April 10, 2010 Mulholland Snake and Tuna Serpent Meet & Drive
It was great to meet y'all today. Weather was cloudy and cool, ideal for top down drive. The sun came up after lunch in time for another 3 legs of driving with geology hike, hike to Chumash tribe kitchen and hike to check on 12 million year old fossils.
My thanks to SantaMonicaSLK32 (Bill) for being the main pathfinder and guide for the different driving episodes and being our geology and fossil expert, and some Universal Studios narrative on Malibu Canyon. Another thank you to LynxFx (Jason) for being the pathfinder for some parts of the drive. And also appreciate the E-3C capabilities of SweetSLK and LynxFX. Moreover, commendations to V6SLK and Durkatlon for joining us (coming from Lompoc and San Diego).
My apologies to Ruby (SweetSLK's mate) and to Alicia (my mate) for not giving a good indication that the drives involve a fair number of twisties (pretzel-type). Quite sorry for the nausea and in Ruby's case -- some regurgitation of stomach contents.
Overall a pleasant and great day to meet people, and enjoy each other for great conversation about SLK's and other topics, and testing the driving capabilities of the SLK.
