Presidential note: This is drive number 37!

Join Walter for an all day, tri-state drive to Hawks Nest, Port Jervis, NY. The ride begins in Pennsylvania, travels North through New Jersey, crosses into New York State followed by a return trip over the Delaware River and back home into Pennsylvania.

On Sunday, October 10th we will be meeting at the Shell Station, 428 Nor Bath Boulevard, Northampton (old Kopper Penny) at 8:45 with at Driver’s meeting at 9:15 and Depart at 9:30.

Our first leg of travel is approximately an hour and forty minutes, and 57 miles, to the Acme Store in Blairstown, NJ for our rest stop.

Our second leg of travel is approximately an hour and thirty minutes, and 40 miles, to the Erie Hotel in Port Jervis for lunch (Note that the Erie Hotel offers only INDOOR dining).

After lunch (approximately 2:30) we will travel to the summit of Point Peter to the Elks-Brox Memorial Park to enjoy splendid views of Port Jervis, the Delaware River and the surrounding countryside. The road to the summit is Skyline Drive. It is a mini-hillclimb and contains two hairpin curves - one left and one right.

Our final leg of travel has us driving route 97 through the community of Hawks Nest and ultimately the curvy section of that road known as Hawks Nest drive. We continue North for twelve miles to enjoy magnificent views of the Delaware River, cross into Pennsylvania and navigate back home via a blend of Miata roads and Touring roads.

Don’t expect to return to the valley until 5:30 p.m. or so. However, if time is an issue for you, you can do a return run on Hawks Nest and pick up route 209 /route 6 at Port Jervis and head directly home.

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 8:45 a.m. with a full gas tank and an empty bladder 😏.

Jon, if interested, you can dial your radio to FM 96.1 and listen to the game on the Drive. You will be amazed at how far 96.1 reaches into New Jersey. I doubt we will even hear the "exclaims" coming from your Miata.
