Wrench OR Drive this Sat (07/12)

Folks, need your help with this one. What do you think about a get together this weekend, specifically, Saturday the 12th? Here are the options :

1) Go for an early drive, then finish it off with a brunch/lunch/picnic-lunch. We'll need to pick the drive (while avoiding the smoke-filled areas). Mt. Hamilton comes to mind.

2) Wrench at Efren(cas951)'s place. Efren needs to do his belts, and check a leak from the right side spark plugs/o-ring (he still has to order parts though). I'm sure between all of us we can find other work items as well

Based on who can make it (and to which of the two above), we can decide on which option to take. Please also try to indicate if there is a specific drive you'd prefer (for option 1) or if you'd like to do any work on your car (option 2).

Good eyes Dede (as always, I might add)! Are you going to be able to make it this Sat?

I am still working on whether or not I would attend, since we just back from Tahoe. I haven't even detailed/washed my car yet from the vacation. I will let you know asap.
BTW, I think you might find Mt. Ham a bit on the "Hot" side. I was up there about a month ago and down the backside into Livermore area. At that time of the year it was very hot with the top down. Maybe a drive up Skyline to Half Moon Bay for lunch might be a consideration. I would say the ocean would be a natural air conditioner. Or some winery's in the Los Gatos mountains. Just my 2 cents.

Great suggestions Dede! I know Voxster will definitely like the Los Gatos wineries idea

Skyline-84W-1N-Half-moon bay should be a nice drive as well.

Excellent question Efren It does look like everyone (well, almost everyone) is itching for a drive.

So, once we figure out the specific drive, then we can determine the venue. Tentatively, we could meet by Santana Row at, say, 9am, take in some of the exotics they have there, and leave at around 10am for the drive.

For the drive itself, I liked Dede's idea of the Half Moon Bay drive (hwy9-skyline-84-1north-half moon bay). Anyone else has any preferences/recommendations?

You might go to Half Moon Bay Brewery for lunch in Princeton by the Sea/Marina or go south to Davenport at the Roadhouse or Durate's Tavern in Pescadero.

BigB I will PM you some driving destinations/suggestions I have on my blog.

Another great place in Half Moon Bay is Sam's Chowder House (right before Princeton By The Sea) under new management for about year now, great food and has a back deck eating area to view the ocean.
