Maybe I typed inthe wrong coordinates.
  I rechecked my GPS way point And I read
  N39deg 31min,30sec
  W075deg,48min 17 sec
   These should put you a the parking lot.

  The boat launch is just on the southside (Left turn) of the "T" intersection.  The parking lot is a 1/10th of mile north Right turn)of the intersection.
  Once you get across the Rt 213 bridge over the C&D canal, Make a first right turn then follow the signs to the C&D museum.  Instead of a left towards the entrance at the "T"  make a right turn.


  Chesapeake City is 50 miles from Essex via Route 40N to Route 213S
   If this ride interests you and would like to ride up there with me;contact me at   I can take two at this time.
   The ride starts at 9 am at the Bethel Road parking lot.
   Directions are with the ride date and description in the schedule.
   $5.00 to cross either bridge over the Susquehanna River.
   THE coordinates for the ride start are N39deg31.5min; W75deg3min
  The main ride is 25 miles with a lunch stop at Hacks Point General store at the 16-milepoint.
  There is a 34-mile cue sheet available.  This extra mileage splits the 25 mile and joins back up a the Hacks Point General Store.
    The reason for the early start on that day is because Chesapeake City has their St. Patties Day parade beginning at noon and we should be back in time to see all or some of it.

I thank Cindy, Mark & Ken for joining me me on today's ride. 
  By 10 am, the light dusting on the leaves and grass and disappeared.
  Although some meltwater at encroached or crossed the road at some places, the road were mostly dry.
  We rode 25 miles today.

   Thank you,

  I thank all those who came out for my ride today.
  Thank you, Isais, for riding with me.
  Since he was only rider to show, I changed the pace to a 10-12 casual 
and since we rode our bikes to the ride start, we included the mileage from and back to home.
  I logged thirty miles.  Isais logged more.
  Thank you again.

I checked out the road conditions for tomorrow's ride.
Parking is at the Eastern Regional Park as usual.
  What is not usual that the ride will be shortened as SR 43 bike path is not cleared.
  The road beyond the DunDee Marina down to the fishing area is not passable.  The rest of the roads are good.   There will be water on the roads at various places; we need to be careful as poass through the areas.  Will be a mid ride stop at Georges or Royal Farm Store.
  See you there at 9:30ish.  Ride begins at 10 am.

Main roads passable, but the side roads that make up most of the mileage are still ice and snow covered.  The big parking lot where we park is still covered with 25-30" of snow.
