There is no order for it to be run, just be careful not to be the last one.
At the start of the prologue we do a loop, cut thru the middle to find a Troop.
Now as you know we go many routes, there is a place where Mark had a bout, do not go in but look where he parked in a small stump you’ll find something to spark.
Keep reading before you make a choice to go find, riding reverse you’ll make better time. Out to the end o Johnsontown you’ll find a wreck, in the front seat you find some cans, drink it what the heck even if it’s bland.
A smart choice it maybe to knock this one out first, a trail under a road that rhythms with help.
Up to the school you can find another, a straight row of pines three trees from the farther.
Head to duez make a quick trip to the end of a steep long down, along the trail look on the ground.
Off to the end of the gravel mill road take the new option, but don’t be too quick, before the edge take a look.
Harmony Hill has a new part too, go to where Ben hid the Pabst Blue, It was in a stump where nobody jumped.
Three more to go then off to the end. Up at the top of the butt puck my friend .
And on the bridge which planks have un-wind smack in the middle you’ll find .
On a trail call clay-mark a new bridge was made, stop and look under for a final parade.
Off to the foundation of 1808 will be the last stop don’t be late.
We will gather to wallow, in the Wednesday traditions that pagans have followed.
Wisp thru the woods with little to care, for the ghosts of the hollow will have something to share.
The woods that we ride have a story to tell. For in these dark woods resides a gate to hell.
Welcome the demons and kind souls alike for this night we ride and enjoy the night.
Darkness may fall, but our spirits will not, we open the gate for the souls to be sought.
You may need a watch for time will track, and some rooms for small things to put on your back.
To start things off come early and have a seat and make sure to leave with a receipt.
The fun will begin on the old tracks at 6:30 sharp. So get there before and talk to Mark.
The clues will be few, but some in between for it is what we share on Halloween.

Anyway back to the Curse. So way back when, around the turn of the 20th century, the city built City Hall, which still remains as the world's tallest masonry building. There was a city "rule" that no building would be built higher. So as the modern age came, and skyscrapers were reaching new heights, Philly kept the buildings shorter than the top of City Hall, where a statue of William Penn was erected at a total of 546.975 ft..
So a long story short, in the 1980's the city decided it was time to join the other national metropolises and build some skyscrapers( Liberty One from 1984-1987). Since then Philly has not won any major league sport championship. Unless you count the Jon Bon Jovi's Arena football team the Soul in 2008. Having watched Mr Reids team folly for heart, I believe the Phillies have a lot. So here we go Phillies!

One related incident while riding the shoulder about a year or two ago. There was a truck carrying telephone poles. The pole stuck out from the back of the truck about 10-15 feet, at just about head height. The truck was on the shoulder maybe waiting for a crew. The were not any flares of construction signs. The truck was parked on a hill. Here I come grinding a hill with my head down, safely on the shoulder. About three feet before impact with my head and the circle end of a telephone pole, I looked up face to butt end of a pole. I swerved out just before impact, but that could have easily been the dumbest, most embarrassing, and quite possibly very damaging crash in my life. So keep your head up out there, that is unless you are playing golf.

After a mellow groove we zipped up and headed down. Flying down the loose powerline like trail Jamie bounced a rock off his shin Ouch! We hit the stop to drop the lights and grab some fuel for what would be 7 more hours of trail time. High line up Pisgah.The On 29r held its own. KTM switched it up to the Shifty niner and the two ewr boys plucking gears, left Big Ben and me the only One Speeders.
Some of the climbs hurt. Like going up the deep run hollow.
But it was followed by plenty of this....
