so Edward... does this mean Kandy is driving the cayman or is she riding shotgun with you again? i think she's afraid to get shown up by a group of roadsters... :D

as usual Tom, thanks for plotting what looks to be a great route..........

Kandy and i have a couple favorites and a couple new places we'd like to try, i'll get a list from her (i'm terrible at planning). Route wise it looks great as we'll pass very close to where we usually go anyway.

When we go, the wineries let us split a sampling (as long as we use the same cup) and in this way we can get about 4-5 wineries in before we get buzzed (and start buying everything we try). Bring your wives, it'll be fun. Also remember, if you don't like the wine, they have a bucket for you to pour it out in...you don't HAVE to drink everything they pour. this keeps you from getting drunk on lousy wine (which you'll always find some on sampling trips).

I don't think kandy wants to take her cayman, but i'll ask. It IS MORE FUN to go with a mate or friend, so keep that in mind.

OOOPS! Sorry, I got the dates mixed up. I won't be able to make it on the 27th. DARN!

Anyone free for this weekend? Oct. 20th?

I'm fine with Nov. 3 but please don't push the date just because of one person. If Oct 27 works for everyone then it's okay. I can come the next time around.

I would rather wait for a day when Eddy is available. I think Scott, Tom, and Eddy are really the core of our SoCal group and it would be a shame if any of you guys couldn't make it.

my only request is that you all set a date and then stick to it.

I keep changing my plans around trying to make it and when the date changes it REALLY creates a mess for me.

So is NOV 3 locked down?

Plan A:Nov.3 (Sat)
Tslick
Cyberdrakon and KayWman

Edit: Sorry Tom, I didn't notice that you edited post #1 to November 3. So Nov. 3 it is.

The Ghost, can you make it? Any word from 320SLK? 9Moon? MBSLRwannabe? SLKtyperice? B55? etc.? I know there's at least one at San Diego county, and one in Huntington Beach (female).
