This years Rt 66 will begin in Temecula, CA then move on to Idyllwild, CA for the next 2 days. Our Temecula Motel will be in Old Town Temecula. If your mate, or yourself want to do some shopping at one of the many unique shops, knock down a few Rita's, take in a play or dine in; you'll be within walking distance of the Motel. And there is ample parking for tow rigs. We will relocate to Idyllwild on Friday and depart Sunday.
Fridays drive will include some of the "Dawn Patrols" best roads. The plan is to begin the first leg before breakfast. Most of this run is where the 4 cylinder's dominate. I promise you'll like it. This leg is about an hour long at which point we will stop at Harrah's for breakfast. I'm working on getting us parked in a display area while we eat. More on that later. After breakfast we will continue up the mountain to the Palomar Observatory. Once there we can stretch our legs and take in the Observatory. From there we will head over to Idyllwild. Many of you will remember the quaint village from Rt 66 2015. Depending upon the time of day we may or may not eat there. We'll play that by ear.
After talking to John it was decided that anything in the LA area was a cluster sheeplove.gif waiting to happen. It would be fine for an individual but 30+ 40 yo cars, attempting to stay together, be it in LA traffic or parking just wasn't feasible. I don't even want to think of what would happen if someone stalled or broke down. Rooms will be held for us until Jan 2 and released to the public after that. That being said, here is the new itinerary and the new dates. *NOTE* JAN 2 is the DEADLINE for IDYLLWILD MOTEL RESERVATIONS.
Please find Banquet Restaurant info on page 9 post #161

Maybe. I've already received a question re: my choice of Motels in Ontario. I'll wait for the peanut gallery to check in on this. Maybe I can get someone to scout out a better location if there is one.

I lived and worked right there.. That was always the shady part of 4th st, so that's why I questioned it. South side of the 10 on Archibald should still be a bit on the cheap side and just a tad better hotels. You might still run in to a call girl though... Some of you might not mind that laugh.gif

Make sure your brakes and clutch are up to par. This run is gonna be a lot of stop and go. unsure.gif
Chris914n6
I was going to wait to to see how it pans out but I'm kinda idea.gif about the 10 freeway to the pier on a Sat also. Sunday afternoon was pretty packed on my way back from WCR15. Maybe a loop around Angels Crest instead?
No worries, plenty of time for the locals to chime in.

What weekend is the Pomona swap meet?
914_teener
Hey Kent,

Thanks for doing this.

GMR is closed indefinitely due to the fires, so a Baldy run would be up and back the same road from Upland.

Angels Crest loop is a great drive up the backside and down the front. Plenty of stops and cool places in Pasadena and other cities on the way back...most on R66. There are even a few places on the old R66 with the emblem painted on the old Route 66...Cleghorn Canyon through the pass. It also burned just a little while ago but stopped short of Wrightwood. Fun and scenic drive and the road is open. I can propose alternates if God willing there is snow up high in April that would close the backside route up through Angeles Crest.

I'll PM for alternate Hotels and options if you like.

I agree, 10 fwy to SM pier on any day is going to be a parking lot. You would have to start the run there by 8am to beat weekend traffic if your lucky. AC hwy from Glendale to Wrightwood is awesome but depending on winter weather it's a crap shoot on if it's going to be open due to past storm road repair.

How about a run to the Queen Mary...... Lots of freeway choices and it's only 10 bucks for parking " lots of room " everyone can check out the boat as it's free to board and walk around.

Thanks Rob, Please do PM me. I told John I didn't know that area and it shows. We are not obligated to Motel 6. If you know of a place you would recommend, LMK. You can see how the prices escalate as we depart the Temecula area. Same goes for the drive. I'm up for any improved or necessary changes. Mountain drives will always be subject to weather conditions and we can adjust if required. There are plenty of driving options. We are also in need of suggestions for a spot to hold the Awards Banquet Saturday night. Hopefully it is next to the agreed upon Motel so we can avoid drinking and driving. California is Hell on Drunk Driving and for a good reason. Thx, Kent beerchug.gif

