I won't be able to join the cruise, but I might be able to stop by the starting place.

I originally planned to drive my father-in-law that Saturday morning to the Cars & Coffee. Maybe we can leave earlier and head to El Segundo, or cancel the CnC and head to the starting point of this cruise altogether.

If the caravan is leaving McDonald's in El Segundo at 9AM, what's the earliest time folks will be there?

I plan to be there around 8 traffic (or the lack thereof) permitting.

It's possible that my sweetheart and I may be able to get there in time to greet you, Patrick- it's been some time since we've been able to chat.

I'd certainly like to see you- even if for only a short time.

Likewise, Jim. This goes with the rest of the folks who are coming to join the cruise and I've met before.

weather

So I checked the weather for tomorrow and it looks like we will have anything from partly cloudy/sunny skies to thunderstorms. The drive is still on, I'll just have to stick an umbrella in the trunk (if I don't it will pour rain for sure). The last time we did this cruise, we had the same forecast and it turned out to be FANTASTIC weather. Keep your fingers crossed and we'll see you in the morning.......Dennis

I can't make it either this time. Too much going on this weekend.
I'll definitely be there for Nik's NorCal ride down the coast on May 31.
I'm sure everyone will have a great ride tomorrow.
Take lots of pix!

Jeff

Hi guys,

Very bummed, but I won't be able to join everyone tomorrow. Still fine tuning some engine issues.

I'm sure you're going to have a great time. Hope to make it in the future.

Andrew
