The first Cruisin’ to the Carrier event West Coast Challengers scheduled, was aboard the USS Ronald Reagan. This time the club’s target was set for the USS Midway. Members were treated to scenic coastal cruise to the San Diego harbor for a tour aboard the USS Midway Museum.

The USS Midway is one of America’s longest-serving aircraft carriers. West Coast Challengers members entered a floating city at sea and walked in the footsteps of 225,000 Midway sailors who served our country and upheld the American ideals of strength, freedom and peace. A truly overwhelming experience!

From practicing their fighter pilot skills in the flight simulators, to enjoying real life planes and helicopters, the club had over four levels of history to explore from.

While on the ship, some West Coast Challengers members got a little too excited about bringing back a souvenir or a possible mod for the club’s next Come Mod Your Car Day.

The USS Midway offers so many different places and things to see it was almost difficult to stay focused in one place for more than five minutes at a time!

Walking up all the stairs and various decks worked up our appetites so the members decided on a club photo before heading for lunch.

Club members then headed back to their cars and to begin the famous West Coast Challengers caravan we are known for.

Our final mission of the day involved invading the streets of San Diego with a short caravan to feed the hungry crew of Mopar enthusiasts at a local Chilis!

Mission Accomplished! Another incredible day spent in the West Coast Challengers car club!
