    Darn. It's an easy drive for me, but I'm committed to other plans that day. Next time...

    Between the Bay Area and LA its about 400 mile, a 7 hour drive on Interstate 5 and a lot longer if you take the 1 or the 101. (I usually do the trip in 5-6 hours to "the city" or to Vallejo where most of my family lives)

    The cheapest way between LA and the Bay that I have found is using www.gotobus.com, way better than greyhound and cheaper. It is operated by the same companies that put together those bus trips to Indian Casinos. My mother in law takes it all the time. About $60 round trip.

    SAKP, I gotta get you to think big. If you win the lottery, you will charter buy a plane!

    Quoting myself here:
    *IF* I was able to do that would anyone be able to drive me around? I hate to ask but it'd really be awesome if one of you non-creepy people could help me out. Unless Plaza Cutlery is close to Grand Station (or whatever it's called) then I'll use my legs for transportation.

    If it's western PA I might be able to show up. Or we could do a western NY/western PA/ NE Ohio thing and everyone can come to Niagara Falls ;)

    Edit: you Ontario folk would be welcome too :)

    Looks like it might be Wednesday, September 5 sometime probably around 6 or so. I'm going to be in the 'ville for the Emergency Services Conference, so I figured SAKplumber knew all the good places for grub. We're going to LaBamba's for a "burrito as big as your head."

    The Powerball is up to like 150 million this weekend. If I won and I tried really hard to cut back here and there, I'm sure we could afford a trip to Cali... :p

    Ahem, I am actually driving up tomorrow, if you want to start a new thread for a meetup for next weekend, depending on my schedule I can meet up. Just in time for the Dodgers vs Giants home stand.

    I don't know; I've only been there once. You should know since you're a local.

    It is the one that's downtown. I know that Tower lives close and I live about 20 mins away (no traffic), the problem is the dreaded traffic downtown. Are there any other stations you can get to that is away from downtown?

    I'd have to check the Amtrak site. I don't know which locations they go to.

    Santa Ana is the closest stop to the plaza. Anaheim,Irvine or Orange is pretty close too.

    A meetup during the week up here would be awesome! (as long as it happens after work.. ) Next weekend is my 5yr anniversary, I'm pretty sure I've got plans that weekend. ;)
