The Vagabond Cruise
Jack and Nancy Bartek

 In 1921, Captains of Industry, Henry Ford, Thomas Edison, and Harvey Firestone set out on a 5-day camping excursion to reconnect with nature, calling themselves The Vagabonds.  Their adventures took them thru Western Maryland and to the present-day site of Swallow Falls State Park.

Please Join us on Saturday Aug. 21st for our Miata Vagabond adventure!  Well embark from Mt Pleasant, Pa and travel south to hills of West Virginia and Maryland, (rest stop at the 1 hour mark) and ultimately arriving at Swallow Falls State Park.  Well reconnect with nature and walk the 1.5 mile Canyon Loop trail, taking us past the same natural falls area The Vagabonds enjoyed almost exactly 100 years ago. Please note there is a $5 per person entry charge into  Swallow Falls Park.
After the Falls, its a short drive over to Mountain State Brewing Co. which features hand-crafted ales, wood-fired flatbread-style pizza, sandwiches, and salads. The menu will be sent to you approx. 1 week before the cruise to pre-order our selections.

Our next stop is the Garrett Co Museum of Transportation, filled with fascinating displays, and only a short walk from our ice cream stop.

Jack and Nancy, and all attendees -

Thanks so much for organizing the event, it was a fantastic way to experience the club for the first time.  Keri and I enjoyed the beautiful roads, destinations, food, and conversation along the way.  Please forgive any future absences as we work around our children's social lives, but we will certainly do our best to attend any functions we can!
