Really need to get my Elise up to NH someday. I'd be tempted to come this weekend, but going the other way to LOG.
Enjoy the ride, it sounds great.
@GTH452 maybe you should think about joining this drive.

MOAT Mt. Smokehouse and brewery. Great choice! I’m still 3 weeks out from having the car back together, otherwise I’d join you.

Count me in please 👍
If/when you firm up where and when to meet - driving from Gardner MA area.
Great, that's 4 cars already. Will be a good day. Since you are coming from Gardner, we could meet at Pressed on Spit Brook Road in Nashua. It's on the way for cv and me, and you can take backroads in the same amount of time as 2/495/3.

Including me, at least 6 now 7 Lotus. From Tilton until we finish in Ashland we will not drive on any interstates. We will be on some of the most notable roads in NH the entire drive.

It's one of the longer drives but not nearly among our longest. The longest have had us meeting for breakfast north of the white mountains, starting points in Vermont, etc.

Great drive today! Had a lot of fun, caught some air a couple times, mild heart attack nothwithstanding it was awesome 👍🤣
Bummed we had to cut out early, hope the rest of the drive was smooth for everyone! And thank you for putting all that together @Keeper (Shawn/Sean, apologies on spelling).

What a great day! Nice to meet some new faces and definitely great to see old friends!! Weather, route and food was perfect! We had a couple of scares on the ride home going down 93 with the dozen or more or motorcycles ripping very high speeds down the highway and then the one lost sole who decided to walk out on the highway in front of Shawn just before the "S" turns

in Manchester, how you didn't pick him off is beyond me! He definitely had an angel with him running across that highway! LOL

Good thing Lotus stop fast. That guy almost died. He could not run across the highway as fast as he thought.
