Default Downtown Sacramento/Nor Cal Meet and Cruise, November 23rd.

So, I have been wanting to do this for far too long, and now is the time to set it up. The plan is to meet in Downtown Sacramento. Hang out, eat, bull****. Then, basically cruise the downtown area. All Hondas and Acuras are welcome. All of the good meets in the area have died out (due to local PD), and it's time we started something new. The start/meet the parking lot next to the Sacramento Marina. The address is Marina View Drive, it's a stretch of road, with directional parking spaces all the way down on one side. So, when we leave for the cruise, Myself and the other starters will head out, then everyone can follow suit. The directional parking makes it so much easier. If everyone backs into a spot, it's as simple as waiting for the cars before you to just pull forward. It's a public spot, they don't close the gates (form what I've seen), and we'll be out before dark anyway. The route will be planned this week, so keep an eye open for updates. I'm open to ideas and questions. I will update as everything falls into place! If you are interested and want to be involved, feel free to drop a line here, or PM me. No matter what happens, myself and a few others will be showing up, so don't worry about that. Safe driving!

Where: Marina View Drive Sacramento, Ca Near the Sacramento Marina.

When: November 23rd, 2013 Meet starts at 4:00 P.M. Cruise starts at 7:00 P.M.

What: Meet and chill, then cruise.

Who: Hondas and Acuras.

The Route (as it stands): http://tinyurl.com/l7at7py (<--- It's planned on Google Maps, the link was just WAY too long to leave in full format.)
I'm looking for opinions on the route, I wanted to head up towards Placerville, so we could get some hill driving in. The total length is 47 miles. Considering it's the weekend before Thanksgiving, I figure the traffic on 50 is gonna suck, so I planned Green Valley instead. I've never planned a cruise before, so let me know if it's too long. We would be starting at the meet point, and ending at the In'N'Out in Placerville, for a bite to eat and to again, hang.

Drive Rules: Most importantly, BE SAFE! Know your limits, and don't try to show off or 'try something new'.

If a car in front of you puts their hazards on, it means there is a part of the road that you should slow down for (tight turn, rough road, gravel, etc.) The leaders will be initiating these lights, but it is the responsibility of everyone to ensure we have a safe and fun drive.
If the car in front of you puts on it's hazards, put on your own, so the car behind you knows as well.
If there is a car behind you that is driving faster than you, put on your passing side blinker when it is safe, so they know they can move up. NO tailgating.

After the main drive, and we arrive at In'N'Out, everyone is on their own. Feel free to hang out there and mingle, as we will too. On the descent, the leaders (Eddie[Red Prelude] and myself[Emerald Accord] will be taking a route that leads to Auburn via Salmon Falls Rd. and Route 49. This route is for the much more advanced drivers, and those who are interested may follow if they want. I do suggest taking it slow the first time, it's no joke up there.

One last time: I and those who are involved in the planning and leading of this meet and cruise are not to be held liable for anything that happens on the cruise. IF you get lost, Find the nearest freeway entrance and head up towards Placerville. You can meet us there.
