9/8 - NorCal - Bay Area / Sacramento - Coast Drive North

Hello Gang,

Drive planned for September 8th 2012. We will be hitting the cost this drive and heading north. There will be a few photo stops along the way to get some great group images. We will be covering 189 miles, which will start and end in the North Bay Area.

Please bring a 2-way radio if you can, as this will help ensure we can monitor the group.

Meeting location for the drive

Date: September 8th 2012
Time: 9:00-9:300am
Locations: Parking lot on the corner of HWY 1 and Flamingo Road (Shoreline Cleaners)
Address: 201 Flamingo Road, Mill Valley, CA 94941

Café Del Soul is around the corner for coffee so park in the lot as listed above and walk over for coffee. Easier to get everyone in and out of that location

Sacramento Caravan to drive meeting spot
Time: 7:40am – Leaving ON THE DOT!
Address: Chevron, 4800 West Capitol Avenue, West Sacramento, CA 95691

As usual to be added to be added to my drives list email me at norcal.drivers@gmail.com

Hwy. 1 on a weekend can be busy, but hopefully since it's after Labor Day it should be less busy. After Bodega Bay traffic seems to thin out a bit. As for the road cutting across to Healdsburg I'm not sure which road it is so maybe Adam can shed light on it. Either way it is about as scenic as it gets.

The road is smooth in almost all spots, but if you pull off into any of the scenic overlooks expect a small amount of gravel.

I never post route details on my drives to make sure there is not lurking CHP eyes. Roads will be pretty smooth for most of it. There are the usual patches of slight bumpy road but those are short and far between. So 98% smooth with a little bump but nothing crazy like Mines Run.

See above. Only the usual big bumps may cause you to rub a little here and there. Time to run smaller tires HAHA.

I love my tires.

That's good that it's smooth though. shouldn't be too much of a problem.
I hope the norcal drive site doesn't give too much detail to 5-0 either Lol.
