    Nov. Road trip - FWW family visits

    I have to go to a conference in Burlingame, CA the second week of November. I will be free after lunch on the 11th and would love to visit family around the Bay area and then working my way down the coast to San Diego. On Wednesday, Nov. 10 I will be heading to Yuma and finishing some details on a custom job I did there. Then I am returning to Strawberry - home by Friday.

    So who is up for a family visit?

    Carol, if you want to come North instead of South, I'd love to see you.

    If our schedules mesh, I'd love to have you drop by. I'm a few miles off the 210 freeway northwest of Pasadena. Or maybe I could take a road trip and visit Glenn's shop. (He owes me a tour.)

    Which coast is that, Rob? I didn't think Lake Ontario counted as a coast...

    Its all relative Art. I did that last year with two teenagers should give that a try. Only comment i got from the one who grew up here and is multi generation Canadian was when we got to New Bunswick and he popped his head up and said "man I thought we had a shortage of trees, all i can see are trees." I had to laugh. dont think i will ever forget that or the distance.

    Sorry about the hijack Carol.
    cheers

    OK, folks I hope to hook up with (and who in the past offered to show me their shops) include Vaughn, Glenn, and Bob in Poway.

    I posted this a month early to see if I can hook up with others. Seems to me there is an organ maker up the coast (Chuck?). And I know there are others. Let's hook up and enjoy a visit.

    Cynthia and Rob, I wish I could but time is a constraint. I am bi-vocational and I thought I was retired. Ha! Yet I love what I do both in ministry and in woodworking.

    Strawberry is a beautiful spot. You are welcome. If you have an RV, I have a spot for you to plug in! Come visit the ducks and geese you sent south for the winter. The pond is out back.

    I am just off the 60 freeway (or the I-215 as the two pieces of pavement share the same space for a few miles right by me). It would be an honor and a privelege to show you my humble shop. I will try to answer my cell phone if you call and not ignore you like I did the poor TDW-2010 crew as the drove within a few hundred yards of me .

    Cool. Got your PM.

    Hey Jim, Oceanside is not out of my way!

    So far, Vaughn and Glenn confirmed.

    Carol,

    I'm about 30-40 miles east of Burlingame. Depending on what your plans are, I could meet you, say for lunch, or you could come here for dinner and stay overnight, or whatever fits into your schedule.
