Our first 86DRIVE of the summer season is in the books, and it was a great day. About 11 of us met up at the starting point in Livermore and cruised on over on Mines Rd to the newly remodeled Junction Bar & Grill. For most of us it was the first time there in a while and we’re glad to see it open again and still serving great food. Definitely recommend visiting them on a weekend and enjoying a nice meal or drink out on their front yard area (nicely equipped with umbrellas for shade now) or in their new dining room! After a relaxing lunch we hit the road again, going up and over Mt. Hamilton to San Jose. It had also been a while since I had driven this stretch of road, and while it was still pretty gravelly, it wasn’t as bad as before and I am hopeful that more summer traffic will eventually clear the road some more. We stopped at the Lick Observatory for a break and some photos, and then continued our way down and back into civilization. Hope everyone who came had a fun drive, we handed out 86DRIVE cards to everyone and they all earned their first 86DRIVE STAR of the season, good for raffle tickets at the End of Summer meet that we will be holding at, well, the end of summer! Be sure to come out and join us this summer for some of these 86DRIVES, we look forward to driving with you.
