    Bay Area Drive 8 January 2012

    Weather permitting, Jimmy (canuckjc) and I are planning a drive next Sunday, 8 January 2012, at 1 pm from Alice's Restaurant in Woodside California to the Ritz Carlton via Highways 84 and 1. Any other Bay Area Board Members who want to join are welcome!

    Proposed route for 8 January 2012 drive

    Jimmy and I discussed the Alice's to the Ritz Carlton route shown in the Google map. We'll figure out the drive back to Alice's once we stop at the Ritz for a beverage and appetizers (Hwy 92 to 35 proposed).

    Do you have a route map of the drive on the 8th?

    Sorry guys, gonna have to drop out... My mother passed away in Carmel last night, and I need to make a trip down tomorrow to sort out her affairs with my brothers. Have fun, and take pics.

    Thanks guys. Heading down today to meet my brothers there, and tie up some of her estate. She was 88, and after a series of strokes, it was no surprise. I'll miss her.

    Thanks to Ed for organizing today's outing. Only the two of us made it, but the drive was a lot of fun, and the Z-discussion over lunch was even better.
    Here are a couple of pics from today...the bike was at Alice's. Ed took a few more pics with his *real* camera

    It was my pleasure to set up today's drive, although I couldn't help think about Ian and his family at this time.

    We were fortunate to have clear blue skies with temperatures in the low to mid 60's. Except for a few high performance motorcycles, we had the roads to ourselves. The start of the drive had us on Highway 84 that winds through redwood forests and we ended along the coast of the Pacific Ocean on Highway 1. We'll have a repeat performance in the future.

    Here's a couple of pictures from the front of the Ritz Carlton Hotel in Half Moon Bay. Jimmy is on the left and I'm on the right.

    The weather was perfect today. It's great you guys got to take advantage of it.

    Sorry I couldn't join the run. We'll do another soon. Norcal and I briefly spoke a few days ago about a Mt. Hamilton loop, but we need to do a check Calaveras Canyon as some of the Porsche guys recently reported rocks. Should make for a fun photo at the observatory. To/from Sunol/Livermore the long way 'round - lots of curves.
