The Nethercutt Collection features rare collectibles ranging from mechanical musical instruments and antique furniture to the true heart of the collection: over 250 American and European automobiles dating from 1898 to 1997.
Founder J.B. Nethercutt spent a lifetime establishing this collection of historic importance. Unique to automobile museums, each car on display is attentively serviced and maintained to remain as drivable as when the vehicle originally rolled off the showroom floor. On view are various Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance winners and cars once owned by movie stars, royalty and other notable personalities.
The entire collection is housed in two beautifully appointed exhibit facilities located just north of Los Angeles. Just steps outside the Museum are a resplendently restored steam locomotive and railcar.
Time: 8:45 am – Meet in front of the Nethercutt Museum. There is plenty of free parking.
The Tour: The first part of our visit will be a self-guided tour of the Auto Museum. The Collection across the street is a guided tour starting promptly at 10:00 am and is approximately 2 hours in length. After the guided tour, we will visit a beautifully restored locomotive and Pullman Private Car at 12:30. Bring some snacks, as lunch will be after our tours.
Lunch: After the tour, we will go to the “Bear Pit Bar-B-Que located at 10825 Sepulveda Blvd, Mission Hills. The Bear Pit has been has been a local favorite for over 50 years and features Louisiana style BBQ. http://bearpitbbq.com
Cost: Admission at all the facilities and parking is free. Space is limited during the holiday season. In addition to your RSVP on Meetup, please send me an email to confirm. Contact Menard Jaramillo at email@example.com or (323) 804-4700.

Party, 10:00 PM
This is has become a Great Outdoors tradition, our sixth year, to have a New Year's Eve celebration starting with a familiar hike followed by a potluck party. We'll make the trek from the Griffith Park Observatory (parking lot) to the top of Mt. Hollywood. This is the same route we take on our regularly scheduled Monday Night Hike. It’s a great opportunity to visit with friends and savor the city lights. Ring in the New Year with games, a hearty meal and bubbly. We'll hand out the address and a map to our party location at the hike. So bring your good cheer, a potluck dish, beverage, or desert to share.
8:00 PM - We gather at the Griffith Park Observatory parking lot, opposite from Observatory, at the Mt. Hollywood trail sign.

Great Outdoors is comprised of five Chapters located in the southern part of California. Each Chapter creates their own overnight trips for camping (cars, tents & RVs), backpacking, off roading, etc. During our annual conference (held in October each year), the five Chapters compile the calendar.
The calendar dates are for planning purposes only. Dates may change and trips may be canceled due to weather, problems getting campground reservations, schedule conflicts, etc.
