Quabbin Reservoir Run-Meet

Hello to those in New England (although everyone is welcome),
Was wondering if there's any interest in having a socially distant meet at the Quabbin Reservoir before the snows fly (within the next couple of weekends). It's been a few years since I've been there but remember that it's a nice drive around the man-made lake.

Patrick

Great! How does this upcoming weekend look? I'm not sure if Thanksgiving weekend works due to family commitments however: my wife and I are keeping low key this year due to the pandemic so the 28th or 29th is also good for me. How about meeting in the McDonalds parking lot at the corner of Rte 202 (Main Street) and Rte 9 around 10am?

148 N. Main Street
Belchertown, MA

Looking at Google Maps, it looks like an easy route: 202 north to 122 east to 32A south until back on Rte 9. We could break for lunch somewhere along the route (does anyone recommend a place?).

If I lived a little closer I would join you.

Anyone up for something like this in the DC area? Maybe out towards Front Royal and back?

Ok, it looks like we have a few people interested. Let's plan to meet this Saturday at 10am. Please PM me for my cell number, just in case...
Thanks for bringing the lenses...

I'm not that good with tech but will ask if someone wants to take this on.

Great shot Chris. Indeed, a very pleasant outing and better still, putting names to faces, making new friends. And, my encounter with a Massachusetts State Trooper was only to ask “Have you seen a bunch of old Porsche’s drive by, Sir?”

On the way home I listened to Steely Dan’s “Aja”, enjoying the intimate environment of my SC and feeling glad I wasn’t at home for once, which is where I’d likely have been if Patrick hadn’t summoned us to the open road.

Thanks Patrick, Chris, Ed & Joan and Bill.

PS, we only saw one other interesting old car, but it was a blue Dino 246, heading in the opposite direction.

I'm not the best at formation parking.
