Annual Last Drive 2017
November 4, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
The Last Drive
The 4th Annual Last Drive of the Year will be on Saturday, November 4th. It will feature a combination of leisurely touring, spirited driving, and a very interesting and unique destination.
The drive will depart at 10:00 from Perkins Restaurant at 20013 Route 19 in Cranberry Twp. 16066, giving you plenty of time for a leisurely breakfast at one of the area restaurants.
It will take us about 1:40 to reach our destination stop , the Large Scale Systems Museum (LSSM) in New Kensington. The LSSM is accessible to the public by appointment only. They have an amazing collection of computing systems representing every era of the computer age from the 1960s through today. The large systems are downstairs and the personal systems are upstairs.
The big difference between the LSSM and the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, CA is that almost everything in the LSSM actually works…and the curators provide live demonstrations. Have you ever wanted to play with an Apple Lisa, or an original 1984 Macintosh? Here’s your chance.
Anyone who has had contact with computers at any level will find the LSSM infectiously interesting.
From there, we have a short drive to a snack or light lunch at The Eatery in Harmer Twp. From there, we have a nice drive on some very scenic roads—and sometimes challenging roads—to our dinner destination at The Hardwood Café on Rt.8, just south of Butler at about 4:30.
The drive is 115 miles long. The elapsed time will be about 6:30. The drive time will be about 4:00.
The 4th Annual Last Drive is designed to continue the fine tradition of Annual Last Drives 1 – 3. I hope you can join us.
