2022 Philadelphia, PA National Road Meet (August 20-21, 2022)

<< < (2/36) > >>

A.J. Bertin:
I'm very interested!  Philadelphia is a city that I've pretty much never spent any time in.  For a while, I've been wanting to spend some time exploring it.  I'm going to try to attend this one.

What was the 2014 "national meet?" The only one I can remember being billed as such was one in the Pittsburgh area back around 2007.

Saint Louis.

I thought the New York/New Jersey meet that Steve hosted in 2014 was considered the "national meet" that year.

It was.

STL was "unintentional". 

That being said - do not let a meet being scheduled deter another meet being scheduled.  If we all waited - meets would not happen.  We'd be in Canada ("after you!" No, after you!")🍁

Radnor Trail
It is the former Right-of-way for the Philadelphia & Western Railway. It's significance to roadgeeks is that PennDOT, back in the 1960s & 70s, had proposed to use the abandoned railline as a road between I-476 & US 30. (there are maps of this proposal somewhere in this forum)

(It also passes by the house my mom grew up in)

Thank you for reminding me that I should check this out.  Probably whenever US 13 is signed in Chester along PA 291.
