2013 Spring Scenic Drive

Postby metrognome » Wed Feb 13, 2013 9:37 am

Who's up for a spring scenic drive? Anyone? These have proven to be lots of fun but also poorly attended in the past. Last year NO ONE showed up. Let us know what it would take to get you to participate.

Between traveling, dirtbike races, and concerts (and PDX) weekends are usually quite full. Id have more a change to make it during the week this time of year but doubt that works well for others.

Works perfectly for ME!

But you're right, probably not for MOST.

Not yet. Too bad, since spring has been very good to us weather wise. It was 56 at my house this morning.

Who wants to to a Memorial Day drive? Anyone?????????

Ok, that's two of us. Glenn, if you're in, that's more than we had for the last drive.

Anyone else?

Count me at 98%

I work overnight Sunday night to Monday morning, but do NOT work Monday night. So I can stay awake without the need to get a good day's sleep before work!

I got some interest from a couple people on Facebook too. Anyone want to suggest a schedule and a route that's somewhat central to most club members?

Well, I should have kept my mouth shut.

I'm now working Monday (Memorial Day night), too. That will be the 5th of 5 nights in a row.

I am now 0% for a Memorial Day Scenic Drive. :(

That's a huge bummer, but we can do it without you, I guess. Won't be the same though, since you're always in charge of these things.

I'm going to move that we do the spring drive on another weekend since we're running out of time and I haven't gotten any suggestions for scenic routes that are not in Jax. I'd like to consult with Glenn on route ideas since he's kind of the expert on that kind of thing. I hope we can do it in a week or two.

I was looking into a trip to Mt. Dora, but never decided on a food venue (VERY important :P ) or a starting point that was "reasonable" for everyone interested.

It's a cool little town, though.

I say we start at your house or somewhere nearby. No starting place is going to be convenient for everyone. People from Jax/St. Aug could also meet up and drive down to the main starting place together.

Check this route through Ocala National Forest.

I have driven a route close to that. I have taken US1 South down the St. Johns River and crossing over at Ocala State forest. It is very nice and a great idea! Yum, Food!!!! Let's get on the food part.
