    @no mufflers that's my plan, rolling in on the 11th and leaving out mid morning on the 16th.

    I have seen the iconic bumper stickers "This car climbed Mount Washington", but I was not too familiar with the details.
    I figured it was steep, and I have my doubts if I could get up the hill without the transmission having heat stroke.

    So I was looking at the specifics for the drive.

    The highlights for those who are not familiar:
    Average grade of 12%, extended sections of 18%, and the last 100 yards are 22%.
    The road is currently open to the tree line (alt. 4200 feet) which is a 4.5 mile drive. (so no 22% finale)
    There are no guardrails.

    Regarding what is allowed.. You can read all the restrictions here:
    https://mt-washington.com/drive-yourself/auto-road-vehicle-restrictions

    Some notable ones:
    DUALIES are NOT allowed,
    max width including mirrors: 88 inches
    No pickups with permanent additions that extend wider than the cab (campers, rack bodies, or very wide mirrors).

    So now I know... It's steep and narrow.

    @LadyGoose I think I remember our daughters have close birthdays, want to do a little cake or something? Lucie's is the 9th. Out here they're still just doing drive by beep parties so it's kind of a bummer for the kids with Covid birthdays. I was thinking bring something as an excuse for more cake haha

    I have to get all this done so I can do my clutch before rally!!

    Good info! I had checked recently and the summit is open so 6,200 ft elevation. If they post it as closed it's due to weather and the dirt road gets rough.

    @no mufflers we will be there on Saturday. We are leaving friday night driving most of the way and stopping to sleep. We should be there relatively early on Saturday. After the camper is set up I'm going to Vermont for a few hours. I'm going to visit my LTs grave site.

    @Danielle my daughter's birthday is July 9th I would love to have a cake there.

    Well, I REALLY hate to do this. It makes me physically ill actually. After a LOT of discussion, the wife and I have decided we need to cancel. It sucks but it’s the right thing for us to do. @no mufflers I’ve been dying to see the northeast since you hosted the first time. I hope we will get the chance again.

    I hope you guys and gals have a great time. Post lots of pictures.

    Here’s hoping things are better next year.
