This looks like a great way to start the season.

There will be at least two of us from NS heading down for the open house. I plan to stay in Gorham the night of the 18th.

Prolly not. But I can have fun trying.

Who's the other NSer? If it's you and Donnie, I won't even try.

:D



You know.....that's probably the Chowdah Run weekend

That place is awesome! Every day is like an open house there, but with door prizes and all, it'll really be worth the trip.

And you can always stop at the Eagle's Nest for lunch on the way down, eh? But don't sit at the same table as MEM. They don't like her there, and give her the "Canadian Tourist" portions. :P


You know.....that's probably the Chowdah Run weekend



Just an FYI... Not really sure of the status of the "Chowder Run" this year.

I, personally, can't commit to it, at least not until we get our spring track schedule. So... unless someone else steps up and grabs the reins, that ride may fall by the wayside. :(

I don't think Donnie will make it down for this run. It is another buddy on one of theose BMW things.

I have a room booked at the Top Notch Inn. It would be great so a few others meet up there.

UPDATE as of February 16th: Now staying at Town & Country http://www.townandco...com/contact.php

Arriving May 17 - leaving Dodge on the 19th.

Well, we can have coffee and you can, at least, escort me across the Border. The lad on the gate in September found it ...interesting...that I was traveling alone to NH. I offered him the pillion seat ...( he was cute in that uniformed-border-guard kind of way ;))

No worries, Fred! We'll make our own Chowdah Run :D

How about an abbreviated reverse Chowdah run (Bar Harbour to Kennebunkport; May 17-19) with a finish run up to Conway. Just a thought.

I'm pro'lly in for meeting you Canuckistanians somewhere on this weekend. I've freed up my weekends this spring, and I'm too lazy to do another Chowder run.
There's never a bad excuse to visit White Horse and if they're havin' a party, well hell's bells... get outta my way.
We can go strafe the Kank before the summah tourists clog it up too much, and if Bear Notch is open... :yahoo:


(If you want,and we have the time to, I'll also let you in on some of the local, secret sauce. Roads that don't get all published-up and are just as good or better than the aforementioned)

Sounds good to me. We'll be arriving in Gorham the evening of the 17th. That leaves us all day on Friday for play time before going to Whitehorse on Saturday.

Cool. I just realized that this is going to be a busy week. This is the weekend before a planned dual-sport assault of the Vermont PDR (from end to end) starting on Monday morning. Should work out great!! :yahoo:

A bit of advice -- hit the Kanc on Friday and stay the hell away from it on Saturday. We went to the open house a couple of years ago and discovered it falls on the same day as the annual Crank the Kanc bicycle race. Between all the riders headed for Whitehorse, the peddle pushers clogging up the shoulders, and all the regular traffic, you'll be crawling along at parade speeds.
