I'm in, I got a friend with a Mazda MP3 coming also... Should be a good time.... I would suggest us meeting up at some predetermined exit on the NJ turnpike if thats how people are going (that was my plan) around exit 5 should do it, that gives us another ~85miles together

Here is the first service station you pass when coming from Phily...

James Fenimore Cooper (between Interchanges 4 and 5)

more info here http://www.state.nj.us/turnpike/nj-vcenter-serv.htm

if this is out of the way for anyone (you get on the turnpike after exit 5) we can meet at this one: Woodrow Wilson (between Interchanges 7 and 7A)

at any rate what time do you guys want to meet? 8-8:30am sounds good to me

post up your suggestion

Let's do it at cooper, unless we get objections. Have everyone aim for 8:15 with some people getting there earlier and some later, due to the unpredictable nature of traffic?

We should be able to roll out by 8:30...

I will be there with my CB M3 and my friend in his laser blue MP3...

should be a blast.... maybe we should get a final list of people going in this convoy and exchange cell numbers.

Obioban, can you edit the first post with a list similar to the main thread in the Northeast section?

Just food for thought, if we leave at 8:30 we'll be in Mahwah at least a half hour after the big group has left. Any objections to leaving a little bit earlier? Or was it our intent to just meet them up at the BBQ?

so that means we should leaving the service station @ 7:30 (we can make up 15min or more on the highway :dance: )

i will be there at 7:15 and guess i will leave at 7:30.

I wake up at 6am all week too, but sat and sun are my catch up days. I figure why leave so early just for the initial meet at the hotel. Everyone is still going to go to the BBQ right. So Ill still see all the cars and meet ppl agt the BBQ. Plus there are going to be so many cars on the road to Bear Mountain that you wont even be able to exeperience the twisty roads at higher than the posted speeds. Later on there will be no traffic. 3-5 Ms driving up the the mountain would seem to be the best. Ill probly leave around 10am.

I won't be able to make the meet this weekend unfortunantly (looks like it's going to snow/rain anyways :nixweiss: ) but I'll def get together in the future. :beer:
