2m Autowerks Xmas Toy Drive, Julian

 

This last Saturday (12/17/16) consisted of an adventurous Christmas donation event for Rady’s Children’s Hospital hosted by 2m Autowerks. Many toys were donated at 2m; the initial meetup located off of Commerce Avenue. As steaming coffee was provided along with sweet frosted donuts from Dunkin’s, people gathered in the small lot chattering excitedly about BMW’s and their plans for theirs. It was soon time to Caravan to Julian. Engines roared to life as people hastily rushed to the front of the car line. Having brought the only JDM vehicle (my partner in crime), the 2-4-oh, I made sure to stay towards the rear. We were off! BMW’s blazed through the streets, a few other makes and models coursed through such as a Mustang, Camaro and even a smart car… Here’s a small view of the event through my eyes…

After taking a pause at Dudley’s Bakery where more photography took place and the meeting of new people, the drive ensued through Julian and around Lake Cuyamaca. Spits of ice and snow dotted the brown grasses and rocky cliff sides along the roads as flocks of scavenging turkeys scurried for cover. Luckily it was my slow car that encountered a pair of deer crossing the road as I hurried to catch up with the line of cars who had sped through the same large turn just moments before. The drive ended back in San Diego at Ballast Point Brewery off of Old Grove Road. Once there, a much needed Wahoo White with a Mai Tai shot was happily enjoyed. ‘Twas a successful toy drive with 2m and the chill bimmer crowd this Christmas season! How did you donate this year?
