GenVibe Meet 2019.

Post by zbyers » Mon Feb 18, 2019 5:09 am

*UPDATED 4/17/19*

If you plan on coming, please let me know so we can try to keep an accurate headcount. I will be updating this post with more info as it is added.

Location: Bradford, PA 16701

Date: June 21st- June 23rd
-Most will arrive on 6/21. Our plans will be on 6/22. Departure on 6/23.

Lodging: Best Western (Bradford Inn)
Address: 100 S Davis St, Bradford, PA 16701
Phone: (814) 362-4501

Group rate is $103+tax. Please call and mention "GenVibe" to receive group rate. You have until 5/20 to reserve. After 5/20 the block will be opened. 25 rooms have been reserved. They are a mixture of king or two queen rooms. If you have any issues, please do not hesitate to reach out to me on here or Facebook or email.
**You may get a marginally better rate if you are military/government or have CAA/AAA.**

Camping: Allegany State Park or the Kinzua East KoA Campground. These are both about equal distance away and are nice facilities. Will not be setting up group codes at either location.

Allegany State Park
Address: 2373 ASP Route 1, Salamanca, NY 14779
Website to Reserve Sites: https://www.reserveamerica.com/explore/ ... 1/overview

Kinzua East KoA Campground
Address: 32 Klondike Rd, Bradford, PA 16701
Phone: (814) 368-3662
Website: https://koa.com/campgrounds/kinzua/



6/21: Free For All
- Everyone is arriving so pretty low key day.
- World Day of Music in Historic Downtown Bradford. 5pm-8pm. Not a group activity persay, but this is going on downtown, not far from lodging so could make a good evening activity to get out around town.


6/22: Group Time!

Zippo/Case Museum Chestnut Street Extension, 1932 Zippo Drive, Bradford, PA 16701
-- 10am start time for guided tour. Will go to about noon.
***If you have a Zippo lighter or Case Knife that needs repaired, bring it with you to drop off or repair and they will mail it back once repaired. They do offer a lifetime guarantee!***

- Lunch Somewhere??
Have not nailed this down yet. Probably just have everyone pitch in some money for pizza.

- Kinzua Bridge State Park 296 Viaduct Road, Mt Jewett, PA 16740
-- We can either have lunch before we cruise here, or cruise to Kinzua Bridge then have lunch here (again, probably pizza). Depending on this, we'd be here about 2pm or so. This is a beautiful area for pictures with lots to explore. They are open until dusk. You can check out the visitor center, walk out onto the overlook, or even hike down into the valley.***

***You are on your own for dinner after this. I'd recommend taking the short drive to Kane, PA to checkout the various new eateries they have...Table 105, Twisted Vine Winery, CJ Spirits and Distillery, Log Yard Brewing, Pepe's Pizza, Roma's Pizza. They are also home to the areas one and only drive-in movie theatre (Kane Family Drive-In).
IF people are interested, I can work with the local drive-in to try to set aside a row aside for a group of us***


6/23: Goodbye!
- For those willing, we could do a short cruise to Kinzua Dam (if departure takes you that way and/or you want to check it out). Kinzua Dam is the largest dam east of the Mississippi. We yanked land from the Seneca Nation (and various other locals, some of whom I'm related to) through eminent domain when it was approved to build a dam here. Johnny Cash actually wrote about this in a song.
-Eldred WWII Museum is open 1pm-4pm on Sunday if you wanted to check that out.


Other Attractions: (could see before arrival/departure or if you want to go on your own)
- Kinzua Dam/Jakes Rocks/Rimrock/Allegheny National Forest Visitor Center
- Allegheny State Park
- Kinzua East KoA Campground
- Marilyn Horne Museum
- Penn-Brad Oil Museum
- Marilla Reservoir/Covered Bridge
- Bradford Landmark Society (Historical Society)
- Crook Farm (19th century farmstead)
- Arts in the Wild Festival June 21st-22nd (Kane, PA)
- Wilder Museum (Irvine, PA)
- Sprint Speedway (Go-Karts in Olean, NY)

I'll have to pass. I likely can't afford the five days away from customers to drive up, stay, then drive back.

Wouldn't be my first drive that way, or even my third. That's how I know exactly how long it'd take.

Interestingly enough, my last Vibe made the trip to Detroit at least twice (three times?). I just didn't drive it to Ottawa.

Sounds good so far have you thought about a home base where people could stay overnight yet?

Please disregard the location at the moment...We are possibly changing the location to one that will cooperate in the event of poor weather.

As for lodging, no we have not set up a block yet for the group.

June 22 should work for me. I'll be just finishing a 45 day shutdown project at the BP refinery here in Oregon where I live. This will be a nice "well needed" break!

Those shut downs are no joke. Our local refinery (United Refining) does theirs in like...March/April/May every few years. It's weird doing it in those colder months in the middle of nowhere PA!

Looking forward to seeing you at the meet.

Thanks for the info. Hotbug actually moved to somewhere in Ohio due to work. I will have to ask him for some info.

Awesome. Glad you can make it, and welcome aboard.

Feel free to make an introductory post in The Vibe Lounge with some pics of your ride. If you don't mind, you could also update your profile with your location.

Made some revisions 4/17/19. Unless others speak up otherwise, I have opted to remove visiting the Eldred WWII Museum. I've completed the "circuit" that would have been (about 1 hour between each place, so 3 hours of driving). While a nice cruise, it's probably just a bit too much, especially since most are already driving 6+ hours. Plus, we'd be crunched for time in the WWII Museum and that's a place you could spend all day in. Again, if others say otherwise, I can gladly add back in.
