  • Southwest Tour - Spring 2020 - Valley of Fire

    Join the S2KCA Southwest Tour - Spring 2020 - Valley of Fire
    Since we all had so much fun at the Southwest Tour 2019, we wanted to create another event for everyone to enjoy. Our new adventure explores the Las Vegas, NV area. We will travel through the Valley of Fire, enjoy a day on the Las Vegas Strip, and check out the views from Mt. Charleston. We have three full days of planned activities. The event is planned during the Spring weather, so the temperatures will still be pleasant. Join the party with all of our friends in the Southwest region. Everyone is welcome, but you must be an S2KCA member to attend the event.

                Booked! It'll be a 2-day drive from OKI, but I'm excited to join you in this tour!

                I should be able to get to Tinker AFB (OK), which will break up the trip fairly evenly.

                  Booked a room. I'm committed now (to something other than the nut house).

                    We’re going to talk about this and hope to have a decision within a week or so. We only get so many days off each year and we already have three big trips next year. I used to have frequent trips to Las Vegas for many years. The lure of the lights and tables has waned. Yet the dam tour I have not done in decades and it will bring back memories to visit Red stick State Park again if we can make it.

                      I have been to the dam and took a tour, but it was quite a few years ago now. I'm looking forward to the driving and the scenery and, of course, seeing people I haven't seen in awhile.

                      This trip might give me a deadline and incentive for an aftermarket seat cooler project.

                          With all of these ride and drive events I've been doing, I have found a few things that the newer cars have which I wish the S2000 had. Some things are not possible. Others are achievable. The seats in the S2000 already have perforated sections and air can flow through that. Kits exist for this. I plan to look into that and, if it's doable on my budget and skill set, I plan to give it a shot.

                          This is something which might be great for a midwinter tech day here in SoCal.

                            Sounds like a great idea, let me know how you do! I've often wanted cooled seats, but couldn't come up with a doable solution.
                            Upholstery is not my best skill, although I can do a great fix on scuffed discolored seat bolsters with leather stain.
                            FYI To find a $33 to $60 simple solution alternative try Amazon "Air conditioned seat cushion" not factory installed or stock looking but is, I imagine, functional.

                              Of course I'll post about it. I mean... did you think for even a split second that I wouldn't?

                              If I'm able to do anything with this idea, I will definitely post in the appropriate sub-forum for that and share with everyone.

                                Keep me posted, as I want to look into that, as well as, seat warmers! It's the Midwest, ya know! Early Spring and Autumn (we drive until the salt and snow stop us!), the warmers would be a nice addition.

                                  I discovered that the Carroll Shelby Museum in located in Las Vegas. I am shifting the drive days to add this stop to our trip.
