Convertible Meet & Drive: Mt Wilson, Sunday, Sept 22

Sept 22 is coming up! It's not too late to sign up!

Calling all BMW Convertibles! It's been a while since we've had a VERT meet/drive to Mt Wilson. Meet at Starbucks on Foothill and Gould in LaCanada/Flintridge, CA. at 9am, drive up Angeles Crest Hwy and stop for photo op. This will be a leisurely drive and not a speed drive. I checked out the route last week and there are too many patrols with laser guns at several turnouts! We will stop for a photo op on Angeles Crest Hwy at one of the major turnouts, then we will stop at the mouth of the Mt Wilson Road (for an outhouse break) before driving up to Mt Wilson with enough time between each car so you can enjoy the hairpin road and drive as slowly or quickly as you'd like and avoid rocks flying back at you! For those of you who have never been on this road, it's a great road to experience your car's and your own turning prowess! (Just don't drive irresponsibly!) We will have to pay for parking once at Mt Wilson. There is also a café, Cosmic Café, where you can purchase food and drink. The drive is great, the views are great, and we should finish up between noon and 1pm so you still have the rest of the weekend to enjoy. Feel free to invite other bimmer verts! I'll start the rsvp list:


1. BoBoB (Blackonblackonblack) E93
2. Don & Darcy E89 Z4
3. tmdals0213 E93
4. Bleen E93 M3

I went on a dry run this morning around the same time we'll be driving next week. It couldn't have been more perfect! I didn't know that they just re-surfaced Angeles Crest Hwy and have now paved ALL the turnouts! We can take our photos without driving on a dusty turnout. I also informed the manager at Cosmic Café that there will be approx. 20+ of us coming up so she can stock up. The food is okay, cold or hot sandwiches, hot dogs, etc. Required parking is $5 which you can also purchase at Cosmic Café or at the Visitor's Center at the stop before driving up to Mt Wilson. All proceeds from the Café go to sustaining the Mt Wilson Observatory, a worthy cause. Let's support them! Weather was perfect...hopefully it will be about the same next week. I'll try to post a map of where to park when you arrive to the meeting place at Gould Ave and Foothill Blvd., as well as post the route. Can't wait! 7 more days! Thanks for those of you who've already signed up...and still waiting for you other verts lurking out there!
