Based on the most popular spots talked about in the "favorite place to drive in the bay" we're going to be setting up a cruise in the east bay hills.

We've got plenty of time to plan all the details, but in general we'll be meeting up in Berkeley at noon, cruising up Skyline and around the Grizzly Peak area. We will make an exact map of the route a week or two in advance. Ending up somewhere to get good food for those who want to stick around and eat.

For now, let's just start signing up to see how many people can make it! Copy/paste the most recent list and add yourself, i'll keep this one updated every now and then.

UPDATE: Official Google Route Map (now including destination of Barney's on Piedmont)

We will be meeting @ the Xtra Oil / Chevron gas station on The Alameda in Berkeley at noon (Address: 1201 The Alameda, Berkeley CA -- point A on the Google Map above).

We can talk cars there for a short while, and take a few minutes to fill up on gas/snacks etc, and to make sure there are no stragglers. We will be leaving the gas station at 12:15 on the dot (unless you call me and say you're < 5 minutes away and aren't lying).

We'll be taking some super narrow local roads (SLOWLY and carefully!) up past Michigan Park and to the start of Grizzly Peak.

From there we'll have some nice cruising, and will probably stop for a photo opp or two.

Eventually (probably around 2pm) we'll end up by Lake Merritt in Oakland after a short hop on 580 just for a couple exits. Lots of great food there and parking isn't too hard... we can decide on which specific place day-of for people who want to stick around and eat :)
