Re: Whiteface Conditions

Let me guess,  either by the Ti exit on 87, or just before Stewarts in Keene.

Re: Whiteface Conditions

On 87 North of Chestertown (?) exit. Troopers were EVERYWHERE today. I got pulled over on an empty highway. I was going fast, but it was at the bottom of a long decline...

Usually don't stop you unless you are doing 80 plus. I always set the CC on 78 and haven't had any problems but you do have to watch the downhill because the old CC wont brake for you.

Re: Whiteface Conditions

I got nailed once near the Northway end of 73, shortly after the split with 9.   On the way to Whiteface I was doing maybe 65 and the trooper was headed in the opposite direction on 73.  Saw him hit the brakes in my rear view, he turned around and lit me up.  If I recall correctly I plead not guilty and managed a satisfactory outcome through the mail.

I wasn't aware that new cruise controls applied the brakes. We got a new car recently and I haven't had too much opportunity to use the cruise, but I don't think I've seen that happen.  It could be a setting, which I'll never know about because the owners manual is on a CD, which I have no way to access.

Regardless, I don't think I'd like a cruise that applies the brake. I'm looking to max out my mpg.

I was NOT looking forward to having to drink my Bloody Mary (s) in a fricken tent!  I mean....of course I would have, but I WOULDN’T have been happy about it.

Smart move - I'm sure if it wasn't open all kinds of xmas week non-regulars would be bitching and whining about the state of the lodge during that week.  I'm imagining WF will see a lot of new first-timers this season with MaxPass...who may be coming to make their own assessment of a place they never been to, but might as well now that they can go on their MaxPasses.  Having that new bar complete would be part of leaving a good impression.
