[Healeys] your trip to Conclave - Down 395?

Having lived in Nevada for several years, I have driven route 395 several times to the Bay Area in an air conditioned car and would recommend not driving that route unless you are in the same. It is the most boring, hot and desolate highway in the country. God forbid anyone has a breakdown. Doesn’t take long for bones to bleach before another car passes by. Just think of hours before you see one.

Ira, Based on the experience of a group of us who drove to the Ventura West Coast Meet in our Healeys many years ago, I would strongly suggest you rethink the idea of driving down 395. Yes, it's shorter in time, but it is absolutely the most desolate, boring and hot (let me emphasize that) HOT drive you can possible imagine. There's a reason that the U.S. government put the internment camps out in that area during World War II -- there's nothing within 100 miles of the camps. When we were driving, one of the drivers called out on his CB -- "Stop the next time you see any shade along the road" -- we drove for another hour before we saw a tree.


Take a little more time and do the traditional route down Interstate 5, then cut over to 101 and follow that down to north of Los Angeles where you can cut over to BBL.


Anyone else agree with me?
