Maybe the stars will align and I'll be able to time things such that the "CA or Bust!" Penske truck will be passing through the land of entrapment looking for a Charlie Sheen party at the lake. It could happen

Next project is to book a venue for the Saturday night dinner. I'm gonna head down there this Saturday to look at the facilities at the Pelican, and talk to a couple of the restaurants regarding catering our dinner on Saturday.

I'll keep you posted, T-shirt design & steeker design is in the works as well!

Dear Diary,

Don't ever ride in front of Chris. Don't ever pass Chris even if he waves you on. Don't ride near Chris. Don't let Chris ride up behind you. Don't go on any rides Chris is on. If you find yourself on a ride with Chris, have someone distract him before the ride and remove all GoPro batteries and SD cards from his cameras. If you fail to follow any of these instructions, fall down in front of Chris in the parking lot to get the pain over with.

Hilltop Café went out of business in early 2012, was taken over by the Sunset Grill, which is still located across the street and just north of the Desert View on the main drag (north end of T or C).

We will be using this place as a breakfast spot and starting point for the majority of our rides, I will be talking to these guys Saturday as well as the hotel proprietors and several other restaurants.

They serve some great burritos and carne adovada, but no beer/wine, so am looking for another spot for the Saturday night festivities.....
