***Lake County VW Campout and Cruise***
Meet up with those wanting to camp out the night before at either the Glenhaven Beach Resort or 1 can 'rado's families summer property (this is pending the ok from 1 can rado and his family). Jon and I will be arriving around 4 pm.
I will be bringing hotdogs and hamburgers. If someone or a group of people would be willing to bring soda/beer please let me know.
Leave the campsite at 11am.
Head east towards the 20/53 junction.
Meet up with everyone that didn't camp or meet at the campground somewhere around the 20/53 junction. Will look into a good location soon. We will wait 15-20 minutes for those running late so plan on leaving there at about 11:30.
Head out 53 towards Middletown taking some occasional back roads so we arnt on 53 the entire time.
Show up at the Calpine Visitor's Center at around 12:30.
I will call Monday and find out more info on the campground and Visitor Center.
Jon and I be heading back to the campground no later then 4:30pm.
My gf mentioned going to the visitors center for an hour or so and then a relatively close area to cook food and have the actual g2g.
I will find out if there is a check out time for the campground but Jon and I will be leaving around 11am.
The drive from the campground to the Calpine Visitor Center is 30 minutes according to google maps without back roads. So I will be planning on taking some occasional back roads once we are on 53 to make the drive between 45 minutes to an hour.
Meeting Locations (pm me if you want me to post a meeting spot for you.)
If you want to cruise with us from eureka or meet somewhere along the way please pm me. We will be leaving Eureka around 11am.
If ur camping with us Friday and are coming from 101 we can meet on 20 right after you get off 101 and leaving there around 2pm.
If ur camping with us Friday and coming from I5 meet at the campground at 4pm.
For those that don't want to camp and are coming from I5 we could meet somewhere around where 20 and 53 meet (possibly Masonic Lodge parking lot if they will allow us to) and continue on towards Middletown.
For those that don't want to camp and are coming from 101 we could meet at the camping spot or at the I5 spot.
My friend caddyjumper93 will be bringing up the rear. If we loose anyone please get him on the radio and he will let you catch up and guide you back to the group. Also please notify me as quick as possible of any accident or breakdown as I will be bring some tools and any replacement parts/fluids I can find. I won't guarantee I will have what you need so please be prepared if you can. If I don't have my golf fixed by then or I do decide to bring my caddy i will hopefully have my car dolly finished by the time this comes just incase.
Both Jon (caddyjumper93) and myself will be on channel 7.1 on handheld radios and channel 7 on CB.
If you have a handheld radio please bring it along with any extras for those that don't have them.
This is all tentative for now. As we get closer things will become more concrete. I will be doing calling and messaging in the next few weeks to get things setup and ready.
And here is a map of my planned route. My gps says 1 hour 25 minutes without stops. Also my appologies for the size. its the best i could get and still look decent. if someone has street atlas from delorme i can send you the map file.
With that keep a look here for future updates.
If anyone has anything they would like me to add or edit to this post please feel free to pm me.
