Sorry if this is a dumb question, but would other FF models be at this event? I'm considering getting an 818 but I'd really like to see / ride in one first.

And yes, I have seen FF cobras before, and I already know they're cool. :)

It's not generally a free for all. Different areas will meet up and caravan to a major spot say somewhere in Livermore. The details will get posted on the Bacc site before the run.
Chris there is generally a SJ group that comes up. Reno, Mike Terrie, Al Weendoggy etc.
Not sure who all coming from there yet but keep looking for details.

There are no finished 818's out here yet so I'm sure there will be none this year but all are welcome on these trips.

Sorry guys,

I just reviewed this years website regarding Snakes and to answer the question regarding " itinerary" here are a bit more detail:

With generally about 50 or so cars attending Snakes to the Lake coming from different areas, We (I) create groups based on where folks are located. Such as South Bay, North Bay, East Bay, Central Coast, Northern CA etc. Each group is told who is in their group ( email list) and they decide on a "local" meeting location for themselves and then caravan to the "main" Snakes start location or meet up with the main body of cars along the route whichever works for them (the route using Google Maps is sent to everyone gets before Snakes starts).

The drive is broken into two parts, the morning ends at a location generally halfway to the lake for lunch ( note: we plan out gas/rest stops along the way so no on leg is generally more that an hour or so cause NOBODY LIKES A GRUMPY CO-PILOT). After lunch, most of the cars have met up with the group and we continue to "snake" our way to the lake.

We try to avoid the main highways (50 & 80) if we can.

So hope this help folks who registered this year or in the future.

see ya, Mike "monster"

Trip report

Weather Great- 80's through the weekend

about 40-45 cars

Drive up- Nice drive along backroads and delta (mostly newly paved) to Rancho Cordova for lunch.

Food Truck Friday Lunch stop was a big hit with 9 great gourmet food trucks, tables shade & music https://www.facebook.com/SactoMoFo

Friday night get together food, drinks and great time to catch up with old friends, make some new friends and plan for Sat. drives.

Sat.- small groups went in all directions as they explored the area for the day. The back to the hotel for a cocktail or 2 or 3 then out on the town for dinner, gambling, shows or dancing.

Sunday came a bit to quick but it was time to say our farewells.

Keep checking for our information on the 20th annual Snakes to the lake celebration which is expected to be an event not to be missed
