Sat. 4/18/09 Cruise from NJ to the Pagoda in Reading, PA- GET EXCITED
Day: Saturday 4/18/2009 Rain date: 4/25/09
Location: [COLOR="Red"]TBA: somewhere near Subaru of Morristown[/COLOR]
Cruse to Pagoda in Reading, PA. When I went to Penn State berks this was an amazing place to go to. The Ride up the long windy road was so fun and the view is Super Awesome. On this cruise It will start at 11:30am (don't know where maybe a subaru dealer off 287 or 78 would be good).
There will be two or three stops on this cruise:
One before getting to the Pogata at Premise Maid for Ice-ream and to see the 6ft solid chocolate clock. Where local PA members can meet us at.
Then we will continue our way up to Pagota.
After we took our picture on top of the mountain we will go into Wyomissing for a sandwich at Isaac's they have Super Amazing pretzel bread. From there we can decide if we want to head to the waterfall and lake and take a second photo session or go an a cruise on some windy roads next to the Tulpehocken creek.
To get to Pagota from Morris County about a 2hr drive so gas up. A walky-talky system will be used depending on how big the cruise gets.

[quote=04funwagon;24100596]took the wife, two youngest kids, and my parents that are in town for a couple of days over to Isaac's. First time to eat there for all of us. All I can say is wow! very good food. The kids loved the rainbow bread. can't wait to eat there again on saturday. I can lead the group over from the pagoda if need be now that I know where Isaac's is.[/quote]
[quote=Kitsune;24070712]FYI, I think they finally have the fire tower open for the public. Usually they only open it for special events.
I've been up to the top, spectacular view, make you think you are a regular lord of the land.
Just to make you guys aware, the roads around the Pagoda are indeed awesome, but if it is a nice day out there could be some traffic and pedestrians. A lot of people think its a smart idea to jog or ride their bikes up Duryea Dr, even with all the blind corners. Late at night it is mostly deserted, but the park is right on the edge of the city after all. So just be aware and don't try to set any hillclimb records.
The meeting spot is: [COLOR="Red"]Wallmart 235 Ridgedale Ave, #14, Cedar Knolls, NJ[/COLOR]
