fall meet idea
#1306850 - 08/26/06 04:53 AM

just had a thought, I am going to try to go to the Essex Steam Train and river boat tomorrow .... was checking the schedule and there is a foliage season from october 4th to the 29th, lasts 2.5 hours with the train and riverboat rides for $26 each

should be able to combine that with some driving ...

I was really hoping someone from CT would step up this year and do the fall meet. It's long overdue IMO.
The train and riverboat sounds like a great idea, along with the drive of course.
I am definitely down for that.

Perhaps they give group rates. I'm wondering if they'll need us to make reservations if our group is larger than 10 or something like that.

Thanks for looking into that, Brian.
I'm getting excited for fall already.

sorry I should have posted the link

Essex Stream Train and Riverboat


needs groups of 25 or more to get a group rate


anyway if we meet at my apartment in Enfield, lots of parking ... we could shoot out 190 to 197 and down 169. all roads out in the country side/woods, we drove one of them last year with Skunk.

So that would take us across the top of CT and then down to the coast where the steam train is. Even after that we could go over to Gillette Castle which you can see from the riverboat. Of course teh casinos are not that far away for food and Mystic is also no to far.


So it would be $26 each for a 2.5 hour train/boat ride non group rate.


edit: that CT river ferry is also right near by and that is a fun road to drive also

Steam Train & Riverboat Departures at 11:00 am, 12:30 pm, and 2:00 pm

well.. yea..?

Tony and I were talking about it,... and, we just thought maybe we could meet up at a Wendy's, have some Jr bacons.. and you know.. hit the pike .lol


really.. we were trying to think of a place that we could all meet up and hang out and not get charged or fined.

that sounds like a good idea brian.. as long as mike can make it.. (and not throw haroony off the boat )
hehe.. trout slap.. lol it would be a great idea. a sunday woud be best for me.. count me in.

Sundays are probably best for me too. However, I'm going to California or Vegas or Kansas or Florida some weekend in October so I may not be able to make it.

If those are your choices, I vote California.
