Calling all SoCal SLKs, we are planning a local run on Saturday April 25.

***NOTE THE TIME CHANGE***

Call time is 9:00 am.
Meeting point is:
Starbucks
32080 Clinton Keith Road
Wildomar, California 92595


Route will be through the rollercoaster De Luz area, planned to be like this:
https://maps.google.com/maps?saddr=32080+Clinton+Keith+Road,+Wildomar,+California+92595&daddr=33.50752,-117.2938398+to:33.5061641,-117.2254698+to:33.5091919,-117.1928033+to:33.4731591,-117.156468+to:33.4700809,-117.1807748+to:33.5004069,-117.2226392+to:33.4307198,-117.3230012+to:936+East+Mission+Road,+Fallbrook,+CA+92028&hl=en&ll=33.493021,-117.213135&spn=0.251957,0.324097&sll=33.444047,-117.281284&sspn=0.12605,0.162048&geocode=Fa6XAAId4vAC-SkfjBgjQYPcgDGXkE3-hNd49Q;FcBI_wEd8TwC-SntcEgZmYbcgDGE9ftmul4_lA;FXRD_wEdA0gD-SnVd938C4HcgDE1gWTAYSGRyg;FUdP_wEdnccD-SkdF0O4yIHcgDHWtwR84Obhow;FYfC_gEdjFUE-Snf7dyp8X_bgDEoiWb44hGOmw;FYC2_gEdmvYD-Smbq3b1BIDcgDHI5PvJsh4WoA;FfYs_wEdEVMD-SmZtPkHB4HcgDFS2NE9V-P__g;Fb8c_gEdB8sB-Sn1SF6ChofcgDHroMBxOCMVFw;Fa5y_QEdkQgD-SlBYMRy637cgDGQr5Yr-aCreA&oq=936+East+Mission+Road,+Fallbrook,+CA+92028&gl=us&mra=dpe&mrsp=7&sz=13&via=1,2,3,4,5,6,7&t=m&z=12

Post run meeting point after the run is:
Fallbook Shell
936 East Mission Road
Fallbrook, CA 92028
It's a good place to stop in case anyone gets lost or needs gas.

From there, we will caravan down to San Diego to Extraordinary Desserts:
1430 Union Street
San Diego, California 92101
It's a nice place for a light meal and (of course) dessert. We will likely arrive around 11:30 or 12:00. Parking is everyone for themselves, street parking is usually available.

Route to San Diego:
https://maps.google.com/maps?saddr=936+E+Mission+Rd,+Fallbrook,+CA+92028&daddr=Extraordinary+Desserts,+Union+Street,+San+Diego,+CA&hl=en&ll=33.048961,-117.163696&spn=1.008355,1.296387&sll=33.387182,-117.241711&sspn=0.015695,0.020256&geocode=Fa5y_QEdkQgD-SlBYMRy637cgDGQr5Yr-aCreA;FZlF8wEdeTAE-SGp1oMeKwgpUCljn9PprlTZgDGp1oMeKwgpUA&oq=extra&gl=us&mra=prev&t=m&z=10

This sounds cool. I was planning to put a clear bra on my car soon, so it sounds like now's the time.

Will discuss with wifey but I've promised her that I will be driving at a more reasonable and sedate pace.

What is the parking like at Extraordinary Dessert? Will we be able to park just south of it like near the Veterans Affairs Bldg or some office parking lot? Are they limited in terms of access?

Not a problem at all. I'm looking to avoid any issues before the cross country trip and on my 'last' run through the area.

Last time Durk and I went, we just parked on the street, there were several open and well marked stalls within a block on Beech St. It appears that the ramps in SD, including the veterans building, are closed on the weekend. The only other options are surface lots, which are worse than the street, IMO.

Well, the wife just told me that date is reserved for her mom's surprise 90th birthday party.


Apparently I didn't put it in my calendar :frown:

This sounds like a lot of fun! I know the last trip was! Unfortunately, I won't be making it as I'm now an Arizonian of the Phoenix variety! And while I realize it's a short trip, it's still 4 hrs nonetheless.

Ah Kevin, I was wondering if you guys ended up moving or not. No worries, and I'll take you off the SoCal list for now I guess. Hopefully we'll bump into you at some future occasion.

Note that the call time has been changed to the morning to take advantage of lower temperatures and less traffic.

I took a job at Luke AFB as a QA (Quality Assurance) Electronics/Communications for the Barry M. Goldwater Range; 2 mil+ square miles of airspace/ground for DOD entertainment...I mean, training. :grin:

I'm much happier here, and we so much more enjoy AZ over CA. :laugh:
