 Trekking With
After lunch eight cars continued on to the Crystal Springs Resort in Hamburg, New Jersey. Although the resort was only twelve miles away, Sue put togeth- er a terrific 43 mile route which took us on some fantastic and scenic roads. We all checked into our beautiful one bed- room suites and later in the evening we all gathered in our suite for wine and hors d’houvres. We then all adjourned to their tavern for dinner and cocktails. Then, the following morning we all gathered for a lovely buffet breakfast before taking a scenic ride home. I believe I can safely say that a good time was had by all.
As I mentioned, this was the last official trek of the season but Sue and I intend to do a couple of impromptu coffee runs before the weather catches up with us. So please keep checking the website and your e-mail blasts for further information on that.
In the meantime, while we can still eek out those nice weather days, get out there and “keep on trekkin”.

Last Saturday was our final official trek of the season. Thirty one cars with 58 people met at the rendezvous point. Cosi opened an hour early for us so we could be warm, well fed and caffeinated before we depart- ed. It was overcast and quite chilly when we took off so the first half those of us with cabriolets rode with our tops up. Al- though the fall colors were quite muted for this time of year, the roads and scenery were quite beautiful. We drove over the Bear Mountain Bridge and continued on through Harriman State Park and the up Storm King Mountain. We had some real fine curvy roads that required full focus.
After about 90 minutes, we took a 30 min- ute break and then continued on some magnificent roads until we reached our lunch destination; Chateau Hathorn in Warwick, New York. Once there we gath- ered for a group photo and then spent the next two and a half hours socializing over a delicious lunch prepared by a for- mer chef to the French President, Dolph Zuegar. Dolph and his wife Helene have hosted us before and they did not fail to recreate the wonderful experience we had there five years ago.
