So exactly how many of you live, or have lived in Southern California?

For starters, I know myself, Superfly, and Tom In NO are SoCal Alumni. And that guy Mds00...something or other (sorry, I don't remember it) lives not far from me in Corona.

I currently live in Riverside. I also can claim La Palma, Chino, West Covina, and San Dimas as past hometowns as well.

Also, are any of you planning on attending the SoCal Airliner Expo in two weeks?

I'm planning on being there. Maybe we can all meet up, then go watch a few planes while downing a Double-Double....

Nah...maybe we'll 86 the In-N-Out. After all....EVERYBODY will likely want to go there.....most of them won't have cars though. At least we will. We can disappear somewhere into the vast LA metropolis away from the touristy spots and grab some local cuisine somewhere while having a beer and talking some things over, sort of like how me, KROC, Miroddie, and BigPhil did at JFK and LGA back in 2003.

So anyway, getting back on topic. This is where we can discuss anything SoCal related. After all, there is more to LA than LAX and Hollywierd......(I think).

How about that rain?

Ever ridden the Metrolink? I have...between Riverside and Covina via San Bernardino....it was an interesting ride.

Anyone have FASTRAK? I do, although I rarely use it. It is a handy thing to have whenever the need to drive into OC from here arises. That 91 is a clusterf**k pretty much around the clock.

When are they going to finish the damn 710 between East LA and Pasadena? It's been stalling for over 30 years now!

If you want the best, slimiest, greasiest, but tastiest fried chicken, go to Pioneer in Bell Gardens, right at the corner of Florence and Garfield.

Speaking of In-N-Out, I live right in the Double-Double Black Hole zone. There are three of them around here....one on Madison/91, further up in Riverside, another at Serfas Club and 91, in Corona, and one on Van Buren, over on the Mira Loma side of Riverside. All are about 6 miles away from me, and not very easy to get to with any degree of speed or ease, which means that I can't get In-N-Out and bring it back home to eat fresh. I have to eat it there.

Ain't that a bitch?

The city of San Dimas just isn't the same now that the big Levitz sign has been torn down. It was tall. It was in a state of disrepair. And the cheezy baby blue and pink neon....sheesh....talk about bad colors....

But you could see it coming over the hill from the 210/57/71/10 Interchange heading north, and it was the sign that you were coming home.

SPEAKING of which, what's the deal with renaming the stretch of 210 between the Interchange and the Glendora/San Dimas 210 junction the 57?

The 57 don't go through San Dimas! That's the Diamond Bar-Brea-Orange freeway!

The Arrow Highway exit in San Dimas is off the 210.

Even though all the signs have been changed, it will always to me, be the 210.

So how about that Ontario Mills and Victoria Gardens malls?

Mills is nice, but IMO, too big and overbuilt. Ever try and get in and out of there on the weekends? It's a lost cause......Milliken, Inland Empire Blvd, and 4th Street are pretty buch jammed solid. And that labarynthine layout.....yikes...don't go there unless you plan on spending at least an hour or 12 there. It will take you that long JUST to find the store you want and park.

And now what genius thought it would be a good idea to build an equally oversize mall only TWO freaking miles away? Foothill Blvd was already jammed up enough even when that spot was an open field.

You oughtta see it now!

Ok...enough of my ranting.

I live somewhere in SoCal, 2 miles south of the In'n'Out off of Serfas Club... I will be going out to visit Northrop-Grumman Wed. afternoon to look at 'something', rain should be gone by then. Will be seeing someone from the opposite gender tomorrow night in Loma Linda - a place that I often drive by but never stop. Maybe I can swing a stop at the SoCal show....

Lately my life has consisted of spending time at various facilities between Serfas Club and Weir/Yorba Linda Blvd. Just making a ton of noise amongst the Million dollar homes.....

HA, ain't gonna happen!
I've seen maps from the 1950s that has the dotted (proposed) 710 going through South Pasadena. A good friend of mine used to live in the destruction path. It's too much money in South Pasadena and the South end of Pasadena. That is some high real estate and would disturb there 'tranquil paradise'.

Look at how fast the Century freeway went up out to LAX cutting through South Central L.A.
Those homes were bought for about $115,000 a piece and they all moved out to Rialto (another dump).

After reading about those restaturants, I am now hungry.

That's right....we also have Clearmans North Woods Inn!!!!!!! Maybe we could go to the one in La Mirada. It's only about 30 min from LAX.

Or if you like pastrami piled 6 inches high served in a bun the size of a football, then may I recommend The Hat. Unfortunately there are none anywhere close to LAX. Probably the closest Hat to LAX would be the one in Monterrey Park, off the 60 and Atlantic.

There is also a great pastrami place near LAX. The name escapes me, but I believe it's right at Sepulveda and Washington in Culver City.

Superfly, whenever you decide to come down again, I'll take you to those recording stores in West Hollywood.

What's the best route to drive from LAX to Glendora, CA? What's the approx. time to destination and how is traffic on a sunday morning/early afternoon?

BTW, I'm in San Diego for about 2 months in a year in Pacific Beach in the summer. Does this make me a SoCal'er? haha.

I sneak a trip down to LA some time in the spring. When I say sneak, I mean a trip the family doesn't know about because then they'll try to occupy my time and give me guilt trips if I don't hang out with them. Considering I don't get much time off of work, I cant spend too much time down there and you know first hand how bad traffic can be down there. There's no way I can do Riverside, Irvine, Woodland Hills, Northridge, Baldwin Hills, Rancho Cungamonga(sp) and Glendora all in 3 or 4 days.
My next trip down there will be a friend's only trip.

LAX-Glendora:

I-105 East
I-605-north
I-210 east.

Glendora Exits: Azusa, Citrus, Grand, Sunflower.

Approx 45 miles.....early Sunday AM will take you about 35-40 minutes tops. Not usually much traffic at that time. If you were to take the same drive on-say a Friday afternoon around 1600, you're looking at a good 2-3 hours.

Sunday early afternoon is anybodys guess on traffic, but I wouldn't recommend it if you can help it.

As the crow flies it might be 25 miles, but unless the odometer in every single car I owned was seriously off, when I lived in West Covina, I paced the milage at 43. Taking into account the difference, I come to about 45. I didn't mean that as literal. That's just my edumacated guess. I know for a fact that just the 105 from LAX to the 605 junction is about 15 miles. There is no way in hell that it's only 10 miles from Norwalk to Glendora.

And the nearest GenAv airport to Glendora is Brackett, in La Verne.

I have visited SoCal once, and it is neat, but I don't think I would ever want to live there. Sure the weather is nice, but everything is so land-locked. You would have to drive for at least a hour to find the country. Plus I don't care to deal with earthquakes, forest fires, and mudslides. I do have a cousin that moved out to Costa Mesa, and now lives in Huntington Beach, within view of the ocean. She loves it. If I had to live in SoCal, I would rather live in the San Diego or San Jose area.

I agree..that is something I wish we had easier access to...was the countryside.

You can still see a little of it in the San Jacinto Valley, east of March ARB near Hemet. But it's rapidly being developed. Otherwise you need to drive over the Grapevine into the San Joaquin Valley, or down past the Salton Sea into the Imperial Valley. And neither is an easy drive, unless you live in Santa Clarita or Palm Springs respectively.

Damn MattD, that was a mouthful  Smile:

Myself, I can claim Cypress (lived there 9 months), Corona, and LA. I come to Corona on weekends and leave on Sundays for work. To get to your list....

The rain...peice of $hit. I don't care if non-Californians call us whiners...this is bad.

I didn't know about the expo, what's the exact day? 2 weeks is my anniversary with my girlfriend so I guess that's a negative for me.

Ever ridden the Metrolink? I have...between Riverside and Covina via San Bernardino....it was an interesting ride.

I took the Metrolink many years ago from the Serfas Club station into downtown Riverside. The trains were VERY nice but expensive. Not bad though. My cousin used to take it daily to work in Tustin.

I still want to ride a little of the 2 miles of existing subway track in Los Angeles. It pisses me off that those rich snots in Beverly Hills keep blocking efforts to extend a rail line into West LA. I could have used something like that when I didn't have a car here.

Anyone have FASTRAK? I do, although I rarely use it. It is a handy thing to have whenever the need to drive into OC from here arises. That 91 is a clusterf**k pretty much around the clock.

