UPDATED: Official Mustang Evolution Lake George Meet...2008

Ok, I am throwing this out there to think about for the next little bit. All you NY, NJ, PA, Ohio, MA, etc members...there is a national car show in Lake George, NY labor day week every year. It is called the Adirondack Nationals. The show is bad ***...all classics...tons of cars from around the country in town. From classics to current. Show Car cruise. Fireworks. Amazing scenery. All in all...Good times.

I used to go to this event every year with my car club (Street Machines of Rochester)...it was great. I miss going, so I am looking to see if anyone else in the area might be interested as well?

I'm looking into rough costs for rooms and things of that nature now. I will post up some of those details once I get them. I'd like to stay at the same hotel that my club stays in as they get the entire back side of the hotel to themselves every year...so the lot is all ours. No tourists to worry about banging your car....and it is a mini car show in and of itself each night.

Here are some pics from the club...

Street Machines of Rochester::Lake George

And here is the show's website for those that aren't familiar with it.

The Adirondack Nationals

I'm also going to work on getting a group of us from the south to cruise on up there.....it could be a great meeting of the minds. :beer:

Anyhow...I know it is a year away and all...but I thought I would just do a quick check and get an idea of possible interest.

Unless something major comes up between now and then I plan on attending. This is exactly the kind of vacation I need.

I expect a lot of this answer...which is perfectly understandable...I just want to get it out there and get people thinking about it. In the mean time, I'm working on details so that when it comes time to reserve the rooms...we can get them. They sell out fast. I'll probably hold 3-4 of them in my name and have everyone pay me since it won't cost anything to cancel a room or two once we have a solid head count. That would account for 12-16 people (as far as the front desk is concerned) which should be plenty of space. If not, I'll hold more as it doesn't cost anything to reserve them.

I'd love too, but I can't afford to take that much time off, especially since I will be taking a week in the summer to head to Michigan.

Once it gets closer, we would start deciding that. It would all depend on where everyone was coming from.

I, and hopefuly 2 or 3 others, would be coming from louisiana...I am hoping about 3-4 come from alabama....

Where would you be coming from?

And yes, this trip is killer. The show is great. It is definitely a good time for everyone...specially a car junkie.

Re: Guaging interest in Lake George Meet...2008

We could setup a meeting point around Nashville or something...

But like I said, once it gets closer and we see who all is going...then we can set up the points of interest. Odds are, there will be a couple meetups kind of like our last get together had.

I have driven it several times. It will depend on everyone that is going as to what we do. me, personally, I would prefer just making it in 1 shot. It would be about 19-20 hours from baton rouge with normal gas stops just to get to the buffalo area, and then about 4 hours from there to lake george. However, I believe we are all stopping off in niagara falls to attend a night at the canadian ballet....then heading to lake george.

If the people go that I think will go, we will probably setup one stop around huntsville over night and then head out from there. Otherwise, may up in tennessee if some folks from there decide to go as well. Then, if people from other states decide to come too, we can meet them along the way as we get closer.

I wouldn't be against stopping off on the way...I'm just one for let's go and get there and be done and enjoy ourselves kind of person.

Now, coming back home? There will definitely be at least one stop over. You are never as excited to head home as you are to head there.

Re: Guaging interest in Lake George Meet...2008

Well, I am in touch with my old car club and they get a discounted room rate every year. They don't start taking reservations until the end of january, but once they do I am going to reserve 5 rooms for us. That would be room for 20 people...which should be enough. It's no big deal as long as you give 2 weeks notice, there is no cancel fee.

I know of at least 4 people from baton rouge going...hoping for a good northern turnout.

Since 95% of us that would come wouldn't want to drive our cars in the snow, the odds of that would be small...unless it was just a fly in, but then, what fun is a meet if there are no cars involved?

Sometimes you have to get out of you own back yard and go meet people from other states....it's only distance. Nothing a few hours driving wouldn't fix.

I believe your Lexus is much more metro than my Jeep. And I am not going to be able to go. Too far, too expensive, too much time off work.

Re: Guaging interest in Lake George Meet...2008

I went to Lake George with Rob 2 years ('03 & '04) and absolutely loved it. It's beautiful up there, the mountains surround the lake and there's so much to do (not to mention looking at all the cars, that takes a couple days alone, just walking around at the show). The cars are amazing, the people are a lot of fun and there are some very hot mustangs and it's fun just cruising around and hanging out with everyone. There are parades at night with the classic cars that are fun to watch, and the environment in the hotel parking lots, that's a lot fun too, lol. It's VERY well worth the drive and it would be a fun cruise and good time for everyone getting together. Definitely a great vacation and Niagara Falls isn't far away!!!!!!

Santa is broke too. The killer is the week off. I already have a week planned for some time in June/July. And again, I really can't afford it.
