With the blue skies cooperating as they are, do we dare tempt fate to plan "just one more" weekend ride before the weather closes in and the two lane passes are shuttered for a long winter's nap? Yes, I should think so!
Destination: South Lake Tahoe (Very near the casinos at Stateline, NV. and the Heavenly Gondola)
When: November 11-12
Where: There is a nicely maintained, modestly priced Days Inn within walking distance of The Brewery at South Lake Tahoe as well as Brewer's Branding Iron Restaurant. (Brewer's used to be Mulligan's. Same Irish charm but more steak. I recommend Brewer's for dinner.) It will be a little brisk after the sun goes down especially at the higher elevations but the trees are still turning even as the frost is on the pumpkin. Plan on temps in low to mid 30s at night!
Route: The Rally Point will be The Bonanza Restaurant in Jackson, CA on Saturday, November 11th at 1130. We will have lunch and then head over Hwy 88 over the top then through Hope Valley into South Lake Tahoe before the sun goes down.
835 N Main St, Jackson, Ca.
How: Make your own reservation online or over the phone at the Days Inn. Then list your name(s) on the sign up below. BYOB for a little "nightcap" party after dinner. Meet up for lunch but ride your own ride and be sure to stop at the many vista points along Hwy 88. Return by your own route and your personal schedule. There has been some discussion of a group going over to Virginia City Sunday morning. We'll decide Saturday night.
Caveat: If the weather forecast turns marginal or worse, the ride will be cancelled with adequate notice. It's simply the safe thing to do. And, if the weather stays nice, we'll raise a toast to those that balked and stayed home.
