'd be OK with either date. I want to try to make this one, as it would give me at least one route-clinching opportunity.

As things currently stand; either date works for me.  Missed out last time due to it snowing back home (Philly area).

Both dates work for me. Since I live in Chambersburg, my dad can drive me to and from the meet.

There's probably a low chance, but could this become a 2 day meet?

I'm not voting because I can make either date pretty easily.

Two day meets are very iffy for a lot of people, myself included, which is why they generally don't happen. I know I wouldn't make a second day.

Sorry this will not be a 2 day meet, especially if 4/28 wins out because the next day I will be set up at a toy show selling diecast cars, my other hobby

I voted 21st, because my mom's 70th birthday is on the 27th, so I'll be staying put in C-bus that weekend (28th).

Too early for me to commit, but either date works for me as of right now.

I'm a definite no for the 28th. Not voting though since I can't commit to being available on the 21st yet.

You'll probably get big turnout no matter when you hold this thing. Enough of us within a few hours and I plan to combine this with county clinching (still missing a few in central PA) and hiking. Could be my first meet where I also finish a state's counties, as it would be realistic to do a loop that gets the remaining 5.

Happy New Year everyone!  :bigass: Here is a URL link to PENNDOT's website on this construction-

http://www.csvt.com/

So far it's looking like Saturday April 21 will be the day unless something radically changes between now and the end of this month, February 1 I will post the facebook announcement with the date and yes it will still be Hoss's Steak and sea house on US 11/15 Shamokin Dam at 11am, both Steph and I will be hosting like we did in York 2 years ago. Construction is coming along well in the area as of last month and I am hoping the bridge deck will start taking shape by the time April comes around.

This one is very high on my list. As I said in the Louisiana thread, whether I can attend depends on how many days I can take off work, and I don't know that yet. I'll put my odds at 60%.

If it's April 21, I'll be there.  If it's April 28, I, unfortunately, cannot.

February is just about upon us, looks like 4/21 is going to be the winner, probably next week I will go ahead and create a facebook event for this but this thread will be the main event page here on AA roads.

Still 99% certain I'll be able to make this thing. Timing may be a little tight on the way down if I want to finish PA's counties, but I can always get those another time if work holds me back. Darn Cameron County...

Since Shreveport is out for me, I'm gonna try to make this one if possible. It's closer, and I could still accomplish a roadgeek goal (clinching US 522 in Pennsylvania).

I definitely want to make this meet as part of a trip to collect new counties in WV, PA, and NY, and also a clinch of current and possible future I-99.
