This weekend four of us are making a combo BunBurner 1500 (1500 miles in 36 hours) and Dragon Run. The Dragon happens to be about 760 miles from NYC so we’re meeting at the Alexander Hamilton Rest Stop on the NJTP Extension in Secaucus at 6am Saturday. We have 4 fuel stops at intervals of approx. 150 miles (plus leaving full from NJ) and should arrive at the Dragon by 6pm. We’ll check in to the Dragon’s Pitt BBQ/Motel, where Andrew and I had our inaugural Dragon lunch upon arrival 2 Septembers ago.
We’ll make a couple of Dragon runs, just 22 miles further south on 129, then refuel at the Deal’s Gap souvenir shop and head back to the motel for BBQ and about 8 hours of sleep.
We’ll hit the road 5am Sunday to make it back to Secaucus, NJ (we picked the SONIC Drive-In across the street from the starting point) by 6pm (goal is 5pm but allowing for traffic). We’ll make the same fuel stops on the way back.
Who is going? A 2010 Tiger 1050, a 2008 cafed Bonneville, and a 2010 Vulcan & me:
