"Russian River Fun Run" - what day?

Thanks BoxsterBob - San Carlos!

After Boxsterbob's previous post, george g and I have been talking about having a day road trip up to the Russian River to have lunch at the Union Hotel. Ron aka offshore...lives in Rohnert Park is willing to help plan a awesome spirited drive afterwards.

Two dates in June are being considered:
Saturday June 12th
or
Saturday June 19th

If you are interested in going, what day would work for you? Answer the poll (you can check both days, if either day is ok)
more details to follow...

The scenic drive on Bohemian Highway, with those charming townships forgotten by time: Freestone, Occidental and Monte Rio.
The Bohemian Highway is just 60 miles north of San Francisco (about an hour and a half's drive).
Wherever you are along the Bohemian Highway, you are surrounded by nature's grandest giants: the magnificent redwoods.



The Pacific Ocean lies 10 miles west of the Bohemian Highway in the form of a series of beaches stretching 17 miles from north to south as part of the Sonoma Coast State Beach system.

Regardless of which road we take, you will be rewarded with the opportunity to see something unique along the way.


However, if travel permits, we could take the road less traveled but all the more spectacular - that is
Coleman Valley Road from downtown Occidental. At its highest point you can see both the Pacific Ocean to the west and the forested valleys to the east.

This visceral vantage point is all the reason anyone needs to visit the area along the Bohemian Highway

Dede June 12th and 13th are the BIG GGR AX days at Alameda so some conflict may come up with some of the Babblers. I've been working with DocDanRacy to get some sponsorship for the event and should be there one of the days. If you want to go the Bohemian Hwy route then, after lunch at The Union, we could drive The Bohemian to Hwy 116 River Road at Monte Rio and go through Duncan's Mills (great bakery and coffee shop as well as old railroad cars) and come out on Hwy 1 at Jenner, then the group could head back south and go through Bodega Bay (the best clam chowder on the left coast at Spud Point Marina, great crab sandwiches too) and whomever wants to can continue south on Hwy 1, or we can head back to the 101 through Bodega (St. Teresa's church where a scene from The Birds was filmed) to Sebastopol for your trip home. An alternate to Bohemian Hwy is Coleman Valley Road, west out of Occidental, a challenging narrow two lane road that has some major twisties, cow slaloms and an awesome view down to Hwy 1. Put the tops down and bring your cameras as both routes are awesome.

I voted the 19th but with notice either date could work. Sounds like fun!

why pick a date that conflicts with an event that has been on the calendar for over 4 months now?

Before I posted the poll, I checked Babblers calendar and did not see anything posted on those 2 dates.
(June 12th & 19th) I mentioned over a month ago if people would post their events on the Babblers calendar, that way one would not have a conflict. I also said I would gladly post events on the calendar for people if they would let me know.
http://www.babblers.org/forums/showt...light=calendar
I can't keep track of all the autox's, posting, other events, etc from PCA or other websites. Offshore told me after I posted "Russian River Fun Run" there was a autox the weekend of the 12th-13th.

Anyways, nothing is final yet. Just trying to get a idea of what people are interested in for the month of June. May is not going to work, too many things already planned for a few people. And I am sure July will be busy for most folks...with vacation, etc.

Doc did you want to join us on the "Russian River Fun Run" ? What days are good for you?
