    I came out but got a late start. I hit so much traffic on the Robert Moses Causeway, that I turned around and went home.

    I know the meet-ups in Captree have a long history and include lots of different cars, but if there's interest in a formal V meet on Long Island, we might want to consider a summer location that is not near one of the most crowded public beaches on the Planet.

    I'm down to have a meet in either NY or NJ so long as a couple V1s and V2s show up, and we plan it at least a week in advanced.

    This past Sunday was the Jones Beach Air Show with the Navy Blue Angels performing. It draws about 150,000 people to Jones Beach every Memorial Day weekend and renders all roads near it useless. So the traffic you experienced was NOT normal.

    Usually there's no traffic Sunday morning, but the key is EARLY, like 8 or 9 AM. Show up around 11 AM or later, and you'll run into beach traffic in the summer, although still not nearly as bad as what you saw with the air show. The other benefit of getting there early is you get to see some really cool and rare cars - they start leaving around 11.

    Also, from May to about October, the gathering spot is the nearby Oak Beach parking lot (formerly OBI), not Captree, as the parking is free there. The OBI parking lot is 1/2 mile west of Captree, along the south side of the island. The state charges for parking at Captree in the summer, but not in the winter, so the car gathering moves between Captree and OBI based on season. The OBI lot is much smaller than Captree though, so parking can be a problem if you're not there early enough.

    my friends and i head out at sunrise to beat the traffic and 5/0.. the best days are when there is dense cloud cover/highwinds cause the birds cant fly and clock you from the air

    I plan to be there this Sunday, labor day weekend. I haven't gone since the early spring!

    Hopefully I'll have time to wash the car before appearing - I'll be doing a HPDE with my Z06 at Pocono the day before.
