What could be better than TWISTIES and a visit to an ICE CREAM joint? How about a visit to FOUR great homemade ice cream joints. We will meet at Pine Cliff Park (think Crack Pie Run) and head out on part of Maryland's Best Ice Cream Trail. (http://marylandsbest.net/) We will be traveling the back roads around Frederick, Brunswick, Hagerstown, and Waynesboro, Pa. to test the delicious offerings of four creameries. Our first stop will be Rocky Point Creamery. Everything is good there, but pace yourself, we have a long way to go. Next stop is the agriculturally scented summer air at the South Mountain Creamery for more frozen refreshments. From here, we head north to the Misty Meadows Farm Creamery. Hope you are not full yet, because we have one more stop to make. Last stop is Antietam Dairy just over the state line in beautiful Waynesboro, PA.

The route is 66 miles and will take a little over two hours, IF WE DON'T STOP FOR ICE CREAM, so add another hour and a half.

Please bring cash to speed up the feeding process.

    We had a great time and we just finished the wonderful milk! I finally got around to posting some of our photos. It was nice to meet everyone and it was a great day for motoring!

    Last night on my way home from the run, I took my farm fresh milk and cheese over to my parents' so they could try them. I didn't explain to both of them that it was just to TRY them--just Mom. I figured (grr) they'd communicate. Mom found the empty bottle in the recycling today: Dad drank the whole quart of milk, and there is only a little piece of cheese left. My first samples of yummy farm food!! At least he's promising not to finish the cheese and give me a shot at the last few bites. Sheesh!! Try and be nice...

    Thanks for a great drive Tom! Roads were a blast and you couldn't have asked for better scenery. Oh, and the ice cream - fabulous. So glad today was a calorie free day! Great to see everyone.

    This will be my first time back to C3M since I traded in my Lightning Blue 2007 S Hardtop for my new Chili Red 2010 S Hardtop!

    3 · August 10, 2013

  • Tom L.

    Matt has volunteered to lead a second group so we are going to split the run into two groups. The first group will leave the park at 11:00 AM. The second group will leave at 11:30. We will try to split the number of cars equally. This should help keep us together, allow for parking at some of the smaller creameries, and not overwhelm the staff. Please reply with which group you want to join. I will keep it as fair as possible.

    August 6, 2013

    • Nikki

      @Erica. :-(

      August 9, 2013

    • Rachael M.

      11:30 please. :-)

      August 10, 2013

  • Charles and M.

    Would prefer the early group, but flexible. Put me where you need. We'll watch the posting and show up when directed.

    August 9, 2013

    • Tom L.

      Thanks for being flexible. I'll put you in at 11:30.

      August 10, 2013

  • John (aka j.

    Have a very long run on Sat with CarlisleMINI and while I would love to join everyone, and the mind is willing, but the body says it will be a bit much!

    August 9, 2013

    • Shawn(MoonRacer)

      No there are still two of us coming down from Carlisle we are signed up for your time slot Tom.

      August 9, 2013

    • Nikki

      Oh hey my car slot is open since I'm riding with Will in the 11am group.

      August 9, 2013

  • Obsessive

    I would prefer the 11am so I can return home as early as possible-thanks!

    August 9, 2013

  • Celia

    C3M Stickers will be available at this run! Even though I am in group 2 ill be there early so if anyone in group 1 wants one they have a chance to get one. While supplies last, first come first serve. See yall Sunday!

  • Steve H.

    What group will I B in

    August 8, 2013

    • Matt L.

      Steve, we are trying to have two equal groups so if you can go later that would be good.

      August 8, 2013

  • Pam&Jeff

    Hi, we'd prefer the first group for earlier timing, if possible. Thanks!

    August 8, 2013

  • erica

    Should the 11:30 group show up at 10:45?

    August 7, 2013

    • Matt L.

      The original depart time for the run was 10:30. I think that we usually meet 15 minutes prior to take off.

      August 7, 2013

    • Tom L.

      The times have been edited.

    No preference. Whichever one works for you guys.

  • Lorraine and Tom L.

