                 Saturday, April 17 , 2004


Our first drive of the season will be a run from Westerville out towards Licking County for a dry run of the
                                                                                            th
route that we will use for the Easton British Car days “pre” event on the Saturday (May 15 ) before. We
will be running essentially the same route, but will detour into Newark for a visit to:




The Works is a center of discovery that inspires an appreciation for industry, innovation and the creative
process in learners of all ages, backgrounds and abilities. Through its exhibits, programs and services,
The Works strives to stimulate analytical thinking and enhance the quality of life in Licking County and
beyond. There is a charge for admittance to “The Works” – at most $5.00 per person – I’ll be asking for a
group rate and let you know that day.
When we finish our tour at “The Works” – we will continue south for chicken at Clark’s Dining Room down
on route 40.
                                                 th
Two other events will be occurring on the 17 .
When we are done eating chicken, we will head back to Granville for a visit to Nelson Riedel’s home.
Nelson is “liquidating” his Triumph stuff and wants to clean house. In Nelson’s words:
          “I'm getting rid of all the remaining TR parts except for the carbs, powder coated brake &
          clutch parts and the new fender. I want to pick a weekend to get everything out for club
          members to come get what they want.. What is remaining I'll put in the trash the
          following Monday. Everything is free to club members. However, if anyone feels guilty
          taking advantage of a poor old man, they can make an anonymous contribution to
          Nelson's fun fund. The parts are listed at:
          http://www.nelsonslocomotive.com/TRParts/nelson.htm
If there are parts that you want but don’t have room in your LBC, we can arrange to have those parts held
at the Miles garage just down the street.)
         th
April 17 is also the Daffodil show in Granville, when you are done at Nelson’s take your better half into
Granville for the flower show in the College Town House next to the Granville Inn.
Since this is a dry run for the course that we will run for the British Car Day’s event, I will also be inviting
the folks from the other LBC clubs in town to come along with us if they care to.
We will meet at the McDonald’s off of Sunbury Road and Route 161 at 9:00 for breakfast. I would like to
leave for our drive at 9:30 AM.
Some notes on the attached directions:

The run is in 3 major sections (due to a glitch in the software program that I used to generate the maps)

       The first section gets us to Newark for our visit to the works and then out of Newark towards
        Clark’s Dining Room.
       When we reach Brownsville Road my map software refused to believe that we could get onto


        “Brushy Fork Road”                 , so I had to call that the end of the first section.
       The second section takes us to Clark’s Dining room, and also for a “toodle” through Dawes
        Arboretum to enjoy the spring flora, then off towards Granville.
       When we reach the point where We turn left on Seminary Rd from Thornwood Drive, again my
        map software refused to do this without some kind of fuss, so the 3rd leg became a necessity.
       The third section will take us into downtown Granville, (I will pass out maps to Nelson’s on the
        day of the drive) and then details the return trip to Columbus.

Since this is a “Dry Run” for our Easton event, if you see any typos or notes that should be added to the
directions, please let me know.

I hope that I have laid out a run that you will all appreciate, I know that I enjoy these roads whenever I
travel them.

See you on the 17th – hope for good weather!

PS. One Final Note – I use the program “Streets and Trips” to generate the basic maps for our tour, and
then capture the output and edit it. When Laying out the routes, I “coax” it in the direction I want by adding

“stops” – these stops manifest themselves on the attached maps by little yellow boxes:           these will be
noticed as Ref# on the attached directions.

   This is out first section of the journey – some of my favorite roads are on this section. Dry Creek, Reynolds Road,
                                     Blacksnake Road and Hickman Road to name a few.
      I try to avoid major highways and traffic lights – always be careful at stop signs to watch for crossing traffic.
                       Our first leg of this section takes us up and over to SR 62 towards Johnstown.
