Interested so long as my car is not down for repairs (suspension rebuild impending). Last time we got members together was the fall of 2016, about time for a repeat.

Definitely interested if weather permits. No fun with washouts, cold, and bad conditions and summer tires. I've seen too many things turn bad. We cancelled a run just s few weeks back for this reason.

If it's kind last winter let's push to March.

Sounds like a plan. We can also have a mini photoshoot at the same time, so we can submit some sick shots for the calendar.

I'd love to come out, too! Sounds like a fun time. I'm terribly inconsistent on the forum though, if this starts coming together and I don't respond here - would someone please ping me via PM? Or via text - four-one-five 7-four-7 one-7-two-7? Please? Thanks!

#doublepost but I plan on going. Will probably stop at sightglass so I can enjoy some bougie 3rd wave coffee while drooling at the nice cars.

After driving my z through a snowstorm, this rain is nothing! But I definitely agree that the meet should happen after the rainy season ends.

You're right, rain is nothing compared to snow and ice. But tires matter.

I remember driving to Laguna Seca with my wife a few years back, same cars, different tires. I was working as hard as I could not to hydroplane and die at 55, my wife is perfectly capable and happy to drive 75 without any hydroplaning due to the fact that her tires pushed water away much better than mine. My tires were much better on track in the dry, but not in the rain!

The route we'd take is subject to flooding, mudslides, fallen trees, and silt. Extreme summer tires and 50 degree or lower temps plus wet weather don't mix, in fact it's more or less same as driving in snow/ice.

I know I'm being opinionated, but after seeing two accidents due to the interaction of these variables on drives (it's hard to drive like grandma even if conditions require) I'd rather mitigate the risks by choosing another time of year.
