Island Hopping (or we can just drive)

MARK YOUR CALENDARS!!! This will be the first major ride for the NEW Vermont Miata Club. We will tour all three of the Large Lake Champlain Islands with a stop for lunch at Heros's Welcome, in North Hero. We will pick up Sandwiches and drinks and have a picnic lunch at their waterfront tables. Please make your sandwich selection from this link - http://heroswelcome.com/grand-isle-deli.html - and have your selection ready to hand in at the start of the ride and i will call in the order so it is waiting for us when we arrive. lwill update this post as details develop, but i wanted you to mark your calendars now. The starting point is the park and ride which is located on route 7, just about 1/4 mile north of the Maplefields Mobil Station at exit 17. If you need it, my number is[masked] 9060. If all you know of the islands is route 2, then this will be different. We are going to spend very very little time on route 2.

    Led by Tom Brown, our caravan of 10 colorful Miatas drew comments all over the islands. We traveled so many back roads, many along the shore, on this glorious summer Day. We had an interesting mix of people of all ages, and the camaraderie was great. We have enjoyed the islands over the years, but this was an excursion that let us see so many hidden treasures in that beautiful part of our state. Thank you, Tom, for organizing and leading us!

    Betty and I had a fantastic time. Been on the islands a lot and you still found places we had never seen. What a thrill to see all these nice Miatas and meet some great people. We are looking forward to the next one. Great job Tom!

    Extremely enjoyable trip, great company, and wonderful weather... we outran the one 30-second rain shower at the end, so our tops stayed down all day despite the weather forecast. Thank you, Tom, for such a well organized and interesting event.

    Tom, thanks for organizing the trip! I drive out to Alburg weekly to visit with friends and cruse down the islands just to relax. This event gave me an opportunity to see sites I've never thought of exploring. The company, our stops visiting the Quakers, lunching together and our colorful caravan topped off a perfect weather day. See you at our next meeting. Safe driving!

    We've traveled the Islands every year since getting the Miata and this was the best ride yet. We didn't know such a beautiful route existed. Great job Tom!

    Looks like I'm out. The part I'm waiting for is scheduled to arrive on Monday and my Miata won't run without it.

    We can handle a shower if we have to, most likely if there are any they will be in the afternoon, so we should be fine. This ride is on, rain or shine, either way will be fun.

    I hope the Miata will be out of storage in NH well before June 1. Would have gotten it last weekend except the roads were still salt covered. See you there.
