$160.00, great deal Ed !!! If you are planning on going Southwest seems to have some major deals $75 each way from Buffalo for example. Better book soon.
Unfortunately I won't be able to make it, even if it was free airfare frown. But I did see my NEVC pals back in August.

Ok,still planning on making this trip.
Unfortunately I will have to make it in a non Van.
Pretty sure my late model will not be ready for that trip.
My early has NEVER been driven in the salt and NEVER will be.
Alternative vehicle will be used......

Well, crap...one of my favorite areas of the country...I had to leave my van in Wisconsin last week...blew up the radiator and not sure what else, so...the empty wallet isn't helping...The end of the year is approaching and it looks like my income is going to be down about $40,000 from the last couple years...working with the bands and stuff helps, but not that much...

There is a train station @ 1 mile from the hotel. I am planning on taking a train from Rensselaer NY to there.


The only Stephentown on earth.

Hey I got a call from Tequila, he left a msg regarding C of C but no return phone #. If anyone can get a hold of him ask him to call me back, please

Dr. Bob I don't see the train station at 1 mile away that you mentioned...do you know where it is??
I looked these up on the AMTRAK site and Mapquested the distances:

Providence, RI, 100 Gaspee St. 20.76 miles approx 26 minutes

Westwood, MA, 50 University Ave. 16.41 miles approx 19 minutes

Does this help Johnny O??

The train station that is 1 mile from the hotel is the MBTA commuter line. If you check ground transportation from either Airport they have the routes listed. The Hotel says on their website that their shuttle will pick you up from the MBTA commuter rail station. I think the commuter line runs from the AMTRAK stations also.

Right you are, Smitty!! I did a little more research (after I posted here, DOH!!) and found that the MBTA does run from Providence to Mansfield.
So, it'll be AMTRAK to Providence, MTBA to Mansfield, Shuttle to hotel!!
Very cool!!

Smitty, Bud, sorry I didn't get back to you sooner. (I forgot ya had a landline instead of a cell-phone, Bud, and my number probably didn't show upon it)

Johhny-O and I talked about this at Getaway's Halloween party Saturday, and I told him I'd get back to ya. Kenny St. Onge and I talked about this about 10 days ago. It seems that if you're flying into Green airport in Providence, that you can take the MBTA commuter train right into Mansfield, and there is a shuttle bus available to take you to the hotel. I'm going to PM you with my number and some more info, so you can get back to me if you need to.

Catch ya later, Tequila

I am thinking of a couple of trips on Thursday or Friday myself. Let the board know of all ideas you may have out there.

Looking forward to seeing everyone again,

Brad, Johnny, I'll find out who's doing the website updates tomorrow at our annual Truckin' For Tots run. Pretty much everybody who's involved in the C. of C. will be there, and I'll mention it to Doc about the updates.

Everyone needs to bring their loudest craziest Hawiian shirts for being around the pool. I will have The Crusher with me as well and you all can have some but only if you have a loud shirt on!

Howard I would consider it but the wife would not appreciate it. Hopefully you find someone and get a chance to make it out to New England.

Tempted to take you up on this Howard. I really can not afford to go but want to. There are a couple double rooms left at $89/night. I would be driving up. I was not able to make Freezeout like I wanted to this weekend so I may have money to do this. Still doing Motorama the next weekend so it does make for a bit of a tight schedule.

Johnny, we already talked about Thursday night (or afternoon) at the NEVC meeting. I'm definitely planning a trip into Boston on Friday morning. Gonna take the #814 train out of Mansfield at 10:12 AM and be in South Station at 10:57. We'll take the Red Line subway from there. Probably gonna require people to meet in the hotel lobby sometime right after 9 AM. I'll have a shuttle trip set up from the hotel to the train in time to get us to the station about 10 min. early, so we can get our tickets ahead of time. I'll be at the hotel (maybe Wednesday Noon, depending on weather) but definitely Thursday Noon, and I'll be looking around to see who wants to go with me.

Smitty,
What do you need to make the Apple Pie? I'm not far from the venue and would be willing to get some ingredients for it on my way up.


Got 6?
I cannot explain why I'm a vanner. For those who understand, no explaination is needed. For those who don't, no explaination is possible.

Just checked fares on the MBTA. Round-trip to Boston should be $17.50, plus about $12.50 for subway passes, so figure $30.00 for transportation.

Yes in deed Smitty! Just got off the phone with a vanner near NH that is picking up the crush ingredients. May be looking to go on the Sam Adams tour now on Friday. Does anyone know the cost for the bus?
Also don't forget your club and council banners!

I don't think we're doing the Sam Adams tour, but we'll be doing some sight seeing. Possibly rent a van or something.
Shouldn't run out too quick Phil I'll have 4 Gals there. But you never know LOL!!

Tequila where are you planning on going with the train/subway tour??

Well, we had hoped to come up, even if only for a day or two, but Kyrstin has a Winter Guard competition on Sunday in Pittsburgh that we had planned to work around, but this morning when I went out to go to work our Nitro was Repossessed! So now we need to scrape whatever we can together to try and get it back, so there will be no funds to make the trip. I just can't seem to catch a break!

Smitty, my tour's going to be first-class breweries, brewpubs, and beer bars. Taking the 10:12 train out of Mansfield. Be out about 4-5 hours. If we can, I'd like to arrange transportation to the MBTA Red Line, which will save us $17.50. Then it will be $11.00 for an all-day subway pass. Also, two good lunch stops along the way are planned.

