17th Annual 48hrs of Tristate. Jan 11-14, 2018.
2018 will be the 17th consecutive year that we will be holding The 48hrs of Tristate Annual Charity Drive. This annual group drive includes about 1,000 miles of driving spread over 3 days.
This year’s trip we will be doing something a bit different than in the past where we usually made a big circular route, we will be trying out a hub-and-spoke style route where we will have the same hotel on both Friday and Saturday nights and head out each day and return back to the same hotel. This will give us more chance for back road driving without having to make a certain destination by nightfall. Friday night will be Kartboy’s Karting Extravaganza sponsored by Tom at Kartboy. This will be a 2 hour private indoor karting event free to participants of the trip. we will also have a private indoor karting event for participants!
Not only is this trip an amazing way to see the scenic winterscapes but it is an opportunity for you to help give back to the community. All registrants are required to sign up through our link to Make-A-Wish New Jersey, a charity which makes “wishes” for children with life threatening medical conditions. The donations you make to MAW act as your “entry fee” for the event. They are also tax deductible!
There are all different folks who attend the trip, young adults, families, retirees, you name it, if they enjoy Subarus they are there. We caravan in groups of 10-15 cars and communicate from car to car via CB radios. People share stories during the trip and many folks have made lifelong friends through the past events. It is truly an amazing way folks bond together!
This year we will be doing lots of non-highway miles for charity! Our travels will take from NJ out to PA and NY with the closing dinner in Northern NJ.
