The Pine Tree Motel may be the main venue. Classic. The owners will provide a grill, a campfire, and morning coffee.

Around here, "Roger" means the owner of the Pottersville Garage. We may want him to be on call with his flatbed.

This is a remote loop, about 100 miles - one stoplight, five stop signs. Many others to choose from.

Camp 928 - a gathering of Porsche 928 owners in Northeast USA

June 16-18, 2017 / Adirondack Mountains

192 White Schoolhouse Rd. / Chestertown, NY 12817

Hello, this is Curt Austin, ADK46 on Rennlist. I got my 928 in 2014 and it's been a terrific experience. Not just the car, but also the people on Rennlist and those I've met at gatherings of 928 owners. Like many 928s, my car has been a community effort.

So, I've decided to host a gathering myself. I live in an interesting area, in the Northeast where there is no other gathering. The Adirondack Mountains are roughly midway between New York City, Boston, Montreal and Buffalo. I'm actually within the Adirondack Park, a mixture of state and private land - bigger than Yellowstone.

It's a one-stoplight town, quiet in the winter, but lively in the summer. There's no big hotel, but there are interesting alternatives. The Pine Tree Motel is a classic roadside motel, which might serve as our central location. My own "compound" includes space for tents, cots and other places to crash. There are B&B's, from ordinary to those that will delight the most reluctant spouse. Bring the family and stay in a lakeside cabin you can find on Airbnb.

Considering the weather (and black fly) conditions here and the dates of other gatherings and holidays, I've chosen the weekend of June 17.

Various details can be found on the "Participant Info" page.

I-87 runs north and south, just three miles away. Lightly traveled, very smooth, nicely curved, sometimes widely divided by trees and terrain - like the Autobahn? Not that I suggest you tempt fate with the Troopers, who are quite clever, or the deer, who are quite stupid. All the highways are maintained very well - there are some benefits of high taxes.

There are routes that can take us to scenic places, near and far - Lake Placid is about 75 miles away. There are routes across remote state land. I know a 100-mile loop with only one stoplight and five stop signs, with long stretches without intersections, driveways, or even power lines. Check out the "Fun Runs" page for the routes I'll be recommending.

We'll want to take some special steps due to the remoteness. Cell coverage can be spotty, so a buddy system will be wise. I've arranged to have a local flatbed guy on call. Several noted 928 mechanics will be in attendance. We'll have some tech sessions.

The local PCA club will be taking on the Main Street portion of the event on Saturday, so we can expect some extra turnout from the general Porsche crowd. The 928 Owners Club is involved as well.

- Curt Austin.

There is an obscure monument to the 928's valve timing system on the top of Prospect Mountain. The deferred maintenance is intentional.
