Yeah, it's truly awesome. And it's probably the thing I will miss the most when I leave this area.

Some more good examples of the local terrain:

http://maps.google.com/?ie=UTF8&ll=3...39997&t=h&z=15
http://maps.google.com/maps?ie=UTF8&...39997&t=p&z=15

For that matter, pretty much the whole area between I-15 and Hwy 86 is like this. We all owe a huge debt to the brave civil engineer who felt these roads were worth paving.

That is insane. Is something like that what I will be greeted with when I head down to the gap this year?
From what I understand (having never driven it), the Gap is a much faster course. Most of the roads we run out here are slower but tighter and they're not really "major" roads- they're all paved, but many are not marked and they are very sparsely traveled. Palomar Mountain is kind of the exception- it's "the big one" in this neck of the woods, the one with name recognition where all the squids go to get killed. There's a fair amount of traffic and some police presence, but despite this you just can't not drive it.

Are you coming to [email protected]? The roads there are truly amazing. There even better when driving them in the middle of the night.

That is the plan. I am sure there will be a thread here as we get closer to the date, so we can all meet up there.
