I will try to meet up either in Yuma or in El Centro if I dont spend night in Yuma after working track Saturday night. Need to go to Yuma anyway Sunday to meet with family. Would enjoy meeting Scott and Willie again but MIZER will have to stay home as she isnt behaving well lately so latest comfort queen will have to make trip (wifes RAV4 hybrid), specially since need to take wife.

That will be great. It has been a long long time since we got together.

Our group from the LA/IE area is to meet at 4555 Jurupa, Ontario
It's a Carl's Jr., near the intersection of the 10 & 15.
I will be there about 6:30 so I can have coffee and possibly a breakfast item. We should leave there at 7:00. We will head out the 10 toward Palm Springs, then south out near the Salton Sea and meet Willie and the San Diego guy's in El Centro, about 10:00 and then on to Yuma.

So far our group is:

Me
Devin55-Don
Andy
Dan
Michael
Doug- is a maybe.

From Escondido & San Diego:

Ron
Clint
Willie

Ron & Clint intend on meeting Willie at the Golden Acorn.

Also, I've been in touch with Tom, Littlecars from CO, and he will be in AZ and intends to meet us as well.

If anyone else can make it or meet us along the way, it would be great to have you join one of the caravans.

Checked with Steve, unfortunately he will not be able to make it. Sounds like I'll be heading to Yuma on my own. See you guys there!

Just got back from Yuma where I had lunch and a Yuma Prison tour with 9 fellow Insighters Had a very good time. A few new faces, and the rest were the old reliable ones.

The caravan from Campo was 3 Insights, and the caravan from LA was 5, so we had a 8 car caravan to Yuma.

Thanks Mark for putting this on, and Tom also thanks, coming from Co. Your Geo looks real good. There were a total of 10 INSIGHTERS.

Thanks guys for showing up, the weather was a "little" warm, 125F in the car when we left for the return trip.

I used the AC from Yuma to the "Mountain Springs Grade" so my mpg did suffer, but at least i could breath.
Maybe Andy will post pics taken.
Till the next one guys, again thanks.

Willie

I had an awesome time, the first for me doing the caravan thing. Since we see so few of our cars on the road, having 8 or 10 of use driving together was a blast. I only knew 2 of the others attending prior, so I made several new friends. Looking forward to doing it again!

Great time seeing everyone there, of course we had a record high day in Yuma at 98F... go figure? On the way there I went 200 miles at 80-85 MPH and got 53 MPG, this was half way with no AC and last half with AC on fan speed 1. On the way back another 200 miles which is a slight up hill grade back to Phoenix running again 80-85 MPH and AC on fan speed 2 got 46 MPG.

This was with no IMA, I bypassed the battery when I got the 1449 code back in Aug last year. I was by no means even attempting to hypermile but was instead peddle down and get there and back.

Had a great time. 530 miles, 62.9mpg. I was the lead car much of the time and used my cruise control for about half the trip set between 70-75 mph.
