    Sunday, October 4, 2020
    8:30am to 2:30pm

    Meet up location:
    Parking lot at Civic Center Drive and Vista Pacifica, Malibu CA
    GPS coordinates: 34.0369384, -118.6988714


    Back to the Bu, but with a twist.

    Time to try a new route. We are adding a road which we used to avoid, but which is now an amazing bit of fun, and it's smooth as silk since they finished fully repaving it just a few months ago. It's not Mulholland Highway's the Snake, but it's definitely a tight, challenging bit, and absolutely beautiful with ZERO room for stupid. It's called Yerba Buena and Little Sycamore. So come on out and enjoy the best roads in SoCal with The EOQ Drive Group.

    Social distancing and masks required -- no exceptions. If you exit your car, mask on.

    Maximum number of cars on this drive will be 30. Seventeen signed up on Facebook already and we have a no-flake rule; that means those 17 *will* be there, and the list will only get longer. We run a tight ship and these are the best organized drives around. You will not be disappointed.


    UPDATES:
    Meet up point is at the parking lot for a bus stop on Civic Center Way in Malibu. (THIS IS A NEW SPOT! WE HAVE NEVER MET THERE BEFORE.)

    Please be considerate of the neighbors and the church near where we are meeting. Keep the noise down. Approach this location from Malibu Canyon Road, drive to the road closed signs, turn left onto Vista Pacifica, then left into the driveway, and left into the parking lot. Here are the GPS coordinates for it: 34.0369384, -118.6988714

    Bring: 1) Full tank of gas. 2) Sunscreen. 3) Water. 4) MASK for ALL participants. 5) FRS walkie-talkies if you have them. 6) Highly recommended: bring a camp chair and your own lunch. We will stop where there is food, but the lines are long and slow. So we strongly suggest bringing your own.

    If you get out of your car for ANY reason, PUT YOUR MASK ON! No exceptions.

    Our path will take us North on PCH. We will turn right on Latigo Canyon, right onto Malibu Canyon, left onto Mulholland Highway, right to continue Mulholland and Decker Canyon, left to stay on Decker Canyon and all the way down to PCH. At PCH we will turn right and head to Leo Carrillo state beach and enter the parking lot on the right. We will drive straight at the visitor info booth and continue underneath PCH to the beach side toward the furthest possible parking area where we will stop for 15 minutes to stretch, enjoy the view, then take off before we have to pay for parking. (Bring $3 just in case!)

    From Leo Carrillo beach, we will continue north on PCH. At Yerba Buena Road (you’ll recognize it because it’s immediately after Neptune’s Net) we will turn right. Follow that as it becomes Little Sycamore Canyon Road and then dead ends into Mulholland Highway. We will then turn left, and then left again to stay on Mulholland. When Decker splits off, we turn RIGHT to stay on Mulholland, then left at the next stop sign to stay on Mulholland. We will cross Kanan Dume Road and go to the Snake Overlook. You’ll go past the “road closed” sign to the fenced in section. Park on the sides of the road safely and we will get out and take a little walk on the paved road to the overlook. It is very different from what it used to look like in years gone by.

    After that stretch break, we will head back to Kanan Dume and make a right. Then turn right onto Troutdale Road, and left onto Mulholland Highway. This part is a slow cruise to avoid tickets, so enjoy the scenery and stick with Mulholland to Malibu Canyon Road. We will turn right and head back to PCH. At PCH we will turn left, and then a left at Cross Creek Road. Head for Whole Foods toward the back of the shopping area off of Cross Creek. That is our lunch area. There are clean restrooms both public and at the Whole Foods. The area near the kids zone is nice and there are several unopened businesses with shaded spots where we can sit safely distanced. Masks can come off while eating, of course, but go back on when we are done.

    After lunch, it’s a short drive up Malibu Canyon to Piuma. We will turn right on Piuma Road, turn left on Schueren Road. That becomes Saddle Peak and we turn right at the stop sign onto Tuna Canyon. Bottom of Tuna Canyon is the end of our drive.

    Any questions?

    The only problem with telling people to live by the Golden Rule is that it fails to take into account the existence of Masochists.

    Today I learned: The Golden Rule is a maxim which is found in almost every religion and culture in the world. For instance, in Christian sects, it is attributed to Matthew (7:12). In fact, 143 leaders of the world's major faiths endorsed the Golden Rule as part of the 1993 "Declaration Toward a Global Ethic." Essentially no religion misses it entirely, and a belief in God is not necessary to endorse it. So technically, it's not even really a religious thing at all.

      Yeah, it's some awesome scenery too.

      I just got back from recon'ing for our lunch/break spot. Trying to make sure we have safe and good places to stop and rest/eat/potty is always a challenge, but the Covid-19 aspect adds a whole other level to the complexity.

      I also got to drive by Pepperdine and see the Sep 11 memorial Waves of Flags display. There are 2,997 flags. One flag for every life lost on September 11, 2001.

            Looks like a nice birthday drive for Jason. Hope the weather holds out, the virus God help us, gives out a little, and the fires settle out a lot for you. Enjoy it old man! Happy Birthday!

              Drive groups are used to sort ourselves by preferred pace. I'm drafting up the groups this week. Below are the options for preferred pace:

              Relaxed.
              Medium.
              More spirited.

              Final groupings will be created no later than Friday night.


              This drive is going to include the most beautiful stretch of canyon road near the coast (Yerba Buena) and a stop at the currently closed Mulholland overlook at the Snake. See what the famous stretch of road looks like devoid of vehicles as nature tries to take it back.

              There may or may not be small flat plastic bits with ink on them available to Club members to acquire at this drive.

                Oh... and we have some giveaways. I got my Club welcome packet and am excited to be able to share some of my S2KCA goodies with folks via the random wheel of names app.

                    You mean Welcome Packet? Hmm, well, the best thing to do is probably post in the Welcome Thread and ask Rose Mary about it. Looks to me like you are listed as having renewed in August. I know it feels like forever when you are waiting for something exciting, but it looks like it's been 2 months for you. Mine took a bit longer than that -- about 6. Contact Rose Mary and see what's up.

                        You know Bill or Billy a lot of things have been slow to happen, if at all, this year. Maybe it's on hold waiting to be sanitized.
                        One way or the other a friendly reminder to Rose Mary might do the trick.

                        We can smell the smoke every time we go out to get the mail, the poor people up in Napa!

                          Sadly, I took ONE picture the entire day (well, three shots of the same thing, so I only count it as one). I'm sure others who attended will share pictures on Facebook and I'll be able to post up those. This was at the end of the drive and several people had already gone on their way home. But it still gets the gist of the happy faces (following pandemic protocol) of people enjoying their cars.

                                      I seem to recognize this from S2KDays 2018. Is this at the bottom of Tuna Canyon?

                                        The only problem with telling people to live by the Golden Rule is that it fails to take into account the existence of Masochists.

                                        Today I learned: The Golden Rule is a maxim which is found in almost every religion and culture in the world. For instance, in Christian sects, it is attributed to Matthew (7:12). In fact, 143 leaders of the world's major faiths endorsed the Golden Rule as part of the 1993 "Declaration Toward a Global Ethic." Essentially no religion misses it entirely, and a belief in God is not necessary to endorse it. So technically, it's not even really a religious thing at all.
