I'm driving out to El Mirage Friday night from Orange Country.  Just watch traffic on Google Maps or your preferred map/traffic cell phone app.  Friday's are really bad in So Cal.  Traffic won't lighten up until 7-8pm.  Just hang out a while.  And yes, it's going to be cold early Saturday morning.

Well we made it to El Mirage and we learned a lot about the area and the races. No. 1 Don't fly into LAX, flying out wasn't terrible though.
No. 2 It not only is pretty cold in the morning, it's pretty windy. No. 3 As far as I could tell there is no pit area per say, everybody just seems to park where they feel like it along the course No. 4 seems to be much more family oriented than Speedweek (nice to see all the kids) No. 5 everybody is just as nice and helpful as every other land speed event. No. 6 California has many different landscapes, deserts, mountains, oceans. Had a great time, Phil

Hey Phil... Louisiana has ocean... ok the gulf.... and it sounds like you have never been to Driskill Mountain, the highest mountain in Louisiana...
California is a great place to visit...  cheers

I had to google it because I had indeed not heard of Driskill Mountain. 535 FEET high, wow, now that there is a mountain!

Lived in Haughton for 4 years, there are a lot of great scooter roads in that area. 
It is 15.4 times higher than where you live... take O2 if you go visit  grin  cheers
