I was thinking of having another Hamilton Cruise, and was interested to see if/how many of you would like to come out. I was looking at Saturday, July 28 as a possible date, with the meet starting around 6-7pm.

The cruise will consist of a short meet beforehand, to say hello, and pass out directions. There is also ice cream, drinks, etc... available for those who are interested. This will take place down on the beach strip in Hamilton, @ Hutch's. The first leg of the cruise takes us into Burlington, Waterdown, Hamilton, Dundas, and Ancaster. ALL of this is backroad twisties type driving, taking us up and down the escarpment. This leg takes around 45 mins to an hour, driving reasonably. Key here is reasonably!

Our first stop is for something to eat. I have a place already chosen which can accomodate us, as long as the #s don't get huge. We'll allot around 45mins to an hour here. They should have something to please just about everybody, and the service is quick.

The second leg is fairly short, and takes us directly across the city, right through the downtown core. This is part of the cruise where we will make an impression if the numbers are sufficient. We will cover basically the whole "strip" in Hamilton. This part is also mainly to please the attention whores, and to get to the location of the start of the third leg.

A quick stop for gas at Sunoco, and we're off on the 3rd leg. There is also a Countrystyle for coffee. The third leg is around an hour, and will take us towards Niagara Falls ...all along the backroads, with scenic vistas overlooking the city. From here, there are multiple possibilites. We can continue to the Falls (maybe the Casino, or a drive along the Niagara River, or visit Clifton Hill), or go to the Drive-in in Thorold to see a movie. ...Or the cruise can just end with coffee... the choices are pretty open to suggestion, and ultimately will be decided by interest.

Anyway, this thing is basically already planned out, and the route is mapped... is anybody even interested in attending??? I can promise you some [B]very[B] good twisties, excellent overlooking views, camera shoot locations, good food, etc... basically a good time in general.

Post comments, suggestions, etc.. and we'll go from there. *wave*

I don't think we're going to get many people out for a 7am start. Jeez...I don't get home from the Woodbridge meets on Friday nights until 3-4 am. I need to get atleast a little sleep...:P

Just come out, and do some cruising...We won't be out that late, likely back to Hamilton by 12-1 am.

Can't wait!!!!

I know its going to be good. Might run the cruise a few times just in anticipation.

SNAKES AND LADDERS!!!!! Then Turn 10 in the first half

Come on out guys, we drive there to the bridge all the time come out to Hammer for a change.

If you change the time to 7am, I might be 12hrs late. would you guys mind waiting till I get there?

You guys got rubber? In Hamilton we dont have rubber. We chain hookers to the rims. You get better grip with the sloppy taco. Granted you have to be carefull in the rain, they will slip.

Hey Dave... why do you always have to pick the weekends that Rj and I are away??? Sheesh!

I'll answer that.

This is not about Rommel we like him, but you melady have cooties. Hence why we never book it on weekends your avail. So you and your cooties can stay in the Anacter!!!! If you see Rommel tell him to come out, but without you. HAHAHAHAHAHA*uzi*

PS. Why do you have a pic of a Micro Machine E36 in your sig? must be tough to cruise around in eh?

I won't post the route on a public forum...for semi-obvious reasons, but my cell # is (905) 981 5895. The name is Dave.... Just give me ring when you're finished up your business, and we'll come by and meet up with you. It's very likely we won't actually get started until about 7:30-8 pm anyway. We always seem to leave a little late....

Hope to hear from you...... *wave* Dave

07-23-2007, 01:04 PM
****UPDATE****

I just checked the forecast, and we're looking at 27 degrees and sunshine for Saturday.*th-up* Wash the car, and come on out for some cruising!

Anyway, I've driven the route a few times, made a few improvements, corrected a detour, etc... The handouts are just about finished, and will be distributed right before we leave Hutch's on Saturday... I'm looking at a 6:30pm start time, leaving Hutch's for 7:00ish. We will eat by 8-8:30 if we stay on schedule.

We are ultimately going to end up in Niagara Falls, but I still need some suggestions on what everyone wants to do once we get there. We have a few options... and I can finish up the directions once the final destination is chosen.
1. Casino for gambling, rooftop photoshoot and Midnight Buffet
2. Clifton Hill for amusements, view of the Falls, etc...
3. Cruise along the Niagara River Expressway into Fort Erie.
4. Butterfly Conservatory for a quick run, and cruise back along the river through Niagara on the Lake.

Some Suggestions...

a. Show up with a full tank of gas... I will post the location of the nearest gas stations for those that need to top up. This will save us time, and avoid a bunch of unplanned stops.

b. Bring FRS radios if you have them/can borrow them. They're helpful for communication road hazards, police, detours, etc... I'll see if I can bring an extra one or two, but don't count on it.

c. Have a handful of cash with you. I'm not talking about hundreds of dollars here, but have some actual cash on hand. The stop for dinner doesn't take debit/credit cards. Besides... it's always quicker to pay with cash when you have a large group placing orders, and ten people lining up for the ATM just slows everything down.

d. Bring a camera if you like...you never know when a photo opportunity will arise!


Directions to Hutch's and Closest Gas Stations

From the West

Take the 403 west, and take the QEW Niagara cutoff. Follow this over the Skyway bridge, and take the Centennial Pkwy exit. At the lights on Centennial, make a left turn, go OVER the highway, towards the lake. You will run into a 3-way intersection, this is Van Wagner's. Make a left, and follow it along the water. Hutch's will be on your right hand side. If you need gas, take a right instead of a left on Centennial Pkwy. There is a Sunoco, Pioneer, and Petro-Canada about 2 blocks up. Backtrack from there.

From the East

Take the QEW Toronto, and exit on the Centennial Pkwy exit. This will put you onto Confederation drive. At the first lights you come to, continue straight through the intersection, and Confederation will become Van Wagner's Beach Road. Follow Van Wagner's along the water. Hutch's will be on your right side. If you need gas, take a left at the first lights, instead of going straight through. This is Centennial Pkwy. Gas Stations are 2 blocks up the road. Back track on Centennial, and make a left on Van Wagner's to get back.

Anyway, I hope to get some more feedback on the final destination for the night, and possibly an updated list of those who will be attending. That way I know what to expect, and can foresee any issues. If anyone has any issues, or concerns, don't hesitate to post or send me a PM.

BTW*** My cell # is (905) 981 5895 if you get lost or something the day of the cruise. Dave*wave*

"4. Butterfly Conservatory for a quick run, and cruise back along the river through Niagara on the Lake."


Im throwing the Kibosh down on this option already. I vote for whichever of the other three wins. As for the conservatory, never again! ill wait outside for you guys to finish. The thought of potentially seeing that tree again makes me ill. :puke:

A cruise around lundys lane and cliffton hill??? Genraly quite a few cars out showing off so we would deffanitly make a impression. Maybe then we can stop at a place along the lane ... grab a few red bulls hang and watch the cars go by.. say hi to the honeys ...and shoot the shit?

Kev I know it can be misleading when it has the word "pump" in it, but I thought you knew enough about cars to know better. I heard about how you got it all "gummed" up. Kev has the pump feaver*love* keep him away from the vacuums boys.

Iím sure it will be clear by the time we get to cruising, may rain in the am thou.

Did you get wet mapping those stages out?

And do you mean enjoy like; cream the pants? Or enjoy like; I love trees and must be part of one?*wiggle*

Letís just try to keep the fun clean buddy!!!! and donít forget your protection........






.....thatís right never forget your seatbelt or in your case Harness. I heard once that not wearing it can lead to STD's. All I know is it leads to a ticket. but maybe on the second offence they give you herpes, or at least it will feel like they did.

*wave* thanks to everyone that came out*th-up* we can do it again anytime...maybe soon if there's interest. Anyway, I hope you guys (and Gal) enjoyed the route. It's too bad we had to reroute because of that road block...it was some of the better roads on the course. Dave*rockout*
