New Glarus Drive, September 2012

Nine years we've been doing a Fall drive on Wisconsin county roads, and it's still as delightful as ever.   This year eleven drivers and seven passengers made for our traditional destination, lunch at the New Glarus Hotel. The weather was perfect, and the cars ran flawlessly.

One lesson learned by a third of the participants was that driving to Beloit the day before and staying in a motel definitely beats leaving home before dawn.  Why did we not think of this years ago?

Once again, the club owes a big thank-you to Eric Smith for making our premier driving event a reality.
