Autumnal Cruise

As our Corvette season begins to wind down, Gate City took to the roads for a great back roads cruise up through New Hampshire into Vermont to visit the Vermont Country Store. The roads selected were a bunch of great, lesser traveled routes without a lot of traffic, and some really nice colors in the trees to appreciate as we travelled. After a stop at the Country Store where much shopping was done (from soup mixes to crazy straws), we got back in the cars and continued our cruise over to Papagallos in Keene, NH for a group dinner. Thanks to Brent & Norm for organizing a great cruise for us!
