i dont think the sun is a big deal. im worried that we may not be anticipating enough time for breaks....gassing up our cars and eating in such a big group is going to take forever! Didn't local stations run out of gas last year? Have we planned for that?
im nervous we'll be late and i dont want to miss one minute of c5fest

I think IBM/2SS/RS/LS3 compensated for breaks in his itinerary. Although, we SoCalers can't get our act together

yes his itinerary did allow for breaks (nice job btw! very thorough ) but i think its a best case scenario. I anticipate things will take a lot longer when there's 90+ cars involved.

geeze socal! get it together...LOL
65 DAYS AND COUNTING!!!

Sounds like a plan. Maybe we can get a group buy on multiple Prii.

Just found the spot for the Bakersfield meet up. Some of you guys who went to the park with us for the BBQ, might remember.
I'll post later.
I need an approximate count from Fresno/modesto people.

and from Norcal, to make sure we have enough room.

Thank you and we shouldn't be at 90+ cars until we leave Cabazon.

If SoCal can be fueled by the time we get there, all the better.. or if we're way ahead of schedule, we can be fueled by the time SoCal gets there...

Quote:
Pleasanton to Bako (fuel up) is 260 miles (EB 580 - EB 205 - NB 5 - EB 120 - SB 99) picking up Sac, Modesto/Merced and Fresno (stretch/break) and Bako (quick breakfast/fuel) (4 1/2 hrs to be safe).
at 70 MPH is just over 3.7 hours and at this point I think we'd be around 25-35 cars pulling into Bako

Quote:
Bako to Cabazon is 205 miles ( EB 58 - SB 395 - SB 15/215 - EB 10) meeting with SoCal (4 hrs/safe)
at 70 is under 3 hours and at 25-45 cars pulling into Cabazon.

I'd think between 30 & 40 and at most 50 by the time we hit Bako

Im personally not worried at all about heat... Even in the event of some sort of breakdown, there are going to be over 100 people to lend a hand/take care of each other.

I think the timing planned above is damn near perfect! An knowing us, We will be driving a tiny bit faster than the posted amount (by accident, of course).

Im just stoked, Ive got a co-pilot now, so Im ready to roll!

My 2 cents!
I doubt the temp will be in the 100s

The exit we are taking is Merle Haggard.
(This is where we met when we went to the park with SAChevy)
There are two gas stations accross from each other, as far as food , there is a jack in the box, a del taco, and a denny's.
I think we are going to try to park in the hotel parking lot. If that is not enough, I will try talking to someone at Three-way chevrolet.
They have an old building there that is completely empty, the only thing is we will need someone to open it up for us.
From Merle Haggard, we take junction to the 99 south, and another junction will get us right on the 58 east.
We won't have to worry about lights except for the one on Merle Haggard.
I'll get a google map drawn up.


So we have 5 from Bakersfield, about 10 from Fresno. I'm guessing about 10-15 more from norcal?

Hopefully the comm's can chime in to answer this question...We still haven't even decided when we are going to be arriving at Morongo Casino to meet up with NorCal...

Well, if we meet at Morongo at 1pm.. San Diego group will need to leave around 10am, to be on the safe side. 1h 56m drive for us, not including traffic.

Here we go....my 2cents:

So I cruised out to Blythe today for work and scoped out what I could on the limited time I had. I was not able to stop at this exit but scoped it as I went by.
I would like to move the meet up point out of Cabazon, east another 20 miles into North Palm Springs.
The exit is N Indian Canyon Drive, there is Shell on one side of the freeway and a Chevron the other. There is a Del Taco, Jack in the Box, Wendy’s and a truck stop.
From what I could see from the freeway there should be plenty of parking, and a few places to eat. I plan on making a road trip out there in the next 2 weeks to check it out, but wanted to get it out there for discussion.

It hasnt' been finalized for where the IE guys and girls are meeting but here is my thought on it.......


Is the plan still to have all the groups meet at the “Big Location” (Cabazon or Palm Springs). If so then my suggestion for the IE would be the Moreno Valley Mall at the 60/215. That would be in an area that could catch people from the 91 (riverside county portion), 15 and 215 south end Riverside county, and the 10/60 San Bernardino/ Rancho/fontana, Even High Desert people.
Let me know what you think?

I've been around the N Indian Canyon Dr area on my way to Glamis and if the Pilot is full of trucks we're screwed... I had a hard time parking my toyhauler because there were so many trucks..



Cabazon (Morongo Casino) has a ton of parking, Coco's Bakery, A&W, Panda Express, Hadley Fruit Orchards, Fatburger, LA Italian Kitchen, Nathan's hot dogs and ice cream at Haagen Daz (and that's just the food court). Food at the outlets includes: Ruby's Diner and several others..

The Morongo Travel Center has 32 pumps that all have 87, 89 & 91 octane..

Thanks for scoping this area out! We'll just have to see what everyone else wants to do, but from the looks of it, people so far are still shooting for Morongo Casino.

What we as SoCalers need to come to a decision/consensus on is what time we want to meet up with NorCal folk. I had suggested earlier that we meet them around 1pm and start rolling out no later than 2pm

Even assuming you could drive warp speed like the group did for the Duel in the Desert, factor in lunch or other stops, and don't forget a hundred or so Camaro's being checked out, it is 288 miles, likely arriving in their rush hour, we have at least 5 hours from Morongo, maybe more. So figure if we leave at 1:00PM, get there around 6:00PM? I would say earlier would be better, my 2 cents.
