    OK, even here in NJ it's a gorgeous day.
    Mandatory drive for everyone. Get out. Harness the ponies for at least on 15+mile drive today & post about it by tonight.

    I think a scenic drive up the Hudson is calling me. Maybe I can wave to meathead or find a white Ford Pickup to tangle with :)

    Sam,
    You're so smart. Hey.....that's why you bought a Mondial. :)


    Clyde,
    On "All in the Family", Carroll O' Conner's character, Archie, always referred to his son-in-law, played by Rob Reiner, as "meathead" or "you dumb Polock" or "you commie pinko". Now don't tell me you don't remember the show. You're not THAT much younger than me. ;)

    Hey I was in that neck of the woods. Didn't go up Bear Mountain proper (is the road to the top open?) but I did go over the Bear Mountain Bridge and made a brief stop to take stock of things at the vista point after crossing the bridge.

    Really was a gorgeous day. Probably put about 150 miles on. GWB to Palisades to Bear Mountain Bridge to Bear Mountain Parkway to Taconic North a bit past 84 then back down Taconic to Saw Mill and Henry Hudson.

    Nice route you chose there G. I was in the Audi with the Fam today looking at Real Estate and chomping at the bit wanting to take a run. P-car is still on the lift though undergoing its transformation so I finally feel the pain you guys go through while the F-cars are in the shop. Withdrawl is a b-i-t-c-h!

    And Geoff....

    INcredible. I was up there too!

    John, thanks for the invite....but I didn't see it until after I got back from my run. Raincheck?


    I went out for pancakes in Caldwell (Eric, right near the Wheels America place...good food!) then decided to hit OfficeMax for printer cartridges, then hit Berganfield for a personal errand....and kept going.
    about 2:00pm, hit Rt 4 to Palisades to 9W...all the way up across the Bear Mountain bridge to the "Aniversary lookout" , around the Aquarium (or this fish restraunt we stopped at 1 year ago), back down the mountain to the "Lodge", looped around the circle 3 times (in commemoration) , past the "Lodge" & up & over the mountain on whatever road that is....(Geoff, the Perkins? rd was closed & snow covered) and back down the palisades to 87N to 287S to 23S & home. About 150 Miles all together.

    Very little traffice..., only 1 cop at one of the palisades look-out stops (nope, not meathead....I waved, & this young officer waved back). Didn't see a white pick-up in Piedmont. Oh well.

    That's it - Perkins Rd. I didn't even look today as the last times I checked it was closed for the season, which I interpret as all the snow has to be long gone before they'll bother unblocking it.

    Sounds like a good drive you got in, Clyde!

    Sounds like a great day of driving. I guess you two were the 1st Anniversary run? ;)

    Not sure it counts if we're all out there separately...

    ...but then again, maybe I'm just saying that because I want to go out and do it all again. :D

    Utkarsh,
    I told my g/f you lived close by & I wish I knew exactly where, but I assumed you were back at school. Stupid me. Got your number & I'll be sure to call next time.

    Sorry Rob. This run for me was spur-of-the-moment otherwise I would have posted. I did see a dark blue vette & I had hopes for but a moment, but it didn't have "Student driver" on it.

    Nope, this isn't an anniversary run. Just practice. :)

    U-man - I'll put the number in my phone and be sure to give you a call whenever I cross the GWB. Lately for my spontaneous drives I've gotten into the habit of doing exactly the loop I described above. So I don't think it will be too long before I'm headed through again.

    MMmmmmmm about 2:30 maybe 3. Well, without your vette, I wouldn't have known you were around. I doubt I'd given the Conti a second look ;)

    Taking the g/f around in the Conti, huh? Hmmmmmm. But then, it does have soft back seats, doesn't it :D
