Short notice for RI/MA meet

Any members near Rhode Island or MA? (except Pedro lol jk)

Dave (04RangeDave) and I are meeting next friday (12/9) around lunch time. We are planning on having a small meet, or large whatever is cool with us lol.

The spot: Super Wal-Mart off of i-95 in RI (or MA, I dont really know lol....Dave help me out)

I have contacted some other members that I am possibly meeting up with on the way up there. Places like VA and any state between NC and RI. Please feel free to chime in with any helpful info or any info at all lol.

I know this is a short notice, as it is for me too.

you should have no issue.

It's just the population of drivers. Plan for some traffic if your leaving at 11-12 Thursday night NYC is a PITA unless you can bypass it. The GWB (George Washington bridge) toll was $8.00 last spring when i crossed it. Highest toll the entire ride. The Jersey Turnpike is an experience and a half (not sure if you've traveled up this way?

Yeah, im planning for toll bridges. Never been up north much. VA is the furthest north that I have ever been.

This is another reason why im taking this trip. It will be an experience, and a chance to get away from Nashville NC for a while.

i can attest to what dave is saying about how crappy jersey to rhode island is. not fun drive. its a cluster bomb.

to bad this wasnt on the 13th or 14th, because im on my way home from pa one of those days and i'd be down to take a detour and meet up. oh well next time.

When i drove to Florida 2 years ago i went straight to Savannah Georgia. Only stopping for gas once in NC lol and getting stopped by a officer of the law. Other than those 2 stops i ran on a few monsters, sandwiches and a bag of seeds an entire bag lol

Do yourself a favor and take the Tappan Zee Bridge. Sure, it'll add about 60 miles to your trip but it's really not worth going directly thru NYC and possibly getting jammed up for hours. GWB, Lincoln Tunnel, Cross Bronx Expwy, none of it is worth the time, effort or extra cost.


Also, if you find you really want to visit central NH for whatever reason, PM me. Planning on doing some light 'wheeling up the power lines at some point next weekend.
