RE: ROAD TRIP!!!

Dude, I bet I could make Cape Cod from Danvers in well, maybe 30 minutes, but in 45 minutes for sure, I mean we are talking Massachusetts here - not Texas. But I really never have kicked around the Danvers area much, being more from the Portsmouth, NH area, so I appreciate your tour tips - Higgins and Old Orchard Beaches, you are referring to Old Orchard in Maine, are you not? I will be in that area a lot, as my uncle lives in Casco Bay, Maine and I will be visiting him for a few days. Higgin's Beach sounds interesting, and is probably not far from there, as he is 20 minutes from Old Orchard.

I've been to Marblehead a number of times. It is truly a beautiful place. I know exactly the harbor of which you speak. There are a few spots like that on the New Hampshire coast as well, if you drive the various off shoots of US 1, like 1-A, which takes you to the lobster boat harbors between Rye and Portsmouth - but my favorite is the Kittery Town Docks, just across the harbor from Portsmouth in Maine. There is a fantastic resturant that overlooks Kittery Harbor on the shore at the beginning of the docks, where you can pig on seafood and watch the sailboats and lobster boats do their thing, directly across from an old shoal with a lighthouse. Quintessimal New England. When the sun rises, it is a fantastic place to eat breakfat too, as the sun turns the Atlantic into a sheet of glass dotted with colorful sails and little white caps. A great place to nurse a hangover, after a night in York. If I remember right, Marblehead is a lot like that, too. I will try to post some pictures of it.


Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

RE: ROAD TRIP!!!

Speaking of 280SLs, this one on getting buzz on the SL forum is a steal if what the seller is saying is true, that he has records going all the way back to Germany:

Altho Botnst seems to be boycotting us these days, if I was looking for one for the wife to drive that I could also putter with, I'd buy that one in a minute. 78 was a great year for the 280 engine, heck, my 77 280E would blow the doors off my 83 280SL. For five grand, I would scratch and claw to get my hands on this car, in fact, maybe I can raise the cash........

? You must have something special under the hood of that SL....

Any chance you want to pick me up in Sandwich and drop me off at Logan on the 7th? current plan is bus.

Kittery is great too. And yes Higgins is in Maine. Old Orchard has the maine equivalent of the Jersey Shore- lots of canadian and american tourists, t-shirt shops- cheap hotels, etc. blah! Higgins is pristine and locals-only.

Here it is; my island!

click the map link on my previous post. Sandwich is just across the Sagamore bridge on Cape Cod- technically you come across the bridge into sagamore, then go 'round the rotary and head a mile or two up the cape to sandwich. I'll have a phone, but there is a massive military base that sometimes seems to brown-out the service...

my flight is at 3, so I've got to get up to Logan by 1:30-2 at the latest. If it works out, maybe we could grab lunch and write love letters to sklasse and vabonedudehead.

RE: ROAD TRIP!!!

Ok. PM me your cell #, and I'll call you when I am on the road. I am leaving on Jun 30, so I will probably be in Danvers on the 6th if I take in some sites. If I am not going to make it by then I'll call you and let you know by the 4th - will that work? I have quite figured out what cell I am taking with me yet, when I do I'll PM it to you.

I haven't done Logan since the new Big Dig was put in, you better know the way.

it's easy just take the tunnel if ur coming up from the cape.

from danvers to sandwich you should budget at least 1.5 hrs..
it would be 30 mins. but by plane!

have a good trip!

RE: ROAD TRIP!!!

Yeah, I thought about it and you guys are right, I am way underestimating the travel time.
