SF Bay area get-2-gether location

The Baylands, 2775 Embarcadero Road, in Palo Alto, http://www.cityofpaloalto.org/depts/csd ... ylands.asp will be the spot.

June 7, 11:00am to whenever you get tired or bored. All SMB's, and all Sprinters from the bay area. Totally unofficial, with no planning and no respect. However, the event is homogenized, pasteurized and may be dangerous to your heath.

If you may come, please go to my blog, www.ourexcellentadventures.com and post a comment stating what you will be driving.

Regards,

Keith

Hi Keith--How was the Sprinter get-together on Saturday? Did you have many turn out?

We had a great time! 4 or 5 non-Sprinter SMB's and 4 or 5 Sprinters. Two of those (including mine) were SMB. One person with a Sprinter on the line at SMB. And we had kids and a cat.

Looked, talked, drank a little beer - lots of fun under the sun! Next time we go to a place with shade!

The more you look at SMB's, the more you appreciate what you have! It was good to see the 4wd's. That crowd are quite inventive and make me want a CJ5 to pull behind the Sprinter (maybe we should call them SMBS).

These are some pics silkwan (from a different forum) took - he apoligized for the contrast - too busy talking.




The red Sprinter is the original Brian Lopes 55 seen on the SMB site.

Had there been a contest, no doubt I would have won but there would have been some close seconds. One 4wd was about the same color as mine and just impeccable.

Regards,

Keith

Re: SF Bay area get-2-gether location

Greetings from a new Sprinter owner,

I live in Folsom and bought a 2008 170 Sprinter last Dec. My wife and I toured the Fresno plant last year. What we are seeking are SMB owners in the area that we could visit and tour their layouts. We are looking closely at the layout 110S. My wife wants to see and get the feel of the interior spaces before signing up. She has a difficult time reading spaces from a paper plan. If anyone near us would like a visit from a couple in need of advise, we would be appreciate it.

Best regards,

Craig and Jane

We're in Wilton, east of ELk Grove, so just down Sunrise or Grantline/White Rock from you. Did anyone contact you? My wife is the same about the paper plans. We hope to tour the plant soon, but want to visit with other SMB owners around Sacramento.
