This a pay your own way event. This means even me the organizer pays my own way to attend. Organizing drives is my hobby and I enjoy putting the events on. I also pay for the website and store system out of my own pocket to make sharing information and registering easier on everyone. I am doing this drive/event as several people asked me to do it so here you go.

Itinerary of activities for the weekend
Day 1: Drivers Day
Drive from Northern California to Pasadena along fun and twisty back roads. We are avoiding as much freeway as possible in order to have a fun drive VS a speed and distance drive. Lunch will be in San Luis Obispo at the Firestone Grill.
For this drive the we request you have a Motorola brand radio that can do sub-chennels. This is for safety reason as well as to ensure the group stays together. The cheap radios don't work so just buy a Motorola.
