We are taking a cruise up mount Washington on Saturday 09/28, we will be meeting at the McDonalds in the Epsom traffic circle at 8:00AM and driving up rt28 to rt16 to Gorham and going up the auto road.
The trip takes around 2.5hrs to get to the base of the mountain from Epsom, The ride up the mountain is a slow one taking around 45min to go just over 7 miles (round trip). The drive down is also slow using 2nd gear to keep the speed low. We will most likely stop for lunch at some point on this trip.
*** Yes old VWs are allowed to go up the auto road, but you would obviously you would want to be sure your car is in good working order for this trip, (Adjust your brakes, look over everything, Maybe even change the oil before the trip. There are pull offs all the way along the auto road and each car will go at its own pace and we'll meet up at the top. http://mtwashingtonautoroad.com/
If anyone would like to go but does not feel comfortable driving their VW up you are welcome to come along in your regular car or go along for the cruise and wait at the bottom of the mountain.
