I'm thinking I want to come see some things. I am not yet sure about camping or coming for the day. I rarely see other things on the road so I would have a good time seeing how others have theirs set up.

YIPPEE!
Just made a reservation at the host hotel for the Prado show.
I decided that sleeping in a bed might be better than camping for my 65 year old bones.
I can't wait to get my car back from Winter storage to begin preparing it for the trip.
This should be FUN!

Here are the plans for Saturdays Cruise. We will have a photographer doing shots the entire way and it will go into HotVWs.

Things West 2018 Cruise: For Saturday after OCTO.
Map: This rout is just over 3 hours long after OCTO.
https://goo.gl/maps/Ef3S6LTiZGJ2
181 will depart from Blackstar in the morning and meet up at OCTO in Long Beach.
Leave OCTO at 11am to Coast for Seal Beach Pier parking lot for first coastal photo op.
Then head South down 1 to Pier Plaza and Amphitheatre at “Duke’s Huntington Beach”.
Turn left at Dukes to cruise up Main st in Huntington.
Down 1 to Aliso Beach Park for 2nd coastal photo op.
Head south on 1 to Newport Beach. Lunch in Newport Beach.
After lunch continue to head south on 1 towards Laguna Beach. Depending on time. Turn North on Highway 133 toward the 241 freeway to the 91 and Prado Park off the 91/71. Cool
The final map may change due to the awesome LA traffic or other variables. Wink
