Sacramento Valley SLK Enthusiasts July 29th, 2017 road trip: West Sac. - Real McCoy Ferry - Rio Vista - Lodi

Sacramento Valley SLK Enthusiasts July 29th, 2017 road trip: West Sac. – Real McCoy Ferry - Rio Vista - Lodi.

We have reservations for 16 people so if you are going please respond quickly to reserve a spot for you.

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

MEET: We will meet at 9:45am at the Nugget Market at 2000 Towne Center Plaza, West Sacramento., CA.

DRIVE: Leave at 10:30am heading down Jefferson Blvd to Hwy. 84 to the Real McCoy II Ferry.

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 8 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 may put our tops up and hit Hwy 12 and head East to Lodi. This area is known for winds and large trucks, speed limit is 55. We may get interlopers here can’t avoid that but once we turn left on DeVries road we can regroup.
