I'm in Florida today.

The run today was to The Chatterbox Drive-In, Augusta, NJ, on March 25, 2018.

It was the 20th run of the 2017-2018 season.

Chairman Bob has informed us: "This will be our last ride to The Chatterbox Drive-In. It has been sold and will be demolished and replaced with a Wawa. I am sad to see it go. It would be nice if we could all thank them for all the years they have been there for us." See a few pictures we have taken at The Chatterbox over the years at the end of our 2018 pictures.

Guest photographers today were Dave Thompson, Bernie Walsh, and Gary Rosen.

If you took any pictures or videos for this run, please email them to me at walter@motorcycleviews.com and I'll place them on this website.

Note: We have a special picture gallery on my Motorcycle Views website. It's strictly for Polar Bear Grand Tour riders. Send me a picture of your motorcycle and yourself and get included in the gallery.

If you see one of our photographers, Bernie Walsh, Dave Thompson, or Gary Rosen, taking pictures, tell them you'd like to have your picture taken for the Polar Bear Picture Gallery. They will tell me which photos are also for the gallery. It will be up to you to contact me with information on year, make, model, and a short description along with your name.

I will also try to put a personal request to you under your picture if I see a picture of you and your motorcycle that looks posed. If you respond, I'll place the picture in the gallery.

This was the LAST visit to The Chatterbox Drive-In by the Polar Bear Grand Tour. Next year this will be a Wawa and the end of an era. Here are a few pictures from The Chatterbox Drive-In runs for the last 13 seasons. There is also a link at the end of each season to look at all The Chatterbox Drive-In pictures and videos for that season. (Videos done for runs before 2010 do not use YouTube and may have to be downloaded to your computer and clicked on to see.)
