This looks like it could be fun.

That does look pretty cool.
There’s an annual classic and street rod show on the Wildwood boardwalk. Friends that have attended report that it’s a blast!

That does look like fun. Last couple years, I’ve been doing the Historic Races at Lime Rock on that weekend…maybe switch it up this year if people are into it.January 27, 2017 at 8:24 pm #302853newkitmanParticipant
Bill, Paul, Ed. Along the lines of shows and rides, is there any type of organized “covered bridge” tour or rides up in your neck o the woods? I think that’d be a fun thing to go to.

I mapped out a prospective run in Northern Delaware a few years ago, ending at Stoney’s, a British pub. But it never came together.January 29, 2017 at 9:26 am #302856sabreur76Keymaster
I have a mapped out covered bridge ride in Delaware/Chester/Lancaster Counties that the Historical Car Club of PA does for its Spring Run. The run is limited to members of the club but if you want the route I can forward it to you.
The other alternative is to join HCCP, the fees are $15.00 a year, and show up for the Blossom Run (this year it will be April 10th.) There’s no additional charge for the run and you can think of your annual membership as entry fee for the tour.

Thanks guys. I’ll have to map out the route for the ones in NE Georgia. Not as many of them as are in PA.

I keep telling myself, ‘someday I’m going to see the northeast US’. I’ve been across the country from southern tip of Florida to Washington state (only stepped into Canada there), north to Ohio and Washington D.C. but not into the NE corner of the country.
I’m going to try to plan a long touring visit whenever I do get there, so events involving old cars should not be overlooked. You’ve only intrigued me more by mentioning covered bridges because I had been mapping out and sightseeing them locally (Alabama and neighboring states), along with railroad caboose cars set aside in public parks and such.
I used Google Earth to do that and maybe someone else might find it useful. The locations and info were gathered almost entirely from a few sources I found on the ‘net, not to be considered 100% accurate. Not only that, the definition of “covered bridge” is considered to be everything from slightly more than yard decoration (across ditch) to old ruins. Internet search of possible destinations potentially helpful in that regard, something I’ve learned for every sightseeing adventure and events since they change year by year.January 29, 2017 at 8:47 pm #302863royalParticipant
If you made the small town of Roscoe, NY (pop abt 600)(in the Catskill Mountains) your hub for a day or two, there are nine covered bridges that I know of. All are open to one lane traffic and all are within 25 miles of Roscoe (my hometown). Plus, Roscoe is internationally famous for fly fishing and has a Fly Fishing museum (if you’re into that). Absolutely beautiful driving country roads where a 1/2 mile straightaway is very rare. There is an O&W Railway caboose on display in town, right in front of the Railroad Museum. It’s about the busiest 600 person town you might ever see (2 hrs from NYC). May – Oct recommended.January 29, 2017 at 10:04 pm #302864lrhParticipant
Hey Lrh, If you made the small town of Roscoe, NY (pop abt 600)(in the Catskill Mountains) your hub for a day or two, there are nine covered bridges that I know of.
That’s a good idea too. I only thought about a direct route via metropolitan areas so I could see all the usual tourist places, so a scenic route would be better than doubling back. Main consideration is time, I know it takes a while going place to place as it is, and more so on those winding country roads to the isolated spots. But I also like to make the most of everything so it would be my loss if I didn’t try to go everywhere I possibly could while there.
Looked at the satellite map of Roscoe, and then a birds eye view. Sure enough, there was the RR caboose. What a little hamlet that is, out there surrounded by beautiful wooded hills! I always have to remind myself New York is not just the city of same name.
