Re: meet up in Los Angeles Hollywood Area

Jamie,

You are thinking about it all wrong.

You are thinking like and economy car driver. Worried about every nickel and dime. Tsk, tsk.

Learn to think like a true Sportmobiler.

Wrap your head around all the fun times you will have. Long after you've paid off the bank loans you will still be having fun and visiting places you've only read about.

Mike

The problem is Mike I have never thought like an economy driver and have always thought like a true Sportsmobiler...

My dad always said I had a Champagne appetite and a soda pop budget...I do its true at least for the past few years...

I am trying to do the van with all cash only, no credit cards, no loans so I can go places and do things with it.

I really like this...

"Wrap your head around all the fun times you will have. Long after you've paid off the bank loans you will still be having fun and visiting places you've only read about."

I think about that kind of thing every day...where is that winning lottery ticket so I can get started...I have to buy SMB stuff...

meet up in Los Angeles Hollywood Area

Just trying to prepare.

I read theres no drinking water there.

Do they have running water?

Should we make reservations?

Anything to do there to keep toddlers busy?

I'm planning on heading up Friday afternoon and staying till Sunday afternoon.

Re: meet up in Los Angeles Hollywood Area

Thanks OCSMB for making it happen. I had a feeling there would be interest in getting together.

I was called out of town with some medical issues but would also like to attend.

I think it is a much better venue to be actually putting the SMB to use as opposed to just hanging out at a tennis club. My idea was simply to gather in a special parking lot we have and then have everyone at the club for poolside and bar activities as my guest. We can always do that in the future.

I think meeting in Gorman is much more adventurous.

Excellent job......

Thanks copes. I hope I'm not stealing your thunder. Just wanted to help get the ball rolling. I'd be down for a meet at your tennis club anytime. OC is just down the freeway from you.

Re: meet up in Los Angeles Hollywood Area

So it looks like I will be attending the event...

I (maybe we on Saturday night)will be camping Friday and Saturday nights...

Who else is going to be spending either or both nights?

Thanks for the plans...

This is starting to look like quite the gathering. So, who all is coming now?
