    I can vouch for LT's salad, it was delicious. Tried it at the fun run 2 or 3 years ago.

    OK, we're down to the wire. Tomorrow's the big day. First organized drive of the season. (It's California, why do we wait until May for the 1st drive? Why not New Year's Day when the weather is cool and the roads are empty?)

    Remember to meet up at Starbucks (Auburn) already fueled. There's a gas station just down the street.

    We pull out at 9:00 on the dot. So get there early and get your coffee/pastry before hand.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Foothills Fun Run FAQ

    1. Can I bring an Opel. It's an old one; from the early '70s?
    Sure. Why not?

    2. Can I bring a spouse?
    Again, sure. Why not? Is she yours?

    3. I like Opels.
    Well, that's not really in the form of a question, but most of us on this forum like Opels too.

    4. Will West Coast make fun of me if I wear my shirt inside out and backwards again?
    Oh hell yes! Especially if you also wear your slippers.

    5. What if I fail to follow the group again and end up in the snow?
    There's no snow this year, buddy. Throw a 2nd seat in the TinyVette and bring a navigator. Perhaps a cell phone.

    6. Will there be food?
    Yes.

    7. Can I bring my cat?
    No.

    8. Dog?
    No.

    9. Shall I bring a Caprese Salad?
    What, exactly, kind of car do you drive? 'Cause this isn't a garden tour, and there'll be no wine tasting / food pairing thingie goin' on here. You're thinking of the PT Cruiser group.

    I hope the Spätzle didn't pick up the taste of motor oil and antifreeze. I should have first cooked and then checked all the fluid levels on the GT

    Hope you guys have a great time. Pouring rain down here, and the princess never sees rain. Not going to be making this run, hopefully one in the future.

    That's Opel Gravy for us hard-core dyed-in-the-wool Opel owners.

    Two seats in the Tinyvette => two people lost, and getting lost => strategic delay has us arriving just as the food has been cooked and is being served.

    I printed 8 sets of maps/directions. We will be using route #4 through Copperopolis.
    Potatoes cooking for potato salad, bread dough in the machine. Camera batteries charged, car is ready. Car is fueled but will top up in Auburn. Weather looks good. All set here. Ready for fun.

    Twas a fantastic day. Great weather, the cars all ran good, grill master Gil did an excellent job again. The only negative was that on every twisty road/hill climb, we got stuck behind a slow mover. As seen from the photos, we had 4 red GTs, Al's gray one and TinyVette. Niel and Alex tagged along in a street car. The southern end of the route was different as we detoured around a special event in Sonora. Thus we had new terrain to see and hills to climb. We do miss Roy and his golden 1.1.

    Glad you guys had a great time. We had a large Kappa gathering down here. About a 450 mile trip for those that did the whole thing. Rain stopped about 10am so took off to catch them at Palomar Mountain. 25 Kappas overall I guess. Went from Bombay Beach to Dana Point, Chase the Sun Run, it was called. Saw the sun twice. You guys had far better weather.

    I am going to get to one of these events. The cars looked great, and as in our run the red ones out numbered every thing. Mine was the only yellow one there.

    More pictures please!

    This I will say when you are out in the lead and watching the mirror to see if everyone made a turn, the yellow trail car is easy to spot. Naturally that is Mike and the TinyVette which we have learned to keep a special you on. TinyVette likes to wonder off into snow drifts.

    I've tried getting in touch with Kiltcop (Chris) to see if I could get more of the story of the early days of this event, for the Blitz, of course, but so far no luck/no reply.

    I'll give you a call tommorow Mike.
    Arguing online is the same as racing in the Special Olympics;
    no matter who wins, you're both still retarded.
