    Maybe. Anything is possible. But possible ≠ likely. Tahoe can be pretty overrun with tourists and that can make for some less than favorable driving conditions. And they do a lot of pavement repair work during the good weather season which makes the area even more of a hassle from fresh tar/slurry, gravel, and just plain stop and go (or stop and stop).

    I'm open to suggestions, of course. The only worry I have is that it would appear that everywhere I like for drives tends to have a freaking wildfire or a mudslide shortly after I go scout it and post that I'm seriously interested in putting together a drive there.

    , right? Jinx or something.

    So I dunno. Besides, wasn't Tahoe (or Reno?) done and then done again a bit back in the day? Before my time, but I seem to have heard a bunch about that area and it being a point of contention... something about a Sac2KDays or something. And yeah, soooooo not wanting to dredge up whatever that was. I had a hard enough time trying to explain to people that S2KDays SoCal was not another HondaHomecoming parking lot meet, NOT another "megameet" (whatever that was), and not the giant Huntington Beach cruise-in ClusterFack that resulted in multiple S2000s driving into each other in 5mph traffic because they weren't paying attention to the actual driving. So I kind of want to avoid places that have been "done" before. That could be challenging.

        You are talking about SacS2KDays of which I was involved in #2-#6. It was BY FAR (I can't make that big enough) my favorite weekend of the year. I looked forward to that weekend more than Christmas and my birthday combined. I miss it terribly every June. It was a three day event where day 1 was a meet, day 2 was a GREAT drive through the mountains from Sacramento to Reno and party at the Grand Sierra Resort and day three was a drive back to Sacramento through the mountains.
        Happiness is a nice road, great weather, and driving the S with Sue in the seat next to me.

        I know for a FACT that the last year of production of the S2000 is 2003!!!!!
        After that, it will be the S2200 under an assumed name.

          Nope. I don't think that is what I was talking about. The event that someone was mentioning to me caused some sort of serious blowback and a HUGE falling out amongst a lot of people and much bad blood, as it was described to me. Doesn't sound at all like what you are talking about above with the huge font.

            BTW, if you miss it so much (I mean, Christmas *and* your birthday combined?!), why don't you revive it? You aren't that far away that it couldn't be done. Something so loved sounds like the kind of thing you don't let die.

              I’ve driven from Sacramento to Tahoe and back again for ski trips and on a cross-country from from New York City to Sacramento. Those are Heavenly Roads. I’d love to be up there again with the S the next time.

                I could definitely see those.

                But Utah... just keeps seeming like a good idea. Zion, Bryce, Grand Staircase... those places seem to keep calling to me. Just not in July or August.
