I wont be making the trip to Whistler this year, however I will meet up with the group in Lynnwood, WA for the ride up to Ferndale.

So add one more Cobra to the list for at least part of the trip :)

Plus, Rick Miller up in Ferndale will most likely join us at the Pilot station in his Cobra (he lives in Ferndale) so we could have quite a group at the gas station!

I have been a member of this group for a couple months now, but became an official NW Club Cobra family member this weekend: bought a beautiful ERA Cobra this last Friday from a gentlemen I met through this forum. Purchase has been in the works for a few months now, couldn't be happier - and I think the seller is happy that his Cobra went to a good home.

I unfortunately can't make the trip to Whistler; however, I can potentially make the trip from Lynnwood up to Ferndale. Would love to see the other cars, and meet some fellow NW Cobra owners. May I ask for some details on the Lynnwood, WA meeting place and time - and location in Ferndale everyone is headed to? I'll see if I can make it.

Congrats Brian on the new baby!

Jake 02-24-2017 06:46 AM

That's awesome on the new car Brian! I will get times and locations listed here in the coming weeks. Tentative will be Lakewood start, Lynnewood, then Ferndale Pilot. Then proceed to Whistler.

I have updated the original post on page one of this thread with the start time of 8:30 am from the Lakewood park and ride. Then meeting at the McDonald's exit 181 from North I-5, Then Ferndale Pilot station exit 262 for fuel and rehab. Then north to Whistler with a possible bathroom stop in Squamish BC.

I too am hoping to just join in the drive from Lynnwood up to Ferndale too.

Hey Jake:
Thanks for taking the lead on this again.
We'll just be back from a month in France thus travel budget is shot, so we won't be overnighting.
But, as always, looking forward to the drive up and seeing the gang.

Jake 03-01-2017 06:31 PM

It is my pleasure. Looking forward to catching up.

David and Don & Bev from Edmonton Alberta will be joining the group as well. Looking forward to meeting up with our Canadian Brothers and Sisters.


BruceSnyder 04-09-2017 04:26 PM

Stephen and Kelly from Portland OR will be joining the group in their Superformance Daytona coupe.

That may be a possibility. I will call Scott M. He booked two rooms and only needs one. You may luck out 😉.

We tried this the last time and it didn't work out very well. We could not find the meet location. Tough to keep an exact time schedule when traveling with such a large group. I can post when we are clear the border crossing and you guys could time it from there? I am open to other thoughts.


ReMorton 06-09-2017 09:57 AM

I'd like to propose for consideration a small tweak in the route to the border from the Pilot station in Ferndale. Last time it was up I-5 to the truck crossing, then through traffic to Hwy 1.
Instead of getting back on I-5, we would turn left out of the lot onto Main St. Head due east about 3-4 miles and follow the road to 'Guide Meridian' Route 539. Turn left on Guide Meridian and Head north through Lynden to the Lynden/Aldergrove border crossing. Take 13 north to the TransCanada Hwy 1. There's only two signals from the Pilot station to the border.
-Its a shorter run from the US border to Canada Hwy 1 with only two signals, so it will be easier to keep the group bunched together, less traffic and less time to Hwy 1;
- its rural through berry farms from the Pilot station to the border, usually less traffic
- Lynden/Aldergrove has less cars going through it and a lot of parking area to collect the cars
- more scenic than up I-5 to the truck crossing.
- I think it will take less time to get to Hwy 1 and might shorten the overall drive time.
I go this way to BC all the time. Might be worth considering.

I'm good with that Bob.

Thanks, Jake
