I need a headcount for Boccali's Restaurant AND Ojai Olive Oil Tour!


REMEMBER, THIS IS A PASSENGER FRIENDLY DRIVE!!!!
There will be areas where we'll be driving spiritly, BUT THIS IS NOT A PLACE OR TIME TO TEST YOUR NEW SUSPENSION OR YOUR SUPERCHARGER!!!

We'll have lunch at approx 1:30pm in Ojai. Then people can follow us to the Ojai Olive Grove, or drive back home. After the Ojai Olive tour, the late afternoon drive maybe the spectacular 33! So you can plan your day, leave the group early, or spend the entire day with us!:D
:shift:

If you have never done an olive oil tasting it is pretty interesting actually. I have been to 2 and it is amazing how deep and complex the tastes and smells can be depending on how they are made. If are into cooking or even just eating you won't be disappointed

Hal,
Sounds like fun, count me in, unless I am too depressed from have to cough up more money to pay the AMT to Uncle SAM.

What time are you planning on leaving, and what route are you going to take, in case I a, running late.

Huh?:huh: I try to please most of us in the group, balancing good twisty roads, a destination (Ojai Olive Oil tour) that is different and fun and a good lunch that allows us to socialize. After the tour, we'll drive one of the BEST Lotus roads in California....HWY 33! Maagjr, this one will really give a big grin on your face!:D:D:D

Actually, I love "LOOOK!!!! I'M DRIVING A LOTUS!!!" drives! That's where BILLIONS of HOT BABES jump in my Lotus! The streets are lined with admiring fans waving flags screaming in excitement. I had to learn to do a half-wave as the Pope does to not wear out your arm and wrist.

Doing these Lotus events are soooo lucrative for me. The pay is super high and by the end of the year, I'll have enough cash to buy a Lotus Club Racer! That's why the fee to join us is soooo high!!!! rotfl
