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.

Might be a tall order,finding a budget friendly Motel with a Bar/Restaurant on Friday Night in the Pocono's. Probably will need some local knowledge. :y:

 

Annapolis will be even worse in the summer on a Saturday night

+I may visit somewhere along the way. I've started a new job and am somewhat restricted on leave use with a particularly heavy schedule. I'll probably be at Zack's, but am currently unsure of my other abilities.

 

Ride on.

Any chance I can meet you guys out in Chicopee Friday morning and ride along for a hour or two? Can't get the time off from work but don't have to be at work until 3pm.

Got hotel reservation for Thursday night at the Hampton Inn, and will be out there probably around 8-8:30pm Thursday night as long as I can get the vacation time approved for the second half of my shift. If not I will be there around 1am.

Will/XC Bubba .. I will be joining you guys Friday morning along the way somewhere, I am not sure where though. My bro should be joining us (I hope) and we were thinking of heading South and meeting somewhere in CT. I am going to look at the map and see if I can figure something out, but what are your thoughts about the best place and time in CT to meet? I also may come out to the BBQ Thursday night as well with part of the family.