Fastrak is my savior when I'm coming back home on a Friday night! Since my exit comes right after the toll lanes end, I get to entirely avoid said clusterf*ck on the 91. That and it's pretty easy to cheat and go into the 3+ lane.  Big grin

SPEAKING of which, what's the deal with renaming the stretch of 210 between the Interchange and the Glendora/San Dimas 210 junction the 57?

The 57 don't go through San Dimas! That's the Diamond Bar-Brea-Orange freeway!

The Arrow Highway exit in San Dimas is off the 210.

Even though all the signs have been changed, it will always to me, be the 210.


I know what you mean...that one threw me off the first time I saw it. It's that damn 210 Extension to the 15 that messed it all up. Which reminds me, WHEN are they going to finish the 71 North? I go so fast on that freeway, only to get bottlenecked on either side.

And now what genius thought it would be a good idea to build an equally oversize mall only TWO freaking miles away? Foothill Blvd was already jammed up enough even when that spot was an open field.

I still have to go to the place in Rancho. But from what I hear, It's a lot like The Spectrum, so I might as well stick with something I know.

If you want the best, slimiest, greasiest, but tastiest fried chicken, go to Pioneer in Bell Gardens, right at the corner of Florence and Garfield.

Haven't eaten at Pioneer but I've REALLY been craving some Roscoe's. Have you gotten a chance to check out Miguel's?

I live somewhere in SoCal, 2 miles south of the In'n'Out off of Serfas Club...

Aerobalance, do you live in Sierra Del Oro?

BTW, I'm in San Diego for about 2 months in a year in Pacific Beach in the summer. Does this make me a SoCal'er? haha

Cmon! You know San Diego doesn't count as SoCal.  Big grin


Another question for SoCal'ers. I saw the very first episode of The O.C. (though nobody in Orange County ever calls it that) when it came out and I remember the way they showed Chino, and portrayed the Inland Empire. Anyone hear about that or get offended by that? What would be interesting is an episode where the cast takes a wrong turn and wind up in Garbage Grove (no offense to those that live there). Now THAT is the O.C.

Okay... I'll take a stab:

So exactly how many of you live, or have lived in Southern California?

I grew up in El Monte (look, SOMEBODY had to!). Also lived in Pomona, Glendora, Monrovia, and now make my home in Burbank.

Also, are any of you planning on attending the SoCal Airliner Expo in two weeks?
I'm planning on being there. Maybe we can all meet up, then go watch a few planes while downing a Double-Double....
Nah...maybe we'll 86 the In-N-Out. After all....EVERYBODY will likely want to go there.....most of them won't have cars though. At least we will.

I'd like to go, but I've been living in self-imposed imprisonment trying to get work done, so this is the first I've heard about it. If people are interested, it might be fun to do an LAX-Victorville or LAX-Mohave road trip--I haven't been able to do any photography at the storage facilities yet. Since I've got a minivan, I can take passengers.

Alternately, I'm always up for dinner and drinking. Any of you carnivorous folks been to a Churrascuria yet? There are two--one in West Covina and another in Burbank--that are awesome. All-you-can-eat, and nobody cares if you linger for hours.

Ever ridden the Metrolink? I have...between Riverside and Covina via San Bernardino....it was an interesting ride.

It's pretty cool--I've used it a few times when I lived in Pomona and got cursed with jury duty in downtown LA. Sure beat the San Bernadino freeway.

When are they going to finish the damn 710 between East LA and Pasadena? It's been stalling for over 30 years now!

I predict never. Caltrans already owns a lot of those homes--drive the proposed route and you'll see many of them standing abandoned. The South Pas folks have enough money, though, that I suspect they'll keep this in court forever.

If you want the best, slimiest, greasiest, but tastiest fried chicken, go to Pioneer in Bell Gardens, right at the corner of Florence and Garfield.

There was a Pioneer in El Monte, but I didn't know any of the chain survived the 80s. Still, the slimiest and greasiest chicken award (though I wouldn't call it the best) has to go to Church's. They should sell defibrillators with that stuff.

Speaking of In-N-Out, I live right in the Double-Double Black Hole zone. There are three of them around here....one on Madison/91, further up in Riverside, another at Serfas Club and 91, in Corona, and one on Van Buren, over on the Mira Loma side of Riverside. All are about 6 miles away from me, and not very easy to get to with any degree of speed or ease, which means that I can't get In-N-Out and bring it back home to eat fresh. I have to eat it there.