I'm totally up for an early departure; Dawn Patrol style driving.gif . I still get up early to make runs so I can have the roads to myself. So the Dawn Patrol still exists, it's just down to one active member. lol-2.gif The preferred departure time for Rt 66 runs has always been 9:14 but I would strongly suggest that time be changed to 9:14 CST or plan on being in knee deep traffic. I think starting early at the Santa Monica pier (or any alternate Rt 66 place) would be wise if not advisable. From what I know of that area I would think we'd need to be there no later than 6:30. Given the amount of drinking that goes on the nite before that may not work. shades.gif Please PM me with your suggestions. Thx, Kent beerchug.gif

The traffic and signal lights are also really bad in the Ontario and LA area. You should probably make a printable schedule with designated photo and other stops. Because the group will definitely get split up. And as always anywhere in SoCal there will be parking issues. So try to plan for that in advance. I don't know if you can reserve parking areas or not.
phatnine11
Kent,
The Ontario location is about 4 miles from my house, Justin is right about the area. I'll keep an eye out for another location, maybe south of the 10, down Vineyard Ave. Also, the dates 04/6 to the 9th, usually the Festival of Speed is on that weekend (first weekend in April). I'll check to see if anything has been put on the PCA calendar.

Great. Thx for the support folks. Lets get some ideas posted and bounce them off the wall. Maybe we can give Blue6 $100 to watch the cars at night with the promise that he can shoot anyone messing with a teener. happy11.gif He's been retired for awhile now and I'm sure he has an itchy trigger finger. lol-2.gif Cesar, thx for the info on Festival of Speed but it doesn't really matter. As long as I've been here there is always another event happening during one of ours. Some will go and others will attend Rt 66. It might be a blessing in disguise as I suspect a bigger than usual attendance since we will be in SoCal.

Since you will leave at least a week early you should cross the desert anyway.

Thanks so much for putting this together, and most of all thanks for allowing input.
I would be happy to look into Hotels closer to the north side of the LA area. I feel I can get good rates that will kill allot of that freeway time. I will also be happy to work with you on routes to get us around traffic. This is what I do everyday as an estimator I drive allot.
The Peterson is a great museum for visitors with its 90 million Dollar resent renovation, its something to think about doing, two hours is all you need.
Ontario to los Angeles is a bad drive. If you like we can consider closer to Glendale, Pasadena, or the surrounding areas, as long as I you/we get a rate you like for this event. We can do the Pier, The Peterson, Newcombs Ranch a popular Car & biker hot spot on the crest. I am hear if you need assitants..
914_teener
Leamon...

I was thinking the same....maybe Pasadena area with a loop drive to Newcombs....back side R66 back to Pasadena or the other way.

I thought maybe I.d PM Kent with an possible itin after Temecula.
76-914
We're heading in a different direction; just as cool. I've been working on it for a few weeks after talking with John. Didn't want to post anything until I have all the wrinkles worked out. I should be able to update everyone by Monday. beerchug.gif

Anything west of the 605 will be on the pricey side. Traffic on the 210 even on the weekends is killer. A drive through Angeles Crest then the 14 to Devil's Punchbowl might be a nice run. We can find somewhere to eat in Pearblossom. Maybe Glendale or Eagle Rock would be a better place for hotel/motel rooms?
Just my 2 cents!

What about Mulholland Drive?

I know its a ways but it has always been a teener favorite.

Let's just say I have a whole new respect for John and his previous accomplishments. shades.gif Idyllwild is the Hub for several damned nice roads. The first day, after departing Temecula, we will make a run up Mt Palomar. We should arrive at the observatory close to noon.Stealing an idea from RRC 2012 I'm thinking about taking some sack lunches. Turkey for some, ham for others, w/a bag of chips. Maybe a Moon Beam Pie for Ellyut av-943.gif . Ya'll would bring your own sodas so I wouldn't have to tote 50 cans. idea.gif Comments?

You might consider contacting a local food truck company and see if they would set up for us.

Go for it! I did that at the Rt66 in Palm Springs. Saved $120 and I missed out on a lot. Have to leave early every nite; no beer unless I wanted to chance a DUI and an extra 2 hr's travel time every day. blink.gif
