Time for the 3rd Semi-Annual Northeast Mountain Run – May 20th, 2007

IT’S THAT TIME AGAIN!!

For those of you who went on this trip last year, know how good of a turn out it was and the awesome roads we traveled. This year’s trip will follow a route nearly identical to the first two times we have run the event, with a slight change during the beginning of the trip.

If you have ever dreamed of cruising on that one street, with all the curves and elevation changes you could ever imagine, but never got the chance, here is your chance. Specifically the last sector of "The Run", which is as close to a roller coaster in a car as you can get. All sections leading up to the finale are just a tease, but will certainly get your senses going anyway. S turns, tight winding 180s, it has it all. And Cows, lots of Cows.

“The Run” will depart from the Basketball Hall of Fame, just off Exit 6 on I-91. We will then travel a on the highway a bit before coming to the beginning of the twisties. Once we arrive there (about 15-20 minutes after “The Run” begins), it is all hills and curves for the next hour and a half. If you have never had your Z on roads it was built for, now is your chance. “The Run” will be complete at Stratton Mountain. Here we will have a huge parking lot for Z enthusiasts to talk about their rides, take pictures, etc. Also at Stratton is a few restaurants you can have lunch at before departing for home. The route home provides easy access to I-91 south.

More information regarding routes etc. will be provided as the event nears. We will depart Springfield@ 8 AM promptly. We want to go early to avoid traffic holding us up anywhere along The Run.

If you would like an address to reference where the run begins, you can MapQuest (link) or Google Earth the following:

1000 West Columbus Ave
Springfield, MA 01105

Any questions, feel free to PM me or send me a message via AIM. Email also accepted ([email protected]).

UPDATED:

Meeting place: Basketball Hall of Fame parking lot across from Max's Tavern (north side). Departure time for the run will still be 8:00 am.

>> Stolen from Speedracers post later in the thread: <<

As the event draws closer and the sign-up begins to fill, I thought I would update everyone on a few items:

1. There was one very tricky turn on the fall drive that got some people lost. That turn has been eliminated from the route. The alternate route is just as much fun.

2. Recognize that if the actual turnout is close the the sign-up number, it will be impossible to stay in one pack -that's okay, as long as people know the route.

3. Route directions will be available just before the meet, and not before hand. Sorry.

PS - The raindate, if needed, will be the following Sunday, May 27th. This will be if there is a very good chance of rain -- if we have scattered showers in the forecast it will still be going on. That was the case last year and we only had about 5 miles of rain.

Tech seems like a secondary forum for a lot of people -- most post on one of the other sites the most.

THE RUN. UPDATE as of 5-5-07

Looks like the event is going to kick butt, no matter how you look at it. The route has been formulated, but as I stated in previous posts, it will not be released until the day of. Please, please, please DO NOT BE LATE. There is no way of getting you the route information if you miss the start, and we are standing firm on the decision not to release it ahead of time. It is also slightly different from that of NEMR 2, last fall. I recommend to everyone an arrival time of 7:30am. That way you can hang a bit, and get a good look at the directions, and get gas if you need it.

There WILL NOT be a stop for gas during the drive up, so please fill up before the start. There is a Sunoco Station right next to the Basketball Hall of fame. The total drive distance for the run is approximately 110 miles with about 90 miles of unrelenting twists and turns. We will most likely be communicating with walkabouts for those of you who have them. Cell phone signals are absent in some of the remote regions we will be travelling through.

Finally, the rain date is for the following Sunday, May 27th. The final go ahead will be posted on this forum on Friday, May 18th.

Mike, Tech's not a secondary forum, its just that there's no one around here. The closest people are me (NH) Cereberus (Maine), ZippySedan (RI) and BlackFairlady (CT) and a couple guys in NY.

I have no idea if I have to work that day, and I don't own a Z, so I'm a no go.

WE ARE OFFICIALLY GO FOR THE RUN!

We leave 8 am prompt from the Basketball Hall of Fame (see original post for details). Be there at 7:30 or so to get route directions etc.

Forecast calls for 65-70*, few showers (30% chance). Last year we had a 50% chance and only had about five minutes of rain. The system going through most of our areas now into Saturday will be way up in Maine and Nova Scotia come Sunday.

Bring walkie talkies/2 way radios if you have them (ie, Motorola TalkAbout). The more people we have in communication, the better.

Summers,CT has a good route I always take to mess around. Your statement describes my route through there to a T, Also Southwick back roads has alot of good twists, turns, ups and downs too.
