Ad Hoc Trips

From time to time our members inform us of trips they are interested in sharing with gang members. The trips’ descriptions may be published in the “Hill Topics” newsletter under “AD HOC TRIPS” a maximum of three times, for members’ convenience only and limited to 100 words each. These trips are not included in the newsletter’s “Schedule of Upcoming Events”, or in the website’s “Events” schedule. If interested, you may make your reservations directly with the travel agency, and your fees do not go through the club’s Treasurer. These trips are not authorized by Top of the Hill Gang, and the club is not responsible in any way.
Top of the Hill Gang offers trips through its members who volunteer to organize the trips. The members sometimes work through travel/tour companies like Collette, but it is up to the individual Gang volunteer to contact the travel/tour company to begin the process.


Ad Hoc Bicycling Trips for 2021

Biking Colonial Virginia - October 3-8

With the promise of a vaccine to end the COVID-19 pandemic and so much interest in last year’s cancelled trip, Linda and Paul have decided to arrange another private bike tour in the Colonial Virginia area for six days in and around historic sites such as Jamestown, Yorktown, and Williamsburg.
The rides are considered flat with a few rolling hills, average daily mileage is 25 miles +/-, and the tour is fully van-supported.

Intervale, NH - 2021

Old Field House
347 NH-16A, Intervale, NH 03845

Call reservations at 800-444-9245
Please let organizer know you made reservations
 

To say that this has been a challenging year is a huge understatement! But life goes on, the snow is coming and plans must (optimistically) be made!
Because I’m basically an optimistic person, I’m planning an ad hoc trip to Old Field House in Intervale, NH. Old Field House is big, comfortable inn that offers lots of amenities – large rooms with private baths and refrigerators, full, hot breakfast included in the room fee, a large gathering place for happy hours and games, snowshoes to borrow if you need them, and even a large, shaggy dog to pet!
Jackson, Bear Notch and Great Glen XC ski areas are within a short commute. Snowshoe trails start right out the back door or a short drive away in town and are all free. Hungry? A pizza party is planned for Friday night and I’ll provide a list of local restaurants for Saturday night’s supper.
If you’d like to come along:

  • Call the toll free number above to make your reservation
  • Let the owners know you’re part of my trip
  • let me know you’re coming by email (See Forum)
