The C2C6 Banquet and Auction will be held at the Omni Mount Washington Resort on Saturday June 21st.

Cocktail hour will be at 5pm and dinner will be at 6PM.

Got our banquet tickets as well, just now.

The 3er got all of its fluids flushed earlier today (Transmission, Transfer Case, Differentials, Power Steering, Brakes) and is ready for this year's pilgrimage to New Hampshire!

Sure, I'd love to catch-up afterwards, that is, if our stomachs are capable of accepting food after a day of driving at the school.

I'll buy the 1st round!

You'll be starving. You use a lot of physical and nervous energy. Also, keep drinking (water and gatorade) through the day. If you don't, it catches you at the end of the day...right when you have the most confidence in your ability and closer to your's and the car's limits. A bad combination!

Have a great time - You'll love it!

We visited Sam and Ellen Posey at their art Studio. Ellen has completed another panel for her American Mural Project (http://www.wallofamerica.com).

This picture of Ellen and Marsha standing in front of it gives an idea of the scale of the paintings and this is only a small portion of the entire mural which will be 120 feet long, five stories high and 10 feet deep.

M - thanks for the sound advice. I will make sure to have energy bars and plenty of water on hand. Will report my thoughts and impressions, following the event.

Captain - the quality and scale of the panel is incredible, I can't even imagine the dimensions of the completed mural, at 120 feet of length and 5 stories high! Marsha looks good in the picture, hope both of you are doing OK.

Hopefully by the time the Fall Foliage Run is at the door I will have my new shiny M235i ready for the drive
By the way, I forgot what hidden gems New York State and Westchester and Dutches Counties can offer. Two days ago I took my car in for a service at my dealer up by the Bear Mountain, and took the 6 over the Bear Mountain Bridge to Peekskill, NY - it inspired me to take the 9W back home later at the day.

Oh ya, that is a really great road except for when you get stuck behind the 15mph leaf-peeper or scaredy-cat w/ the stones wall so close!

Looking forward to both C2C and then Foliage Run. See y'all there.

One of my favorite roads in the area north of NYC is the Storm King Highway.

One of the most scenic drives in New York State, the Storm King Highway straddles the Hudson Highlands along the west bank of the Hudson River between the village of Cornwall and West Point.

This is truly a 'gem'. One that I have to visit in the near future! So close to the city but seeming like a world away. Thank You
