A NEW ROUTE TO DIEFFENBACH'S POTATO CHIPS, NEAR WOMELDORF, PA  This drive will also incorporate a fundraiser benefiting Second Harvest Food Bank. Please see the thread concerning this on our main page under Chat "Food Drive" or the 10/28 post by Alison to this thread.

When -                   Saturday, October 31, 2020

                                  Drivers' Meeting: 10:00 a.m. (Note new time!)

                                  Depart:  10:15 a.m. 

Where -                 Cracker Barrel, Fogelsville

                                  7720 Main Street

                                  Fogelsville, PA Location

Event Leader -  Walter Cramer

As Horace Greeley once told a group of Miata enthusiasts,
“Go West, young drivers, Go West, and make sure
you stay off the four lanes”.
If you happen upon Dieffenbach’s Potato Chip factory,
stop and indulge

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 of travel also has us stopping at Redner’s on Route 183 for a rest stop on the trip back.  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).

This drive will be limited to 15 cars, including the leader, with priority given to paid LVMOC members.  If the 15-car limit is not met, we will open the drive to non-members.

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 .

Cracker Barrel is a very crowded parking lot, might I suggest either the Rite Aid or a little further north, the LVPG walk in clinic lot next to Weis (and Weis has a bathroom if anyone needs it before leaving).

@triviawayne

We find that there is usually enough room around the back to gather for a drive, Wayne.  That is, if there aren't too many truck rigs parked for the drivers lodging at Hawthorn Suites, next door.

For as many times as our Club has met at the rear of Cracker Barrel over the years, space has never been an issue.

By the way, Wayne, I am glad you are able to join us for the Drive. I have your prize from your Kojak response of a couple weeks ago.
