Next So Cal MBShop GTG

Since We wont be able to do phil's moose lodge, lets schedule a GTG elsewhere.

Any ideas for date/time?

Any Ideas for location?

Reply here with your ideas so we can get this organized.

I think a nice park or beach location with good parking lot would work well. BBQ access is a must as well.

I like the Peterson idea or.........


I winery day in Temecula. I've brought it up in the past and I know it will be popular .

Not all of our members will be able to do wine tasting but everyone can certainly attend a BBQ. There are several parks within minutes of the wineries and one decent sized park near my place. All the parks have tables, grilles and one has more than enough parking space.

I'm thinking sometime in the middle of March on a Saturday or Sunday, whatever works best. Maybe we can carpool to the wineries around 11AM and then go to the park for a BBQ around 1:30PM?

If you like this idea please don't hesitate to add any suggestions.

Chance for a neat photo op of a big long line of MB's coming down/going up the 27% grade of Los Gatos Road. You know which one I mean John (try running it at 45+mph )

You V8 guys! It would be real easy to do it down hill at 45 - just requires a good driver, a reasonably strong death wish, and the ability to ignore the spectacular views and peaceful silence seldom found in SoCal. I might have the ponies in my 6 to do it uphill at 45, but the skill/nerve is another issue we won't explore here - I'd ride with you when you do it, however!

A photo taken from the bottom would look like a string of MBs mounted on the face of Half Dome, surrounded by avocado orchards!!!

I just spoke to Phil (the partsman) about having it at the beach. How nice is it for us So. Cal guys to show off the weather and the beach! I have a 32' toy box that I can tow out there and set it up. Phil will give you more specifics.
Intersted?

Afshin:

The road is NNW of Fallbrook, about midway between Fallbrook and Elsinore, tucked against Camp Pendleton. If you take Clinton Keith road from the freeway west up into the hills, you will come onto a plateau next to the Nature Conservency (Great hiking and scenery as well), and curve left around the conservency on this plateau. All of a sudden the world ends - you come to a steep drop off with spectacular views for 10-20 miles over avacado tree covered hills with ranch houses on most peaks, and a spider web of twisty roads through the valleys and hills. That is Los Gatos road. The roads go through DeLuz (population about 20, one room schoolhouse) and end up on the Pendleton side of Fallbrook, almost by the east gate.

A real nice day trip to try is Temecula to Los Gatos/Nature Conservancy for a leg stretch, (couple miles hike in to the oldest adobe in Riverside county - a remote land grant rancho from the past), down Clinton Keith to Elsinore, out the Ortega to lunch in San Juan Capistrano, then I-5 to Oceanside and back over to Temecula. We start in San Juan and do the route in reverse.

Phil:

A beach BBQ works for us as well! Seal Beach has some decent facilities.

Afshin,

From Los Gatos Road (up near the top), on a clear day, one can see the San Diego skyline as well as the some of the surface streets of Carlsbad. One can also watch the beach in Oceanside, even make out people with field glasses. But you gotta know where to look.
