I'm in.

However, I can meet you guys on the way down to Captree.
I could meet you on the side of the LIE or Northern State Pkwy (depending on which way you come).

I guess I will miss one of my best dream times that morning.

So as Brett (bboomer) suggested we should do a northeast M meet.

I suggest we all meet at Bloomingdales in white plains and do a run out to captree (long island) for the car meet that happens every sunday. Usually plenty of exotic cars there although quite a bit of american muscle also. The ride there will be tons of fun assuming we meet up early enough. Therin lies the problem, for this to really be fun we should depart Bloomies no later than 6am so we would have to meet up at 5:30-545. Who is in? I say once we get to captree we hang out for a bit and then we can all go grab a late breakfast and bullshit for a bit.
Anthony,
At that hour (or even @ 7AM) - it will only take you guys 35 or 40 minutes to get to Captree.
8AM is a good time to get to Captree - since I think it starts getting really crowded after 9AM.
What do you think?

Your right, I would still like to meet early and we can do the drive past captree at maybe go to rt 27 heading out east and then turn around and go to captree to be there for 8. The fact that everyone is cool with meeting so early means we can really have some good clean fun. I want to do more driving with everyone than just the 35 min sprint to captree. I didnt realize it was so close. So I will take out a map when I have some downtime tomorrow and try to finalize a route. 6am will stay the departure time though and eventually we will end up at captree.

That sounds like fun.
I'm only asking to figure out what time I should meet up with you guys here on the LIE or N. State Pkwy.
Don't forget to call me on my cell to let me know when you're leaving White Plains.
I figure at that hour in the AM it should take you guys no longer than 20 minutes to reach my area - Great Neck/Roslyn.
Also let me know if you're planning on taking the LIE or N. State Pkwy.
This sounds like it's gonna be fun!!

No problem Brett. Please PM me your cell as I do not have it. Also to everyone else on the run, if I do not have your cell numbers please PM them to me as people tend to get seperated on these runs and it is good for at least one person to be able to get in touch with everyone else.

Will as the odd man out without an M car, on the straightaways do you mind being the spotter once or twice? Also if Ed says his car sounds like yours I am looking forward to hearing it. This is turning into quite a meet for such short notice guys!

Will, where the hell you been, man? My car sounds like yours now:)
I've been busy with work man. Don't tell me your running straight pipes now!j/k:haha:. I got a new car too, a 07 300c srt8 in red. My exhaust is currently stock so your car will be waaaaaaaaaay louder than mine. But, I will be installing high-flow cats on saturday and a custom exhaust the following weekend.:cool2:

Do you know if any guys will be meeting at the rest stop off the southern state pkwy?

Its easy, on one or two straight parts of the road which I will scout out before hand the few speed demons we have will slow down while one or a few cars continue at normal speed to check for any LEOs hiding and once your at the end of the road you radio back that its clear and the rest of us can open the cars up a bit without fear of being arrested:D

Alright guys I just did the google map. about 130 miles to captree if I had to guess, leaving at 6am we should hopefully get there around 8am and get to park our cars. We are taking the long route for sure but some amazing roads that are well paved with lots of straight bits. I will PM you all the link to the map later this week.

Also Neil you can meet us on our way through LI you dont have to be at the bloomies start point which should give you some extra sleep.