I used to have a similar problem in Pomona--the closest one was on the east end of town and I lived right off the 57. Fortunately, I can walk to the Burbank restaurant now.  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

The city of San Dimas just isn't the same now that the big Levitz sign has been torn down. It was tall. It was in a state of disrepair. And the cheezy baby blue and pink neon....sheesh....talk about bad colors.... But you could see it coming over the hill from the 210/57/71/10 Interchange heading north, and it was the sign that you were coming home.

I just drove that stretch of road about an hour ago and didn't realize it was missing. Dammit, now I'm gonna be all bummed whenever I have to go to my Monday night class. But since we're talking about that general area, have you ever been to some of the biker bars in Azusa and Glendora? There's a place that I think was called Seamag Strops--I can't recall what street it was on but someone will know--and you could buy sexual aids or drugs in the ladies' room any night of the week. And if you ever really needed a good ass kicking, there would usually be someone there willing to oblige you.

SPEAKING of which, what's the deal with renaming the stretch of 210 between the Interchange and the Glendora/San Dimas 210 junction the 57? The 57 don't go through San Dimas! That's the Diamond Bar-Brea-Orange freeway! The Arrow Highway exit in San Dimas is off the 210. Even though all the signs have been changed, it will always to me, be the 210.

Hmm... I always found the naming of that freeway to be odd, so I've always avoided thinking much about it. My guess is that it has to do with the 210 continuing due east--Caltrans probably didn't want to confuse people by sending the same road in two different directions, so they renamed the section that turned southward.

So how about that Ontario Mills and Victoria Gardens malls?

WAY farther than I'm willing to drive. If I need something from that far away, I'll get it online.

And now what genius thought it would be a good idea to build an equally oversize mall only TWO freaking miles away? Foothill Blvd was already jammed up enough even when that spot was an open field.

The same idiots who keep expanding the retail centers along I-10 in Montclair and Upland. There used to be a "rush hour" on that freeway, but now there is NO time when you can count on it being clear. I'm just glad I can avoid it now by using the 210.

Cheers,
Leanne

I guess I can say that I also live in Socal... Down in SAN... born and raised there. I go up to LA quite a bit nowadays if 7-10 times a month counts. I travel all over the place. I usually travel to Santa Monica, LAX, Hollywood, Long Beach, the Downtown Los Angeles area, and most of Orange County. I don't have a car so I rely on the Public Transit agencies in Southern California and Amtrak to help me get around. Yes I have taken Metrolink quite a few times. Some trips were for fun... Some were for commuting. All in all Socal isn't a bad place to live IMO. I hope you enjoyed reading this... And yes I will be attending that collection show at LAX on the 22nd.

For starters, I know myself, Superfly, and Tom In NO are SoCal Alumni

Born in Pasadena at the Huntington Hospital (blocks from the Rose Parade), I'll claim 4 years in San Marino, 18 years in Claremont, and roughly a year each in Glendale and Azusa. Saxdiva, do I recall you being born at Huntington, as well?

You would have to drive for at least a hour to find the country

That's one thing I was never all that crazy about. It always took at least an hour to get anywhere. But that was just it: take an hour or so's drive (depending on where you were) and you could get to the mountains, the desert, or the beach. So it could work for you or against you.

Down here, you can get anywhere you want within minutes. Except the tallest point within 100 miles is the friggin Industrial Canal overpass.....either that or the 15 foot hill at the Audubon Zoo!

Saxdiva:
Don't feel bad about El Monte. I worked for two and a half years for L.A. County's Aviation Division.....one of our airports was El Monte.....as well as Brackett, mentioned elsewhere in this thread. I made countless treks to the airport on Santa Anita Avenue.

Where's this new Victoria Gardens Mall located?

How about that rain?
My three year old and I were out there the week before Christmas. Not a cloud in the sky the entire 4 days we were out. Got some killer pictures coming into LAX from the east, looking north to the mountains and downtown L.A., etc. Just barely beat the rains out. Claremont was at 7.5 inches yesterday, don't know how much more they've gotten.

I'll go along with the majority on the I-710 issue, it'll never get done.
