Perhaps Tslick will chime in.

Welcome Tpman

I see etyu is lazy

What are you looking for, cruising or canyon driving? do a search for so cal runs to get an idea what we've been up to.

One of these days someone like etyu, slklove, or you will call for a run. Maybe cyberdrakon will break out his wide body

Here's an example, out cruising a canyon today... San Gabriel Canyon Rd...

Eddie, I've got a lot of free time since I'm retired. Enough of work.. time to play.

Saturday's fine with me.

By the way, does that video look pixelated?

I'd nominate Tslick (since he's free from regular work duties ).

My suggestion would be the one outlined by Tslick above (Seal Beach to Palos Verdes), looks good and I haven't been to that area.

What's a good Saturday in February? (prolly best after Feb 7-8 weekend). What time do we meet and where in Seal Beach?

Perhaps the others can chime In? Cyberdrakon, slkluv, kungfudevil, V8SLK (haven't seen his post for a long while), Hairypet, Sid and other SoCal members?

Hey guys

Ive actually been interested in doing a run as of late - this past weekend I drove around alot with the top down as it was 80~ in areas. Drove down to the beach, about halfway down to San Diego and so on for no reason other then to drive and enjoy the good weather.

I was out of the country until recently but now im back at my job and things are starting to get steady again. Most weekends work for me if I have a week or 2 notice.

We could set it for Feb 21, Saturday, assemble/chat between 9am to 9:30am. (We could use Feb 28 as a reserve/alternative), drive time is around 1 1/2 hr roughly, lunch perhaps.

I think Tslick meant to meet at: Joe's Crab Shack, 6550 E Marina Dr, Long Beach, CA 90803. Follow route as outlined by Tslick (aka pathfinder) on post #7 above.

Tentative list (add to list as needed):

1. Tpman
2. etyu
