Question Mt. Diablo drive/tour soon anyone?

Would anybody be interested in getting together for a drive up to Mt. Diablo (Walnut Creek area) sometime soon on a Saturday or Sunday morning? Springtime would be the best.............Summer too hot.
Lots of picnic grounds for a picnic lunch and 360 degree panorama views at the top.

Here are some road maps with more accurate directions if anybody is interested: http://www.mdia.org/parkmap.htm

Maybe around March 10th? That's if the weather is clear and fairly warm without rain of course. Or the drive could just be a spontaneous week-end day all depending on if your available, weather and everyone's mood.

March 10 sounds good. I haven't been on that run for quite a while. Great view on a clear day.

As long as you don't need a commitment now, I may be in, dedes.

Thanks!

P.S. - Funny, but I ended up in that neighborhood today. I drove up Claremont from Berkeley, then to 24 E and exited on Diablo or something (I don't know the area), where I meandered before finding 24 W to return.

Provided life doesn't get in the way, I'm sure Joanie and I can be persuaded to join in the festivities. San Carlos is spittin' distance from San Mateo. Fashion Island off 92 is a good meeting local.

I concur..the parking lot is big and empty enough to fit all of us...the part in front of the ice skating rink would be the perfect spot imho..

I think I might be able to meet you guys up there. Only a hour away from mi casa and the car could use a good drive.
