BBXV Location:

La Vale is located at 39°39′17″N 78°48′46″W,[2] in the shadow of Haystack Mountain. To the east is Cumberland and the very scenic Narrows, a water gap between Haystack Mountain to the south and Wills Mountain to the north. To the west is Piney Mountain and Frostburg. La Vale is on the Old National Pike (US 40). La Vale is a business center that contains the largest concentration of retail and the only indoor shopping mall, Country Club Mall, in the Cumberland Metro area. This location will serve us well for the 2018 Bash as it is easy on/easy off from Interstate 68/US 40.

If you go to Google maps, check out all the services and restaurants along the strip aka ALT US 40.

The Maryland panhandle does offer some unique opportunities to take day rides into neighboring Pennsylvania and West Virginia. More on that later.

Thanks for setting up this years bash. Don't know if my schedule will work out for this year. TBD. Looks like it's a good area to ride. How close is a Dairy Queen?

Only 0.7 miles down the strip. A 15 minute walk or 2 minute ride. :D

Doc,
Huge thanks for setting this up. Sorry I was not any help. My inception into owning the company is taking all of my time and more. I will be there though. Making reservation tomorrow.

Doc,
Don’t forget The Poky Dot...home of the humungous banana split in Fairmont WV. It’s only about 80 miles away.

Less than two weeks out.........................time for Roll Call:

Who is coming, when do you arrive, and when do you depart?

REMINDER: Please be kind enough to bring some door prizes with you for Saturday evening.

Doc & Patty arrive Wednesday and depart Sunday.
