    Tri-State Get-together - July 12, 2014

    I can't be the only tri-stater who is jealous of the gatherings our west coast peers regularly enjoy. Now that summer is officially here, would anyone in New York/New Jersey/Connecticut be interested in meeting up somewhere for lunch and a scenic drive? To start the conversation, let me suggest Bear Mountain/Harriman State Park as a possible destination. It is relatively accessible from anywhere in the metro area and the scenery is spectacular.

    I have a lot of flexibility in my schedule, but weekends may be the way to go for many of you. Any interest? Thoughts?

    I'm in. Let's plan something. I can even host lunch as my house overlooks bear mountain and the Hudson. So the goat path(6/202) and old 9w both which run along the river are minutes from my front door

    A very gracious offer, Josh! That would address concerns about parking our cars in a restaurant lot unattended. Just a suggestion, but perhaps we could meet initially at the top of Perkins Memorial Drive (within Bear Mountain park), which for those who might not have been there before has spectacular views of the Hudson River, with Manhattan visible in the distance. Hopefully we can enlist a few others and make this happen!

    Bill,

    Coincidentally, a bunch of owners are getting together tonight for dinner on Long Island. Don't know where you are located, I'm sure we can squeeze you in if you are interested. If too short of a notice, I'm game for a tri-state meet. Dinner @ Coolfish Syosset @7:30

    Thanks for the invitation, David. My wife and I are up in Vermont playing golf, otherwise I would have enjoyed joining you. If we put something together, we'll be sure to include you. Hoping for some additional interest from the rest of the tri-state contigent- can't let the left-coasters have all the fun!

    How about I put together something either the weekend of the 12 or 19 of July. Who has a preference? It will probably be runs on the goat path, old 9w on storm king and bear mountain/ sterling forest with maybe lunch at a rib place on the Newburgh waterfront

    The 12th is good for me ( weather permitting) 19th is NG

  13. #13
    Either date works, but probably a slight preference for the 12th. Thanks for taking the lead on this!

    Who else is in. It looks like a slight preference for the 12 th. It would be great to have 5 or 6 cars.

    ok we have at least 4 cars so here is the presumptive plan. We meet at my house at 10 am (I am about 2 miles from Bear mountain, my house overlooks it and the Hudson river,I will pm everybody the address)From there we travel over to Bear mt. Perkins drive and go to the peak for pics. We will then take 9w north to old 218 along the river, a spectacular road which you can see a little piece of in my avatar. We head north a few miles to the Newburgh waterfront and have lunch on the river at Billy Joes ribhouse around 1130am. They have given my car club parking out front in the past so I will make arrangements. After lunch we take the Newburgh- Beacon bridge over the Hudson, come down 9D (includes a nice 1/4 mile tunnel to evalluate your exhaust note)and over to 301 to 9 to the Annsville circle allowing us to come back along the goat path ( another great road featured in a lot of car adds) to the Bear mountain bridge , back to my house for coffee and cake around 2pm. Spouses and significant others are welcome. This is all weather permitting of course.

    A great plan! I have done many of those roads on my motorcycle and can attest to the great scenery and fun factor. Looking forward to it. I hope some of the other local Z8 owners will jump in and join us.

    Sounds great, I'm in. Forwarded this thread to some other guys as well. Hopefully they can make it to. Would love to see at least 8 cars.

    Ok Andrew. Why don't we take off the question mark from the title and move this thread to events. It looks like we have a plan.

    Hi Josh,

    Just confirming we are still a go for Saturday. Current forecast is partly sunny, 82 degrees. With the good forecast, maybe we can entice a few more people to join in.

    Weather permitting we are a go. Might know of a Topaz/ cream that will join us. The restaurant will be torches ( just down from the rib place since they could not guarantee us parking) who is in who hasn't posted?

    What time and where do you want to do an initial rendezvous? Do you have an address that I can enter into the state-of-the-art Z8 GPS? The weather still looks good for Saturday.

    Get to my house about 10 to 1015. Go up the Palisades pkwy to the Bear mt. bridge circle. take 9W north one mile to the light, take a left on firefighters memorial drive, go 30 yards and at stop take a right up Canterbury rd. Go all the way to the top(it forks in a few places)to where it terminates at Owens farm rd. take the road up the drive directly to your left, (sign on the tree says Brewer and black bear ranch)go 30 yards and take the fork on the right BEFORE the pond. go 300 yards to the end to a grey house at the top of the mountain. POC 914 213 3501 see you there!

    210 Canterbury rd fort Montgomery NY. 10922. That may not come up on a GPS. You can use 180 and just use the directions at the end of Canterbury regarding Owens farm road and the forks to take going up the drive

    Perfect weather! I'm sorry some more tristate guys did not have the time. Still we had 4 cars, me ,boomster ,Lioz and Dkat. ( three silver/ red and one red/ red) we compared notes on the cars and ran on some fun roads. The lunch at torches on the water was nice .All in all a great day.

    Josh, many thanks to you and your lovely wife for hosting today's gathering. It was great to meet you, Larry, and Dave and share some car stories and drive some great scenic roads. Hopefully we can do it again soon, perhaps in the fall for a foliage run.
