THE DATE: Is Saturday June 13th, 2009 with a raindate of Sunday the 14th.

THE CRUISE: Is a day of relaxed cruising in our Mopars around New England. It's a departure from sittin' on your duff at the usual car show. We stop about every hour to stretch our legs, gas up, take photos, talk shop or whatever.. Lunch is a planned stop and the Cruise ends around dinner time, so anyone who wants can dine together too.

- ANYONE IS WELCOME to join the Cruise.
- ANYONE can join or leave the Cruise anytime and anyplace along the way.
- BRING your Mopar, ForwardLook, AMC, Jeep, K-car, Minivan, Ram, DaimlerChrysler - plus family, friends, pets and your positive attitude.
- LEAVE your stress and worries at home.

THE START: On the 13th, we'll meet at 8:00am and get going at 9:00am from North Beach, NH at the intersection of 10th Street and route 1A (aka Ocean Blvd). This is about 1.5 miles north of Hampton Beach, NH. There's plenty of hassle-free parking along the seawall right on route 1A and we'll be easy to spot.

For anyone wanting to come up Friday and stay overnight: PM me! I can help with a good selection of hotels & motels nearby.

- In GENERAL we'll drive across the southern parts of NH, from the coast to Nashua, dip down to MA then up to Jaffrey, NH for lunch. After that we'll cruise around Mt. Monadnock a bit then drive down into MA again, along the CT River and end up somewhere in the Berkshires.
- I'll outline the DETAILS of the route here in this thread in the next week and include specific locations and times of our stops...

A big THANKS :thumb: to all those who have joined us in the past making these Cruises very relaxing, sociable and enjoyable for all!

Post or PM me any Q's you have and I'll respond.
