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.
