Event Leader -  Walter Cramer

Join Walter for a 90 - plus mile drive on Northampton and Bucks County roadways. Some of the roads are familiar oldies and others are new additions. We will gather at the Dairy Queen parking lot adjacent to the WAWA, on South 25th Street, Easton. The WAWA provides us a place to fuel up, offers us a rest stop area and an opportunity to purchase a breakfast sandwich.

Our first leg of travel is approximately an hour and forty-five minutes in length and has us driving roads in the Morgan Hill region followed by roads in the Lower Saucon area arriving at the Giant Food Store in Hellertown for a rest stop.

Our second leg of traveling is approximately an hour and forty minute drive and has us leaving Hellertown and heading South into the Bucks County region. We then head North to end our Drive at the Copperhead Grille on route 378, in Center Valley, for lunch. The Copperhead offers both indoor and outdoor dining. 

This event will follow the current Pennsylvania rules for COVID-19 safety.  To avoid common handling of materials, we will email the directions to participants, for home printing, and we will eliminate the usual paper sign-in sheet.  Since the sign-in confirms your agreement with LVMOC’s standard Waiver and Release, we will now consider your post to this event thread, indicating that you intend to participate, to be your “electronic” signature, indicating your agreement with said Waiver and Release (copy available on request).

We will use FRS radios for communications.  Be sure to arrive by 9:00 a.m. with a full gas tank and an empty bladder 😏.

  1. Walter & Nancy
  2. Doug
  3. Celia and Warren
  4. Louie and Corrina 
  5. Emma and Denny (will meet group at Hellertown Giant)

Thank you Louie and Dave for those kind words. Nice job on wearing those tires in Louie. Dave, so happy you had a great experience for your first event. The good news is, no matter who is leading the Drive in our Club, we have a fun time together.

Thanks to my Middle, Celia and Warren; my Tail, Annette and Jim; and to my #12, Doug. And to everyone else who got on your FRS and passed information forward. It was very helpful to me in providing a smooth flow on the Drive.

Looking forward to our next Drive together.

Walter

What a beautiful day for a drive on some lovely Miata roads!  Haley and I had a blast today and at one point on the second leg, she commented that there were a lot of fun, sharp turns.  Those are her favorite. 😀

Thanks, Jeff, and what a compliment from niece, Haley. What a sweetheart of a niece.

Thanks, Walter, for a really nice drive 👍.  You conjured up some perfect weather and sniffed out great roads, as usual!

We enjoyed meeting Matt, our newest member, and Dave, a guest on this drive (another NJ resident... that number is growing!).

And we managed to lose only one car during the drive... that of our President 😆!

Thank You, Dave. 

So happy you mentioned our President's mishap and all because his FRS radio's battery ran out of juice. Louie was certainly a good sport with all the ribbing he was getting.

Goes to show the importance of FRS communication.

I know Louie typically loads the Driving routes onto his GPS. Not sure if he was using it yesterday.

And in all fairness, as I mapped out the route in Base Camp, when I clicked to make an acute left turn onto route 412 and a right at the Traffic Light into the Giant Food Store parking lot, the mapping software took me North on route 412 and rerouted me back to the Giant. 

As a result, I stopped the GPS route at the Stop Sign at route 412 and gave verbal instructions for the subsequent turns.
