Thought perhaps this deserved its own post. Figured there'd not likely be many stragglers from this last weekend's lovely event. :)
Unfortunately, I have a tight window, having only just gotten confirmation for the trip. I've been working to coordinate this trip to CA for my club's national conference next weekend.
We arrive at noon in SMF next Thursday and take off for MCO before 6 in the morning Sunday. Best times to meet would be in the evening, most like.
The problem you're experiencing is that Sacramento is the fuck and gone from LA, the fuck and gone from San Francisco and then when you're there, you're in Sacramento.
You will be a seven hour drive away from me. Sorry. Hope you enjoy it.
