2011 New Year's Day Drive - SF Peninsula

2011 New Year's Day Drive - SF Peninsula


I know a lot of us really enjoyed last year's drive.



However, from my perspective, I didn’t enjoy Alpine (due to the roughness of the road) and the fact we just kind of just abruptly ended the tour at skyline (no real end point to continue our discussions ). So I put together three possible routes.

Well it is offical... we have PCA liability coverage for the event

Last year there were three Highway Patrol with a stopped car near the 92 & 280 overpass. At least one was ticketed coming to the run. 280 should be avoided.

It looks like we're driving on Route 1. By a landslide.

Hey George, let's hope that's not a Freudian slip... Highway 1 isn't known for its stability.

clemson,

Glad you are going to make it! I will add you to the list. Hopefully tickets will not be a problem. You really can't get too much speed in the twisties

Regards,


James
