Double parking for sure, but there's no stopping or parking on the single track road up to the top!

Hopefully no one else will be up there, the earlier we leave the better for the top!

Last time I was up on Mt. Hamilton, I do remember that single lane road to the parking lot. And a number of us Porsches did have difficulty parking on a busy day.
Too bad the parking isn't like Mt. Diablo at the top! I am sure all of us will come up with a plan, once we see the turn out in the morning at 8 am.

Just an update ... a few people have asked about going some where after the run to grab a bite ... There are a few places close to the end of the run that would be great picnic spots ... so the thought is just maybe bring a bag lunch or we can swing thru somewhere in San Jose when we cross Alum Rock and Mckee ....

Up for discussion if there is more input ???

Steve

Looks to be a big turn out ...

Steve, as we talked about yesterday, I think the picnic at the end of the run is a great idea. Bring what you have and just chill with friends old and new on a picnic bench or set up your table on your rear tray, that's what they're for, right!

Maybe someone can really show us the technique for a 911 deck lid BBQ. Did you see if the sunol park is open on the first?

None of you guys knows me, but I'm so jealous of all of you. Especially now that I see the route. About a year ago I was out west and nearly bought a house ON the route! (near E) Money and family issues prevented the move. this is killing me! That looks like the drive of a lifetime.

After a few ideas i think we are settles on finishing the run at Sunol Park ...
After speaking with them they assured that there is plenty of parking and picnic areas for us and great landscape and photo spots ... we will try to get the Green barn as our picnic spot ... I would recommend bringing a bag lunch or there are a few spots to drop thru on McKee and also some within driving distance of the end point.

There is a 5 dollar entry to the park but the money goes directly to the EB Parks Dept and as I said the photo op's will be plentiful and there are restroom facilities there ...

So lets start the year right ... good people ... great cars ... and a get-together after ... most of these type runs people never have the time to talk .. show up .. drive .. and go ..

See ya there .... Steve

I checked out the website earlier today and it looks like a great place to end, we might have to check with the observatory to see if they are open too, if only to use their restroom!

On the first they are open at 10 am ... I think those are the same hours they had during the summer last time we went ... the guy I talked to said they are there earlier than that and the building should be accessible about 8am .. they expect a quiet day on the first .. he was surprised that we would be out and about ...

Please count my wife (Kathy), kids, and I in for New Years. 2 X 914's.

I actually went for a fuel burn today and ended up at the top of Mt Hamiliton.

Michael, you must have had some fantastic views from up there on such a clear day.

Just a reminder to everyone coming, that we'll be ending at the Sunol Regional Park for a get together, come picnic, come story swap and general relaxing time with friends old and new in a beautiful location.

Pack a lunch, maybe a thermos! We should have the area pretty much to ourselves by the sound of it. There is a $5 day fee for the park per vehicle.

Looking forward to seeing everyone again
