I finally manage to get my act together and firmed up my plans. I will be flying down on Thu. to take care of some family stuff and see you guys Sat. morning. Would love to get a ride back on the way home.

Are we doing a group dinner on Sat. night?

I've made plans to leave Sunnyvale by around 5:00PM to the Best Western in San Luis Obispo; it's about 3.5 hours and both me and Melinda will be working a full day so we're just going to hit the road as soon as we're both home (approx. 4:30 or 5:00).
If others are going to be in SLO Friday morning, we could do breakfast together and take off from there as a group.

Melinda cannot handle the twisties so 'our' plan is really just 101 -> 405 to Huntington Beach with a lunch stop somewhere, check into the Huntington Beach Inn around 2:00 or 3:00. Then head down to Dave Hodgkin's for the party!!!

I'm planning on going, it sounds cool to meet a few more people and ride down, but I'm also considering flying down just for the day. I'm in the east bay.

Ok, change in plans. I was checking around Best Western beyond SLO and the BW near Pismo Beach turned out less expensive to the tune of about $40 less per night.

We decided it was worth the extra 16 miles to drive to Pismo as I'm stopping there in both directions. I've come to accept I cannot drive the full 400+ mile in one shot so that's where I'll be staying for 1 night, in each direction. It makes for a less stressful weekend for the both of us.
