Fred, I like your ideas, especially driving around Seven Lakes Drive....As I recall it's very scenic. Just one problem, the Inn is closed until Spring 2006 for renovations. Can anyone suggest an alternate restaurant? As you pointed out scheduling this for early in the day makes sense...on a pretty Sunday afternoon in the spring I think traffic can get pretty busy up there.fredfromny - 4/4/2005 9:07 AM
We could meet in the parking lot (empty) and then take an hour or 2 drive around seven lakes drive. We could end up at the same or another local restaurant for optional brunch. Can do this relatively early so there's les traffic. Don't know anything about the quality of the food, though.
Sounds great, Fred. I beleive I've seen the restaurant you are talking about when I've taken my boat up the Hudson River. My vote is to run with your idea as getting the consensus of a larger group of people may be unwieldy...hopefully no one will disagree. I guess we just sit back now and wait to see who tells us they are joining us? One question for you...let's say we get 10-12 cars, how do we logistically all drive together without getting separated? Perhaps it's no big deal...but I've never done something like this before.fredfromny - 4/4/2005 9:44 AM
The Depot in Cold Spring is very nice with reasonable prices. It's not too far away and is frequented by a few Car Clubs. I'd say lets meet at the Bear Mountain Inn parking area at 8:30 AM to begin a 9AM drive finishing at 11AM at the Depot.
I've done a few with my TT group.shark22 - 4/4/2005 10:01 AM
