Happenings around New England and beyond...
June 4 Lake Regions Ramble - Larry & Carol Hoagland - New Hampshire
The opener for this years Autoneer touring was in Moultonboro NH prepared by seasoned tour masters Larry & Carol Hoagland
Our Autoneer web-reporter Alex Huppe was there and sends us this report:
There wasn't a single unpleasant road on Larry and Carole Hoagland's New Hampshire Ramble on June 4.
The first twenty miles or so took us on smooth country back roads, with beautiful vistas on the lakes,
fields and hills of N.H. On our way to a Lyman boat meet we were able to stop at a old railway switching area,
and then a visit to a small boat museum. After a visit to Moultonborough and the boat show, we were treated to
lunch by Ritchie Clyne at his car collection n the shores of Lake Winnepesaukee. Another scenic drive took us to
Bart Carlson's collection, and ice cream social.
The weather was pleasantly warm, and the drivers and navigators of the sixteen brass cars enjoyed each of the sixty
or so miles of this grand tour.

Who or what is an Autoneer?
The first use of the term is found in the "Overland Monthly" from 1902.
It is a contraction of the words "automobile" and "pioneer" and was used to describe those indefatigable folks
who first took to the paths and byways of America in their new form of transportation.
Today, this anachronistic term is revived by an enthusiastic band of New Englanders who pay homage to those who
have gone before. The group that calls itself the Autoneers is a collection of car folks who enjoy driving their brass
cars and showing the world what automotive transport was like in the early days.
The Autoneers was first organized in 1980 and held our first tour in September of that year.
In 1990 we joined forces with the Horseless Carriage Club of America
by becoming their New England Regional group. We conduct at least 6 events (tours) each year and also host other
events for the HCCA. Our outings range from 1 day tours, weekend happenings and even week long events.
Our tours are limited to non-modified vehicles built in 1914 or before, and other vehicles through 1916
that retain the hallmark characteristics of the brass era such as Ford cars.
These tours offer a wonderful way to enjoy the back roads and country lanes of New England and share their love
of these antiquated vehicles with all the folks we encounter.
HCCA membership is required of all Autoneer touring members. Prospective members and guests are encouraged to attend.