If you or anyone else needs directions or info for anything else you might want to see, you can phone me at the hotel or on the road. I'll be at the hotel about 1:30 Pm today, and I'll have my cell-phone on me. The number's in the NEVC Guide book under Mass. Clubs, Tardy Truckers.

See Ya There!!

We'll need to channel the vannin gods to keep that crazy snow away from the CofC. No fun when you have a huge event like that snowed in.

THIS IS GREAT!! They closed the state and we have been on lockdown with some of the best people in the world--VANNERS!! And being in the hotel already is one of the safest places you can be--they have restaurant, bar, pool and a play area. We stock some extra supplies and by tomorrow it should all be a fond memory!

Miss you if you aren't here....hugg you if you are!!!


Cherish your friends!
HUGGS to all!

Thank You New England Vanners for the wonderful time MrsHoney & I had at the Council of Councils. New England really knows how to throw a party. Docs box of toys really made things festive. And the Hospitality suite was a fantastic job done by Dysfunctional Vanners. It was nice to meet Smiley & Wokee face to face. thank you again kids.

Thoughts and observations...

What an awesome party put on by the guys and gals from New England! That was an old school good time...Hospitality snacks were awesome, the decor was great, and someone was always around to answer questions and help in any way.

The hotel was huge and very accomodating. They were way short staffed due to the storm, and what staff they had was pushed to the limit by the sheer numbers they were trying to serve. I heard housekeeping dropped the ball a bit, but we generate a lot of trash, and who changes their sheets and towels everyday at home anyway? The ice machines were a fail, but Mother Nature made it easy to keep your coolers cool...just take your trash can outside and get snow!

I have noticed over the years that the warm weather Councils with lots to do outside the hotel seem to have shorter meetings and less vanners in the hotel. Winter cities have longer meetings and more vanner bonding going on. I got there late, but still had time to hang out with old friends, and meet a bunch of folks from on here and FB. We all love a vacation and being tourists, but every once in a while, it's nice to have a cold weather council to just enjoy each others' company.

All that said, GREAT JOB NEVC and the Van Embassy, and very impressive handling of the storm by the states involved...

I have a bunch of pictures on my Facebook page...there are at least 6 albums.

HOME safe and not so sound!
Been taking it quite easy today.....
had a blast at Council!
LOVED the storm...made me feel right at home--I don't know how they ordered that one up, but it was fun. We laid in some extra supplies and we were all good. Never lost power at the hotel and it was fun to see snowmen built next to the pool!
Or snowdrifts in the room! Or snowbanks for coolers...we are Vanners..we adjust! I like the Vanner who told the manager...you just keep the power on and we will take care of ourselves! And we did....

Howard, maybe you were just on the wrong side of the hotel...we had none of those issues by our room...and lots of ice in the machine right out our door too! We got extra anything we needed from the hotel and the restaurant was packed with captive diners!

Anyway...great job by the NE Van Embassy...and the hotel...I am ready to go back to NE for another..not sure if they are tho...oh, I did want to mention, our host members that live nearby all brought their snowshovels in case we needed them....they even thought of that one little detail, that when all those Vanners went to get the vehicles dug out, made a world of difference in handling the situation. Gotta love it!

Also...Pooh, thanks for keeping me from drinking alone!!! Loved our time together!


Cherish your friends!
HUGGS to all!

Planes Trains and Shuttle Buses......

Using public transportation made my trip to this event interesting to say the least.
If I do go to another van event and can't drive my self there.I will set it out.........

That being said.........

Once I got to the hotel.My trip was rewarded by Doc and his crew.While the rest of the state was in shut down mode.
The little slice of heaven we vanners made for our selves rocked on.I really can't think of a better group of people to be snowed in with.
We vanners have a way of making the best of any situation.
Our host this year where very accommodating and friendly.I did not notice any short comings from the hotel.
Johnny O and his wife took me out to a local steak house on Saturday night.It was neat to get to hang with them on a little more personal level.
I also want to thank Frank Costa for driving my self and other vanner to the air port so we could get home.

Astro did a good job covering this event for those who could not make it.

I did get to meet up with Mr Honey.He definably does not look like he types like and is a way cool person.
My new BVB

I do really need to thank all of our fellow vanners who voted to allow the Vintage Chevy Van Club to host a Council of Council meeting next year in New Orleans.

Looking forward to this vanning season.

Whoa, what a storm!! My people are still diggin' their way out....LOL I hope everybody got home safe, and y'all had a real good time! I haven't been able to get online until tonight, due to the fact that the Town Library computers have been down all week, and will still not be up until next week. {Piece of Crap townie computers....LOL}

I want to especially thank everybody that came down to the pool all weekend, and helped me celebrate the return of the B.A.R.
I've wanted to see some of your faces hanging out there for a lonnng time! {the mother's been in storage for over 12 years...wayyyy too long!}

I feel bad that the weather prevented us from taking some of you out on some long-planned trips to see some of our fun spots. Maybe if we ever have a Natz in New England again, we can remedy that problem.

So, here's to a great Vannin' season this year.....hope to see all of you again!!

Boy, the weather outside is giving me flashbacks. Only this weekend I don't have a beautiful oasis from the cold snow and wind, filled with new and old friends. I have not stopped wishing I was still there since we left, what a great party. Many thanks to those involved in making this happen. Thanks to Dysfunctional Vanners for their hospitality. And thanks to the staff and management of the hotel for allowing such a special event to go so well.

Everyone should log onto the hotel site and give a feedback. It will go a long way in possibly having us back!
