2014 Back Country Rds & Hwy 94
Written by Myrna   
Monday, 24 March 2014

We had a great turnout this month 3/23/2014, we had 14 kappas (8 Sol & 6 Sky). I believe it’s been the only time Solstices have outnumbered Skys, or at least for a very long time. We had 2 proud Solstice owners join us for their very first drive – James and Eric. March weather is always funky! But, it was great to us for our monthly drive! We meet at 9 AM in El Cajon, where the weather was cool about 73 degrees. We drove east on Interstate 8 and exited on “Buckman Springs Road.” We drove on Old Highway 80 and made a restroom stop at the Golden Acorn Casino. By then, the weather cleared and warmed up to about 80 degrees. We drove to Boulevard and made a stop at the Wisteria Candy Cottage. Then, we merged onto Hwy 94 and headed to lunch to Barrett Junction Café.  After a nice meal and each other’s company, we headed towards the wonderful back side country roads. We thank Cal and Marilyn for their detailed planning, hard work, time and dedication they put into this drive! They did a wonderful job! We look forward to seeing you next month!

Thanksgiving Drive 11/4/2012
Written by Myrna   
Thursday, 08 November 2012

San Diego Roadsters got together once again! Our sunny San Diego keeps allowing for wonderful drives with our tops down! This was a special drive, since long-term members Ryan and Anna are leaving us soon for a new adventure in Portland, Oregon. They will be missed, but we know that they will build a new Sky/Sol family up north and wish them the very best! We met on Sunday, November 4th, at the Escondido Westfield Mall. We had a good turnout, a total of 13 roadsters (9 Sky & 4 Sol). We took off at 10 AM. We headed towards Valley Center. We made a stop at “Bates Nut Farm” to go see the Christmas craft fair. We spent 1 hr there. We got back in our roadsters and had a blast on “Mesa Grande Road.” We made a second stop at “Dudley’s Bakery” – picked-up a pie and bread. From there, we headed to lunch for some great Italian food in Poway. We wish everyone a great Thanksgiving and hope to see you in December!

Fall Julian Drive
Written by Myrna   
Friday, 26 October 2012

Fall is here!!! The Sky and Solstice family decided to go on our traditional October Julian drive through the mountains. The weather was not the greatest. It was gloomy and sprinkling. But, we decided to meet and hope for the best! For the very first time we had an even number of vehicles: 4 Sky & 4 Sol. We had 2 meeting spots, one South County, where the drive started from and was lead by Tim & Lori. They drove up toward Rancho Bernardo to meet the North County group on Highland Valley Road. We met up for about 15 minutes and hit this fun and twisty road up to Ramona. We made a stop for about 20 minutes at Dudley’s bakery to pick-up fresh bread and pies. Then, we drove through Julian and had lunch in Lake Cuyamaca.

Sunday Drive and Picnic
Written by Jack Gauthier   
Friday, 28 September 2012

What could be better than spending a day driving our Saturn Sky & Pontiac Solstice. That would be driving it with friends from the San Diego Roadsters.

We started off meeting at CVS parking lot and then driving through the mountains for about 1 hour to end up at Bernado Winery.

Tasted some amazing wines and spent a little time shopping then off to Lake Poway Park for a Picnic. 

Hope to see you at the next one!!

Kappa Picnic Auto Museum
Written by Myrna   
Tuesday, 03 July 2012

Sheena & I would like to thank Myrna & San Diego Roadsters for giving us the opportunity to host the Kappa Picnic Auto Museum Tour 6/24/2012 and especially those of You that decided to go on the run. By the perma grins and conversations throughout the day we were some happy campers.

Weather perfect, nice driving all day with Kappa Family and not be hammered by the wind and noise or using tunnel vision concentration needed on freeways, cruising speeds allowed one to hear birds singing, converse with passenger without having to shout, hear and talk on the walkie talkie, tidbits gathered among the conversations at each pit stop add the picnic spot Happy Kappas and you have magic.

           Peace!

       Sheena & Julius

Solar Eclipse Event

San Diego Solar Eclipse Event  5/20/2012

The Sky and Sol family reunited once again! We had 3:30 pm scheduled dinner at Beachside Bar & Grill in Encinitas and sat in the outdoor back patio. 30 members showed with a total of 9 Skys and 2 Solstices. Joining us for the day - Martin Scott, his wife Rose and Rich from Arizona. Martin and Rich are 2 of our 3 founders of the Sky & Sol Club; also, Nick Thom representing LA Chapter. After a few hours of great company and food we headed out to our chosen viewing and picture spot for the Solar Eclipse. We drove approximately 3 miles to San Elijo Ave (a street parallel to Highway 101) above the train tracks where we could clearly see the ocean with no obstructions. We backed in our 11 Kappas along the side of the street. We took group photos and waited patiently for the phenomenon. Unfortunately, the overcast weather overpowered and all we were left to see was some sunshine reflecting off the shore. After a 45-minute photo shoot and mingling, our Kappa family headed their own separate ways back home. This concludes another fun and memorable chapter in our Sky and Sol lives.
