Exclamation Mountain Run!!! Prescott Valley, AZ ---> Jerome, AZ

Hey guys! I'm looking to set up a cruise/ mountain run for the early spring. If we get enough interest, I'll start to gather more details for the run as the final date set approaches...
Here's the run down. I have this nice set of twisties right in my back yard here in Prescott Valley, Arizona. It is Arizona highway 89-A that takes you from the edge of Prescott Valley on into the history laden town of Jerome, Arizona. It's a huge tourist destination, with lots of sights to see, shops, & restaurants that are all well worth the visit.
Here is a link for more information on the town of Jerome:

I've driven this stretch of road several times since I've lived here in Arizona and it's tons of fun. The views through the mountains & valleys are spectacular, so bring a friend to sit in the passengers seat to take lots of pics or video...if their stomach can bear it! Those who tag along on this trip will definitely be hanging on to the "oh $#1*" handle!!! The road up to Jerome can be both relaxing & exhilarating depending on what type of driving mood you are in that day.
Here's a short Youtube video of a Ferrari & Porsche playing cat & mouse on 89-A on the way up to Jerome...

So this is how it would play out...
-We pick out a nice sunny Saturday morning to leave from Prescott Valley, AZ for the Drive to Jerome.
-Choose a spot as a central meeting spot in the Prescott Valley, AZ prior to departure.
-Spend the lunch time hours taking in the sights, smells, & sounds of the old town of Jerome.
-then the rest of the afternoon can be spent either driving to our respective homes or you guys could stick around town so I can show you the town of Prescott & the infamous whiskey row...but that's a whole other discussion!!!
Let me know what you guys think!!!
TENTATIVE DATE SET:
APRIL 10TH, 2010(Saturday)
This is the weekend following Easter Sunday...let me know what you guys think!!!