    Please put me in the 11 am group. Thanks.

    August 6, 2013

  • Amy

    We are going to bow out. We've been on a road trip to Minnesota and will only be home for 24 hours before the run. I love my car, but I'm ready for a break. Have a great time!

    August 6, 2013

  • James

    I might be going but similar to last year, I won't be there for the start of the run (the call of pomegranate mimosa's with a bacon, spinach and cheddar omelet is too strong) but I'll materialize at Misty Meadows eying down a goat at some point.

    3 · August 2, 2013

  • Randy (aka B.

    We are pulling out, other commitments.

    August 2, 2013

    • James

      Thank you for letting us know ahead of time, there will always be another ice cream run no worries!

      August 2, 2013

  • Steve H.

    Can I still get in on this?

    August 1, 2013

    • Tom L.

      Yes, we have 6 spots open.

      August 1, 2013

    • Steve H.

      Thanks C U there

      August 2, 2013

  • Rita

    Gotta another family airport pickup that same day. Drats! I actually had to think about which was the "right" thing to do...MINI madness, eh? :-)

    1 · July 27, 2013

  • Cecilia A W.

    I'm going to be out of town. :(

    July 27, 2013

  • Tom L.

    Ok, I hate to do this, but we have 33 cars signed up for this run. I am going to have to cut off sign ups. We were able to keep 24 cars together last year, but even with drop outs, I am not sure we will be able to keep the group together, plus parking may be an issue at a couple of the stops. Sorry about that.

    July 25, 2013

    • Tom L.

      I would love to have someone volunteer to run a second group or do the run on another day for those that couldn't make it. Last year Mark did just that the following week. However, Mark is already organizing a bunch of other events so we need some new volunteers to lead runs or set up events. All help will be greatly appreciated.

      July 25, 2013

    • Matt L.

      I will volunteer to take half of the group. We can leave a half hour after the first half.

      1 · July 26, 2013

  • Tom L.

    One final comment for those joining me Friday. Since there will only be a few of us, it should not take us too long to get to the first stop. That, plus my driving has sometimes been termed "spirited." I plan on leaving the park at 11:00 am.

    1 · July 25, 2013

    • Will S

      Just remember the "spirited" part when it's the real run! :-))

      1 · July 25, 2013

    • Heather

      Thanks for inviting us to tag along!

      July 26, 2013

  • Lawry

    Today's trial run was an absolute blast! Think roller coasters, primo ice cream and a perfect summer day! However, 4 stops for ice cream has completely "ice cream'd" me for the rest of the year so I'll be dropping out. Have a great time on the 11th!

    2 · July 26, 2013

  • Tom L.

    For those joining me tomorrow, please remember your radios and print out the route sheet that can be found here http://files.meetup.com/1430295/ice%20cream%20run.pdf

    For everyone else, if we make any changes to the route, I will update the route sheet and remind you to print it out for the 11th.

    July 25, 2013

    • John (aka j.

      One thing to remember, don't worry about the "promised" range on the box/wrapper 'cause those numbers are always point to point/line of sight/as the crow flies, another words unless you're at the Salt Flats you won't see any thing even close to them. There are times when you're on a road full of twisties and dipsies and the cars in front of you, maybe 100 yard disappear around a turn and all you hear is static....

      July 25, 2013

    • Tom L.

      Rita - WalMart, Radio Shack, Dick's, Bass Pro Shops. Just make sure they have sub-channels.

    Ice Cream & Minis = fun -- count us in! We look forward to the first outing with this group Pam & Jeff

    July 24, 2013

  • Tom L.

    Carol and I are going to do a practice run Fri the 26th to make sure the route is still okay and to warn the creameries the MINIs are coming. Anyone who wants to join us is welcome. Meet at the park at 10:30.

    1 · July 23, 2013

      I need a lot of practice eating ice cream. I would like to tag along since I won't make it to the real run.

      I would like to come as well.

    I apologize for highjacking the thread, but just thinking about eating all that ice cream gave me a sugar rush and bit of a brain freeze! :~D
