Might be a trip for the 2015 451 Brabus for us . I’ll still have convince the wife it’s safe at the wee hours of the morning . NYC is just a two hour drive from our home .

Might want to include a couple of stops for bathroom breaks and or coffee, as well as photos along the way - Manhattan at night should make for impressive photos.

I will re run this course this weekend in full and give expected times. NYC is not very restroom friendly for drivers as it is a mass transit city. So from Tarrytown to Manhattan back to Tarrytown (32 miles each way) restrooms would be a challenge.

Breakfast and rest back in Tarrytown.

Then the Tarrytown ride to Bear Mountian State Park (30 miles each way) would be much easier to schedule some rest stops.

thanks for your input I hadn't thought about rest stops.

I sent him a PM. This is a focused but fluid idea of something intended, all thoughts and input will be appreciated. With in the next 3 months details will become more solid and confirmed.

On that note the proposed event Tee Shirt design;

Just a thought, it looks like about 5 miles from the park up to West Point - that would be a nice addition to the tour.
