    I am thinking about doing another Mt. Baldy Run (the last one was FUN!).

    SUNDAY, OCTOBER 17TH! AT 11AM?

    Last time, it was an exciting cruise up Mt. Baldy's twisting banked roads and reach heights of well over 3,000 feet. This was definitely not a road to test the speed skills, as one mistake could get you in trouble real fast. We kept the speeds reasonable to enjoy the fantastic scenery. Besides, going up this road isn't about speed, it's about the pure excitement of the tight left and right turns, and sometimes even surprising sharp 180-degree turns. We took the infamous Glendora Ridge Road, a 20-mile stretch of mountain road that require skills and focus from the drivers.

    Gotta finish with the DMV hassles and gotta get a OEM spec fuel pump. When that happens, I'm game!

    Cool! So far I have a couple of 360s coming, and a Porsche Turbo. It should be fun drive, and I am thinking about taking the Azusa Caynon Road (about 30 minutes longer than the Glendora Caynon Rd., that we took during the Mt. Baldy Run #1).

    Look forward to seeing you!

    Here's the map. We are taking the Azusa Canyon, instead of the Glendora Cyn. (the longer but more fun drive).

    yea, there are lots of other roads. Just pick one that is less crowded (palomar, Ortega). Maybe some of the adjacent roads of santiago? (Modejska or silverado)

    Ortega not crowded!? Have you ever driven down this road?

    I'd be up for a Palomar Run. Went with a group of guys last month and spend over half the day carving up the roads around and up Palomar Mnt (and there was little to no traffic at all).

    Right on!!! Seeing as how I also have a M3 and I'm from San Diego (La Jolla) I'm liking this idea a lot (maybe us M3 boys/gals should do an M3 run of our own?)!

    Went on palomar today, among other roads, chp was hangin out at the rest spot about half way up the front side. Luckily a guy in an older civic with rims was pulled over to the side of the first rest stop and waved to me the sign to slow down, and i did and there was good old chp, i took it easy the rest of the day on the mountain. I want to find some good Canyon roads, some of the roads up to Julian were nice, 80-90mph 3rd gear bends, I like cayons better hehe at lower altitude, the roads are kind of level with no real radical slopes like going up or down a mountain, feels more like a real race course, hehe, if you know of any roads we can do a "spirited drive" within speed limits let me know ;)

    Sportscar14a / Sting,

    Have you guys been to CC on the weekends to meet up with any of the F-car guys? I've been wanting to go, but have had to work some wknds, so it hasnt worked out. Looks like there's a lot of interest in this upcoming wknd (16OCT), and I know it'd be early (7AM), but i wouldnt mind getting up early, meeting and then driving up if you guys were game.

    I dont mind waking up early, If you want to meet up some time this week and get some coffee or something we can meet eachother and talk about what time to meet up sat. morning, we would probably have to leave about 5:30am or so. Just let me know what day you both are availible and we can meet up that evening for some coffee or something and talk about this weekend!

    I might be able to go to CC; have to see what is going on later in the week before I can clearly state that I can go.

    I would like to go with a drive with other M owners (these Ferraris' are just too fast!) up/down/around Palomar. Both you guys send me an email so we stop thread-jacking here. Cool?
