Smile Bay Area Meet - interested

Hi fellow BMW M3 owners!

I thought it might be fun to get together for coffee and talk shop about our beautiful M3s. I wanted to find out how many people would be interested and than look for an appropriate/convenient location. Please reply to this post so that I can get a sense on whether you would prefer the weekend or evenings during the week.

thanks and cheers

Most likely weekends here as well, as I get off work at 7pm during the week.

if we can't get a lot of interest for something soon - how about a drive up to mt tam and a little past stinson beach with whoever can make it? an early morning drive would be a lot of fun - lunch along the hwy 1 before returning?

takers?

we could do early morning on the 4th (you'd be back in time for the family)
morning of the 12th or 19th?

Dave - you're the local in those parts - so maybe a little route mapping would be helpful - do you usually go all the way up to the top of mt.tam? or do you take the hwy 1 stinson beach turn?

how far up 1 do you usually go?

I flew back from Vegas on Sunday...needed some fresh air ...so I drove up to Tam.

Usually, I start in Milll Valley, head up to Tam(very top is a nice view, but not a through street), and then head down to Stinson. If I am headed to deep Marin, I'll continue past Stinson on the backroads towards Bolinas and then pop out in San Rafael or Lucas Valley. If i'm head back to the city and just wanted to do a quick/fun drive, like this past Sunday, I'll head back from Stinson on highway 1 and then pop out in Sausalito....so it's a circle from Mill Valley, to Tam, then back to SF....this is the one that I suggest we could do.

You can also throw in Muir Woods and get another section of twisties in. I've honestly been doing these drives for years now....never gets old.

I'll be in town this weekend, maybe playing golf at San Geranimo on Sat, which is also back in the that area as well( Nicasio Valley).

Let me check what my weekend looks like, if open, either Sat or Sun is fine with me.

Funny, those roads(excluding highway 1) really are a bit of a seceret...mostly motorcycle crews, porsches, and a few bmw's bomb through there.

Never been to Marshalls...but for oysters, Hog Island is great over there in Pt. Reyes

Sounds like a plan to me.. Sunday doesn't work for me.. so hopefully Sat's a go.

does hog island have a restaurant or is it purchase and shuck? lazy man's choice - Marshal's store sells bbq'd oysters for 10$/half-dozen - tasty tasty.

but either way - i'm down for whatever - if we have some non-seafood drivers - we can pick something besides hog/marshall

sfbimmer & fmquadri:

Unfortunately I have Tee time at 2 on Sat in Marin. If you guys do want to do an drive earlier in the morning or at least meet up, let me know, as the golf course reachable through the backroads where we're thinking about heading to.


If you do want to meet up, send me a private message and number; as this will hit my Blackberry.

Let me know.

so let's meet up early - less traffic and bikes hopefully.

what time? I say let's meet at the Marina Safeway parking lot at 9am. That gives us say 4 hours? Hell i'll do 8:30 meet up so we're on the road by 9.

What say you all - we should start a new thread and post the times/meet.

If any of you have a better place to meet in SF - i'm all ears.
