Event Leader -  Walter Cramer

Presidential note: HOLD YOUR EARS, BECAUSE I AM DROPPING THE MIC! THIS IS THE 40TH DRIVE OF THE YEAR!!!!!!!!!!   BOOM!!!!

Join Walter for a Fall morning of driving westward over Lehigh and Berks County roads south of routes 22 and 78.  Our westward destination is the Dieffenbach’s Potato Chip factory. The locals claim these potato chips to be the Best Ever, and the devotees among us can replenish their home stocks with the tasty 'taters!  Although the drive to Dieffenbach’s is a bit over two hours, I have a rest stop planned at Redner’s on Route 183, one hour and forty minutes into the drive.

Our return route has us stopping at Sheetz, on Route 61, for a rest stop.  As we turn onto Route 737 North, we finally get to travel on roadways north of routes 22 and 78.  The length of travel is 95 miles and approximately 4 1/2 hours.

We will have lunch with out-door dining at Hops Fogelsville Hotel.

Be sure to let Walter know if you wish to go to the restaurant!

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.  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 ~9:45 a.m. with a full gas tank and an empty bladder.

NOTE: To ensure that this popular drive runs smoothly, we plan to divide the cars into two groups.

Attending:

  1. Walter & Nancy (Hops x 2)
  2. Louie & Corrina Hops
  3. Fred & Marie (No lunch)
  4. Ralph, maybe Becky

Jeff, how cool would it be for the members of this Club, who have been watching Haley grow up in your Miata, see her get her driver's license and then own a Miata - the one that Uncle Jeff used to own and let her work the FRS radio. 

That would be a JOY!

@rhetlaw Yes, that would be cool to see.  I would love to see her either in mine or own of her own when the time comes.

It might help you justify buying an NE...for you, while you hand down you ND

I think that is best too. Nothing says you love someone,  like handing over the car that built so many memories!
