 Saturday or Sunday Suggested Cruise Format

1. Meet at an easily reachable location 10-11 AM
(i.e. Walmart parking lot)

2.  After a 1 hour wait and chat, start cruise to landmark, antique shops, waterfront or view point.
Take lots of pictures!!!

3. Then head for Pizza Parlor, Deli or other eatery for good conversation over good food.

4. Done - Time: about 3-4 hours depending how much chatting takes place. Cruise should not be long but should include interesting place(s). Do not be discouraged if you do not draw a crowd. Remember there's not many of us in any one place. The worst thing that could happen is that you wait in a parking lot by yourself for an hour.
