    I am not dogmatic about that :)

    But I have no plans for another trip at this point.
    I'll post again when something is brewing.

    Looks like a great trip! I've sold my bastard of a Seven (Locost) but bought an Elise. Am I eligible to join?

    Yes, Gert's fascination with well-crafted metal parts and stained glass lighting is well known around these parts.

    edit -- Looks like a great couple of days out, Gert. Wish I could have been there, but circumstances conspired against that this time.

    Good trip. Weather was perfect, 75-80 degrees most of the time. The Sierra foothills have some stunning roads. No traffic and amazingly lot of new pavement. For that matter, our last leg on Angeles Forest/Crest Hwy was also devoid of any traffic.

    Somewhere HERE





    Oh yes...and there (Brewbakers in Visalia):

    Dang, you are right. If still closed we will probably just take the freeway home from Santa Clarita. Trip is long enough already.

    You may want to check Sand Canyon Rd before your trip back. The LA County website shows that it still closed as of this morning.

    Angeles Crest and Angeles Forest highways are listed as open.

    Cows are bigger than bears but they don't bite as hard.

    I'd love to join but just started a new job and will have to work part of the weekend

    Wow, that looks like a great trip!
    I've been wanting to do the drive up to Lake Isabella for ages. I was curious if the Caliente Bodfish Rd was a seven-able road.

    - Hwy14 to Red Rock, then 178 to Lake Isabella

    - Lake Success to Eagle Mountain Casino for breakfast
    - White River to Wofford Heights (Lake Isabella)
    - Hwy 178 (possibly Caliente Bodfish Road instead depending on traffic)
    - Hwy58 then Woodford-Tehachapi Rd.

    - Sand Canyon back home

    Might be warmish but probably not too hot and a lot of the distance is at altitude.
