So its that time again to shine up your rides or finish up those projects and get them out for this year's Crosshaul Cruise! This is the 7th year for this event and hopefully we'll continue the trend of making it a larger turn out year after year! Last year we had over 250 cars on the cruise. As usual we're meeting up at the Volkswagen Credit Center and rolling out from there. I'm changing up the route a little and I will explain that later. Please be courteous to their property and please no burnouts and don't leave garbage behind. This hasn't really been a problem in the past but I feel its necessary to say. VW Credit DOES NOT have public bathrooms, and will not allow people inside to use them. This was feedback I received from years past, so with that being said bring yourself with an empty bladder and your car with a full tank of gas.
So I'm going to try switching things up a little, more driving, less stopping. I'm hoping this makes it more fun to drive. We are going to cruise down 26 as usual, then we're hopping onto Highway 53 to Highway 101, and then up to Seaside. We're going to try it without a midpoint stop unless I see an out cry for there to be one. Highway 53 is a little bumpy at first, but its an incredible road to drive. Please remember that overly aggressive driving and general douchebaggery is frowned upon. Please try to keep yourself and your friends in check and try to not ruin anyone else's good time. Passing someone on the shoulder of the road or blasting someone with gravel doesn't win you any cool guy points.
