Thanks to all who took the poll for the upcoming San Diego trip! I have copied the results from Survey Monkey below.
In the next week or so I will put together a run map with estimated run times. Remember this trip can not take place without some help from members that are familiar with the San Diego area to help lead the run up to Julian. The road twists with hairpin turns at some points and are single lane so we need to break groups up into cars of 10 or less. Please contact me if you would like to volunteer. Hope to post this as a Idea and/or Upcoming in the next week or so.
I will also post some links to Julian so you can surf around and plan on things you would like to see and visit. For those who might want to spend the night there are a few B&B's in and near the town. This is still in the planning stage and I am new at putting together a run so be kind.
Getting to Julian is not that hard. Simple directions can be given. Anyone can take hwy 78 east from I-15 and you will arrive in Julian. Take hwy 79 south out of Julian and you end up on I-8. Yes there are two 15 mph hairpin turns on 79. But the roads are okay if you take it easy. 78 is a very fun drive and takes you right by Dudley's Bakery on the way to Julian.
Looking forward to a drive.
Yes, it is a very easy run and Dudley's is right along the route but I have found some people can pass by the bakery without seeing it. If we meet first in San Diego, we will take the I-8 to the 67 up through El Cajon, Santee, Lakeside, Ramona then hit the 78. I am also thinking of contacting The Lodge to see if we can use them as a meeting place. This turn off is very easy to miss too. Maybe you can lead those who are not familiar with the turn off.
I just received an email from the dealer. It reads:
"Let's meet up at the Sonic Drive-In in Santee! We can have dinner or enjoy one of the delicious shakes, limeades or cooling flavored ice teas and talk about our Fabulous cars under the summer stars.
So put on your saddle shoes and meet us there. Be there or Be square!!
