DescriptionAnnouncing the 2012 SCMA Cemetery Tour!

Come join us for a hair-raising 200-mile procession and add another pin to your vest at the 2012 SCMA Cemetery Tour. Beginning in bloodcurdling Bakersfield, we will wind through the menacing mountains and frightening forests around Lake Isabella, visiting the lonely resting spots of people long gone. With one exception, these graveyards and cemeteries sit alone and forgotten. If you arrive and it looks like Rose Hills, you took a wrong turn did you?

This little Creepfest will originate in the lobby of the Best Western Crystal Palace Hotel on Buck Owens Boulevard between 6:30 and 9:00am on Sunday, October the 28th, 2012 and will come to its final stop at Union Cemetery where the circle comes to an end.

As is our morbid custom, there will be a coroners inquest with questions that can only be answered by the secrets indelibly etched in the headstones of the silent ones.

This Tour, the penultimate Travelers Award ride of 2012 (look it up), carries the bargain price of 10 bucks per head. As always, ghosts ride free. Because the Cemetery Tour occurs on Sunday, Saturday provides prodigious possibilities that lurk around every corner. The journey from Los Angeles to Bakersfield is normally an hour and a half, but properly executed, it can take all day. We suggest you set out on Saturday and Ride Your Own Ride to Bakersfield, be it on Highway 33, 166, 58, 178, Sherman Pass or what ever other path you conjure up. Try not to get lost because only God knows what will happen to you.

We have a temporary resting place set aside for you at the Best Western Crystal Palace for Saturday night the 27th of October. This hotel is very nice and features a pool, Jacuzzi, barbeques and much more. The rooms are $65 plus tax for a double and include breakfast at the hotel caf. Reservations must be made by the 26th of September for this rate. The hotel is located at 2620 Buck Owens Boulevard in Bakersfield CA. The phone number is 661-327-9651. Be sure to mention the SCMA Cemetery Tour. You are guaranteed to sleep soundly because you will be dead tired.

Very special thanks to John Codd, Cemetery Specialist for the Kern County Historical Society, for his assistance in the planning of this undertaking. For more information, call Steve at 562-298-6236 or e-mail at Come if you dare and do not forget to invite your pallbearers. The more the merrier.
