That is the thing they are not playing the Rangers this year unless they both make the playoffs.

Yes, just another note on the picture above: That was an unmaintaned road in NY and when Trenton got stuck we were turning around because the snow only got deeper.

Mark: I got your IM yesturday sorry I was quite busy at work. Maybe you would be able to drive down to Trenton. Visit SOA and participate in the drive friday & most of saturday then branch off to Boston? That would get you through 1/2 the drive anyway. Sorry about the conflict .

Perhaps sometime during the 2008 drive we can pick a rough-guess on the 2009 drive to avoid some of the scheduling conflicts? -just a thought.

You don't need no stinkin' snow tires! Birry did just fine on RE-92s in the Outback when I was riding along with him. I swear that bridge was scared

So how were the past few years? A lot of driving? Someone explain how it all works?

I am very interested...I would need to get snow tires though, plus my 1st year with my WRX in the snow...so I got time to get used to it.

Basically it's a traveling circus of subaru freaks. Nothing too bad thou, as far as I know we haven't have any arrests. Ted, that is not ment to be a challenge for you this year. Lots of driving (the whole charity drive thing). You meet up where you can and drive to our nightly destinations.

The original plan was to have locals meet up with the travelling show at various destinations. Unfortunately I don't think we met many locals on our trip last year. 2 years ago we got together with some of the Toronto Subaru club members in Niagara Falls. Maybe we'll have better luck this year???


As for suggested routes, there are lots of great "seasonal" roads in the Adirondack park north of Albany all the way up to Lake Placid. I'd love to make it to Montreal for Saturday night, but not sure if crossing the boarder is an option with the passport requirement.

Personally i think crossing the boarder would be a bad idea and would hold things up in the morning when we go to depart the area. + with the needing a passport thing these days i just dont think everyone will have a passport for this.

Splitting up the group also breaks the bond of the group.

I agree with Billy that we don't want to split the group up. At the same time, if anyone is doing any type of traveling by either plane or ship (or Amtrak) you are going to need a passport. It was supposed to have gone into affect already, but due to overwhelming requests the passport office pushed this requirement back for a short period of time.

Canada always seems to be a fun destination for us, and Montreal would be different.

As for tires, I've always done these trips on stock tires, nothing fancy, so all seasons should be fine.

Here are some links to write-ups I've done from previous years:

2005 Write up

2006 Write up

2007 Write up

NOTE: Please ignore any spelling/grammar errors on those write-ups. I've since gone back re-reading them (bored in class) and realized there are alot in each one.

I have contacted a friend of a friend who works/lives in the Lake Placid area. She has given me a list of descent hotels to check out (read: price).

She did mention that if we want to goto the Lake Placid area we will want to get our reservations soon because the skiers will be booking their rooms soon and the date for the drive is during peak skiing season (something else to concider).

NH? huh? When did you move?


I would be up for Montreal if it would be easy for us to get back into the states! Have yet to be there so that would be a ton of fun!

all this is covered on the website..but a quick recap:
usually around 800 miles plus whatever distance you travel to and from the start/end.

first year was nearly 1400 miles for me, then about 1200 2nd year, down to 850 or so for the last 2 trips.

start/end is usually a few hours apart...2 years ago we actually ran way behind schedule on sunday and had to change the final dinner location/time. we wouldnt have made it home before 4am if we kept on the planned route.

we will probably start at AZP's shop and end somwhere north of NYC as we did in previous years.

due to the # of people who seem to not have passports, im sure Mike will plan on skipping Canada this time around and announce that NEXT year Canada will be re-included in the trip so you should get your passports.
however i could be wrong... i applied for my passport and got it about 4 weeks later. however there is no gaurantee of it arriving in time for this event.

jflex99 - Please look back to post #65 of this thread. I quoted you asking about the drive and replied with 3 links to write-ups which I did covering 2005, 2006, and 2007. The first 2 write-ups include maps showing where we traveled.

Everyone please read through the thread. I know there are at least 3-4 regular attendies trying to read and answer questions as they come up.

Good summary murray!

If you are looking for a super high speed "crazy backroads drive" this is probably NOT the trip for you. We keep the pace at whatever the slowest driver wants and often times we hit snow storms that bring our pace down to about 30mph or even less in bad weather.

We stop often for pee breaks and what not as well.

Canada is out this year cause some folks don't have passports, however in 2009, be prepared for a canada crossing!

The start this year is in Cherry Hill, NJ near SOA headquarters on Thurs night. As for the rest, not sure yet!

^^ True about the speed, however when you miss a turn and have to catch up with the rest of the pack the canyon speeds can be....... just ask Sonny.
