In the past, when we’ve done an S24O at a state park, it’s usually been early in the season, or during the week. So when I was considering riding out to Pinchot for either Friday or Saturday night, imagine my surprise to find that during the “peak” season, one must reserve for two consecutive nights over a weekend.
I understand the logic, however… Looking at the reservation map, there are a lot of sites not yet committed. I suppose it’s possible that they will fill up by Friday, but I wonder how many sites will go unused because people only want one night? (Like me).
The whole thing kind of settles where I’m going this weekend – off and up to Michaux on Saturday night. Riding 37 miles each way with a humongous climb at the end is a bit more than I was hoping for, but life is an adventure.
