The Not The 49 Mile Drive

NT49MD-12— Not the 49 Mile Drive, Saturday 15 December 2012

Rally time in San Francisco!

Join BayArea 02 on December 15 as we rally around San Francisco in our annual Not the 49 Mile Drive. As before we will meet at Ocean Beach (across The Great Highway from Beach Chalet on the West end of Golden Gate Park; Fulton St. is the cross street and the entrance to the Ocean Beach parking lot) between 9 and 9:30 AM. Following our drivers (and navigator’s) meeting, we hope to have all cars away by 10:00 AM. After a couple of hours driving the major, minor and hidden roads of San Francisco we will meet again at a restaurant for lunch and to review the photos that each car has numbered in the order observed during the rally.

This year San Francisco native Beck Diefenbach is reviewing and exploring the roads that make San Francisco famous to include in the route, helping us find the hidden treasures and postcard views that make us glad we live in the Bay Area. We are also considering options for the lunch restaurant, since Red’s Java House yielded their pier parking to the America’s Cup adventure.

Join us for the fun “gimmick” rally, meet up with your friends, learn and enjoy some of San Francisco’s road history and share some of your BMW tales. Although you can drive solo, we recommend bringing a navigator (in Wells Fargo jargon, someone to ride “shotgun” although we do not expect any arrows flying through your car). During the rally your navigator can number the photos we provide in the order you see them on the route.

To see photos from some of the previous “NT49MD” rallys, look at [http:// www.bayarea02.com/events/12_03/12_03.html] and [http://www.bmw2002faq.com/ component/option,com_forum/Itemid,50/page,viewtopic/t,365262] (Tom Jones’ 2007 rally photos and discussion about last year’s NT49MD). Watch FAQ’s BayArea 02 Forum for the latest details [http://www.bmw2002faq.com/component/ option,com_forum/Itemid,50/page,viewforum/f,25/] but be sure to mark 15 December on your calendar for the NT49MD-12 rally!

The date is December 15, 2012. We’ll meet in San Francisco at the Ocean Beach parking lot opposite the Beach Chalet around 9:00 am and depart at 10:00.  The drive should take about two hours. Navigators are highly recommended.
