Recap - Nevada City Overnight Run - June 11th and 12th 2022

 




Your Hosts: Simon and Nikki Tildesley

A small but perfectly formed group of us met in Fairfield on a beautiful warm sunny morning
The mix of cars was good - from earlier gen 1's all the way to the latest gen 3's.

As I was hosting this run on behalf of Paige Lane, it was going to be interesting, as I hadn't had any opportunity to do a pre-run. With that in mind, we set off on our journey with directions in hand and in my phone on roads I had never driven before. Due the smaller sized group on this occasion, it was easier to keep us all together.

The first section of four sections of the run took us via the back roads from Solano college to Woodland
On arrival in Woodland, we were met by two more members who live further north to bring the total number of cars to 12. 

We stayed in Woodland to enjoy some lunch before setting off on leg number two driving from Woodland to Lincoln.

After another short break - we started leg number 3 leading us to a parking lot of a Dollar General store (I didn't plan the route - lol) We actually used this short break to give us chance to take a group photo with all the cars. 

Our last and final leg took us on more back roads to Nevada City. Upon arrival - the group split up to do their own things. Some people staying overnight - others like me heading home again.

Overall the run was fun and I only got the group lost once. For those of you that know me - this is a normal event!

My thanks to Paige for the very precise directions ensuring the group had some fun driving.
