Sure - if we want to meet a little earlier and get coffee... there's a Starsbuck off of 92 in Foster City (Foster City Blvd exit). For folks coming on 101, you'd get on 92 East and take 2nd exit (last exit b4 bridge).

Caveat is that we have to finish the coffee before driving - I tried taking coffee somewhere, and had the hardest time to keep it from spilling.

WOW...akif, are you into something? You want to meet a little earlier than 8:45 am I reading this right? We're talking about Pacific time, right?..hahahahahahahaha! just giving you a hard time

Hey having coffee before we go sounds good to me..I'll be there @ 8am so we have enough time to finish up the coffee and get our adrenaline fix before we drive anyone else who's meeting with us?

Coming from 101 San Jose, w/c exit should I take?

It's early enough so I'll just stay up the whole night, and get some sleep during the drive

101 N -> 92 East -> Foster City Blvd Exit -> Follow the road RIGHT onto Metro Center Blvd -> Starbucks on your left

When you take the exit, there's an OSH right in front of you, that's where you follow the road to the right. Starbucks is on your left before the 1st signal. At the signal (Shell Blvd), there's a Costco on your right. Make a U-turn to Starbucks.

Try not to be late. I have to give out the drive packets and start the short drivers meeting at 9:10 am, so we can leave by 9:30 am.
F.Y.I., from Starbucks in Foster City, it should take 25 minutes to get up on Skyline to Alice's, BTW it is a nice drive. Look out for the cops!

Good news:
I scored again today at Rector Porsche!

I think it's more of a Harry and Lloyd...hehehehehe! oooops, akif might not like it

so how many cars do we have so far?

I'm trying to get some gift certificate to AJ's Auto Detailing here in San Jose for our trip but I haven't heard from them..like what I said, hopefully it goes thru.
