    Default NOVA Cow COuntry Cruise

    VIRGINIA-MARYLAND-DELAWARE REGION
    NOVA COW COUNTRY CRUISE

    Cruise Details: Herd about the Cow Country Cruise? Our route will be similar to the NOVA Fall Cruise of last year, but this time we’re adding a leg that the Ferrari Club discovered. You’ll enjoy some udderly beautiful scenery and steer twisty fun roads in the foothills of the Blue Ridge as we mooove through Cow Country. This year we start at Ourisman Dodge in Chantilly. They will have their Viper Tech on hand to answer questions and will provide a light breakfast of donuts, coffee, and juice prior to the cruise. A map along with detailed driving instructions, mile markers, and restaurant information will be provided. We’ll end the cruise at FuddRuckers in Ashburn. Beef will be served.

    When: Saturday, June 28 2008

    Time: Cruise – Meet and greet at 10 AM, Departing at 10:30
    Lunch - 12:30 PM, restaurant FuddRuckers of Ashburn.

    Cost: $5.00 Lunch will be provided, alcoholic beverages are individual responsibility.

    Meeting Place:

    Ourisman Chantilly Dodge
    4105 Auto Park Circle
    Chantilly, VA 20151.

    From the Dulles Toll Road or the Greenway, take Rt 28 South to US 50 West.
    From I-66 take Rt 28 North to US 50 West.
    On Rt 50 West, go to third stop light, turn left on Stonecroft Blvd, then the first right at Auto Park Circle. You’ll see Ourisman Dodge at the corner of Stonecroft and US 50.

    Note: Our route goes through Middleburg where we will make a pit stop about 25 minutes into the cruise. If you need fuel prior to the cruise, from Rt 28 go east on Rt 50 approx mile.

    In the event of rain, the cruise will be cancelled, but not the lunch. Feel free to come in your daily driver.

    Sounds good. Maybe you can also cut/paste this in the VCA Events section. I am not sure everyone checks out the VA/MD region section.

    I'm not going to be able to make it tomorrow. A guy in my neighborhood passed away on Thursday. Funeral starts at 10 am Saturday. Sad story, 42 years old, 3 kids, ages about 11 to 16, this was stomach cancer, he's been lingering for a year. Two daughters, one son, son is the youngest. Dad was a minor car freak of the Mustang GT convertible variety, so I'm guessing the kids may like cars too. I plan on asking all of them if they would like to take a ride in an 08 ACR anytime soon.
    So my Viper day may turn out pretty ok too.
    I will miss you guys though, have fun and be careful on that back road, it might not be a fox like last year that gave up it's life to the Snake Speed Parade. It might be something bigger. Hit a bear or deer on that road and you would be done. No where to go but into the trees.
    Dan and Kelly will take care of you all as far as the details. Do have fun.

    Great time today. I hope everyone enjoyed the cruise (except for the rain there at the end) and the food.

    If anyone knows or finds out the outcome of the "unexpected stop" of the SRT w/ the wing, can you let me know?

    If anyone got good pictures today, I'd be happy to put them up on the club site's gallery, just let me know!

    Lee, Sorry about your neighbor and sorry you couldn't join us for the fun. Everyone enjoyed it except for the Gen 1 guys with no tops when it rained and the one guy pulled over by a cop (no word on if he was ticketed but we weren't going too crazy and he got released fast so maybe not). This time no critters bought the farm.

    Lee, you would be proud of the Bean. He was almost boring at times. No crazy speeds or stunts.

    Glad you guys had fun. What's the deal with the unexpected stop of the SRT with the wing? Kelly, glad to see Harry could drive today instead of Voldemort. How many cars?

    I had so much fun. It was the best ride, its only my second time riding with you guys. My son loved it also.
    Yes, I'm the guy with the winged SRT10 that was stopped by the nicest POLICEMAN. He said he knew that we were following each other but that I was going 70, I thought I was going at least 90! He told me to drive careful. By that time you guys were gone. I felt guilty about driving fast after I said I would drive slow, so we drove back home and took the wife to a late lunch.
    I had the best time and cant wait to hang with you guys again including Lee with that bad ACR.

    I am *soooooooo* glad that you didn't get ticketed!!!!!!

    It was nice to meet you and your son. Such a great group of people today. I'd love to do more group driving events like this in NoVA.

    I hope you can attend the Maryland fall cruises later this year, they're a blast!

    I think we had 15 cars leaving the dealership, including a Ferrari 360 (driven by a club member!), a Porsche, and one wicked SRT-8 Charger. It was a GREAT turnout!

    The rain sucked. It was wonderful sitting at the traffic light in Leesburg getting rained on while other people in traffic had a look of shock on their faces. I hit rain twice on the way home.

    So the last two times I have driven my car I have hit rain three times. Not good odds thus far.

    I'm glad you had fun, glad you came with us, and WAY HAPPY you didn't get a ticket. Kelly and I briefly discussed stoping and waiting, but I've heard that that can often lead to more cars getting ticketed and that wouldn't have helped you.

    Sorry you didn't make it to lunch and we hope to see you again soon.

    Haahahahahaahahhaahahahaha......Too bad I'm gonna be in Seattle during the pig-roast or I'd demand a rematch (after shoving all the pig hooves in your exhaust pipes.)

    Thanks for letting me try your coupe on for size....that thing fit me like a glove.

    You have any plans to put it on the 1/4 mile and see what it'll do?

    Kelly, All,

    I really enjoyed the event. Lots of great cars, a fun route, and a good lunch. I enjoyed meeting everyone and I wish I had been able to make other events with the Club -- I've been a member for 3 years and between my schedule, family stuff, weather, work, etc. this is the first event I was able to make. Too bad it was 3 weeks AFTER I sold my 2002 Final Edition. Yep, I'm the guy with the Italian car. . .sure was fun keeping company on the twisty roads with some serious Amerian iron!

    Hope to see everyone at the next event.

    Liked running with you yesterday, your car was very closeup in the mirror. If wider roads I probably would have been in yours.

    Kelly - Meant to ask you if your Seattle travel plans had changed. If your going solo to Seattle your wife and son are more than welcome out here for the pig roast. It's going to be a family friendly event thing, horsehoes, RC cars etc.....

    Inspite of us having to go extra slow so that Italian car could keep up, I'm glad you came along, Jerry. Hope to see you at the next event and maybe even the Ferrari day at Summit, July 21.

    The whole family is heading to Seattle. My sister is a Navy officer taking command of a unit at the Naval base out there, so we're all going out for the change of command ceremony. Kinda wish we were gonna be home though, the Pig Roast sounds like it's gonna be fun.

    Dan, yeah, yeah. . .I don't recall seeing your brake lights. Oh right, that's 'cause I was way in front! That diesel really helps with the HP. In all seriousness, I really did appreciate your hospitality and had a great time! I haven't decided about the Summit track event, but will let you know once I decide. Thanks again and hope to see you next time.
