View Full Version : Maxbimmer Autumn Cruise 2012: Sunday September 16th

Date: Sunday September 16th
Time: 11am meet - 12pm SHARP cruise departure (you're not there, too bad!)
Meeting Place: Dave & Busters parking lot
Address: 120 Interchange Way, Vaughan

Time for another run around the Muskoka region! As above indicates we'll be meeting in Woodbridge for an hour of chatting then depart northbound. The full round trip back to the Toronto area is around 400km. As I did for the Spring Cruise I will create a Google map of the route and have copies for everyone at the meet spot.

News:
- the last 1/4 of the route is different than last year's. Several new twisty and scenic backroads have been found and implemented into the old basic route.
- there is a lunch stop, a coffee stop, and a dinner stop. We never drive more than 1.5 hours without a break to stretch our legs, regroup, and use the facilities.
- the lunch and coffee stops are 30 mins each and I will give a 5 minute warning before leaving each stop.
- dinner will take place at around 5:30pm. Your choice of either Boston Pizza or Regatta Steakhouse which sit next to each other right on the water in Gravenhurst.
- if you stay for dinner, expect to return to the GTA at approximately 9pm. If you skip dinner but do the full cruise route you will be in the GTA by 7:30pm. Distance from Dave & Busters to dinner stop = 245km; distance from dinner location back to D&B = 145km.

Here's some great pics of last year's event taken by our ex-photog qimis (thanks Len!):

can't make this one.. i'll be driving on the Tail of the Dragon (http://www.tailofthedragon.com/) with a bunch of friends for a 4-day (stag) get-a-way. Won't make the Autoslalom either. Somehow I think it'll be worth it though. :cool:*drink* *shiner* :D

Love to hear the details about that. I know what you mean.. I currently have a warrant out for my arrest in New Jersey State from the old DTMpower days. Not going there anytime soon!

Don't forget to include Highway #13 after Orillia from HWY 11 north to Torrence and then on into Bala. Soft shoulders and lots of turns.*wiggle*

Update. So I drove the route this weekend to make sure the roads and open and in good shape. I made a few significant changes:

- the last 1/4 of the route is different than last year's. Several new twisty and scenic backroads have been found and implemented into the old basic route.
- there is a lunch stop, a coffee stop, and a dinner stop. We never drive more than 1.5 hours without a break to stretch our legs, regroup, and use the facilities.
- the lunch and coffee stops are 30 mins each and I will give a 5 minute warning before leaving each stop.
- dinner will take place at around 5:30pm. Your choice of either Boston Pizza or Regatta Steakhouse which sit next to each other right on the water in Gravenhurst.
- if you stay for dinner, expect to return to the GTA at approximately 9pm. If you skip dinner but do the full cruise route you will be in the GTA by 7:30pm. Distance from Dave & Busters to dinner stop = 245km; distance from dinner location back to D&B = 145km.

Overall I'm very happy with the road conditions as well as the new route additions. I hope that the new structured stop/break schedule will help alleviate some of the issues we've had as the cruise groups get larger and larger each year.

Don't forget to include Highway #13 after Orillia from HWY 11 north to Torrence and then on into Bala. Soft shoulders and lots of turns.*wiggle*

Southwood is one of the main reasons we run this route in that direction. But it is just 1 of about 6 great roads in the Muskoka Region we enjoy on this cruise. :)

Hows this route for slammed cars? I would really like to join but something tells me that this route will make me lose my lip and crack my oilpan or something lol.

There were some REALLY low cars at last year's event that made to the end of the day without issue. I'll say if you have 2" of clearance to the lowest of parts (exhaust likely) you'll be fine.

I'll be in my E30 with about 3" to the oil pan. Plenty safe. *th-up*

Thanks again for organizing this cruise.
Even though my friend and I lost the convoy right from the beginning, we made our way through the entire route, and somehow unknowingly passed the entire convoy and making up 20-30minutes?!

Looking forward to the next cruise! (I guesstimate it will be 2x more fun with the convoy + no need to navigate.. navigating while trying to enjoy the drive tends not to work out well..)

Thanks to everyone that made this cruise happen. The roads were awesome, weather was great and the crowd was friendly. I look forward to doing that route in a few weeks again once the fall colours have started.

Had a blast, best cruise in a while. The roads were amazing.
Everyone was well behaved, which kept things smooth and allowed everyone to enjoy a good pace.

Pretty sure things went smoothly because certain 5ers weren't there to cause trouble. I'm glad they stayed home! or at the rack track...

Pictures up soon, I won't be spending much time editing them, just gonna throw them up, too much other work piling up.

As for BMWWW(were you in the black e90 lci?) I actually saw you and the orange ford behind you drive by everyone when we stopped at the deli, but there was no way for me to wave you down.

Tom can i even ask what gas milage do you get on that beast!!?? We were going to stop, but seen your pit crew had it all under control! *wave*

Tom
09-17-2012, 01:25 AM
Lol real brutal gas mileage especially since the car cant run lower then 1/4 because of the fuel pumps... kind of annoying which is why I ran out of gas twice... The other 3/4 gas tank I can get about 250-300km cruising with e85 and 30% more with pump gas as e85 burns 30% more fuel especially under WOT lol... ya Hardeep had my back the whole way luckily I have such a GREAT friend!

That was us. *wave* I actually had my eyes peeled for the group, but I must have been looking down navigating... I distinctly remember passing through that little 'village' before the last stretch, and thinking to myself, "Damn stomach, you be huuuungry + dear lord, this picturesque village looks like a perfect place to stop...."
