Thursday 5/10 caravan to SoCal for TBHL

We'll depart sometime Thursday afternoon - hopefully just after lunch (by 1PM) and drive to SoCal. Leslie Fisher (in SoCal) is coordinating the SoCal caravan to Vegas on Friday and she's planning a dinner on Thursday night in Ontario (probably at Claim Jumper - a terrific place to eat).

Re: Thursday 5/10 caravan to SoCal for TBHL

Dan, we would like to join you on Thursday 5/10.

A few questions/issues.
The dinner starts at 7:30. Can we get there in 6 hours? The last 15 miles could take an hour.

Will Leslie suggest a place to stay?

Would you consider starting the drive from the "park and go" or whatever lot at 680 and north Mission blvd, across from McDonald's. Easy to get to from San Jose and most places, and right where we need to be to start the trip.

Re: Thursday 5/10 caravan to SoCal for TBHL

Hey There!

I have to agree on the time. The minute you get into SoCal, you will be fighting traffic. I would recommend a 12 noon departure for you guys. Also, we can push the dinner back to 8pm.

As for hotel, Dan and I have been tossing this one around a bit. I suggested a hotel near the Ontario Mills, some +s and -s

+ It is the location where we will be meeting for the Friday Drive

+ There is a nice mall, movie theatres and restraunts (an Ihop for breakfast) even though you will not have tons of time there. I will provide you with some recommended breakfast stops

- Its in Ontario which is a new city. The only thing there is the already mentioned, mall, food, etc. The hotels are Courtyard Marriot and AmeriSuite type hotels. Nothing old and run down, nothing fantastic.

I just figured get you guys where you are starting from to make Friday without adventure.

Hey, I am here to help you guys. I want all of you here the funnest way possible!

Lemme know!

Leslie

Re: Thursday 5/10 caravan to SoCal for TBHL

Leslie, thanks for the response.

For us at least you can throw out the negative. After the drive, and dinner, we will be ready for bed.

Breakfast at IHop? Thought we were meeting at KK!

AAA book says Amerisuites and Country Suites at the Mills Mall give discounts. Is this the right place?

Looking forward to you and Dan's plan.

Hey There!

Yeah. The two you mention are the correct ones. I think they are on Mills Way.

KK for breakfast. Well, maybe you, but I know the sugar high from a few KKs will create an "etertaining leslie". I think a doughnut and a trip to Ihop and then meet at the KK is the safest plan for me!
