June Sojourn along the Great Allegheny Passage (GAP)

Paul Ericson, Lee Rabideau, Rick and Marily Ludwick are undertaking a three day trip along the GAP from Cumberland to Pittsburgh, overnighting in Rockwood and Connellsville.  They are looking for others to join them.  They are leaving Cumberland on Monday, June 4, 2018 and will return to Cumberland, via an arranged shuttle, on the afternoon the June 6, 2018.  Contact Paul Ericson at paul.ericson@gmail.com if you are interested in joining this trip.  You would be expected to book your own accommodations, but Paul will arrange for you to join with them on the shuttle form Pittsburgh to Cumberland.  It’s a great ride!
