Road Trip!

I've been having fun with the Camaro for the past week. Now it's time to get it out on the road. We are heading west, and then planning on going up the coast. I'll post pics of the adventure as we go...

Our family all went to San Diego last summer. Awesome drive! I wasn't able to take the Camaro though. 6 kids would be a little cramped! We planned to hit the Canyon on the way back, but got sidetracked and hit up a D-backs game instead.

Great pics!

We only have 4. I would need the duramax for 6.

Got it up to 24.5 from Bakersfield to SF! Can't go wrong with a ZL1 though.

Day 3
Traffic on I5 was moving pretty good today. Made good time to SF. Only complaint. EVERYONE drives in the left lane!
SF from our hotel.


SS from hotel



Bay Bridge





These are for Ivan









The Rock


Pay to pee


Wrestlers never stop training


I got to play with a few M3s getting on the Golden Gate Bridge. Nothing too crazy. Just a little American muscle flex.


Love


Time for a beer!

Day 4
No driving adventures for today. We took the BART across the bay to SF today, and walked all around SF. Pier 1 to Fisherman's Wharf, up Hyde St to Lombard, through China town to Union Square Park, and back on the BART to Oakland. Fun day. Time to start heading back tomorrow AM. Vegas tomorrow!

Day 5
We had breakfast at a place called Cafe Aquarius. This place was delicious! http://www.cafeaquarius.net/

I wanted to come back down the coast. We wanted to make better time though, so back to I5 we went. Remember this is the road where everyone drives in the left lane. We made it to Vegas about 6pm. We would have made it a little earlier, but the wife saw the outlet mall at the CA/NV border.

I immediately missed the SF temperatures (40 degree temp shift). We had some dinner at New York New York, and then walked the strip and Fremont.

Cheaters Hotel


Fremont

Made it home last night.
6 days, 4 states, & over 2400 miles! I couldn't think of a better way to break in the Camaro. Here's a few last pics.

Dirty Camaro & a wagon

We had a blast on the trip. The SS is so sweet out on the road. Hopefully there will be another road trip in early May!
