In one of my recent post complaining about the bad weather, I mentioned taking a ride to Bear Mountain NY. Stevep316 suggested that a group of us get together and go. I think that's a great idea  So here are some details:

It's every Wednesday, but we should try to be there no later than 6 PM. Otherwise we may not get in. I heard that around 800 cars can show up  My only problem is that I won't be available until the 12th of July. I won't even be able to check my e-mail until the 10th to check the status of our ride. Anyway here is the information and a link to help you out

The Bear Mountain State Park is at the north end of the Palisades Parkway. If you want to do a map search the zip is 10911.

The rules for this season are no cars over 1986. If your car is newer you can become an associate member of the club and will be exempt from that rule, the $2 State parking fee and get one ticket to our summer barbeque.

The cruise starts at 6pm but people start arriving after 4pm as the field is close to full (800 cars) by 7pm.

For pictures of this cruise you can visit my Photosite at

http://www.popyourhood.photosite.com/

then chose an album then click on “view slideshow” for FULL screen photos.

I hope this answers your questions. Feel free to call me if you need anything further.

Take care,

Bryan

The 26th isn't a good one for me, but the 12th is (I'll be coming back from Atlanta) Myself and a couple of friends plan to leave around 4 PM we're all taking off of work earlier. I figured rather than run up 9W and hit the GW bridge traffic, we should go up the NY thruway and cut across. That should be a nice ride.

I might be able to make it also. Went a few times last year, I went up 287 and got on the Palisades Interstate Parkway north in Nyack area.

I'm sure we can work out a good meeting place. Warbird, do you remember me, we meet at the BBQ at Paul's.

Sorry, it's a 5 hour drive and not good for us in a one day event.   Maybe another event that is closer.   Have fun.

Too bad you & the Mrs. can't make it. I'm sure you're tuckered out from PF, besides at the rate we're we're going with all the friggin rain I might as well bought a boat. I actually cut my vacation because of the weather  Lets see if the weather gets better for the Bear Mountain ride.

does everyone agree on the meetup place i suggested? its perfect, as it is just before the thruway. perhaps all going should give cell #'s via pm to confirm so were all on the same page

looking forward to meeting some fellow c3vr members!

[QUOTE=warbird]Steve, the meeting place sounds good to me, I just hope it stops raining [/QUOTE]


its gotta be ok by the 12Th- i mean it cant rain all the freaking time! (can it?)

i hope my exhaust system holds up. i was driving around last weekend wondering why all of a sudden the car sound much better and had a little more power, and i discover theres a hole the size of my fist in the muffler, not to mention the rear y-pipe is trashed from years of abuse! im not to upset, since im planning to ditch the entire system for a true dual anyway

lets not forget that scary looking puddle of red fluid coming from underneath somewhere! (i hope its just the tranny cooling line)

or the strange creaking sound coming from the rear when i come to a stop at a traffic light.

whats a corvette without a long repair to-do list?

I'm confused, who is leaving from Dover, Steve or Warbird?

By the way Cookie, the apt. complex is Oakwood Village. When did you live here? I've been here since '84, but was always around here in the '70's before I got married since my brother lived here. He Managed a few bars in the area, The City Desk, The Bartley House, both were on 206.

Yup, oakwood Village it is. I lived thereabout 19 years ago when they newly built the apartments at the entrance. As a matter of fact, I was the first to move in out of all the new apartments. I only lived there for one year, then I went back home to my wife  

I'm leaving from Roseland (Exit 5 I-280) which is east of you.

Steve & Dave, it looks like it's just us, unless you guys want to wait a couple of weeks to see if our group increases. I'm leaving Tuesday on a business trip and will be back on Weds before noon. I can give me my cell # as well as my office # (I call in 4 times a day when possible) If we're still on send me a PM for my cell.

Steve, I posted some specifics on the radio on the original posting.
