    The Great Race, a road rally for oldies, comes through Chambersburg in western PA next Tuesday AM on the way to Hershey. Some of the Speedster folks are planning a meet-up and maybe ride-along. Any interest?



    If I had my TD built I’d do it. Chatannooga, TN to Bennington, VT. bet it runs through Pittsfield, Mass. (my hometown) too dag nab it. Next year. And Carlisle too!

    Thread drift…but I’m blaming Allen!

    Allen…my old stomping grounds!

    As a kid (early to mid-1960’s) I spent my summers in a tiny house on North Road in Peru. No running water, but we had a two-seater out-house, which I thought was hysterical because NO ONE ever used it two at a time! My great-grandfather built the house in 1909, his daughter, my grand-mother, took it over as a summer place when he died.

    My great-grand parents are buried in a tiny cemetary in Hinsdale. 

    Swimming at Cashmere Lake (sic?). Used to be a public beach where there are lake front houses now. And a BIG night for us was to go into Pittsfield to go to Friendly’s! They only existed in New England at the time.

    OK, back to the Great  Race now.

    I would be interested in following on my own time, some of the routes this and past Great Races have followed.  Does anyone know how I can find the routes of past races, highways, and by-ways?  This looks like it would be a lot of fun, staying off the Interstates.

    The route is actually kept a secret until after race. It should be available following race on the hemmings website
