PA/NJ/NY Meetup tour?

Hey, is anyone interested in a meetup of sorts in the MidAtlantic/Northeastern US? I haven't heard from anyone south of, say, Trenton, NJ, yet. How about a drive up through NJ, picking up more drivers along the way, up through the Westchester County, Tappan Zee area? That would give a nice scenic drive through some nice areas, and turn more than a few heads once we got above Route 78 or 80. I have a book "Weekending in New England" if anyone is interested in doing a weekend driving trip (my favorite kind).

Cool, thanks for poking your head in! I'll be away the 1st 2 weeks of June and the week of July 4th. Let's see what other interest we can drum up.

Sounds like a good reason to visit my Uncle in Brooklyn and my cousins in Statin Island... Statin? Staten? I forget... I just remember my cousin said the Dutch saw it, pointed at it and said "Is stat an island?"

The Nissan Murano... Love at first drive!
But this is what I drive these days... Does a 12.21 second 1/4 mile @117.7 mph.

Coming next spring... a 440 Hemi. That should kick some behind.

You'd be very welcome in our neck of the woods, Jaak. Hell I'll buy you a beer or three if you help me figure out my XM install! Still in my trunk after 3 months!

Not only stupid, but cheap and lazy too!

I'm in Hunterdon County just off I78. Depends on what actually shapes up. I'm not sure about a trip, but a day meet would be great.

Where's Doombringer? Haven't heard anything from him lately and I bet he'd join in.

Jaak, you serious?

Okay, 7 so far.. and with Doombringer in Flemington and msfiveiron off 78 in New Providence (and a personal friend), I expect it to go to 9. Did I count myself?? Hmm.. 10. Now we need some ideas on when and where to go. I assume most would be more interested in an afternoon meetup somewhere in a nice setting, like a Saturday daytrip.

If we meet somewhere like Westchester or Rockland County, I'm sure my wife would go for turning that into a weekend getaway somewhere like Cape Cod. But we wouldn't get in until laaaaate Saturday night.

I'm totally open for ideas, people. What would you like to do? Do any of you have ideas for parks or other settings we could target to meet at? A particular restaurant? Just to throw it out there.. there's the Tarrytown Diner on the Westchester side of the Tappan Zee directly across from the Tarrytown Hilton, with a nice big parking lot. Anyone want to host at their home with about 10 Muranos parked out front? I'm sure we could get some folks to come down from Connecticut to meet there. Stamford is, what, half an hour away?

Now, does this board have a group calendar? I'm away 5/29 to 6/14 and week of July 4th, but I'm pretty wide open otherwise.

Look at all of the interested parties!

Depending on the driving distance and the dates of the meet I should be able to join. I am coming up in the on call rotation at work so that may throw a loop in my plans, but for now, count me in please!

Am I serious? Yeah, but things are already scheduled this summer, so I don't know if it would work out. However, my wife's been telling me that she wants to visit NYC, and see my cousins as she's never been, so I'll watch what you guys figure out and then suggest a date to her at the same time.

(Evil chuckle...)

Can't say I can do it, but if I could, it would be really cool!

Hey Jaak! Were You In Myrtle Beach This Week??

I just got back from a golf trip in Myrtle Beach, and saw a Copper SL w/ Ontario Plates there, outside some small pizza joint on Rt. 17. I immediately thought of you. Did you drive down there?


I guess I should have looked for the SAT antenna!

Hey msfiveiron. I was in Myrtle Beach the week of April 19. Is that when you were there?
