January 8, 10 am - 1 pm

Mark Schneider is still planning on hosting a Tech Session at his place on January 15th from 11am to 1pm.  The Tech Session is covering ignition points and distributor setup for Austin Healey.

 

The tour initiated from a large shopping center parking lot where we could gather safely  and organize the drive (Figures 1 & 2 ). A driver’s meeting was held, a map and list of turn points were handed out.  Since this was the first tour in a long time and with several new club members we also had a review of Touring Etiquette 101, eg., show up with full fuel tanks, each driver is responsible for the car behind, if traffic lights split up the tour group the leader will slow, may pull over and wait for rejoining, drivers of separated cars will speed up to rejoin, etc.  The day of our tour these reminders helped. We made a very nice tour alternating through several open fields and forests with mottled sunlight and complete overhead tree canopies.  After arriving on the north side we drove a short distance of freeway to Newberry Road, a steep undulating paved road back up and over the west hills terminating the tour loop at a popular road house, the Rock Creek Tavern (Figures 3 & 4). We all had a very good time.  One of the best parts of club road trips and tours is the camaraderie, storytelling, car talk, technical discussions that occur over a meal and beverages.  I believe club activities like the Logie Trail tour are a critical component of successful car clubs.
