Bethlehem, PA Location
Event Leaders - Louie Draxler and Walter Cramer
PLEASE NOTE: UPDATE!!! THERE IS ONE COMFORT STOP 20 MILES INTO THE 70 TRIP. After our ice cream, you can either wave goodbye, or head back into the Valley with Corrina and I. If so, we will be heading back on a 29 mile drive that ends at LCCC in Schnecksville, on Rte 309. 4 miles south on 309 is the 22/78 interchange.
We did our final pre-run today. I really think this drive will be spectacular with the colors of Autumn. I will be leading this drive again, on October 10th and 11th.
We will be leaving Wawa and going over the mountain, hooking up with Vera Cruz Road and moving on some roads less traveled. I have tried to incorporate a lot of roads that often get overlooked because we tend to use certain roads in this area for good reason. They are good roads. But the Brit in me looks longingly at those B Roads, this time saying, "Right! Let's have a go, then!"
Last time I was at Longacre's, during Covid, they did have the bathroom open inside for guests. Masks must be worn to order inside or out, and to use the potty. There is a gas station a few blocks up the road for fuel and facilities.
This event will follow the current Pennsylvania rules for COVID-19 safety. We will require that all participants maintain six-foot social distancing, and we will require masks to be worn when not in our cars (or stuffing our faces with ice cream). 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).
This drive will be NO LONGER BE limited to 11 cars, including the leader, with priority given to paid LVMOC members. WE HAVE TWO LEADERS, AND THEREFORE, TWO GROUPS. We will have up to 22 cars for this event.
We will use FRS radios for communications. Be sure to arrive by 9:0 a.m. with a full gas tank and an empty bladder. Or, with enough time to fill your tank, and empty your bladder.

I'll join in this one.
So we leave at 920, and arrive at Longacre at 1120. Is there a return drive as I suspect nobody here lives near Barto?
Sign me up!
