Ok, here's a detailed route-map for the ride: BigBasinPageMill.pdf (map on 2nd page). Thanks to SteveE for the detailed surface-route on the way back.
Let's meet between 8:30-9:00am and leave by 9:00am. I'll leave copies of this route under my windshield-wipers for those who arrive late and want to catch up. There's going to be 6 rest-stops along the way to regroup so it shouldn't be a problem for anyone. I've been sick the past 2-months, so I'll probably need them!
Here's the list of attendees from the previous thread:

NOTE: There's a chance that the left-turn halfway down Pagemill might be missed. You'll end up on Moody Road if you go straight. If so, that's OK, just stay on Moody Road and it becomes El Monte and goes under the freeway. On the other side, it'll meet up with Foothill Expressway anyway and put you ahead of the group.
UPDATED 07-April 11:01h: created a gmap route here: Gmap-pedometer.com, says it's about 35 miles.
