Sacramento River Cats Run - June 5, 2016

Thanks to all of you who came out to the Sacramento River Cats game this past Saturday.  We raised $157.00 in support of Breast Cancer Awareness in honor of Carolyn Mifsud.

Our trip started at K-Mart on E. 18th in Antioch.  From there we crossed the San Joaquin River on CA-160 heading north.

Next, we crossed the Sacramento River on to Route 12 towards Rio Vista, California, before making a quick right turn on to CA-84.

Soon we had a little fun taking a ferry crossing.  Who knew there were car ferries in our area.  Here we are lined up waiting for the next trip across the river.

Here's most of us on the REAL McCoy II Ferry. 

According to CalTrans, The Real McCoy II is 88-feet long by 38-feet wide. It is powered by a hydraulic propulsion system, with 360 degree propellers for steering. The hull’s capacity is 80,000 pounds, and can carry up to eight vehicles.

Once we got back on the road, after waiting for the last two cars to cross on the ferry, we continued north on US-84. I'm not sure for how long, but we drove along the road as it runs on top the levy with acres and acres of vineyards off in the distance.

Here's the gang all gathered for the excellent hot dogs BBQ'd by Scott Hunter with assistance from Michael Toibin.

Our next run takes us to Sacramento again on Sunday, June 26th as we drop off cars at Niello MINI for shipment to Atlanta for the start of MINI Takes the States 2016.  See the calendar for more information.  We're collecting food for Feeding America that we will drop-off to the Food Bank of Contra Costa & Solano
