I was thinking about the same thing for here.
I just got back from Mt. Washington, that is a nice road up to the top, I wish I had the 510 with me. You guys should try that.

Special tip-o-the-hat to nathan for coming so far to be with us. I was so worried I would be the only 620. As it was, I was the thorn among the roses, anyway. Nice truck, nathan! Nice to meet all of you, thank's for including me, I had fun

Mt. Washington was paved about (9?) years ago, but even before, I always wondered about a hill climb on the gravel. There's an 18% grade at the start, and the smell of burnt brakes.

Yah, I have not driven my car since Dyno day. It must be nice to have a good selection of roads available. We have driven everything over here, and have to go WAY out of town to get out of major traffic. I would love to to the Gold River/Myra falls route again, in a car that handles. Damn ferries.

Lou, I'm down for the Goldstream run. We tried this last year, but some people nixed it because they figured it was too dangerous, but I'm willing. Would it be an evening or weekend deal? I'm just going to throw this out there, maybe next summer we should try and organize a group cruise with some of you mainlanders up to Gold River that includes some camping and sight seeing. We could make a weekend of it. Just a thought. I should have my 5 speed in by then. Scott

I would definatley be in for a campout/cruise next year at Buttle Lake. That is a really nice campground there. I camped there for years every summer. If there were enough, we might be able to get the group campsite.

Just got back from camping at Manning Park, really made me think a camp-out with the 510 club would be more than fun. I took this picture of my 34 year old Coleman stove. It had a generator failure 10 years ago, and majorley caught fire. I sand blasted it, and had it powder coated the same Coleman green, and totally restored it. I think of it as: WHEN MOTOR HEADS CAMP.

For sure a 510 club Campout would be much fun,so i think we need to maybe try and figure out a weekend that works for most,but you must bring the stove to cook up some fast breakfast right :wink: 8)
