Here are caravan directions for the 3 clubs:


BAPOC Meeting Point:

Starbucks in Milpitas between 8:30 am - 9:00 am DON'T BE LATE PLEASE - caravan will leave at 9:00 promptly.

Directions and a Map to Starbucks can be found through Yahoo Maps at:
http://maps.yahoo.com/py/maps.py?&addr=127+Ranch+Dr&csz=Milpitas

Email Sean at [email protected] if you need more info on how to get there, but the directions are very easy. I don't think there will be a North Bay meeting point because of the time constraints. Just go to the Starbucks :)




SacProbes Meeting Point:

We'll meet at our regular UNOCAL 76 gas station off Watt Avenue and Fair Oaks Blvd between 6:15 and 6:30 am - waah, waah, stop crying and be there :) - I'll call those of you who are local and wake you up if need be...hehehe. Let me know if any Sacramento peeps need help getting to the 76 gas station. [email protected]




SCPOC Driving Directions:

From Hwy. 1 South
From the South, you have two choices:
1. Look for the Monterey Bay Aquarium sign and exit Hwy. 1 at Munras Ave. Follow the brown directional signs to Cannery Row parking and the aquarium. Follow the brown directional signs to Cannery Row parking and the aquarium.
2. Exit Hwy 1 at Hwy 68 West/Pacific Grove. Continue 4 miles to David Ave, then turn right and follow David Ave to the end. You'll see the aquarium and signs for parking on Cannery Row.





Ok, let me recap....I've got the agenda, URL to the attractions, cost, directions, time schedule....I think that's about it :)

post here if you need anything else answered.

good job dan! :thumbup: too bad this is only going to be a one-day event!

the flip side of this is that stacey and i may wind up spending the night in nocal anyway, since she hasn't been to the city and i'd like to take her to the wharf before we have to come back home!

So what's the plan for SCPOC? I've been looking into motel rooms (yeah, short notice, I know) & had no luck. Is anyone camping, or is is going to be a drive up & back in one day marathon?

guys,

jorge was planning on driving up with me, and i plan on leaving friday night, unless we all decide to take off early saturday morning, which might be the best option.

if the meeting time is going to be 11am, then we could leave here by 6:00am and make it there in time.

what do you guys think? we should have talked about this at the mod day!

5hrs here to Monterey? I dunno; I've been able to consistently make it in about 6hrs (last time was a 1am start to Laguna Seca& I hit the will-call for tickets at a little after 7am). Of course, I usually hold it to 75-80 mph the whole way--easier on the wallet & police record that way ;)

I was thinking along the lines of 4:30-5 to hit the road.

Right now it looks like Sharon & I are splitting the driving in my car & doing the marathon.
