I believe its over 20 with friends outside of these forums.
Your Alpha is plenty fast if you don't wanna take the Maser or Fcar.
If you have done the "forks" the roads we are hitting is similar to those those twisty roads and roller coaster hills.
There is police presence in and around the areas we are going so we will not be driving stupidly. But there are some areas have nice spirited driving. It will be a nice cruise.


The admin stuff on morning of the drive:
- Detailed Google maps are only provided at start point including all turns
- A quick walk through of maps and direction at start point
- The map will have some addresses or weypoints so that if you get lost, those points will stir you back
- If you are lost and do not have a passenger to help with navigation ... roll down your window and wave the car behind to go ahead. Don't lead the people behind you if your blind
- Keep a mental note which car was ahead of you
- Excercise Responsible judgement on safety and traffic rules and regulations. This is a cruise not a race.
- All drives usually start ON TIME. So show up 15-30 mins before start time
- Fill up with gas BEFORE every drive
- Suggest to bring a GPS
- Please excercise responsible driving. Please let me know if anyone in the group does burn outs, fishtails, drifting, driving on the shoulder.
- bring your FRS walkies if you own one
- ask for the leaders phone number
