    OK guys, it is that time again, to start planning for our New Year's cruise. I have already written the directions for our path, which will be, I hope, slightly different than last year's. I will be posting the directions for our new path, with maps highlighting the routs we are taking, which Steve Baker will prepare and put them on the CACC web site, once I give him the go ahead. Please, respond to this thread stating if you will be going on this cruise, this is very important in order to advise the restaurant how many of us will be having lunch.As far as restaurant, we will again be ending up at Kylroy's as we did last year. Chipper did check the restaurants close to the Capitol's parking lot, and one of them will not be open on New Years day, and the other requires a guarantee expenditure of $1,500, so, I DON'T THINK SO, therefore, we'll end up at Kylrois. Stay tuned, I we will post the maps and directions of our rout.
    Thank you, and a very Merry Christmas to all of you!

    PLEASE, ADD YOUR NAME TO THE LIST !!

    COME THE HELL ON!! LETS GO, PUT YOUR NAMES DOWN!!!!

    I very much regret, I will not be able to join you in this great day. In NJ still, I have been diagnosed with “light case of pneumonia “, which started with a bad cold, courtesy of my grand kids. I will continue to fallow this, and help in any way possible. Please, would some good soul print the description of the path, and maps for Jack Goering, and give it to him at Cooper School. I thank you very much.

    CHIPPER, DID YOU SECURE KYLROIS FOR US, I'M SURE YOU HAVE, JUST MAKING SURE.

    Hector, Not sure why you missed a couple of names, so I added them on the list. Again, I've got your back! You can thank me later.

    Looks like Scott's map has us going up Canal and crossing Chain Bridge to 123N to GWPkwy to 495. Are we doing that or going up Canal which turns into Clara Barton to 495?

    The map is incorrect. It should show our path on Canal Rd, which turns into Clara Barton, all the way to Cabin John bridge and 495 South

    Bill, I did offer my sit to Dan Deitz, however it looks as if he is riding with Larry White, if Larry is going. If he is not using it, it is yours.

    You are correct. Steve Baker worked out the maps, hopefully he will see this thread, and correct the map. Again, thanks for covering my back.

    1 Overview part 1.jpg

    Hanes Point to Tilden (Rock Creek Park) back to Wisconsin to 495 to Kilroys.
    2 Overview part 2.jpg

    Do most of you guys also run without a top? It is looking like it is going to be very cold. We plan on bundling up.

    9AM projected temp 17 degrees. Wind chill 4 degrees. Driving 60 mph into the wind equates to a wind chill of -14 degrees. Are you F'ing kidding me!
