2012 Carlisle Northeast Caravan Thread

Post by jonnymopar » Tue Jan 31, 2012 9:10 pm

I know this is way early, but it was suggested to start a thread. I'm guessing it will be a Thursday morning/early afternoon trip like usual.

Who's in?

By the way, just to get this information out there early for people coming from New England that won't be able to caravan down with us, do NOT take I-95 through NY! Take I-287 over the Tappan Zee Bridge. Consider yourself warned.

I really want to get some more people up here going. Seriously, how cool would it be to roll into the Harrisburg West 12+ cars deep?

Since there's only been a few of us going from New England in year's past, we've met in East Providence. People from VT and NY met us somewhere on I-287. Last year, glasswars met up with us in NJ, and then we were on our way to the Harrisburg West.

From New England, the route is:

I-95 until just over the NY border
I-287 over the Tappan Zee Bridge into NJ
I-78 through NJ into PA
I-81
I-83

The hotel is right off of I-83. The back parking lot of the hotel where we party actually overlooks I-83, so you'll see a row of Neons up on a hill when you're approaching it from the north.

If you look up directions to the hotel, it will take you I-95 through NY on the Cross Bronx Expressway. If you like ridiculous tolls, miserable traffic, and roads where 40MPH will probably earn you a bent wheel, then be my guest. :D

In thinking more along the lines of I-84 to I-81 to I-83 ... at least from my area that makes a little more sense to me ...

Kick ass. Another Masshole, another e-blue SRT. Two things I enjoy!

Jason, any chance you could hop on I-91S and meet us somewhere on I-95? If not, we could meet up on I-81 somewhere.

I have to make my reservations this week ... but I think I may actually go down Wednesday afternoon.

I am bringing my daughters with me ... and my parents decided they want to come along and take the kids to Hershey Park and a few other places. So we may go Wed. and on Thursday all go to Indian Caves or something like that ... then they will have the kids for most of the weekend hitting other places ... and I will have the time to sit at the show and not hear "I'm bored can we leave" every 20 minutes ... lol.

But thats still to be determined at this time .... should know more in a couple days.

Ok so I am Registered and got my rooms. I will be heading down Wednesday afternoon. Gonna spend Thursday at one of the local tourist traps with the kids and my parents. Then I have the weekend for the show.

Now to pick and choose what I am ordering to put on the car before I go ... :rockon:

What are you doing to your trans now? Did the speedometer gear fall off again?

As far as surprises, there's at least one every year. It sucks, but it happens. Luckily, they happen in the middle of the best-equipped group to deal with it.

Count my brother in: daveyram54. He barely ever comes on here, but he is officially part of the family.

Speaking of surprises, I may show up in a car that hasn't been down there since 2007.

Yea took it upon myself to take the trans apart myself... Found the speedo gear was mounted upside down...both times I sent it to the shop to be done...let's say that's no longer an issue... I have a grinding/ scraping noise that I'm investigating right now... Think its a synchronous or bearing


Slaw you want to install that remote start while I'm thete let me know....


Can't wait...been waiting all year for this.

Same as last year works for me. That's pretty much the same time I've been leaving every year.

EDIT: I have to make it to Colt State Park this year. It's only 35 minutes away from me, plus there are a few locals that don't go to Carlisle that I haven't met yet.
