skersfan You can cross me off that list for sure. Never doing it again. Way too dangerous for other people on the road. Too old for that stuff, and have been a cyclist for too long to see anything about it I liked.

Your not going to get many from San Diego people to LA is my guess, we have enough problems getting them up here for our run.

I think we are going Sunday, driving the Blue car. But I am guessing by the time it is done it will be over 400 miles and close to the 500 mark for us. We are not staying for the dinner under any circumstance, will be headed home by 3pm at the latest.

It will be a very long day, as you have to drive back on Sunday evening around 6pm if you eat with the group.
I may pass on this but if ever the SD people go to LA or somewhat near LA lol im down to see you guys ! but id prefer to go to Robos place first get my car checked and learn some stuff before I go for a long haul to sd

Robotech I keep batting around the idea of going but I don't think Jamie's back would be up for that kind of trip and with me being gone all last weekend with autocross and stuff and then the build in two weeks I think I'm going to spend a bit of time with her. ThreeFiddy coming down from Torrance would be a hell of a day for him.

Funny story.... I had a Jeep Cherokee for a long time. Towards the end, I discovered that the drainage for the condensation from the A/C had become clogged. I discovered this when I went around a corner and a GALLON of COLD FREEEEZING WATER was dumped on my feet all at once. That may have been the closest I have ever come to having an accident that I caused.
can that happen on a sky? I'm in socal so no freezing water !

However, when you come out on the 7th I can take a quick look at it. Usually pretty easy to tell.
what I did last night I ended up putting a huge paper under the where engine was there were spots this morning and I didn't smelled anything sweet tho there were spots but I think its water . HOPEFULLY
