Thanks for thinking of me

Azfly; thanks for thinking of me when you saw that old army ch-47 fly overhead. I was in the smaller Boeing Vertol CH-46. USMC combat version.I'll see if I can load a 1970 pic for you. From the ground the 46 and 47 look somewhat alike to the casual observer. Easy difference is the 46 has tricycle gear the beheamoth 47 has 4. Also the 47's used 7.62 M-60's, We used Aircooled 50 cal. Anyway I would hope that whenever anyone sees a whirlybird hacking up the air they would think of all our service people, men and women, young and old and take a brief moment to think of their situation. Yes Paula KFC, after dealing with me tires I needed a little comfort food! Sorry pics would not load to big. And the only thing I would drop on a Rally site would be mass quantities of beer, wine, chicken and meat!! DG

Saturday a big whirly bird, The 4 landing gear you described, flew low, low over our house. You are right...I couldn't help but think of those flying them and their missions past, present and future. Thanks, DG, for your contributions.

Now, may I ask would it be sacreligious to carry beer in a wine glass so I could make use of the wine/glass carry plate from Raley's?

Say, I can't recall if that w-bird flew over after you left or not. Did you have anything to do with that flyover?

Movie night

We're watching a movie one of the nights, right? (I'm too lazy to rifle through posts right now...) I know I offered to bring the screen, but who's bringing the movie and projector?
Finally time to start doing all the last-minute fun stuff.
See you all soon!

I think you're safe Neil. I've always found beer to be a religious experience, in any vessel.

Better Directions??

We are planning on coming up the 5 as far as Visalia area and I googled directions to Cassini from there. The route was 580, toll bridge and the dreaded 12, anybody have a better idea??

It all stinks

Visalia is east of 99! unless you got sumthin goin on there I would stay on 5 to 580 around Tracy, then 680 at Pleasanton up thru concord/ walnut creek get to 37 around vallejo pass the race track to 101 northaround San Rafael, then north to River rd just past Santa Rosa west from there to Cazini. But thats just me.There's no good time to pull thru bay area traffic unless it's dark, then you got that to deal with. I'll be leaving Lodi and travelling the dreaded 12 to Fairfield. So SEE you there. one rally one thread, the directions were off the top of my head! DG

Leslie,

If you can get to the 5-580 junction by say 1pm, then my recommendation would be to stay on 580 the whole way thru Pleasanton and Oakland and across the Richmond/San Rafael bridge to 101. Then it's a straight shot up to the Russian River. Get an early start to get thru the traffic near the Bay just after noon and the going is a lot easier than more circuitous routes.

Another tempting route is 580 to 680 to 780 to 37 to 101, but when we were thru there about 8 months ago, the construction around the bridge at Martinez made for very long, frustrating delays. Perhaps that has changed now. You might want to check with CalTrans on the web for updates.

There is another interesting possibility if you don't mind two-lane highways. That would be staying on 5 until you pick up 12 near Lodi. Then take 12 west across the Delta area to Napa where you hook up with 116 to Petaluma and 101. It may look tempting to take 29 thru Napa Valley but the road at the north end beyond Calistoga isn't for the timid. It's quite doable though if you take your time and enjoy the ride.

In short, there are all sorts of ways around the Bay and what might seem to involve the tedium of bumper-to-bumper driving can be avoided by getting here before the rush hour that starts about 3pm. Then, the shortest routes in terms of distance can also be the quickest and easiest.

Hope you've got a GPS navigation system in your TV.

Bad news for us

I have to be at work on Saturday. I have tried everything to get out of it but no go. So we can't go.

We have a great space with full hook ups in the main area. Anybody want it? Let me know.

I know I warned everyone about using 12 but to me route wise it's the best way around Bay Area traffic if coming from the south. We are north of 12 so we can go east on 50 then 80 to Vallejo. 37 to 101 will be our hard part. We are going to try to hit that part as early in the day as possible.

Hi, call in sick; You know the dreaded "Silver Influenza" is going around now. Not to mention "Aluminitus". Only treatment is to leave town.
