We are taking the New York State Thruway to Albany and then south on I 87 to the Massachusetts Turnpike I 90 heading east to 495 north to connect up with 95 north on into Portsmouth,NH.According to Mapquest it is a 6 hour drive to Albany and from there in it is another 5 hours to Portsmouth.It would be better if we contacted each other at the hotels as soon as we get there.I have no clue what time we would get there.Mapquest says 6.6 hours to the sevice centre but that does not include other stops as well.See you there. Ted,Sia,Sean and Mark.

Wouldn't the 401 to montreal be quicker.?

How long does it take to get to montreal from T.O?

We're thinking of going from ottawa to montreal the cut over to the 93 which goes down to highway 4 right to portsmouth.

Heading up to Montreal is adding time to our trip.I did this once going down to New Jersey.Went across at Gananoque and headed south from there.It added 2 extra hours to the trip because i went northwest and then south.Mapquest say 5 hours and 7 minutes from Montreal to Portsmouth.We'll meet you there Saturday.

I'm in, hey Ted is the meeting time and place still the same?? Timmy's & Sunoco gas bar at the Ontario St. exit on the QEW at around 4:30 - 4:45am Saturday morning??

Hound

yes sir that would be the place. maybe i will see you on the road, i plan to leave around 3:30ish not sure how long it'll take for me to get there and seeing as though there will be little if no traffic you and i may be some of the only ones on the road. what kind of car do you got? I will be in the new 5 series 530i with 18's titanium silver on black and no tint. lemme know what your driving and i will keep an eye out. either that or if you'd like to cruise there together you can drop by my place say around 3:30-3:45 and we can head out together up to you if your interested. i am at 281 Wilson St. W.

there is a light by the road and a black iron fence on either side of the driveway and xenon like lights on the house itself. black acura tl plate RSX TYPS and the bimmer in the driveway. if you do want to meet, not sure which way you would take but i am just east of the wilson st. exit on the 403 and a block and a half from the fire hall, which is at the traffic circle, on the same side as the fire hall.

sorry for the long post, glad that another bimmer is joining the group and look forward to meeting you. I'm Sean by the way.

Cheers

P.S have you booked your room yet, if not be sure to do that. the cheapest i found was on the comfort inn site on there you can acctually get the same rate as for 50+ and caa/aaa members, with the "internet user" deal when you go to book. just something i thought i'd mention

anyone else planning on comming along. also paul are you still wanting to roll with me or are you comming with the G.A. or protoge, or maybe not at all. lemme know, i wont be at this friday's meet cause i'll be going to bed early to wake up to go. if you do come with us can you possibly get a ride with one of the others to st. cath, or do you need me to pick you up if so bimmerpwr i may not be able to cruise down with you.

Hey Sean, I'm coming up the 401, then HWY 6 south to Hamilton, and then 403/QEW towards St. Catherines. I'm not very familiar with that area, so if you'd like to meet we'll have to meet somewhere close to the highway, that is if you're not picking Paul up. If you are we can just meet up at the Timmy's...

I drive a silver E36 on silver 18's...

How's the drive down to Portsmouth, is it fairly smooth road??

You got a PM

Hound
09-25-2005, 07:41 PM
hey bimmerpwr, yea thats cool man alrighty i know the route your taking and the best place to meet would be at the timmies at clapisons corners (spelling?) there is a petro can and a wendy's/timmies or the right hand side. unless I need to grab paul how bout we meet there around 4ish cause i figure with such light traffic the drive to st. cath's is gonna be about the same ammount of time from there as it will be for the guys comming from oakville maybe a bit less but we will proly be there at the same time or a bit before. if you think that we would need more time to get there let me know by posting on here when you think a good time would be to meet up.

Hey Sean and Florin.Here is the correct location of the meeting place.It is the Ontario Street(Route#18) exit #64 that goes into Beamsville.This exit is 20 minutes and 34 KM from where the 403 connects up to the QEW to Fort Erie.Don't get off at the first Ontario Street exit because you will get lost on that one.The one you want to get off at has a Sunoco gas bar,Timmy's and a Wendy's.It will be on your right hand side as you get off on the exit.You can see it from the highway.See you there around 445am Saturday morning.

Hound
09-26-2005, 01:01 PM
alrighty then see you there i am pretty sure that this is the exit right after the bridge that you cross that has the lions or w/e in the middle i will proly drive down there tonight just to see exactly where it is and how long it will take. Florin you still game to meet at the timmies?

Ted in T.O.
09-26-2005, 08:36 PM
Sean.This is way before you even get to St'Catherines.It is one of the Grimsby exits.This exit is only 10 minutes east of the Centenial Parkway exit as you are heading towards Fort Erie.Pm me if you are still not sure which one it is.Ted

09-26-2005, 10:24 PM
Hey Sean, we can meet up at Timmy's (Dundas & Hwy 6 south) at around 3:45am, and then drive down to the other Timmy's to meet up with Ted and the rest of the group. If the exit to Ontario St. is right off of the QEW, we should be able to find it no problem.

Just an idea.??

Meet at bavauto for 10pm saturday night.. I think we should get there by 7 or 8 pm

Hound
09-29-2005, 02:27 AM
aight sorry i got confused, i know where this is and it's only maybe 20 or so minutes away from the timmies that we are meeting at so we will have lots of time to grab a coffee or w/e at the first timmies and then head on to the next one. i will see you @ 3:45am. looking forward to this :D

bimmerpwr
09-29-2005, 09:13 PM
Ok Sean, sounds good, i'll see you there.

How many people are going anyway, I see 8 voted as being interested, but as far as I know there's only 4 or so...

Hound

*yawn* im up now, couldn't sleep, it's 1am went to bed at 7 last night neways i will see you in a bit florin and not sure if there are more going or not. hope so cause that would be great *th-up* i also took a drive on wednesday to see exactly where the exit is and im glad i did because i had the wrong one in mind. i know where it is and it took me 25 minutes from the top of the hill to there in heavy traffic so we will have lots of time to get there. the trees around there make it hard to see the place from the hwy but it is the second ont street exit and just a bit past the sign for Lincon Township.
