Sounds like fun, San Diego folks meet at Oceanside Harbor or Denny's for the drive up?

In it to win it! LA Peeps, lets meet at Neptune's Net and head through Malibu mountains to get there! Just kidding....lol

I may be able to make this one too. Since it is closer I may get away with going solo, or maybe get my daughter to go with me for fun.

yup 6 so far confirmed that will be driving down saturday night from vegas...... all they ask is if we can provide them where we all are meeting up in the morning and the route that we're talking, so they can book hotel near the area

I will see if I can rally up a couple from the VC area. Anyone care if an EVO X also joins in at the tail?

I am now on the fence also as my Daughter has asked to go to one of the Halloween haunts this weekend. (Knotts or Universal) Not an issue except I am felling very under the weather at the moment so that may get postponed until next weekend....which would not work well obviously. Will see what happens this weekend.

For those of you attending, we will have Motorola 2-Way radios with us again. I currently have a total of 10 radios to share with the group. If you happen to own a Motorola 2 way radio that is a 22 channel FRS/GMRS radio, please feel free to bring it along and we will program it to the same channel. I use the Motorola MH230R Radios and will probably pick up a couple more 35 mile radios (like the Motorola MR350R or MT352R).

Took some Zinc, it was too late...LOL Over the bad stuff but still have a bad cough so I stayed in this weekend. Will see what happens closer to the weekend. If I am able to make it I will need to be back home by 2PM so it would be cutting it too close to try to do both.

Most likely can make it back by 2, but it will be close and will make for a long day of driving. It is about 60 miles to the meeting point, then the fun run drive, then back home, then back to Buena Park then back home that night. Maybe 350 miles??? Uggg...lol.

Sorry guys, I am going to sit this run out. Sucks, but had to make the decision to be sane for the day. Again, taking my daughter and her friend to Knott's for the Haunt. The run will require too long of a day to stay energetic through the night.

I hope you all have TONS of fun and a safe drive. I will catch up on the next one!!!

Stacy - Saw your post about the code. I hope you get it fixed quickly to get back on the road proper.

San Diego/Temucula drivers unite! Can we decide on a meeting point? Denny's Oceanside works for me, or off 15 for the Temecula people?

Back home drinking red wine and eating pizza. Feeling my 1/4 Italian heritage, and reflecting on a great day in the Angeles Forrest (or dead trees, whatever that was). Thanks everyone, let's do again soon. Check the red forum, we were spotted by a friendly.

Got uber sick last night and haven't been conscious till now. I'm cursed when it comes to events :(

Looked like fun with a good turnout...disappointed I couldn't make it out.

Yeah I missed it too and I was the one that mentioned doing it! Power went out last night and my alarm didn't go off. My wife really wanted to go and she's almost 7 months pregnant with twins, so probably better that we didn't make it. I wouldn't be able to slow down to keep her comfortable, hehe.
