A nice end-of-year run up to Palomar Mountain in North-East San Diego county for Saturday December 28th. We'll do it at a relatively leisurely pace because I still have paint drying on my car :D.

The meeting point would be the North County Fair (CLICK!!) shopping mall in south Escondido. This mall is apparently also called Westfield North County Mall, but I'm old school. We'll meet up at 9:30AM, leaving at 10:00AM to start the drive.

This shows a general area to meet at the North County Shopping Center. There's two gas stations (Chevron and Shell) across the street from the parking area. It's best to fill up the tanks before meeting in the parking area:



We'll leave at 10:00am from the mall parking. The likely route will take us to Ramona, Old Julian Highway, Santa Ysabel and then looping around to Palomar Mountain. We can stop in Santa Ysabel if anyone wants to buy some of their famous bread. At the top of Palomar we can take a look at the telescope if people are interested. We can do lunch at Mother's Kitchen up on the mountain itself, or if people don't want to chance a vegetarian restaurant, go back to Escondido for the Stone Brewery or somesuch.

Weather forecast calls for party cloudy and low 70s right now. Hopefully that'll hold.

Hope to see everyone there on the 28th!

Sounds like fun! I haven't been on an SLK run for some time, but my friends just got an R172, so hopefully they will be joining us! I will probably have 2 R170's along.

Would definitely love to go, my dad is in LA as well and I'm sure he'd love it but... I'm going to Big Sur that weekend.

Thanks for the invite, happy holidays and have an amazing 2014! :)

Thanks for the invite. I already have plans for Saturday but with a little more notice I would love to make the ride next time. BTW, I took my 1957 190SL up to Palomar several years ago. It was a fun ride, but above 4000 feet my little 4 banger was seriously sucking for air!!

Durk - thank you for the invite! Would have loved to make the drive down for the meet up, but we won't make it down south in time from where we are coming from that day.

Keep in the loop for the next one.

And Merry Christmas to all!

Wish I could come! Last (and first) time I went up to the observatory, I had a snowball fight with some friends and the exertion gave me hypoxia and I felt sick for the rest of the day. What a prat!:(

Durk did say, "We'll do it at a relatively leisurely pace because I still have paint drying on my car."

We will have to ascend slowly :biglaugh:
