Goethals Bridge Mini-Meet
« on: June 20, 2017, 09:05:22 AM »

In a week and a half, I'll be hosting a mini-meet to drive over the first half of the new Goethals Bridge (I-278) that just opened.  While we're at it, we'll see the new HOV lane on the Staten Island Expressway (I-278) and the construction currently in progress on the Bayonne Bridge (NY 440/NJ 440), the Wittpenn Bridge (NJ 7), and the Pulaski Skyway (US 1/US 9).  The Facebook page for the meet is available at https://www.facebook.com/events/1923648347917286/.

Saturday, July 1.  Exactly location still TBD, but it will most likely be in Linden or Rahway.

Also known as the hangover meet, because most of the attendees should have one.

I've listened many times, and I still can't figure out what the fox says.

I'm a "very likely", because I'll be in the area anyway

Well that may just mean if I come that I might have some time to walk laps at the restaurant.   :-D

I'm in. I'll be close regardless, so may as well spend some time with fellow roadgeeks.
