Nor-Cal Night Drives

16821 Views 4 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  scion2008
I dont know how well this will work for anyone, but here is an attempt to funnel some driving energy into something more fun than cruising sunrise blvd with the honda crowd.

(this thread is for nor-cal scion owners. doesnt mean you cant drive from montana to meet up with us, but please create your own thread in your own region for your own meets.)

how it works:

1. anyone can post a night drive.

2. anyone can go on the drives posted.

3. when possible, define night as post-9pm, so we can be more sure that the roads we travel are as close to unoccupied as possible.

4. post meet time, date and location clearly.

5. if you post a drive, show up to it. on time. dont be "that guy".

6. post your drive far enough in advance to give people time to see the thread so they can attend. otherwise, what's the point?

this will work best if those who post drives are posting because they are going, and want company. not to see if anyone is interested in that road. that will help cut down on the clutter in this thread.
regardless of where you live, post a road. some of us are actual drivers, and have no problem meeting you for a spirited drive.

In an effort to keep this thread on topic, iGod and i decided to clean things up a bit. This topic will be cropped down to the current drive and comments, until a new drive gets posted. At which time it will be cropped again.

Well sh!t man, I think we oughts get something going in March. Weather gets nicer, nights stay warmer, tires stay heated and sticky, less chance of run-off at higher elevations.
