Scenic fall color tour

In one of my other car clubs the wife and I like to take a group or other drivers and go far a drive on Sunday's. This year we have set aside the dates of Oct 3rd and 17th. We follow a route down to Wabasha and hit some of the wonderful twisty roads in SE Wisconsin working our way to Eau Claire for the return to the cities. We leave at 9am and cross the boarder back to Minnesota around 5pm.

Post up if anyone is interested.

As a side note if you plan to bring a passenger make sure they do not get car sick. In the past there have been people who became ill after the driver failed to heed the passengers warning that she was not feeling well.

Matt

OK so we are a little less than two weeks away. I am thinking about meeting in St Paul on University Ave. I will post details in a couple of days.

For now is it just the three of us? Michael are you going?

Well it looks like it will be some great weather for the three of us. I might have a couple more people to bring as well.

We are going to meet at the Border books parking lot on the corner of University and Hamline.

Sorry I am going to have to cancel this Sundays drive. To many projects to finish before the snow flies.

Gotcha....

I wanted to say thanks for the first drive. It was an absolute blast and I really enjoyed getting out with some other owners and enjoying the beautiful scenery. The "spirited" driving was a great opportunity to learn more about my car which impresses me more every day.

I really appreciate you taking the time to put that together.

Thanks again.
