This coming weekend we will be busy visiting/covering car meets and shows in the North East. On Saturday the Green Mountain Chapter of the BMWCCA will be holding OktoberFAST at the beautiful Smugglers ‘ Notch Resort. Vermont in the fall is one of my favorite places to be; folliage, micro-brews, and the brisk clean air. Adding some German cars to that makes it even better.

If you are up for a nice ride, great vistas and of course BMWs you should considering making the trip.

On Sunday morning we will be off to GPNY for some karting as part of an Oktoberfest BMW meet, to be covered in more detail tomorrow.

Full details for OktoberFAST can be found below
