Arrow Group Drive: Mt. Washington Auto Road [CONFIRMED]

The group drive on the Mt. Washington Auto Road has been CONFIRMED!

Anyone interested in participating in this event should log into the registration system at http://reg.tdifest.com and edit your registration to add this event. Remember to add it for each person in your party who wants to do the group drive, even if he/she is only a passenger.

Cancellation Policy: We will ONLY cancel the group drive in the event of unsafe weather conditions on the Auto Road, as determined by Auto Road staff.

Restrooms: Restrooms are only available at the base of the mountain. There will be no restrooms available at the summit, as the National Park building will be closed. Please plan accordingly.

Driving Restrictions: Our group will be lead by an Auto Road van and followed by an Auto Road van. The Auto Road encourages everyone to have fun, but please no speeding, showing off, or otherwise acting like a fool. The Auto Road is both challenging and dangerous, and it is not an appropriate place to practice your racing skills. Also keep in mind that the general public will be leaving the mountain (going down) while we are going up, as they are all required to leave the summit at 6:45 PM. I don't know how many people this will be, but be prepared to encounter some traffic as we ascend the mountain. Going down, it will be all ours.

Any questions? Let me know!


----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This poll is to gauge interest in a group drive up to the top of Mt. Washington on Saturday evening for sunset at the summit. Time commitment for this event will be 45 minutes from the hotel to the base of the mountain, 30 minutes up the mountain, about an hour (or more?) at the top of the mountain, 30 minutes back down the mountain, and 45 minutes back to the hotel (or to wherever you decide to go). Total will be around 4 hours on Saturday evening.

Pricing will be $30 per person (even if there are multiple people in one vehicle). It's a little higher than the normal rates, but we will have the entire mountain to ourselves for several hours after they close to the general public. Payments will need to be made through our registration system and will include the associated PayPal fees.

Remember this is still tentative, as I'm waiting to hear back regarding availability. I will know for sure if the road is available for rental by tomorrow. The purpose of this poll is to make sure we have enough people (30 people minimum) to make this happen.

Please respond to the poll in this thread as soon as possible.

Cool

N1DAS & g/f Lisa --> IN for the trip.

Planning to drive the 2014 BMW 535xd up the mountain!

Latest delivery status is the car is on schedule to arrive at the port in NJ on Thursday 8/8 or Friday 8/9 this week. Then it's 5-10 days of waiting for it to arrive at the dealer in NH (Tulley BMW in Nashua NH).

The mountain has confirmed availability and pricing for a 2 hour sunset cruise (sunset is 7:24 PM on the 31st). In order to actually do this, I need to be confident that we can hit 30 people, which means getting more responses to this poll thread as soon as possible.

If you're interested in climbing the Mt. Washington Auto Road for a sunset vista on Saturday, August 31st, please respond to this poll thread.

FYI, we are just over half way to our minimum commitment to doing this as of right now.

After a cursory glance, it appears that you haven't registered for Fest yet. Just a friendly reminder.

Seems like the poll is missing an option:

Yes - I would like be driving someone else's vehicle to the top

I'm in for this.
