I think it's funny that so far (aside from Louise's cooper...don't know the color yet) it looks like we're going to have a DS/W & a DS/B, and a EB/W & a EB/B. Ha!

Hate to spoil your pattern, but would you mind a CB Mc form Sea? - and which side of the bridge would you meet on?

Welcome to the group Louise! Glad you're here.

I may have another potential all Black Cooper joining us.
Hope to be driving next time!

I would love it if we ended our run for a late lunch early dinner kinda thingy any where from 1:00 to 4:00. But not to be a bore or curtail any of the festivities, I could make a 5:00 but would have to leave by 6:00 due to another obligation.

This is really sounding fun and exciting Ryan! Thank you for all your energy and time you are putting into this. I will call my friend again today and see about those radio's.

Noted, Tom. I was thinking about a 3ish meet time myself, which would work in nicely with your time scenario. Will keep you posted. Thanks for the input.

AWESOME! Yes, we really need those. Doesn't sound like anyone else has CB, or I'd suggest that route. Do they work on a standard frequency (ala CB), or is it specific to Motorola or something?

I'll be there! I think my wife and kids will follow me to Who-Song & Larry's where I'll drop my car off, then they will drive me to St. John's Bridge and I can get a ride with someone? Ryan? Anyone?


I look forward to it!

Hey! Nice official-looking "Bridge Run" graphic!
I hope you Van-Port Surffers don't mind that I mentioned this to another
Seattle-ite ... (don't know if they're coming or not, but I'll
be there).
Thanks again for all your efforts

Racegun still doesn't know if he can make it and I've let others know about the run but no confirmations. 8-ball..thanks for helping get the word out! See you there.

See you there 8Ball...and anyone else you can bring. The more the merrier as far as I'm concerned.

Woohoo!

Let me know what you find out about the walky-talkies, Tom. Oh, and do you want me to pick you up anywhere? I'll be coming over 26, to 405 to 30. So if you'd like to meet somewhere and avoid your wife driving you all over the place I'd be happy to nab you.

As that great sage, Promitheus once said: " Go ye forth and let not the rabble and slow traffic dissuade you in your appointed rounds, shift into 2nd gear and MOTOR ON!!!! Or something close to that.

Louise, you are in Vancouver, right?

Take I-5 South to I-405. This will take you over the Freemont Bridge (big white arch brige with two levels). Stay to the right as you go over the bridge. Take the Hwy 30 W to St. Helens exit. Continue to follow signs to St. Helens/Hwy 30 W. Once you come down off the bridge/I-405 you'll go thru a small underpass at which point you are on Hwy 30/St. Helens Rd. Continue North on this road until you are almost to the St. John's Bridge (only one you'll see other than a train tressel). The bridge looks like a Mini Golden Gate (same architect actually). As you approach the bridge you'll come to an traffic light intersection: St. Helens Rd & Front St. From St. Helens Rd you'd take a right onto Front St. It's very gritty/industrial. See the picture above for reference. We're meeting at 3pm on Saturday the 26th.

Please let me know if you have any other questions or if you need better instructions. Glad to hear you are coming.

Hi from Surrey, BC
Do any of you mind if I mention your event on the Vancouver New Mini Owners website? There is always a chance that one of us might be in the area on the right day and who would turn down an opportunity to drive around with a great bunch of cars?
