Arrow Saturday 5/25 DRIVE: Pacifica/Hwy 1/Skyline Cruise!

More details to come, but mark your calendars folks... our next major DRIVE event will be Saturday May 25! The voting on the 86DRIVE site is now concluded, the early morning time won by a resounding 78% vote! So we will be meeting at 7:30AM and departure target of 8:00AM.

Many of you will remember the great cruise down Devil's Slide we did in March... the last time many of us were able to take that infamous stretch of Hwy 1 before it closed for good a few days later. Well we are going to return now for something a little different... a chance to drive THE MOST NEWEST TUNNEL IN CALIFORNIA! The Tom Lantos Tunnels opened on March 25, 2013 and are the first new tunnels to be constructed in California since the Caldecott Tunnels were completed in 1964.

BTW I hear the tunnels are super state-of-the-art and have sophisticated cameras with 24/7 monitoring, so let's not get too dramatic in there.

MEETING POINT 7:30AM:
Let's meet Saturday 5/25, 7:30 AM at the Starbucks at Linda Mar Shopping Center, Pacifica, CA. We will begin the drive at 8:00AM.
Google Maps link to the location: http://goo.gl/maps/JD1zt

ROUTE 8:00AM - 10:00AM:
We will take Hwy 1 south through the Tom Lantos Tunnels, and pass through Half Moon Bay to San Gregorio State Beach. We'll stop there for a group photo like last time, and then do some more driving after that. At our final stop we will probably grab some brunch/lunch somewhere, perhaps at Alice's.

Post-Drive Meet - 10:00AM:
If anyone can't meet us for the drive but wants to meet up at 10 we will be stopping at Alice's around that time. Alice's is at the intersection of Skyline Hwy 35 and Hwy 84.

Hope you can join us!

Please bring FRS walkie talkie radios if you have them!

Hey Plato - Were you thinking something like this for the route? http://goo.gl/maps/9z1k2

I'll have to bail at the turn onto Skyline as I made an appointment at Burlingame Mufflers for some exhaust work at 10am, but definitely looking forward to the first leg of the drive.

Let's hope the tunnel cameras don't also have microphones...

If the result is that the drive is in the morning, then I'm going to skip it cause I won't be able to make it. Might be able to meet up with you guys later but not sure.

yeah that looks pretty good. or alternatively take something like 84 instead of 92. And for those who refuse to wake up early or can't make it that early, we could plan a lunch stop somewhere after that people can join us at.

Bump . I have to wait for my daughter's schedule Wed/Thurs to see if I can make this drive.

And also wanted to say PMok has the sickest looking signature IMO. Gotta teach me that one of these days

Tunnel = Perfect Exhaust Showoff.
20ish Twins in the tunnel at the same time = Mayhem = EarPlugs recommended. (Not for us, for the normal car folks).
Most of us will be looking forward to hear that boxer engine resonating in the tunnel.

Monday bump.

According to ma work schedule, it's "Thursday" so I'll be on my best behavior for the rest week to perhaps be granted a free-me card so I may drive 5/25.
