    Hi everybody, happy to be here!

    And happy to be in a Miata since last April.   As a kid I grew up around sports cars as my dad had various mostly British cars that he tinkered with and raced on weekends at gymkhanas,  hillclimbs and at Bridgehamptom and Lime Rock and for a while he and my mom were presidents of the Liverpool Motor Club.  My first car was an Austin Healey Sprite and later I had a blue 1969 MGC GT which was a daily driver for over a decade but I regrettably sold it over a decade ago.  So when I decided to get back into a sports car last winter for practicality reasons this time I chose the Miata path.  I’m glad I did!   I found a very low mileage super clean  original owner midnight blue 2002 LS and have thoroughly enjoyed putting 7,000 trouble free miles on it already.    Recently I bought a hardtop for it off a couple guys who suggested joining the club.  So I look forward to seeing some of you and your cars in the future.

    Meanwhile,  since most of you are likely far more familiar with New England than I am,  if anyone has any suggestions for particularly good roads and places I  would love to hear them as my wife and I are heading out on a honeymoon drive this Monday and we have no planned itinerary for what will be our first road trip in the Miata.  We’ve always traveled in a van with lots of space for gear and camping  (but have always gone west…)   but not this time!  After a couple days to hit the beach in Rhode Island we want to go to the mountains, probably New Hampshire and Vermont.   We’re just winging it and don’t have any reservations anywhere so suggestions of  towns with cool little uncrowded motels for example are particularly welcome.

    Thanks y’all, and see you around!

    I assume you’ve been to Harriman Park, I like the Bear Mt area and Harriman has some twisty roads like Arden Valley Road.

    The roads around Amenia and Pine Plains feature lots of farm and ranch land and are beautiful when the leaves turn.

    Rt 22 is a nice start as many scenic roads branch off of it. Rt 199 off of it towards the Kingston Bridge is very picturesque (you could continue east across the Hudson to the Catskills). Another nice road off of 22 is Rt 44 into Ct. You could continue north to rt 2 (Mohawk Trail) that runs through North Adams into some nice views.

    In Vt. Route 9 from Bennington to Brattleboro is nice. Route 100 takes you all the way up north.

    There are so many good roads in N.E. I’ve put at least a quarter million miles up here in Miatas and I’m still exploring.
