Thread: HB Cruise-in activities thread. Roll Call!

    HB Cruise-in activities thread. Roll Call!

    Redid this thread so we could start over.

    Friday: As always Mr Hodgkins will be having his awesome BBQ. And, in the past there's been a cruise to the BBQ. THIS YEAR, I'm working on a tour of Hilborn as a cruise destination during the cruise. I will be picking up the group at Dave's house at 3pm Sharp! The hilborn tour starts at 4pm. Tour will be about an hour and we'll head back to Daves at 5pm. It's in Aliso, only 10 miles or so from Dave's house and splits a nice loop in half that involves the coast, some parkways and a little Canyon. Just a quick tour, nothing major, then off to Dave's. Roll Call!!!

    Saturday: The rules have changed this year. The City of HB wants all cars in the show by 9am so staging will start earlier. around 7-7:30 Therefore the cars and coffee thing is off.

    Sunday This is still up for discussion for a longer cruise. Maybe Hells Kitchen again? That was fun. Thoughts? Won't be able to organize any track duties at this short notice.

    Last, but not least, the shirt. Sorry but there will be no shirt for the show. Factory Five brings their own shirts to the show and depends on that revenue to help pay for the event. I totally forgot that. I'll do the shirt sometime after the show so as not to compete with them.

    Already RSVP'd to Dave's thread but I'm in for the Hell's Kitchen run if everyone want to go again . . . It was a blast being able to sit down and swap stories with fellow F5 owners.

    See ya at HB . . .

    Here's the route on the way down. With Friday traffic we'll work on taking the shortest route.



    As for the way back, well...weather permitting this should give us a nice cruise back down the coast against traffic and we'll also stop off at Top of the World if we have time.

    I missed last year but just got registered for this one. Looking forward to meeting some old (and new) friends.

    I plan on driving down Friday from Morro Bay if anyone wants to join in.

    Regards, Rick.

    Haha. Yes indeed. So how many are doing the cruise from Dave's out to Hilborn?

    Just throwing it out there. Last year we put a last minute breakfast and cruise together for Sunday (the day following Huntington). We met up at Maniac Mike's in Upland and then cruised up through Glendora Mtn. Rd. and then onto and down through Azusa Canyon. We could do the same run this year or if the group wanted to meet up later in the morning we could cruise up to Big Bear for lunch. If there is enough interest, I can post the plan on the main page of the forum so any "out of towner's" would see it. Let me know.
