Still very new to the group, what about a group drive to either Carlisle or
Hershey to participate in one of the appropriate car shows?

Looking ahead to our 2022 drive season... We usually have a group drive at
least once a month, and sometimes we'll have a couple in a single month.
Broadly, we do shorter scenic drives lasting between 2 and 4 hours and they
usually include a meal.   We also try to do a couple of "destination" trips
where we'll take  most of a day to go visit a place or something, and we try
and avoid interstates on our way out and back.

In the past, we've had "destination" trips to the Cass scenic railroad, out
to Blackwater Falls, or a tour of lighthouses on the Chesapeake, or a tour
of the Fallingwater house by Frank Lloyd Wright.  We've even taken some
overnight trips, including one to the Watkins Glen racetrack.  We also
normally do a night drive in the summer for stargazing along the Skyline
Drive, and we've had trips to Wallops to watch a rocket launch as well.

Please share your ideas for scenic routes or destinations.   You'll find
this post on our Facebook group as well, so you can reply here or add
something to the thread on Facebook.

Drive safely and HAVE FUN,

Hello, I have what might be considered  strange request, but am wondering if
there is an MX5 guru in the DC vicinity who would be interested in coming
and driving my NC and telling me whether the suspension is performing
normally or not.  It is a stock 2008 hardtop with 40,000 miles and to me it
has a harsh crashy noisy ride with little absorption, yet steering turn-in
is disappointingly vague. The tyres are newish. I had an NC previously and
don't remember it driving like this.  Am worried that if I take it to a
shop, they will just sell me a bunch of upgrades that will not potentially
make much difference. I like driving it, but have little mechanical
knowledge.  Am located in Capitol Hill if someone was inclined to drop by.
Many thanks!
