  • Old 40/ Lincoln / Victory Highway

    HEAR YE! HEAR YE! HEAR YE!

    LAIRD MICHAEL THE BALD ( aka TIS HIMSELF) having ventured forth slaying many dragons and other undesirable entities making the way smoothe, has completed his reconnaissance of the Old 40 / Lincoln / Victory Highway Drive and found the

    route in question to in serviceable and suited to the passage of the S.

    THEREFORE: It is decreed that any and all members of Clan S (and anyone else who cares to attend and can keep up) are invited to attend this running of the S's on October 21, 2017.

    The Clan is to gather at the Raley's/Starbucks parking lot at Horseshoe Bar Road / I 80 intersection at 10:00 p.m.

    The assembled horde of minions will depart and rampage through the wilds of Loomis to the Old High Road 40 and thence to the hamlet of Newcastle and loop through said hamlet on the Old Lincoln Hwy and return to Old 40.

    Thence, the minions will travel via Ophir Road to Auburn Town and by travel on Lincoln Way and the High Street shall come to Bowman Overpass.

    Passing under said overpass they shall travel on Bowman Road and by various other long and winding roads and lanes to the village of Colfax.

    Passing through said village and entering onto Highway 174 they shall continue taking Rollins Lake Road and other long and winding roads and lanes through Gold Run and onto the environs of Dutch flat (pit stop if needed).

    Continuing on to Baxter the minions will enter a time portal and enter the New High Road of 80 and proceed to the Cisco Grove off ramp where the time portal will reopen and deposit them to continue the trek.

    Crossing over 80 and entering Hampshire Rocks Road which becomes Donner Pass Road, The minions will cross Donner Summit and descend into the environs of the Lake of Donner and the hovels of Truckee.

    Continuing past the Lake of Donner toward the hovels of Truckee, rest, refreshment, and sustenance will be soat at Smokey's Kitchen(Barbeque joint).

    Once rested and sated the minions will return via the route just traveled to intersection of Magra Road and Rollins Lake Road turn onto Norton Grade Road and enter the Land of Mordor.

    The surviving minions will reenter Rollins Lake Road and proceed to Highway 174 and thereby to Mt. Olive Road in search of the Montoliva Winery where the grail cups will be filled and their survival will be toasted.

    Please let me know if you plan to make this one so I can give the winery and the eatery an idea of the number to expect.


    I am also hoping that the weather will cooperate. Because of the twisty nature of many of the roads and mountain environment low temperatures, heavy rain, wind and or snow and ice.will cause me to call the drive off. Keep your fingers crossed.

    HOPE TO SEE YOU ON SATURDAY


    Laird Michael wishes to thank Sir Richard and Lady Janet for the awesome drive on Saturday last.

    Laird Michael also thanks Sir John for the kind gift of the"Appropriate Grail Cup". It will be well used.

      I've heard meals at Donner Summit are well-deserved, but can be a bit hard to swallow.

          LAIRD MICHAEL THE BALD has just realized that his original posting (submitted by his cretinous alter ego Sir Robin the Mentally Challenged Dyslexic Chicken, who is being deprived of his vitamine W for the foreseeable future as we speak) contained an error as to the time of the gathering of the Clan.

          THE CORRECT GATHERING TIME IS 10:00 A.M.

          His Lairdship is most embarrassed and most apologetic for this occurrence, and hopes that no one was injured or inconvenienced by it.

            Methinks, as acting Lord of the Clan known as S2KCA, that LAIRD MICHAEL THE BALD should be granted A Royal Knighthood, and should also be appointed Official Herald of the Clan, for his meothode and indirecteness of communication is recognized as incredibly superficial and ably inconsistent with current social mores. Let all who may disagree be tossed unceremoniously into a pit of Dodge Vipers with blown head gaskets.

            IT SHALL BE WRITTEN.

                  I'm afraid Sir Carl and Lady Terry will be missing this one. We have a 60th surprise birthday party to attend in Brentwood. May the sword from the stone protect and keep you all well.

                          LAIRD MICHAEL THE BALD ( aka TIS HIMSELF) has concluded after consultation with Cathbad the Druid and augering the entrails of a parrot, that it is necessary to post the attached map showing the route of the Old Highway 40 Drive/Quest. This is required to allay the fears and angst created in the hearts of the Minions by the route chosen and the wild creatures that are rumored to inhabit the regions adjacent to the route. Reports from the region have not detailed any undue activity of the creatures, as yet. It is anticipated that Full Armor will not be needed. As is normal there are no reports for Mordor as it is well known as a dark and forbidding place where light does not penetrate nor escape from easily. The map is also posted to assist the Minions with the needed preparations of and exercising of their steeds.

                          Laird Michael is looking forward to leading those Minions with stout hearts and questionable sanity who choose to join him on this Drive/Quest.

                            LAIRD MICHAEL THE BALD ( aka TIS HIMSELF) has consulted the Oracle of NWS Weather Gods and received their forecast and blessing for the lower environs and the Donner Summit area of the Drive. Rain is forecast for the evening of Thursday with showers continuing on Friday morning. Conditions will shift to Partly Cloudy on Friday night with Mostly Sunny conditions on Saturday. Daytime temperatures are forecast to be in the high 40's to the low 50's. The Minions are requested to be suitably attired for and their steeds prepared for these conditions.
