from there I will head down Skyline towards Alice's Restaurant and then take Hwy 84 to La Honda. Depending on my mood and the mood of anyone who comes, I may continue on to the coast and explore some of the other roads like Hwy 1, Stage Rd or Pescadero. Then back to Alice's and perhaps stop there for dinner. If anyone wants to join at Alice's we can meet there too.

post here or PM me if you're coming, so I know to wait for you.
Hmm... I'll see if I can get off work early

I was actually thinking of taking the La Honda -> Hwy 1 route home from work today so this would work out perfectly. Can you guys wait up at Alice's restaurant for me? I should be there at around 6pm.

Each of you earned a STAR for your 86DRIVE card! Chris and Sandy I'll make sure you guys get your STARS next time I see you. make sure you hang on to that card and present it to continue to earn STARS on future DRIVES.

Unfortunately, not. I need to get the mic adapter for it so that I don't have so much wind noise. And, the camera didn't pick up the sparks flying out of the back of your car because the A-pillar was in the way. And finally, one of the local bugs decided to photobomb the video.

Other than not being able to hear the tires squealing around corners, and missing some good shots, I had a great time! Thanks to everyone to showed up

Just a quick advisory to fellow drivers. There are lane closures due to construction on highway 9 between Saratoga and Four corners as well as the on northern part of skyline north of Alice's. These red lights and one lane sections typically mean an abnormally long wait for opposing traffic to clear, and a good chance of being stuck behind slow traffic. If others frequent these roads maybe someone can advise when these closures are no longer in effect. Because in the meantime these kind of kill the fun of driving these stretches of road.

Alright, here is the planned route for tomorrow. Direction in order are dated and labeled part 1 and part 2 due to the max amoutn of stops. Lol. the route is only the highlighted portion, ignore other random pindrops as those are simply for later use. I will be leaving Stockton around 9. Stopping at Alice's for the first meal. Join me for all or part. Just txt or shoot me a PM for my number if you don't have it.

Nice route but you're missing the SF/Marin part!

Jealous though, probably won't be doing too many mid-week drives for a while.
