I haven't pulled the footage from the GoPro and the BlackVue yet. Will play with it and if the results are mediocre I'll send the footage to you to edit.



Anyone reading this from CT, Long Island or South NJ familiar with roads like the ones in Bear Mountain for the next meet?

Meet and drive - Bear Mountain: Sun. Oct 27 7:30 AM!

It was great meeting everyone and the drive was awesome. Even wifey had a good time since it was "us" time and we got to do it together (as opposed to me disappearing for the day to play golf with my buddies).

Let's do it!

Had a bunch of no shows including a ///M6 conv. and a coupe and another 2 ///M5.
2 GTRs came to the initial meet location but left before the drive.

This meet & drive was awesome and should have been even better.
I think location A and B are perfect. We can vary the itinerary next time.

The caravan, though small as you see it in the pics, turned heads!

Yep - I'll try to make it too

This time we should include the winding road I took across the bridge - Richard, you know it right?

I do, I took it as well on my way down to Manhattan after I left you guys. The problem with that side is that there is nothing once the fun road ends. It would be better to actually take it to drive to Bear Mountain, so do the drive in the other direction.

It would look like this, ah!

Would a Saturday drive work? I'm usually busy Sundays?

Would've loved to make it the the last one, looked awesome

Yes, we should do a Sat for the next one. Another (yet) ///M5 could not come because Sun wasn't a good day for him either.

Still love the early AM meeting. Stick to 7:30 AM if you guys are ok with it.

Will it be the exact same location as last one? How long do these things usually last? I have a x3 35i and want to make it.

I read Route 23 by the High Point State Park in Jersey is a good drive.

For this one we arrived at the second location around 11:30 AM after several stops to take pics and a very nice 40 milea drive from location A to B.

Too late for this weekend and the weather isn't good for Sat anyway.
Following weekend ok for everyone?

I've been busy the past few weekends, but Saturday next week should be good for me.

High Point State Park would be pretty awesome for me, real easy for me to get to If you were to do that, I'd suggest starting out at Garrett Mountain. It's a nice two mile loop with an overlook over Paterson. Our cars driving around the loop would certainly cause a scene. And don't get scared by Paterson. It's not physically in Paterson, and is quite safe. I go there all the time. Only thing is that Route 23 is a pretty pedestrian road for most of the trip, although you do pass through a "Weird NJ" attraction.

Not to mention the view from High Point State Park is supposed to be pretty spectacular.

Thank you for the pics guys.

This is me dabbling with video editing, I have no idea what I am doing with importing, rendering, exporting and publishing video content so I managed to screw up the quality of the image.

I live nearby and wish I knew about this...I was away for a week without access to the forum - of course, that's when you guys decided to have a meet 10 miles away from me! Who organized this again? jkkk

I'm def down for the next one! 7.30am is real early though; something around 11am or so would work a lot better Sat or Sun, doesn't matter.
Let's do this.
