Oh so now it won't be so hard to get people out to Calaveras again?

I saw HitAnyKey42 on wine.woot! and clicked "I want one!"

No, I'll be in LA on the 2nd and 8th (and SD in between). Therefor Mark should plan to leave town lest he leaves it up to the universe to do something to one of us to prevent whatever it is would happen if our paths crossed.

I still don't have time to get up to wine country :/

Edit: Actually that's not 100% true, I might have half a day free while I'm up in Sacramento next month... Where to sneak off to...

Lodi is close. We had a good time tasting there between Calaveras and Napa.

And even then, depending on who you deal with at the counter, you still often have to spend time trying to convince them you do this ALL the time, and this is an appropriate packing useable for wine.



Perhaps it's time to change your signature?

So it was a good thing I missed the Clambake??

Besides, we need to have a gathering to celebrate "Clash of the Titanics"!

One question ... Mud or Jello?


Edit: Plus, it's not like I can go to the Amador one on Nov. 2nd, and Paso on Nov. 9th. It's one or the other dude!

It won't be hard to get mommadeb and bahwm and me out there. We have more trails in the Calaveras Big Tree State Park to cover. And unlike Sparky, I don't mind the peacefulness of no cell reception.

Yes, it is peaceful. But then again, so is the grave!

And it wasn't peaceful when receiving a dozen (so it seemed) notifications when passing thru Jackson everytime!

I haven't been home for several weekends in a row, and my house misses me.

I was tempted, especially with the Unicorn Horn sold with it, but those sold out, and just the shirt wasn't worth it.

I got extra luck this time... told the guy at Southwest curbside check in wine was in Styrofoam, and the Styrofoam is in a plastic bag... he didn't even open it to check..
