Jeff, we will compare cars. I am thinking that mine will be at least twice as filthy as.yours. I haven't had a chance to clean mine since the last meet. Forget the wash... show up for dinner!

I might have time for a quick wash tonight after work, but depends on if I can see to wash at all.

Dam it! So now what, I gotta wash mine too? Maybe I'll go to a full service gas station and start out washing my windows. Then I'll wash the hood...then a door... Next thing you know, I'll have a clean car again!

Default Hamburger Meet

BURGER TIME
The mini meet dinner was supposed to start at 8:30 pm. This was to include 5 dudes, driving 5 Fits, to meet at "5 Guys Restaurant." That didn't quite happen as planned. Instead, we ended up at "5 Guys Restaurant," with 6 Fits, 5 Dudes and 1 Lady!
We all arrived at the same time, but mall parking was sparse. Eventually, we all got our Burgers.


THE FIT DRIVERS
The 5 Fit drivers were Konig_Feather, TPColgett, DoYouFit?, EXWRX and myself. Lady Annie was the driver of the 6th Fit.



After dinner, we went next door to Starbucks. We ordered our favorite beverage for dessert, and kicked it there waiting for SoloDolo. Around 11:00, we decided to do our photo shoot without him. Finally, at 11:45, we agreed that we had waited long enough. It was time for the "Midnight Run."

REDWOOD ROAD
The route that we took was a 12 mile stretch that contained a constant series of tight turns that undulated throughout the hillside. We cruised at a pace that was comfortable, yet brisk enough to generate just the right amount of lateral G's to keep us happy! I can probably best compare this run to "Space Mountain," except that this ride was 20 minutes long!

PHOTO SHOOT #2
At the end of our run, we parked our Fits for a second photo shoot. After about 15 minutes picture taking, we were joined by yet another car. This one was black and white. We were asked to disband, since it was past Oakland's 10:00 Curfew. We hastily said our good-byes, jumped into our cars, and efficiently disbursed.

Sorry we had to leave early, sounds like there was much fun after I had to bow out. Chloe was getting over a cold and tired. I am now coming down with one, so maybe it was for the best.

Default Here's a few more pictures...

Here's a few pictures we took before taking our Midnight Run.



I took about 20 pictures that night, but these are the only ones that I captured that were somewhat in focus. Without much light, it was difficult to hold the camera (phone) steady.
