Jim Bishop: Miata cruise set for Sunday

Yes, Virginia, there will be a fall cruise of area Mazda Miata mavens (that’s you!). The date: Sunday afternoon, Sept. 25 (sorry if you already have a conflict).

Once again, participants will assemble at the lonely Waterman Square Shopping Center parking lot, corner of W. Market Street – Rt. 33 west – and Waterman Drive. Please arrive by 12:45 p.m. or earlier to check in, have introductions and receive a few reasonable rules for the road. The fall route will take in a portion of the Skyline Drive from the Swift Gap entrance east of Elkton north to Luray, east on Rt. 211 to New Market and then either US 11 or Rt. 42 south to Harrisonburg, with stops at Big Meadows and Skyland Lodge. The voyage will be held rain or shine, but a warm, sunny day is, of course, preferred.

Please note that there is a $15 entrance fee to Skyline Drive, but those distinguished senior citizens in the group can purchase a lifetime entry permit for only $10, so come prepared. Any snacks, drinks, etc., purchased at Skyland should be the only other expense incurred (as long as drivers show up with a full tank of gas).

Hope you can join in the fun and fellowship on the 25th. Questions? Feel free to contact Jim Bishop at this or home phone number: 540-434-6208.

What have you got to lose (except a few $$ for gas and entrance fee)? Let’s cruise!
