    So who\'s going to Blazer Fest from So Cal?

    Well, it's getting close. Only 2 weeks away and we need to start to get this together. Sooooooo who wants to caravan to Hollister from So Cal on Friday the 13th? I was planning an early departure time of say 6 or 7 am. I would like to beat the LA traffic. Just list your name and your location and also any suggestions on a meeting place.
    BTW I was thinking of maybe taking the coastal route(hwy 101) On the way back and stopping by Pismo Dunes for a day. Hey, if we are going to drive that far might as well take advantage of it.[​IMG] So if anyone else would like to go let me know.

    Re: So who\'s going to Blazer Fest from So Cal?

    You were thinking of leaving that late. LOL.
    So were you thinking of going up the I5? I live in La Mirada (smack dab in the center of the 5, 91, 57, 605, 105, 60, etc...) so just about any place would be cool for me.
    I can get off mon. as well so I was planning on staying later, but Pismo sounds cool too.
    I have 2 Motorola FRS radios. Does any body else have any (sorry no CB yet)?

    Re: So who\'s going to Blazer Fest from So Cal?

    Well I'm open for an earlier departure time. No problem for me. I was planning on going up the 405 to the 5, So I was thinking of meeting somewhere after the 405 and 5 meet. That way no one goes out of their way. There is an exit before Magic Mountain That has a little of evrything. Food, stores, gas and other stuff. I don't remember the name but I'll be going to Bakersfield on July 4th so I'll check the name and a good place to meet. Any other suggestions on a place to meet le me know before the 4th and I can check them out.

    Re: So who\'s going to Blazer Fest from So Cal?

    If i can A) locate the horrible noise in my tranfercase and its not too serious, and B) i can fix that tiny littel crack behind my steering box, and C) i can fix my coolant leak, and D) i don't find anything else wrong, then i'm there, although i have to work on Fri morn, no way out of it, so i'd probably be leaving here around noon, and getting up there 5-6ish. Keep your fingers crossed for me.

    The destination is Hollister Hills! It's about a 6 hour drive from So Cal. We are planning on going up on Friday night and coming back on Monday night. It's were Blazer Fest is being held this year.

    Re: So who\'s going to Blazer Fest from So Cal?

    I'm thinking of meeting at the Lyons exit just after the 5 and 405 merge. It's actually about 5 miles after that. As far as the city were the 152 and 5 meet, I'm not sure. I think it's only about an hour away from Hollister. That's why I suggested leaving at 3 am[​IMG]. Burt4x4 is meeting a couple of others there so I thought we could too. At least we could have a caravan going from there SINCE NO ONE ELSE WANTS TO GO FROM HERE! Anyways, let me know.

    Hey are we still going to try to make it to PISMO?

    Re: So who\'s going to Blazer Fest from So Cal?

    Hey maybe the noise in your transfer case is just to much binding in the driveshaft. Isn't that what you asked on another post?[​IMG] Have the crack welded this week, put some of that radiator STOP LEAK stuff in it and your on your way. Maybe you can get Monday off and you can go to Pismo with us too.

    Re: So who\'s going to Blazer Fest from So Cal?

    it acctually makes the noise in two wheel, i think its justa bearing, i'll rip into it on fri, i just hate 30 w running down my arm, the crack shouldn't be such a prob, and i really just need a new lower rad hose, it just all the other little suprises im scared of. I think i'll be able to go, and i may just be "sick" on that mon. Pismo was a blast teh last time i was there, buried to the rails, i'm still finding sand under my truck, and that was several years ago.

    Re: So who\'s going to Blazer Fest from So Cal?

    Sounds good man. Don't worry about all the little things, Worry about the BIG things. J/K Anyways hope you can make it. Your in the San Fernando Valley right? So you'd take the 405 to the 5 right? Maybe we can meet on the 405 somewhere. oh wait you can't leave till after noon right?Well I guess we can meet at Hollister. We'll save you a spot. Later
