The 10th annual Mt St Helens cruise Mopars on the Mountain will be August 6th, 2016

NEWSFLASH:

DATE HAS BEEN CHANGED to AUGUST 27th!! Please update your status on the Facebook event page. Next year it will be August 5th.

Oh yes! More info added as time gets closer...........we had ONLY 130 cars in 2015, lets top 200! Last I checked the FB event page, 180 people have said they are going, with 140 more interested. WOW!

Mark your calendars, RWL11 Events and PDX Mopar Muscle car club will be hosting the 2016 Edition of Mopars on the Mountain. Lets see if we can beat the 130 car total from 2015. I am sure we will, so far I have about 180 signed up on the Facebook page! https://www.facebook.com/events/883514345075140/



This is the annual cruise of Mopars up Mt St Helens. Open to all Modern and Classic Mopars. Hosted this year by RWL11 Events.
- 10:00am: Meet at the overflow parking lot for the Shell Gas station just off Exit 49 of I-5 (near Castlerock, WA)
- 10:30am: Roll out as a convoy for the fantastic drive through the twists and turns up Hwy 504 nonstop to the top. The time for "spirited driving" will be on your return trip.
- 11:30am: (ish) Arrive at Johnston Ridge. Stay as long as you wish here then drive solo or in groups back down after lunch.
- 12:00/1pm: The Johnston Ridge parking lot WILL be the official lunch spot! There is a Subway directly across the street, to the north, that will have their full menu available! They have been notified there may be extra business at 10 am for them. Or, bring a lunch and some chairs and small tables for the luncheon in the lot.
** Beware while speeding, ya never know where Police/Hwy Patrol/Park Patrols will be lurking.
** Last year, there was a lot of bicyclists on the road so be careful.
** Walkie Talkies are set to Channel 3.33 (Actual Frequency is 462.61250 / Sub Audio C-210.7). Cell phone reception is poor/non existent up top.
** While at the top, parking is free, entrance to the Visitor Center is $8 per adult. Fantastic views of Mt St Helens here.
** Bring water and food; there is food available at the Visitors Centers but it's not for everyone. Some folks buy their munchies at the Shell station/Quickie Mart prior to rolling out.
** If you want to try some hiking, bring appropriate attire and let someone know where you're going
Convoys from the north/south are typically coordinated here.
Spread the word and invite those I missed . And no need to register or anything we'll just see you there!

Yeh... but now there's a lot of us that are backing out. Washington DOT decided to start a two week chip seal project during the time of the run.
You'll see more info on Facebook "Mopar on the Mountain". The club I run with are still going to meet, but will cruise elsewhere. The section that is being spread with fresh oil and gravel is 34 miles long .... not worth the damage. See ya next year!:thumbsup:

I talked with 2 different people who did the drive last weekend: the road is fine, just stay in your lane! WDOT was done last week, now they are just striping and adding some signage. A Corvette group made the trek last weekend, too. If they can handle it, so can we!
176 cars signed up on the FB event page. Not bad! Weather is supposed to be 80 and sunny. Awesome!
