    If you want to read a very good book, especially from a non-author by training, read Neil's book:

    Ghost Rider

    It's about his bicycle trip across western Africa. Seems like Neil is quite the traveler, mostly by motorcycle but the book is about a bike trip...

    Allaire Studios, also known as Glen Tonche (many additional photos on that webpage), was built as a residence for the Pitcairn family at the 1860' level of the 2020' Tonshi Mountain. It seems every musician under the sun has recorded there. The estate at the top of the mountain is privately owned. There is also an observation tower at the summit which is part of the private estate. Both the studios and the tower are visible from the Ashokan Reservoir and other vantage points. Pitcairn Road winds up the southern slopes of the mountain and is more legible on this map. Another photo album of the studio is here.

    Neil Peart is the drummer for the progressive rock band Rush. He's also the genius behind much of their material.

    He replaced John Rutsey as the drummer early in Rush's career.

    I actually didn't have the slightest idea who he was, I'm glad someone asked.
    Now I know he is a drummer for some band I never heard of...
    Oh, well...Im trying....

    I guess 2020ft would be below even the CAT200?

    Looks like Samuel's Point isn't too far from Tonshi... I'll have to look for the tower next time I'm there.. Amazing the things you discover so close to places you've been but would have no idea they are there unless shown...

    Picairn road seems like a nice bike climb! You can see Pitcairn road via Google Maps too:
