Spring 2013 SoCal Avocado Drive 3/23

Hey all,
It's been a long time since the Southern California SLKs had their own event and even longer since we've had a drive. As usual, the pace will be brisk, but well within limits. The goal is to stay on the road, unlike what happened here: http://forums.corvetteforum.com/sout...-a-mishap.html.

The drive is the Avacado (Fallbrook/Temecula) run. It's close to OC/SD and a lot of fun. Starting point is 32080 Clinton Keith Road, Wildomar, CA 92595 at 9:00, we leave at 9:30 am. Date is March 23, which is the weekend before Easter. The date may also change if the weather interferes with our plans.

Lunch spot is Havana Kitchen in Old Town Temecula:

There is a nice, large parking structure nearby with plenty of room for all the cars. Food looks tasty.

Intermediate meeting points will be set up when we get a better consensus of who is coming out. Please copy/add yourself to the signup list if you are interested.

I'm in for now unless mate vetoes. I've mellowed on my driving habits of late (must be the aging process )

Lots of tentatives . Looks like the temperature will come down into the high-60s instead of the current mid-80s, but no rain in the forecast so far.

OK, it looks like we got 5 people so far from the San Diego area, two of which I believe would be coming from the 78 to join the 15 in Escondido.

I propose an intermediate (and optional of course) meet-up spot at North County Fair Mall in Escondido (CLICKY!) so we can head up to Temecula as a group. Yes, for the people coming from 78, it's 7 minutes of driving in the wrong direction to get to that mall. Deal with it!

For those who want to, let's plan to meet at the mall by 8:00, so we can leave at 8:15 and make it to the Wildomar Starbucks by 9:00.

I've attached a map of the meet-up spot, also pointing out two conveniently located gas stations (a Shell and a Chevron). Please gas up on the way in before you pull into the mall, because it will be very INconvenient to have to make the U-turns necessary to hit these things on the way out .
