Sacramento Valley SLK Enthusiasts November 14th 2015 road trip West Sac.-Rio Vista- Lodi:

Meet: at 10:30am at the Nugget Market at 2000 Towne Center Plaza, West Sacramento., CA.
https://www.nuggetmarket.com/locations/west-sacramento/


This will be a great trip. We will head down to Rio Vista driving on the West side of the Sacramento river through Yolo/Solano counties and through so many vineyards you will feel like you are almost in Napa or Italy. The road has a couple of spots where they are a bit rough and bumpy but overall 95% is a good road. We will see a beautiful panoramic view once we get up on the levee where the road also twists and turns a little bit. We will then board the Real McCoy Ferry for a 5 minute ride to arrive in Rio Vista. The ferry can hold only 6 cars at a time and runs every 20 minutes so we might have to wait a little bit there for everybody to get across river. We will put our tops up and hit Hwy 12 and head East to Lodi. This area is known for winds and large trucks. They are also doing a little road work here trying to enlarge the roads, speed limit is 55. We may get interlopers here can’t avoid that but once we turn left on DeVries we can regroup.

Be sure to bring your walkie-talkies. We will have maps a little later.

Depart at 11:30am down Jefferson Blvd to Hwy. 84 to the Real McCoy Ferry.
