Cruise to the Richard Nixon library and birthplace
 
Saturday February 17th we made a trip to the Richard M. Nixon library and birthplace in Yorba Linda California. It's the place to learn about the life and legacy of U.S. President Richard Nixon. The house he was born in is right where it's always been and they built the library and museum around it. 
The place is very nice with something to see and learn around every corner and there are lots of corners.
After seeing the museum and the house Nixon was born in we went to Polly's Pies in Yorba Linda for a terrific lunch.

Orange County Canyons Cruise 

Saturday January 13th we took another ride throught the beautiful Orange County Canyons led by member Mike Dahlberg. Metters who came out to play were our fearless leader Ronnie Bauman and his date Mona, Mike & Kim Dahlberg, Marcia Jones, Chris Di Tommaso, Ken Conner and Tony Bilotti. It was a nice clear and sunny day and the scenery couldn't be beat! Unfortunately Ken had some trouble with his Met halfway throught the cruise and had to be towed home. He got some great pictures he went out of his way to get before he had to drop out, thanx Ken!
The cruise consisted of a trip through Santiago, Silverado, Modjeska and Trabuco canyons ending up at the Rose Canyon Cantina for lunch.
