We are not quite yet sure we will make it to the drive, but we might make it for the lunch. We will let you know by March 9th or sooner. The menu looks yummy! Are there any vegan options or choices? We can send out the invite to our Sacramento Valley SLK Enthusiasts if you like on Face book, let me know ok.
Thank you

OK, Steve, just made my reservations at BW Plus Lighthouse in Pacifica for Friday and Saturday night.
So go ahead and book us for the lunch with your group also.

If anyone else wants to head up north, let me know.

Steve, weather forecast calls for rain for the next 7 days. What's the status of your meet? Wife is thinking maybe another time would be better.

Hi Peter,

We go rain or shine, but of course, I understand if you would rather not. The current forecast is 60% chance of showers. In all the events I have been to since January of 2005, we have never cancelled due to weather and very few have really had rain. I can't think of any where we didn't have at least part of the time to drop tops...

We continue to pray to the weather gods...:hail:

Steve, we decided we'll try again another time.
500 plus miles each way for marginal weather was more than the wife wanted to do.
She says it's good that you seem to meet fairly often.

I totally understand...we will miss you. :(

But you are always welcome at our events....we try to have the third Saturday of each month except December, but sometimes, we don't have a leader step up and there is a month missed (not sure about April due to a business trip, unless someone steps up)...:)

Steve, hope you guys had a great day today.

With the heavy rain down here, I had a fairly productive day today.. a lot of housekeeping chores got done in preparation for a 2 day stayover from mother-in-law in the next few days:(.

Steve, just saw the pictures, thanks. Looks like a great trip and fun time for all.
Just dawned on me that it was almost 1 year ago we missed the hookup in Cambria.
I do plan on taking some more (driving) trips up north this year..maybe as far north as Oregon or Washington.

Only other trip planned is we're taking our niece to Florida for Harry Potter and Disney World in June. Rest of the year should be pretty flexible.

The Yosemite SLK trip looks interesting also.

Hi Peter,

Yes, we had a great time. i also ran by our other coordinators, the idea of another San Simeon/cambria run again in October and all were in favor of it. We are looking at the weekend of the 20th and starting to talk it up; this Itime I won't be moving!
:Beer:.

You'll be in our neck of the woods! If you can tear yourselves away from Universal and Disney we would really enjoy meeting you! Let me know!

Sorry I didn't reply earlier, took mother in law to an Indian Casino and just got back (not soon enough).

Would love to meet you also..
We'll be staying at the Hyatt Place Orlando Universal from 6/13 to 6/20/12.
We have a 3 day ticket for Disney World and a "14 day" 3 park ticket for Universal.
We're hoping to squeeze in Cape Canaveral also.

We're letting our niece decide which parks and how often.

I suspect if we meet it'll either be a breakfast or dinner.

Any hints/tips on the park attractions will be appreciated.

Peter

Can't wait to see her reaction this weekend when we tell her about this trip. We're giving this to her as an early Xmas present and will be given just after her birthday present from us, which is a hot air balloon ride.

My birthday's coming up soon, will you adopt me?

I will speak with my kids regarding the attractions, they frequent the parks, my hubby and I haven't been to them in awhile. I can pm you with the info. We will meet you anytime, anywhere as we are only 30 minutes away!
