Mullholland PCH run Official Date - 8/05/2006
I decided to the do the run on August 5, 2006. I choose Saturday because I thought Tolaiz's argument about needing to recover the next day was valid. Also because on the first run we lost half the crew at 5:00pm.

We start at Bob's Big Boy
Bob's Big Boy
W 4211 Riverside Dr, Burbank, Ca

Here is General idea of the Route.

We leave Bob's Big Boy at 12:30 -1:00 get there by 11:00 if you want eat there before we leave.
Take Barham Bvld > Cuhanga to Mullholland.
Take Muholland as far as it goes, then to Ventura.
We then take Ventura to Topanga and pick up Mullholland again.
We follow Mullholland to Los Virgenes taking Malibu Canyon to PCH (This will avoid most of the traffic on PCH.)
We then Take PCH into Oxnard.

I still need to find some places for us to eat for dinner and a possible mid-afternoon snack.

Here is map of the route.


The section of Mullholland I am adding at the beginning has really beautiful scenery. Also Malibu Canyon is breathtaking (I understand the mountains were used as the backdrop for the MASH TV show.)

The only thing I see changing at this point is possibly the starting point if the number of particpants get pretty high.

Can I be a Sky stalker?

I'm waiting in limbo land unsure of when I'm going to be able to get a Sky since the list seems soooooo long to me right now. :willy: I'm handling my addiction by downloading tons of photos and videos of the car to tide me over and avoid the shakes. (Lots of reading of this newsgroup helps too!)

Since there is no way I'll have a sky baby by then, can I come to Bob's Big Boy and just drool over your cars. No worries, I will stand back. My drool will land on the ground. Not on your beautiful shiny new Skys.

Of course you should come. You'll have your Sky soon enough.
These events are just as much about people as they are about cars.

Bob's Big Boy

I went to Bob's Big boy tonight to snap some pictures (check the link below). It appears they are very familar with car gatherings :D

I was hoping to make arrangements to get spots reserved, but if they do not do it for this regular Friday meet, I doubt that they will do it for us. But it is a really cool place to meet.

If no other clubs are meeting there when we do it looks like there will be plenty of room.

Where the heck is everyone? Robo, how come you're not going? Is anyone opening up passenger seats to people "in waiting"? To set us apart from the last ride, we need a yellow, white, green and black one.... Any of them coming along? Is there anything we, on the forum, can do to LURE more people into going on the ride? Just curious... I can't wait!

August 5 run is still on. I will be PM'ing those that have indicated there interest to go. As far as I know there about 7 Skys, 2 or 3 Sols and ION going to be there.

I sent an E-Mail to Gravana Tuning inviting them to come.

The first leg of Mullholland is pretty straight forward (hard to get lost on). There are a lot places (Scenic Overlooks) to stop and enjoy the Scenery, most will only take a couple of cars and some are not Sky friendly at all.

I was thinking that once on mullholland those that want enjoy the twisties could flow ahead and those that want to take in the Scenery would do so.

Right before Mullholland turns into the Topanga State Park there is a church with a pretty big parking lot. As long as they are not having a wedding that day we could regroup there.

For lunch, SOS over on the Solstice Forum suggested Neptune's Net on PCH. I have only checked it out on the Web. They have burgers and such and it appears like a lot of bikers stop there. Might be a fun place to show off the Kappas! I figure we will get there by 4:00pm.

Still trying to fill out the rest of the details.
