OK. After over a year of talking about it, it's Ooofficial. The SWSC New England/Poconos 2014 NASSM Bucket List Cruise will be June 7th-22nd. The first Ooofficial day will be Monday, June 9th, so back plan from your location to get to Victor, NY on the 8th for check in. Here's what we got planned:

Victor, NY June 9-11 (Mon-Niagra Falls, Tue-Watkins Glen/WG State Park, Wed-Wineries/Whatever)
Travel to Portsmouth, NH June 12 & 13 (Thu-Ft Ticonderoga & Grand Isles, Fri-Mt Washington & Portsmouth, NH)
Portsmouth, NH June 14-17 (Sat-Maine Hwy 1 & Lobsta, Sun-Concord/Lexington, Laundry & Lobsta, Mon-Further up 1 & Mo' Lobsta, Tue-Boston Freedom Trail & Lobsta Overload)
Travel to Poconos June 18
Poconos NASSM June 19-22

We are planning on invading Canada while we're at Niagara, so if you want to go, make sure that you have a passport.

Here's what I'm looking at for hotels. Since we've found out from a couple of hotels up there that we're not big enough to be a 'group', we gotta make individual reservations. What I've been looking at are Best Western Plus hotels. Not the best, not the worst, just a known quantity. The rates are better at bestwestern.com instead of using the individual hotel websites. Keep in mind that some rates are nonrefundable, so take a close look at it before you book. June is a long way off.

BW+ 1009 Doyle Ave, Cave City, Kentucky CI-6/7 CO-6/8 $76
BW+ 7449 New York 96, Victor, NY CI-6/8 CO-6/12 $72-80
BW+ 45 Blush Hill Rd, Waterbury, VT CI-6/12 CO-6/13 $112
BW+ 580 U.S. 1 Bypass Portsmouth, NH CI-6/13 CO-6/18 $90-100

If anyone in the local area wants to come play, we'd lurv to meet you.

For those who haven't made a SWSC Bucket List Trip, the Ooofficial Itinerary is what mrs stuck and I are planning on doing. Your results may vary. If there something you want to do or a place you want to stay that is different; Have at it and if it's better than what we have planned, we might go, too. Bottom line: It's your money, it's your time, it's your car, do as little or as much as you want.

So, let's have a good time, shall we? Tricorn hats for all my friends!!! :woo:

Maps will be put up on the BBQ when I get around to it. If you want access, please PM me your user name and a good email addy.:D

I will have to come and say hi to who ever stays at the Best Western since its only less then a mile from my house here in Portsmouth NH . There is a lot of construction on rt1 right now so next year will probably be better for you. Sounds like somebody wants lobster :)

That would be outstanding. We'll PM you our contact info once this gets a little closer. Thanks for the heads up on the road construction and any recommendations for local restaurants would be greatly appreciated.:thumbs:
If things work out, we'll be caravanning from Portsmouth to NASSM with KRONUS.

This was a picture i took a few years ago at the Chapel that sits on the grounds around the Fuller Gardens. The ocean is visible in the background as this sets off the rt. that goes along the coast.

Ya' know, with the winter we're having, that's a legit question. However, mrs stuck gave me the Teutonic Eyebrow and let me know that if we need to get snow chains, we're STILL going... :lol:
