VT to Cape Cod ex mod convoy May 29th

Hey Guys,

Ive got the crazy idea of driving 4 ex mod rovers down and a large airsoft event in MA May 29th-31st. Two 110's, a 90, and a disco towing a 109.

Im leaving Charlotte VT at 8am on Friday the 29th and convoying down to the Wendy's in Lebanon NH for lunch an fuel with a 10:30-11am arrival.

Then pushing to Salam NH and stopping at Salem Exxon next to barns and Noble at around 2:30 for gas.

We will then be pushing down 93/RT3 to the Sandwich inn/ BBC restaurant. We plan on arriving at the BBC for dinner around 7pm.

If any one wants to join us mad nutters for parts of the trip or just want to say high at our stops please Join us. We will be in convoy....granted a slow 55-60mph one. My cell number is 802-324-3370 or you can reach us on Chan 03 GMRS 462.6125

We will then be repeating it all in Reverse Sunday night starting at 5pm after hunting small children with full auto bbs guns well wearing NVG's in the Rovers all weekend.

Please pray to the Rover gods for us!

Hey Derek,
I will put the 29th in the calender, we might see you in Sandwich.
I don't think I will have my LR90 back yet, although Will is doing one hell of a job (here's hoping)!
My wife met you years ago when we looked at one of your lightweights.
If I can be of any support help pm me.
-Chris

BBC had a fire. It was in the local radio news WXTK.
Don't know the extent.
Might want to call them.

Call them, I don't know the extent of the damages.
Couldn't find out online.
They might be open...

There's a bigger, nicer BBC 5-6 miles north of there right off the highway (Rte 3 @ Exit #2) NOT TO BE CONFUSED WITH EXIT #2 off Mid-Cape highway where the Sandwich BBC is located.
This BBC is in the Cedarville Village of Plymouth. It's literally across from the off-ramp. No more than 15 minutes from the other BBC (and closer north so you'll eat sooner after your long ass ride).

Derrick I'd love to join and rally a few others too, but I'll be away that weekend. I'm only 15 minutes north of Exit 2. In fact, when I was working on my 110 for a few weeks back in March the garage I was using was down the road from BBC and I would bang in there for lunch.

If you're hung up on being in Sandwich or closer to the motel, then hit Flynn's right down the street from the Christmas Tree Shops at the base of the Sagamore Bridge. It's small, but it's a legit pub

Just to give you an idea how close these all are to where you are staying.


I'd say that BBC in Cedarville will be the easiest to accommodate a larger group, but hopefully the Sandwich BBC is open because they often have live entertainment on the weekends.


FWIW, I'm friends with one of the owners of BBC and he is a huge Defender fan. He used to own a '97 LE (of course regrets selling it) and has done the Defender tour exploring volcanos in Iceland.

Thanks Jackie! Really helps not having to find a new place. I've been crazy trying to get 5 Rovers, 2 trailers, and all the stuff we need for the airsoft side of it together.

Hopefully all goes well and I'll updated this thread with pictures.

Derek, are you driving your Ex MoD 86 that's on your webiste for sale? I'd still like to come and take it out for a drive- I just lost out on a nice Series IIa that I had a PPI set up for. This whole drive sounds like a fun weekend, I'm committed as it is so can't come say hello- enjoy!
