POLAR BEAR 2022

                                     Arrive:                    10:00 a.m. 

                                     Drivers' Meeting:  10:15 a.m.

                                     Depart:                   10:30 a.m.

                              Louie & Corrina Draxler (484-788-3810)

Join the gang for our annual top-down celebration of the new year!  This will be a clean-roads-only event.  We will meet in the Weis Market parking lot, near their Gas & Go facility, off PA Route 100 in Fogelsville, PA.  The route will take us along fun roads in Berks, Schuylkill and Lehigh Counties.  There will be a "comfort break" at about 1 1/2 hours into the drive.

Due to the recent surge in COVID infections, there will be no dining arrangement following the drive.  There is a Cracker Barrel adjacent to the drive's ending point, and the Starlight Diner is nearby, on Route 100, just south of the I-78 intersection, if you wish to head there on your own.

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 consider your post to this 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 are limiting the number of cars on this drive to 30, and we will be leading two groups of cars, to ensure a safe, enjoyable drive with minimal waits for regrouping, and we are giving participation priority to paid LVMOC members.  We will use FRS radios for communication.  Be sure to arrive at the departure point with a full gas tank and an empty bladder!

Thanks for all the compliments, folks 😌!  I put a lot of time into developing the route for this drive during the past several years.  Early on, I studied topographic maps, seeking out interesting-looking terrain and roads that pass through it.  I have since "borrowed" some roads that Walter found for his drives through the same region.  It's been fun going out and driving the roads, checking for their suitability (yes, some turned out to be dirt, etc.).  Glad you enjoyed it!

BTW, for those who are counting, this drive was attended by 33 people in 23 cars.  Thanks to all who came out and joined us!

@stormnd2club Dave does the Un-Polar Bear Run too. This will be great this summer!

Excellent. It was 8 degrees here this morning 🙁 And snow, ice and rain coming in about 24-36 hours.

Sigh.

One good thing about living in a climate that has real winters, I think, is that we appreciate the spring and summer more.
