What can be better than CA Hwy 36 ??

September 11th, 2013

Well it turns out that one of the best things about CA Hwy 36 is that you will drive past the junction of South Fork Mountain Rd. A single sign identifies this junction and leads onto one of the best narrow ribbons of tarmac in Northern CA.

About 50 miles long, the road joins to Hwy 299 in the North and crosses through state forest and private lands as it winds along this one of many north/south ridgelines. At almost 6000 ft elevation, the view to either side is spectacular and when the horizon nears and the vegetation closes in, the forest, topography and geology vie for your attention.

There were various camps along the road, but seeing a 400lb brown Bear loping across the road indicates that you may be sharing your camp with an apex predator.




Further – later – cooler and brighter

0700 hrs in Red Bluff, perfect time to pull the left rear brake disc while searching for an annoying and increasing noise.
Found nothing and concluded it was neither in the E-brake components, or likely to fix itself. Therefore, press-on, whatever else?


Enjoy the moment…

Tracey enjoys a rare “told you so” moment after exploration in the RR wheel discovers nothing, LR exhibits a funny noise from the wheel bearing or e-brake…… As Tracey accurately detected from the drivers seat.
Never fail to proceed, Rally mantra, we will investigate further, later.


It’s over 100 in the Valley, as usual ……

It’s Summer, so it’s likely to be this hot. Driving classics from the 60′s requires the same comfort strategy as the 60′s.
Windows down, lots of hydration and occasional stops under shade trees.


It’s HOT it’s Saturday, late Summer Melee 2013

September 7th, 2013

A Glorious summer day on Northern CA time to hit the road with our purple 2013 Melee plates.
Great variety of cars as usual.
