Paul, when I put your address in google maps it said to get off garden state parkway at exit 123 to rte 9, but looking at a map it looks like i could take the garden state to exit 98, distance is 13 miles longer but it looks faster, what is your suggestion.
 
 
 
I put his address in mapquest and it gave the same directions . Only thing, not too sure if I want to take the 440 !! Never been on there and don't think this is a good time to experiment Confused . Just going to go over the Gothals Bridge to the tpke. and on to the Garden State. Better to be safe than to get there next week . Wink

I've gone down to exit 98, then take I-195 west to rt. 9 south, it quicker, all highway. The only problem may be volume on the GSP south with people going down the shore. Good luck, see you there.

Goethals works too. TPKE South to Exit 11. Then you can either stay on the Parkway or get onto 9 south...

the way dave m said to go would probably be the best way. even though it is longer it will be shorter time wise.  a lot of lights coming all the way down rt 9. traffic might not be that bad on the parkway either. take the way that is most comfortable for you as the most important thing is you get there. it will be great to meet some more members. see you all tomorrow.Thumbs Up

Back to REAL South Jersey after a great time with all, and a special thanks to Adam for a Medium TEE for Patricia to wear prancing around the house when the shades are drawn and the lights are low~~~

Paul, we had a great time.  Look forward to more fun events.  As you see, I also have a propensity for blue.....

Paul, Chris Ann & your entire family - THANKS FOR INVITING US IN !  The food was great - thank yous to everyone Clap
 
I have to admit...It felt a little unusual driving to someone's house for a BBQ that I only met once, to hang out with a group of people, most of whom I've only had brief (if any) contact with....But FRANK & I had a blast!  Couldn't have wanted to spend our Saturday with a nicer, more fun loving group! Thumbs Up   We can't wait for the next "event" we can schedule in.  Until the next time we get to see everyone - Safe Cruisin'!

Yes, thanks to Paul, Krisann, and their family for having us, making us feel so welcome and for all the amazing food and drink they supplied!  My son loves the bottle caps, by the way.

For those of you that left early, the grab-bag game was fun!

Paul, I hope you're enjoying your new window cleaning tool.  I hope that every time you use it, you'll be reminded of me and that I still have to do it the old fashioned way! Ouch

Thanks to all C3VR folk that came out in support of this wonderful C3VR "unofficial" event!  It really was a great time, and mostly what made it a great time is the folks that came out.  It truly amazes me every time I get together with the C3VR folks just how nice, friendly and un-cliquey everyone is!

Can't wait till the next LukesVette BBQ!

(Come on Mike, get those pictures up, bud!)

Clap Three CHEERS for the LUKESTER and the LADY LUKESTER. A GRAND time with extended family and great rides.  Good people, Good food and SUPER hosts.  THANKS to all who had a part. WE had a nice time. If you have not made plans to go to LAKE GEORGE, do it today.  The friendship of the C3 bunch is the BEST.  Time is running out for good rides and relaxing with common folks. Oct 3rd is the next planned event. See it on the FALL COLOR RUN thread. manchestershark2009-09-22 06:11:54
