Hmm, and while Santa Barbara or SLO sound fine to me, it might be a little far for the Washingtoners? And the Redwoods really sound like a nice, scenic, ride to me.
If you want a true West Coast meet
the Redwoods would be ideal and the SLK NW Group would put it on our calendar. We love road trips and typically have our highest attendance when we hit the road... Next August we plan on attending the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance.
Yes, this fall we are 'tripped out', after just returning from Las Vegas we have our last road trip of the year next weekend on our Autumn Colors Drive through the beautiful North Cascades Highway for two days.
Due to weather, we'd need a west coast meet to be late enough in the spring or into summer and we'd plan our journey there and book rooms in advance... HEY! On our way down or way back from Pebble Beach would be ideal!
Go for it!
