Already registered. This will be my 2nd Parade and really enjoyed the 1st one.

I think Monterey is the perfect location for a Porsche Parade. Highway 1 to Carmel and Big Sur or Head North to Santa Cruz, Half Moon Bay or San Francisco/Bay Area.

I'm driving Sydney out (the CSS). Really looking forward to it. Should be tons of fun.

That will be a nice drive for you. One of the things I enjoyed most going to a Parade/Escape is getting there. We normally do a group drive.

We should see if we can do a 986 Forum lunch meet. We could drive on Highway 1 to Nepenthe Restaurant. Great drive and the Rest has great views.

Nepenthe is about 25 miles south of Carmel. If you're coming from O.C area your best route would be to take the 101 and take Route 46 West to Highway 1 towards Cambria.
Nepenthe Restaurant, Big Sur, California

Another must see is Rocky Point Rest. They are about 10 miles south of Carmel.

Unfortunately I will have no time this year for such a long drive. It is a 4-day drive for us, like the one I did when I bought the car back in 2010 (drove from Santa Monica, CA to Ottawa, Canada). Hell of a trip. Really amazing drive. Next PCA one was also announced (the location) so definitely going to the 2015 one.

I'd like to see whether some of the Boxster owners would like to gather for lunch or other during Porsche Parade.

Our club stayed up there last year and found a good meeting place with good parkings.
The Kula Ranch Restraurant 3295 Dunes Road, Marina, CA 93933 is located on the ocean side of 101 in an area noted for it's sand dunes. Marina is a 10 min drive from Monterey. It's still early, I know; just wanted to throw that out

I'm game and I had the same idea. Let's keep this going untill then and we should go ahead and pick a meeting spot. My schedule for parade week is open since I've done those tours so many times locally.

Good to hear interest; I'll post a separate "Get Together" thread as we get closer to to Parade.

Looks like this is your first post? Welcome to the forum.

Registration for the Parade is now over 1100. This is probably the record to date.

Cool, come by and say Hello.
I am in a grey 2009 Carrera 4S with number 179
I should be in one of the garages

Have you driven Laguna-Seca before?

Cheers
