San Diego Road Trip - 6/4/10
 
Hi all,

If anyone is interested, and off this Friday, 6/4/10, I'm planning a ride from the Mira Mesa area to Palomar Mtn. I'll probably head down to Borrego Springs for lunch afterward. I'm thinking about starting around 9 am.

let me know! I can tailor the drive, if needed...it's only me right now. :laugh:

Thanks,
Michael J.

Michael_Js 06-02-2010 05:36 PM

Ok, so far, only ARod55 and myself. G, I'll look for a message tomorrow evening/night if you're going to make it. We could meet you by the Chevron Station by North County Fair around 9:25 ~ 9:30 am ish...

We could plan more of these also for those who have some days off here and there. Weekends are so crowded! ;)

Laters...

I may join this - even though my car will be dirty!

Where exactly will the meet-up be?
Mira Mesa or North County Fair?
(I live in Santee)

Michael_Js 06-03-2010 01:26 AM

Meetup is up to you. What's easier to get to? Mira Mesa directly off of I15, or Via Rancho Parkway, directly off of I15?

There will be 2 of us at the Mira Mesa Park n Ride at 9am, if that's easier ;)
Thanks,
Michael J.

Oh, my car is dirty and not washing it until Saturday, to be ready for the car show on Sunday morning ;)

ARod - Armando & his lovely wife
VChula - Vance
and I had a great day & drive! Palomar Mountain/Observatory was beautiful! great drive up S6 and down S7!
Delicious lunch in Borrego Springs! Thanks again for the lunch guys! ;)

I did about 170 miles ;) Still averaged over 17 mpg - not sure how since all the mountain roads mostly saw 3rd & 4th ;)

The roads were great! traffic not too bad; the cars got lots of head turns ;)

Great day! Armando will be planning a Barrett Junction Drive and Vance an Idllywild Drive ;) Stay tuned...

My Pictures (didn't take many):

Yes, thanks! Love the sidemarker lights! They look very sharp - day or night! ;)

No issue with law enforcement, yet ;)

Thanks! yes, it really was a beautiful day! Hit about 95 deg in Borrego Springs, but still nice enough to sit outside to enjoy our lunch ;)

Great Cruise
 
Thanks Michael and Vance we had a lot of fun on the cruise, I just could not keep up with you guys. I put 221 miles on the Camaro, now I have to shut her down for the rest of the month, she needs her rest, ha,ha. Well post pictures soon. I have to wash her tomorrow to get all the dead bugs off for the sunday car Show. thanks again we had lots of fun. Mando & Alice:coolpics:

Michael_Js 06-04-2010 07:04 PM

it was fun Mando - and thanks Alice!

Keeping up was not an issue and I'm glad you drove a speed you were comfortable with. As promised, I waited at all intersection changes ;) Oh, put some miles on her! :) She won't break! Looking forward to your pictures...

Yes, MAJOR wash tomorrow morning for The Beast! :)

VChula 06-04-2010 09:15 PM

Thanks to Michael for organizing this, and thanks to Armando's wife, Alice, for picking up the lunch tab!

My front end and hood have now been cleared of the bug carnage.

My car definitely needs larger sway bars!

My average mpg for the drive was 20.7.

Michael_Js 06-04-2010 11:42 PM

Wow! great MPG! ;) Yup, upgrade that suspension! :) Clean :) I can't wait for tomorrow morning for the wash!

Until Sunday! :)

No problem! That's one of my motorcycle ride routes - lots of fun! We have to have lunch at Mother's Restaurant when it's open - great food!

DET MSCL 06-05-2010 07:56 PM

Thanks for sharing photos and experiences...I am southbound on the Cajon Pass on I-15 south...see you all at D&Bs tomorrow!
