After our fun evening at O'Brien Truckers in Charlton, Mass we were up and rolling as Thursday was the day we arrive in Burlington. Our first stop in the morning was at Intercity Lines terminal in Brookfield, Mass. Intercity Lines is the official auto transport company of the AMSOIL/Street Rodder Road Tour. Folks on the east coast have expressed an interest in participating in our west coast Tour and vice-versa for our west coast Road Tourians. Intercity provides a way to safely and conveniently get your vehicle across long distances worry free. At Intercity we were greeted by President Dave Wilson and the Intercity staff. While enjoying coffee and donuts we were given a demonstration the care and preparation that goes into securing of a vehicle for its trip on an Intercity carriers. Their services make it possible for more folks to enjoy Road Tours across the country.

Our morning drive took us across the beautiful hills of New Hampshire and on to our lunch stop at Queechee Gorge Village on the New Hampshire -Vermont border. After some lunch we posed for a group picture and we were on our way to Burlington and the NSRA Northeast Nationals. We arrived in time for registration and all settled into our hotels for three days of fun.

It was a great weekend at the Northeast Nationals. We all enjoyed the AMSOIL/Street Rodder Road Tour hospitality tent. The weather was dry but as is the case in Vermont in September the morning can be very chilly. There was ice on the roof of the Road Tour Chevy one morning and it was my first "snowball" of the 2009 Road Tour. We posed for a group picture on Saturday at the tent and I was surprised by everyone as they presented me with a Road Tour poster that they had all signed. They also give me some money to take Mary Ann out to dinner when I got home. Thanks folks that was very nice.

The Road Tourians again took some top awards at the Burlington event. Dennis Gibson and Jin and Cindy Getter were presented with Reps picks and Chuck and Ann Shepler won the long distance award. It is always nice to see Road Tourians in the winners circle. Our cars are top notch drivers that look great too.

As I pulled out of the fairgrounds I set my sight to the west. In five days we will start the Sherms Plating Tour 3,000 miles away in Escondido, California near San Diego. I had to get rolling. I am driving the Road Tour Chevy on a cross country run that will be "old school" Road Tour with three 800 mile days. Check back here in a few days a find out how I make out on my journey. California here I come.
