  5. Thanks for your support on this epic ride, this is my 4th year as your Road Captain for the Eastern most Leg of the V2V and I am again excited to be a part of this great event. We are starting our ride planning and will meet to discuss the plans on March 16 (Noon) at the 99 Restaurant in Chicopee. This Planning meeting is open to all interested VMC members and the directions to the meeting is posted in several forums for you. Right now we are planning all backroads for the Leg. We will be scoping out hotels in Chicopee for everyone and will post the hotel info as it becomes available. As the Leg 1 Road Captain I usually arrange a Hotel for each end of this Leg. It may be a while before I can get to Stroudsburg to scope the Hotels there, but I will get this for you as soon as I can. :usf
