2nd Annual Chase the Sun Run - April 30, 2016

Okay folks, it's getting to be that time of year again. The date is set:

Saturday, April 30, 2016. This is the weekend BEFORE Mother's Day.

Last year was the inaugural event and this year we're looking to make it even better. If you missed last year's event, here is the thread:

https://www.skyroadster.com/forums/f3...-2015-a-59873/

It was a great time had by all and we managed to hit all our waypoints right on time. We wound up having a little bit of everything...a little fog, a little snow plenty of sun, great roads, and great people!

This year we're changing the route some but I do not have details yet. Expect to see route information late January. (I need to scout, plan, scout, drive, eat, etc to test things out.)

The overall idea, however, will be the same, breakfast in the desert, lunch in the mountains, and dinner by the sea. If you can't make the whole run, we'll be setting up meet up points along the route for you to join the group.

That would be an amazing run. No desert, mountains or sea anywhere near here.

Yea, I've been slacking.

Going to be doing some recon and web site work this weekend. Big fun. LOL

Last year SaturnSkyRedline2015, we had snow in the mountains! LOL So you went from this nice, sunny, warm desert, up into the cold, cloudy mountains with some snow on the ground, to a bright sunshine filled beach. LOL It was like every weather condition and temperature range you'd expect over an entire year in So Cal in one day. You may need to come down and join us! LOL

Robo, thanks for the offer, it's a long drive from Ontario down to CA, but I'm sure it would be epic. Hope you post up a ton of pics after your run. Would love to see them.

And a few more...























More pictures here: Index of /Sky/CtSR2015/2015pics

And on Facebook.

This year may be a bit smaller since I haven't been able to promote it like I did last year. The route, times and stops will be the same other than a change to the meet up/fuel up spot in Fallbrook.

Keep in mind, for those that are not aware, this is all in ONE day. You can see from the pictures above how diverse the terrain and weather were.

This run was to prove that there are few places in the world like So Cal. You can have breakfast in the desert, lunch in the mountains, and dinner by the sea...and we did...and if you missed it last year, be sure to come on out this year!

Has the midway point been set yet Robo? I am not sure how I plan on doing this, but want to bring the Mallett car for the San Diego club members to see it. It will be its first run(lol) trailered that is. Would like to do the first half of the run, then pick up the motorhome and trailer and head home from there. Not going to Dana Point.

Not yet but hope to get that set in stone by this weekend. Website is also updated with newer information and I hope to have 99% of that updated today with only the mid way meeting point left to be determined and any necessary tweaks to the timeline because of that change.

Wind Restrictor, we'd love to have you out! It is a great drive!

SaturnSkyRedline2015, you too. I can't promise snow on the ground in the mountains (that was really a nice surprise and really was cool) but the views are even more impressive in person. The roads are a blast too!

Still extremely jealous. Too bad the Jacksonville Roadsters are so far south of me. I think they are the only active Kappa club on the East Coast, to be honest. le sigh.
