I just got home from doing 4 runs threw the forks tonight. The road is pretty much unchanged except for the corkscrews which are repaved but still quite steep. Anyone down for a forks cruise this weekend or friday after the meet?

Who else is down? Also since I am planning the cruise/meet to performance world for saturday, how does either friday evening or sunday during the day sound? Friday could be meet at KK in sauga at around 6-7pm do a nice cruise have some fun then hit up Paloma for the meet there. Sunday we could meet at KK in sauga at around 11am, cruise and then hit up turtle jacks for some eats on the way back.

I'm good for Sunday morning - Fridays might not be so good as most people have plans. Besides, apart from the Church goers, what else are you going to do on a Sunday morning?

Ok here is the plan meet at 11am sharp at KK in sauga, we will wait untill 11:45 at the latest if those who are on the list below are not there. My cell is 647-234-5261 please call me if you are going to be there late but are still comming. Once 11:45am hits, we will leave KK and head for the forks. We will make a stop off at this Sunoco:

If that image is too small the location is on HWY 10 (Hurontario) between Bovaird and Queen Street. I believe it is on the LEFT HAND SIDE.

And wait for 15 minutes if at that time no one has called then we will roll out for the forks. Once there will will do as many runs as people want, if at anytime you want to meetup with us there please give the cell number above a call and let me know you are comming. At that time I will let you know where we are and im guessing we can meet you at the small town at the forks (the one at the 3 way stop). After our runs we will head back down HWY 10 and hit up Turtle Jack's for wings etc. and then head our seperate ways. This cruise is open to anyone, the more the marrier. Please add yourself to the list ONLY if you ARE going to make it (even if you will meet us at either of the waypoints) If you are unsure or are a 50/50 please make a post saying so but please don't put yourself on the list as I will go by it for the most part.

that said please copy and paste this list adding yourself:

There is a much more interesting drive up to the Forks. Everyone have fuel BEFORE you arrive.

No that is a cap from my PC at work it's running Win 2000 Pro on a workstation that is connected to a large network based in the states.

I might be going late in the afternoon with a few of my friends, so if you see a Blue BMW, a white S2000, and a Lexus IS250 cruising together, flash your HBs at us.

Just go up Hwy 10, it's on the left once you get into Caledon, on the way up a hill (very descriptive eh?!) ... pretty sure it's marked with signage. ... I won't be there, but have fun, nice road.

I say we organize a cruise to Deal's Gap NC sometime :) ... 17 hour drive, but worth every second. *rockout*

The forks are right before Devil's Pulpit, on the opposite side of HWY 10.

Here's a map of where Forks of the Credit road is.

Might I suggest all of you stop off at Flapjacks. They are literally 2 minutes before the entrance of the Forks, by an abandoned gas station. They serve amazing breakfast, and huge pancakes.

Also, everyone who is planning on going, I have had friends who have rolled cars, and even died in the forks from being over-confident. One even lost his head. Be careful. Don't **** around, unless you know what you're doing.

^ Yup, it's a deathtrap if you don't know what you're doing. Which is why I'd suggest you drive through there normally the first time to see the roads and blind corners/elevation changes. Even still, I'd be wary of driving aggressivley through there with other drivers right on my tail. As they say, it's not always you that has to mess up..... others could put you in danger just as easily.

Hmm come to think of it I think I've been there! I was there early autumn for a barbeque at the provincial park, and I think we went down that road but at one point we had to take a detour cause it was closed off...

Hound

^^ yep sounds like it. The people who are interested in the performance world meet seem to want to do it sunday as there would be a better turn out then, sunday by the looks of the forcast looks like it will be nice out, but saturday says it's going to rain. It's up to you and me really dbworld, as we are the only two who are really down. Might I suggest that we do this either sunday evening, or move it till next weekend when things are a little bit better, as the weather is just starting to warm up now. Let me know guys.

Regardless if we go to performance world sunday Im gonna go there after as it is sorta on the way home from me. So if anyone wants to do a meet and cruise there at around 4pm let me know. By then too any rain or melted snow should be outta there. If the performance world meet goes ahead with saturday then disregard this post and

MEET THERE AS PLANNED SUNDAY MORNING.

THANKS

Damn straight, who needs howard hussain anyways :D do you even GET AM or any kind of radio in the XL Sport? :P Or do you have to hold a clothes hanger out your window (if it opens) while you drive along, that clothes hanger is attached by wire to the deck isn't it :P

Hound
03-08-2007, 12:38 PM
OK LETS DO THIS SUNDAY EVENING, meet at KK in sauga at around 5pm cruise to the forks. After being there we can hit up Turtle Jacks for some eats if people would like to. Hopefully those who are comming to performance world will come as well.

Umm, where to start. The van only gets AM/FM, the CD player part doesn't work, the windows don't go down, the coathanger is being used to hold the exhaust on, it's an all around POS. And yet I love it. It will make me appreciate my car more when I get it on the road :D
