When:     Saturday, October 8, 2022

                Arrive:                     8:45 a.m

                Driver's Meeting:     9:15 a.m.

                Depart:                    9:30 a.m.  See NOTE below.

 Where:   Macungie, PA - WEIS Market parking lot

                3440 Grandview Drive

                Macungie, PA    MAP

 

End:        Eight Oaks Farm Distillery & Kitchen, PA 309, New Tripoli

Event Leaders:  Dave Povenski, driver (a.k.a. the stig) & Michele Kane, navigator.

Limit of 20 people (4 people per table/booth) due to limited seating at Buddies Log Cabin.  Priority to paid members.  So in your RSVP mention if you will have a navigator or will be driving solo.

NOTE:  We will be leaving precisely @ 9:30.  Gas, restrooms and food are available at the WEIS and at the nearby Wawa and Turkey Hill.  Plan accordingly.  We want to get to Buddy's at a less busy time for brunch.

Because we use the facilities at Hawk Mountain for this drive, Polar Bear and occasionally others, I would appreciate each driver donating $5 to help them out with the wonderful work they do.  I will collect during the driver's meeting.  Thanks in advance!

 

Circle your wagons (or Miatas if you have no Conestogas lying around) for another edition of ...

WESTWARD HO!

THIS IS A RAIN OR SHINE EVENT.  ONLY HEAVY SNOW, A TORNADO WARNING, AN EARTHQUAKE (min. 6.0), A VOLCANIC ERUPTION or ARMAGEDDON WILL CANCEL.

WHAT Westward HO doesn't have:  Wagon trains and indigenous people shooting at us.

WHAT Westward HO does have:

Length:  167 miles. You may want to bring a snack and beverage.

Scenery:  Some good, some great, some so so and some coal crackin' ugly.

Ups & Downs:  This route has more ups and downs than a whack-a-mole game.  Over 29,434' worth!  We're talkin' Mt. Everest.

Entertaining Roads:  Part of PA 863 (including the corkscrew), Hawk Mountain, Lutz Valley, Ferebee/Flat Hill, Goldmine, PA125, Brockton Mountain/Moss Glen, and Gun Club (off of PA 309) to name a few of my favorites. 

StopsHawk Mountain (mi 30, for those who drank too much morning coffee), brunch at "Buddy's Log Cabin" for brunch (mi 59), Burger King (mi 103, to unload Buddy's coffee), and Leiby's Ice Cream House & Restaurant for ICE CREAM (mi 150), and finishing at Eight Oaks Farm Distillery & Kitchen (mi 167)

Buddy's is famous for it's extra crispy, instantly artery clogging, deep fried bacon BACON BACON BACON! and its "bet you can't eat more than one" pancakes (ask Alison).  Buddy's is worth the drive by itself!  And did I mention ICE CREAM!?

Needless to say, this is an all day drive.  Figure around 4:15 of driving time and around 7:00 total time including stops & food up to the 8 Oaks Distillery.

We hope you'll join us!

I already have highly sought after tickets for the R&N Iron Horse Ramble from Reading to Jim Thorpe and back that day,  but I'm thinking 10/15 might be my date for the Catawissa Leaf Rambler.
