Things recommended:

Two-ways radio, set @ channel 7, sub-channel 21
Sunblock lotion, Partly sunny @ low 80's, High UV index!!
Hat and sunglasses, very useful during the cherries picking.
Water bottles
Some cash, they don't take charge or check at the orchard, and as well as for the lunch.
Also, tires pressure and all fluids.

Make sure to have some light breakfast before the run to avoid any motion sickness, especially for your co-pilot and the passengers. Trust me on this one.

The route is not very long, total of only ~65 miles. BUT, it will winding left, right, up, down through the mountains. Kind of very very twisty in some parts.
There are some with extreme up-slope and/or down-slope. For some may feel this very challenging.

The run is planned to finish within ~2 1/2 hours with one 20 minutes break in between.
We should be arriving Cozy's by noon, after we spend some times for the delicious brunch, we will caravan out to Prior's orchard for cherries picking.
