    September 14th - 11th Annual Lake Tahoe Drive

    It is that time of year again for our Lake Tahoe drive. Our Lake Tahoe drive is one of the best drives we offer during the year, as it is the most "couple" friendly drive. This year we are changing things up a bit by adding some fun optional decals to the mix. The decals are of the image below, and are from the same type of decals we used for our Yellowstone and Grand Tetons road trip.

    They DO NOT HARM you paint! If you wish to purchase a set of these re-usable decals as a moment of the drive, they can be ordered at our store: PURCHASE YOUR TAHOE DECALS HERE:
    Cost for the two decals is $20

    Time: 8:00am – 8:30am (Leaving on the 30)
    Address: Starbucks, 4311 Town Center Boulevard, El Dorado Hills, CA 95762

    Lunch Stop:
    Time: ~12:30pm
    Address: Harveys Lake Tahoe, 15 U.S. 50, Stateline, NV 89449
    Parking: Back lot off Lake Parkway (first right off the parkway )

    What to BRING:
    Please remember your two way radio.

    For those who wish to make this an overnight adventure, we are staying at:

    The FULL day drive this year will cover 285 miles from start to finish. We will be exploring many of the great back roads around Tahoe, as well as stopping for a few photos along the route. If you wish to run the first leg to Tahoe, it will cover 162 miles of back roads.

    Just a end of the week bump. Here are some answers to to a few questions raised.

    1. NO - this is not a couples only drive. Any and all are welcome
    2. NO - you do not need to buy decals. They are optional as noted in the post
    3. There is no cost for the drive if you wish to attend

    If you are attending please reply to this thread or email me at norcal.drivers@gmail.com so I can let the lunch stop know roughly how many of us are coming.

    Hello mike,

    You just have to show up at the designated time of departure. If you wish to order the decals, the link will take you to the order page. They are optional. So far 10 of us will have them.

    I got an updated from the recommended hotel that they have only a few rooms left. For those who are considering staying overnight, here are two other choices where some of the group is staying.

    Green Lantern Motel
    Phone: (866) 456-6835

    Blue Lake Inn at Tahoe
    Phone: (530) 544-6459

    ** If you are considering ordering a set of decals, please order before 9/9 so I can have them made in time. Please make sure to include your top two number choices when you order**

    For those of you who are coming from the Bay Area. If you want a meet up point, you can use the following.

    Starbucks
    11861 San Pablo Avenue
    El Cerrito, CA 94530

    Suggested time:
    Meet - 6:30am (get coffee and wake up)
    Depart - 6:45am on the DOT.

    I have no clue how many are coming from the bay so might park some place that you can see each other near the coffee =)
