What a perfect day and a great turnout to start 2012 here in the North Bay!

We had 45 cars, representing most of the Porsche lineup, and our scenic drive took us over dry roads, with temps in the low-60's and perfect blue skies.

Unfortunately, I wasn't able to finish the drive and have lunch with everyone else at the Union Hotel in Occidental because my wife was feeling very sick...so we turned around at Tomales and headed back home.

I am posting a few pics from the first part of the drive, and I will try to post more once others share their pics from today.

Happy New Year, Pelicans, Porsche friends, and everyone else!

Chris

So I know this is the 911 section, but how nice to see a proper 928 GTS out for the run.

Shoot, we should get all four together! We'll have to wait until my '87 returns for the shop. The small problem of not passing smog test turned into a top-end rebuild

Anna and I had a blast Chris, thanks so much for putting the drive on!

We did approximately 350 Miles total from Santa Cruz and back--top down 90% of the time with sunburns to prove it

What a great turnout, fantastic group of people and more--it just doesn't get any better.

Certainly the proper way to start a new year!

I'm so glad you guys were able to make it up for the drive. Just bummed that we didn't get to hang out more.

Perfect way to start 2012 indeed!

Nice roads, can vouch for that. I know this roads pretty well all the way to Occidental..I've done this on a bike ride from Crissy Fields and back..
Maybe I'll show up, weather permitting. I remember one particular hill, "Marshall Wall".. Climb that on a bike with a gearing of 42/21..

A Novato run on for 1/1/2013? I posted on the Livermore 2013 run thread - I'm in San Diego, but plan on visiting friends in Montclair next week and would love to join a NYD run up here, at present looks like Livermore is it? Sadly appears to be no San Diego Palomar NYD blast for 2013 othrwise I might have lingered down here, but the weather looks to be perfect up your way on the Day
Cheers
Barry
