See you there!

My very tentative plan is to leave Lancaster Saturday morning, heading up the east side of the Sierra, crossing Sonora or Tioga Pass (havent decided yet), head up thru Gold Country a bit, cross to the coast, and come down PCH to the meeting, arriving on Thursday. Leave Sunday morning, ride thru Carrizo Plain back home. Might do a little fishing on the way, plenty of stopping and taking in the scenery, might throw in some offroad (nothing too strenuous). Not a whole lot of preplanning in that respect, just going to play it by ear and see how it goes.

If anyone is interested feel free to PM me. Like I said, Im riding solo, would be kinda nice to have a little company for once.

Seeing as how this is my yearly vacation Im looking to just relax and enjoy my week of riding. The only 3 fixed parts of my plan are leaving Saturday, Cambria Thursday, and home Sunday .
Justin,
As you are "heading up through Gold Country a bit" on your way to Cambria... I live in Roseville, near GC, riding 01 650gs to the HU meeting. I was planning on leaving on Wed afternoon, overnight in San Jose at friends, then head toward Cambria. Would like to join you if our routes can intersect at a convenient time and place. I'm new to HUBB, how do I PM you?

Hey Patrick. At a computer now so its easier to post.

That would probably work reall well. I changed plans so Im not going to be going through Gold Country. Instead Im going to super slab up to Redding, cut over to Humboldt Bay and then work my way down to Cambria. If you want to meet up Wednesday morning, that would definately work. Im planning on stopping in San Francisco for the night on Tuesday to see my cousin. Wednesday morning Im going to try and leave early to beat the morning traffic. After that I was planning on running coast highway down, going to try getting to Prewitt Ridge weds night to camp before going to Cambria thursday morning.

If youve never been to Prewitt Ridge, its a pretty neat spot. If its not occupied, theres a cool camp site up on the top that looks down on the ocean. Thats the one Im hoping for.

Anyways, if youre interested Ill pm you my number.

All you need is on the web page!

Horizons Unlimited Motorcycle Travellers' Website, California Travellers Meeting

For detailed location scroll down a bit to:
Maps and distances and how to get there!


and just below that click "more information" and all will be revealed!

You'll see this and much more:

Google maps, enter: 1473 Randall Drive, Cambria Ca 93428 to find it.

Important note: In 2011 we had quite a few complaints from neighbours about the traffic and noise, so PLEASE be super careful to be quiet, and follow the HU signs to the event.
GPX file to make it really easy to find!


From Camp Ocean Pines information:
In short, despite what Google Maps may lead you to believe, reaching camp from Highway 1 is simple, left on Ardath, left on Randall and you can't miss it!


Need a bit more detail? From the 101 N -
1. Exit the 101 in San Luis Obispo onto Highway 1 North (Exit for Morro Bay)
2. Drive north past Morro Bay and Cayucos
3. Turn Left at the Ardath Dr. and take it until you reach a 4-way stop. Continue straight on Ardath veering slightly to the left once the ocean is in view. Turn left onto Randall Dr. after reaching the next stop sign. From here you will travel up a hill and the sign for Camp Ocean Pines will be on your right.



From The 101 S -
1. Exit the 101 in Paso Robles onto Highway 46 West (Towards Cambria)
2. Exit the 46 onto Highway 1 North (right turn)
3. Turn Left at the Ardath Dr. and take it until you reach a 4-way stop. Continue straight on Ardath veering slightly to the left once the ocean is in view. Turn left onto Randall Dr. after reaching the next stop sign. From here you will travel up a hill and the sign for Camp Ocean Pines will be on your right.



Important!

Keep an eye out for the HU signs - once you find one, follow it all the way for the best route - and least chance of aggravating the already twitchy neighbours. (PLEASE keep it quiet and slow once you're off the highway and into the residential area).

Camping starts Thursday night.

Those who have volunteered to assist with setup can camp Wednesday night.

See you there! It's going to be a good one - the schedule is full to overflowing!
