I know that you boys had the smash hit that Greg put together, but a) I didn't get to go
and b) I thought that another one might be fun.
If anyone's interested (I'm guessing later in the summer), I'd be happy to help come up with a creative route. Perhaps even create a weekend-long journey? (better call every police connection i can think of
Count me in as well. If you want to travel a little north(Santa Rosa & north), I have some outrageous routes through wine country and the hills surrounding that would be a lot of fun. I also know of some great deli & restaurants for pit stops.
Greg, your outing sounded great. It was the week that I took delivery of my car and we almost crossed paths as I was heading back from Monterey with my wife. Do you think that some of the crew on your drive might be interested?
Dan, let me know what weekend you were thinking of.
I am unavailable the next 3 weekends - first opp would be last weekend in August. Early September is OK too. (I don't expect you to work around my schedule, of course - but if you have a choice, great!)
I have a jet black but no aftermarket. although I just came back and my car seems louder. I guess that's what 1 week w/o it does to you
Well, why don't we do this, if you're interested, email me the dates of availability and we'll try to work around that. If we get enough people, we might have to push it back a little to accomodate as many as possible.
Ok. I've been informed of some very interesting routes up north a little. Personally, I'm in the San Mateo area, so I wouldn't mind meeting up with people from down south a bit and then heading up.
John has come up with the following route:
"The route that I was thinking of has everthing you described. Start with
breakfeast in Santa Rosa at the Omelette Express in Old Railroad Square.
Santa Rosa > Calistoga via Calistoga Rd. (twisty hills); Calistoga >
Geyserville via Hwy 128 (scenic drive through wine country with some twisty
sections and some good sraight-aways); photo opportunity in Geyserville in
front of the Geyser Peak Winery; Geyserville > Cloverdale via Hwy 101 (long
fast straight-aways, I have a Valentine for the CHiP's); Cloverdale >
Booneville via Hwy 128 (very twisty road), Lunch in Booneville; Cloverdale >
Ukiah (more twisty roads), Ukiah > Healdsburg via Hwy 101 and Dry Creek Rd.
(many good straight-aways and some beautiful wine country scenery); stop at
Bear Republic Brewerey in Healdsburg for a break; head home."

Sez it'll arrive in Port Hueneme on 8/14. So, fingers crossed, we ought to be able to make 9/9.
