I have my official invite now.
You'll find the last TCL GTG on 9/25/2010 here:
Here's the truck tackling the snake. I was a few minutes behind the rest of TCL because I got stuck in the middle of all the MGs who decided to group up before climbing the hill so that their photos would all be in succession.

It's probably a bit of a late notice but I'm down to cruise in my GTI; don't wanna hold people up with the Spider.
Anyone else seriously considering it?
I think it's just the whole zoo-like atmosphere that makes me LOL a little. It reminds me how people here go nuts over driving 20mph behind a minivan while dodging mountain bikes on highway 9.
Not that both aren't amazing roads, but the spectacle surrounding them is a bit much and kind of takes away a lot of what I enjoy about twisties - solitude, fluidity, peace, etc. But I guess every region needs it's tourist road.
I was leaving Los Alto's Rod and Gun awhile ago with g/f, and I was driving down Page Mill as we wanted to stop by Stanford and get some Ikes Place sandwiches. I commented on how pretty the view is, and how I never get to see it. She asked me if I drove the road often, and my comment was yes, but in the middle of the night, at three times this speed.

I won't quote the pics but Peloton, thank you for the reminder of Decker. I loved driving that road, especially after a stressful day at work. I worked right near Westlake Blvd and lived in Camarillo so I could take Decker to PCH and then PCH up to Lewis Rd. Ahhh memories!
For some, it's neat to have the moment captured I guess. You see others that go every weekend to see and be seen. Might be fun to kick back and watch the show once in a while.
I had forgot all about it during the gtg and it wasn't till I saw the sign posted "cameraman in apex" that I realized it. It's the only time I've ever been photographed there, as I do most of my driving at night or during the week when I'm hoping for less traffic. (I like doing midnight runs - canyons are best in the Miata- and can get pretty far from home without realizing it.)
Ooh Vintage snake- awesome! There another thread lurking around here/archives? Of that Porsche 911 RSR? That has a video with some vintage footage as well.
