For the LVMOC members who could not attend this year's Minis and Miatas drive, Walter will lead another tour over our beloved Lehigh Valley curves and twisties into the Pocono Region. We travel Route 534 through ten miles of Hickory Run State Park. After our rest stop, we continue to the Francis E. Walter Dam, where, looking South from the Dam head, one can view the beginning of the Lehigh Gorge State Park, which continues South into the Lehighton area eighteen miles away. We continue with a quaint drive around Lake Harmony at the Split Rock Lodge, in Luzerne County. We will be enjoying Lunch in the Saylorsburg / Snydersville area. Following lunch, we continue cruising South on "Mini Cooper and Miata" roads, traveling over Blue Mountain and enjoying Ice Cream at the Blue Mountain Drive-In, where the ride concludes.
NOTE: Please let Walter know if you will be staying for lunch!
Our first leg of travel has us driving 60 miles in approximately 2 hours. Our second leg of travel is 52 miles and traveling approximately 1 hour and 40 minutes. Our third and final leg of travel is 21 miles in length and approximately 45 minutes of travel time.
Following lunch, in the event one has had enough driving for one day, you have the opportunity of following Route 209 to Route 33 and travel the remainder of the trip home via four lane travel.
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 (or Philly Mini's event thread), stating 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.

I’d like to add my son Micah and his son Conner for the drive. This will be his second drive. Will have to get him to join the club!! Also lunch x2. Thanks
I have added Micah and Connor to the Drive. Unfortunately our Club rules state this is his last freebie. If he joins the Club this late in the season the cost is $15.00. If he is interested, just follow the links on the website to join our Club.
This same situation recently occurred with another individual. Check out Dave Sell's response in the Ray Price Cars and Coffee thread.
