"Lost in Placerville Again"

October 23-25

Announcing a drive through the historic gold country on October 23-25, 2020. JAG Past President Richard Halk has led this drive several times over the years and it was great fun. The countryside is changing though, and we may lose some of these little known but great driving byroads and bridges.  2020 may be the last time we have an opportunity to do this particular drive as a group! 

During this three-day event, we will keep to social distancing guidelines, and masks are required. 

This 3-day event will begin on Friday evening the 23rd. Members will be arriving at the Hampton Inn in Folsom (Special Rate) and then drive to Shingle Springs for an informal dinner at CT European Restaurant that evening. They are providing us with a special menu just for us!  On Saturday morning, May 24th the group will convene at the historic B-O-B Ranch (Richard Halk’s Place!) in Placerville for pastries and coffee.  Richard will then lead the group on 70 miles of crooked back roads and 8 historic bridges. Our lunch stop is at Frank’s Diner in Mosquito, where you can purchase your choice for lunch. You are encouraged to check out the menu below and Pre-Order Lunch. 


At the conclusion of the drive we will meet at our favorite Mexican restaurant, Los Pinos in Cameron Park for dinner. Where we will recount the number of bridge trolls we encountered and our fond fair wells. Members have a choice: You can decide whether to spend the night and return home on Sunday, or head back home after the drive or after dinner.
