Mt Palomar/Anza Borrego Apr 7 2012 meet

It was great to meet everyone today, namely:

1. Durk (Durkatlon), thanks for being the Pathfinder
2. Peter (PWSLK), please tell Jan thanks for the delicious home-made fried Wontons
3. Pablo (Bleen), thanks for waking up early :D, and great to meet Christie too
4. Paul (mbpaul), the R170 looks not a day older from when I first saw it
5. Guy (gizx1020), great to meet a relatively new member and making the 135 mile trip for the meet-and-drive, pewter is an awesome color and those "winter chrome" wheels are the bomb :tu:
6. Duane (DuaneC63), the C63 with its dark colored theme is aggressive looking and the exhaust sounds super
7. Ed (Sentine1), great to see another 55; hope the mate did OK and did not get car sick :)


Sorry I could not stay and enjoy a pint at the Stone Brewery. Please post up your photos.

Thanks for the pictures Eddy! I just went through mine and the ones from the lunch were all blurry. I really need a better camera. I'll just add these two. First one at the desert overlook and the last at Stone Brewery with Paul and Guy. The brewery was insanely packed. The huge parking lot was filled to capacity and people were parking whereever they could leave their car: dirt lots, parallel to curbs, practically stacked two to a space. Crazy place...

I had a great time today. It was just great weather and fun people. It was my privilege to be the pathfinder and I didn't lose anyone today! :D

Great meeting everyone and looking forward to the next one, and the June Yosemite trip!!!! Get it done, Pablo!! :D

Rick Clemson shot our group going up Palomar. The page with the pix can be found here. I'm missing Sentine1 but I think everyone else is there, several people multiple shots.

Here's the thumbnails:

1904 photography also shot our group. Only a few cars are on his website, but Sentine1 is there this time. Yay!!

I'm almost certain there was a 3rd guy shooting yesterday but I haven't been able to find any other galleries yet. If anyone caught a banner or something with a name on it perhaps?

Thank you Durk for your time and efforts on making this a fun and safe outing.:tu:
It's always nice to see familiar faces and meet some new members also.
I'm glad I had a chance to make part of the run with you guys, but as you can see from the last pictures, the reasons I had to get back:)
I think one of the kids collected over $32 in those eggs!

Group buy on Lotto, be it Mega or Super, should we start a list? Durk gets to pick/predict the winning numbers.



Just kidding.
