Redwoods Road Trip 2014

Redwoods Road Trip 2014

Disclaimer:
---------------------------------------------

This a pay your own way event. This means even me the organizer pays my own way to attend. As noted in other events I have organized, this is where the insanity of what I do comes in. Don't ask I don't get it either. I recently made a website to help broadcast day drives and these road trips.
---------------------------------------------

This is a road trip event for anyone and everyone. This is not a race or rally so if you are looking for a Gumball event this is not the event for you. The event does have fun back roads driving and some great stops. For references on past events look up Euro Cars Road Trip Yellowstone and California 500 Miglia.

Register here: Redwoods Road Trip - April 26 ? 28

Deadline to register is April 5th for decals to be mailed. Final registration is April 14th, decal pickup at event start.

Event details and registration:



Redwoods Road Trip – April 26 - 28

The Redwoods Road Trip is a fun three-day event that takes us through the land of giants. The event starts in Novato and heads north up the Pacific Coast Highway, making stops along the way for pictures and to socialize. The key stop for the first day is the Point Arena Lighthouse Museum and lunch in Mendocino. Day two is all about seeing the giant redwoods along the Avenue of the Giants, Lady Bird Johnson Grove, and Big Tree Wayside. Day three the group drives home with one more stop to see the Redwoods and ending in Redding for participants to make their way home.

Unlike rallies and road course events, we encourage people to stay in a group and stop at the planned destinations, as this is a road trip not a rally. However, the stops and activities are suggestions, not mandates. Our format is for those individuals, couples or families, who want to have an adventure as well as make new friends with fellow enthusiasts. We mix the day up between driving sections, photo stops and sightseeing opportunities for everyone. This is not a race, so if you are looking for a competitive event this is not for you.

Fees schedule

I worked out group rates for all the activities and two nights of hotels. The hotels also include a full hot breakfast for hotel 1 and continental for hotel 2. The totals below are for the two nights of hotels, event insurance, decals with your number choice and shipping.

- 2 nights with King Bed $282.92
- 2 nights dual queen beds - $284.84

This day will be focused on making stops at several trails that take you in and around the giant redwoods of the area. These are easy trails and are not that strenuous. Make sure to have a charged camera, as you will be taking lots of pictures. Leave from Garberville at 9:00am On the DOT

The drive home will start for the group at 9:00am from the hotel. We will take Highway 36 over to Grizzly Creek Redwoods State Park. From here, people can either trek back to 101 to head to the Bay Area, or do the full loop to Red Bluff to enjoy an amazing road of twists and turns. We advise you do the Highway 36 run, as the road is amazing.

As with all these events, they are meant to be fun a social so tell others as all are welcome.

Q&A Follow-up.

1. The event is this year 2014. Sorry for the minor typo in the post.

2. The drive will have "drives" sections as in past events and day trips. If you have never been on one of our group drives then you will find out real quick what me mean by this =)
